Bouneschlupp/ Green Bean Soup/ Luxembourg soup
This is the country's national dish but the pictures do not do justice to the dish and I am sure people may get disillusioned.
But the taste is awesome. It has that homely feel and I enjoyed it as much as my soup loving husband.
You may pronounce bouneschlupp as you read ...end it with a slurpp..
It probably means green bean soup. I made the soup using french beans which are known as green beans there. Traditionally it is made with pieces of ham or bacon as topping but I had to do without it considering we dont eat. I did not miss a thing, but you may consider adding bread croutons which I feel would give the crunch we get from bacon strips my assumption
