I found this while researching for the RPG. Thought you guys might like to try it on a cold winter day.

Plomeek Soup

1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup butter
4 cups carrots, peeled and chopped
5 cups celery, chopped
4 cups chicken stock [NOTE: VULCANS PREFER VEGETABLE STOCK]
1 teaspoon pepper
salt
[KIRK VERSION: ½ CUP HEAVY CREAM]
Melt the ½ butter in a saucepan and saute the onions over low heat until transparent. Add the remaining butter, melt, and add the carrots--cooking over low heat until browned, about 30 minutes. Add the celery and cook 10 more minutes on low heat. Pour in the stock, salt, and pepper, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let soup simmer for about an hour.

When ready to serve, ladle into bowls--unless you want to try Captain Kirk's version. In that case, go ahead and stir in the cream. Much good it will do you.

Interesting.  Sounds yummy.  The odd thing is many years ago I had a recipe for this too (not sure where it is now) and I thought it was more like a tomato based soup.  Gotta see if I can find that.

I remember that as well, Rico, it should be tomato based as it is red in color (See Amok Time for a splattering of it on the corridor wall!).

I think the source of this recipe is Voyager... See the link for a description of who's recipe it is. Apparently the cook from this show altered it slightly.

Was it to be spicy as well, or was that just what Neelix had done? For some reason I thought it was a spicy soup

Much to Tuvok's chagrin!

Here's one with Tomato Paste in it.

                         -for garnish

   "Plommek soup is tradtionally served with a spoonful
   of sour cream on top; this is carefully swirled out
   with a spoon to amke a spiral shape, representative of
   the galaxy. The outline of the galaxy is then
   emphasized with very finely chopped parsley. for less
   festive occaisions, it may be served with a small
   spoonful of butter (or maragarine) in the centre. In
   the pot, melt the butter and when it is foamy, add the
   onion and fry until golden. Add everything else to the
   pot except the last cup of water and the sour cream
   and parsley garnishes. simmer, covered, for about 15
   to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes and carrots are
   tender. Run it all through the blender, about 1 to 1
   1/2 cups at a time. When it is all pureed, rinse the
   cooking pot with the cup of water and add that to the
   'empty' blender. Run the blender for a few seconds and
   then slosh the water about to get as much of the
   vegetable puree as possible off the sides of the
   blender. Add this liquid to the soup. Pour the soup
   back into the cleaned out pot and reheat it before
   serving (use very gentle heat). Ladle into bowls.
   Garnish with sour cream and parsley as described above.
