A collection of some (but not all) of my favorite soups. One of the things I love about soup is the versatility and forgiveness. As long as you have a good broth as your base, everything else is just icing on the cake. Mix and match, alter and adjust. The broth is your canvas. Bring it to life with your ingredients. And just to get you started, please enjoy the recipes I've brought together for you.
COOKBOOK PREVIEW (14 recipes)
Garam Masala Cream Soup I found this recipe on the Spice Islands Garam Masala jar. It's very yummy and is bursting with flavor. Its quick and easy which is wonderful for those busy days during the week.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (It even tastes good the next day, cold.)
Beef Stew I have been using this recipe for over 20 years. It came from my Betty Crocker cookbook. I sometimes will alter the recipe slightly by adding more beef, garlic...and various herbs and spices and what ever veggies I have on hand. It's a great starter recipe.
My Roasted Turkey Barley Soup My husbands aunt gave me the idea of making turkey soup years ago and roasting the carcass prior to boiling it for the broth. The aroma is wonderful! I don't make measurements as this will always vary depending on the size of the carcass and how much the broth reduces. The instructions will be a bit loose since most ingredients added are on the fly depending on whats on hand and what smells good in the spice cupboard. Hopefully this recipe will give you an idea then you can just fly with it according to your tastes.
Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup I was looking for a creamy tomato soup recipe...I found a couple that appealed to me so I sorta combined them and came up with something that I thoroughly enjoyed
Lemon and Coriander Soup I needed a gentle, soothing soup. This recipe was brought to my attention and I love it! Not only did it meet my requirements but it is extremely simple and quick to make
Tortilla Soup My daughter told me how much she likes tortilla soup, so I figured I should make some. This recipe was inspired by Guy Fieri but didn't really stick to his recipe.
Julia Child's Creamy Mushroom Soup I found myself in the possession of 2 lbs of fresh morel mushrooms. I have to say, this is the best mushroom soup I have had the pleasure of cooking and eating.
Rich, Creamy Chicken and Noodle Soup Simple, tasty and all around very satisfying soup. This was adapted from a recipe I got from King Arthur Flour.
Karen's (aka Gigi) Creamy Tomato Soup Karen shared this recipe with us over in the forums and I have to say...it's fabulous!!! Thank you Karen! :)
Tuscan Bean and Tomato Soup This is a fabulous, hearty Irish soup recipe that I found in the L.A.Times Food Section. When I made it, I halved the recipe since it serves an army and well, I didn't have an army to serve.
Beef Tortilla Soup I had some beef broth that I needed to use....and decided to take my chicken tortilla soup recipe and change it to beef. Loved it!
Celery Soup with Potatoes, Leeks, and Rice (Julia Child style) I was in the mood for a potato soup. Came across the recipe in Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume Two. It's amazing! Simple flavors blended together to make a deliciously clean soup. I do believe this is now one of my favorite soups. Ever
Lady and Sons Chicken Pot Pie I LOVE the puff pastry as the topping for this dish. The filling is a bit rich. You can use half and half or just plain milk to tone it down or "lighten" it up. You can add a little more milk or cream to get the consistency you like. The flavor was wonderful. I love making them into individual serving sizes.
This dish is quick and easy. Especially if you were to use leftover chicken. It's hearty and filling...perfect for those cold winter nights coming up
White Cheddar and Cauliflower Soup The flavor is smooth and tangy. The garnishments are a must! They add additional flavor, especially the lemon zest which adds a nice, fresh zing!
