EXCLUSIVE: Chef Jan shares his boerewors soup recipe

Boerewors is a South African staple – we could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and sometimes we do.

Breakfast with Martin Bester

Thanks to Michelin star chef, Jan-Hendrik van der Westhuizen, we now have another way to enjoy this local favourite. 

Have you ever had leftover boerewors after a braai and had no clue how to transform it into another meal? Jan has really shown us some love and shared a unique and exclusive recipe on Breakfast with Martin Bester, a recipe we cannot wait to try it out!

Here’s how he makes his much-loved boerewors soup:


Chopped leftover boerewors



Fresh parsley


Chicken or beef stock

Dash of cream

Stirfry it until it is smokey

Put it into a blender 

Get your desired texture by adding more cream and to finish it off add fresh coriander and a few shavings of parmesan.

It sounds absolutely delicious and a perfect meal for your mom on Mothers Day!
