Mustard soup is a simple soup with a mild mustard flavor and a thickening roux base. It traditionally uses a Dutch condiment called zaanse mosterd, a flavorful, biting stone ground mustard. In the Netherlands, this soup is typically eaten on Saturday, which is generally considered a “soup day," but among the Dutch in America, it is enjoyed whenever a light, warming meal is desired.
