Let me introduce you to our Romanian nourishing and delicious soup (borş) with lovage leaves (leuştean). You can use any kind of meat for this soup. I used duck because we’ve had enough chicken soups over the past months and we prefer vegetable-meat soups. Lovage leaves are used as a herb for flavouring the Romanian sour soups of any kind. Nothing can beat the unique flavour of lovage and you can use it much like you would celery and parsley. It’s fairly difficult to find it here and for this reason I tried growing my own plant in a pot. It grew nicely during the summer but died every winter when I moved it indoors… will try again next year but this time in the back yard, not a pot .
