What is your favorite soup?

I thought we could take a break from politics and have a little fun. I got this inspiration from looking at that chicken noodle soup on Buzz's article. 

Tell us what your favorite soup is..

No politics, religion and be polite.

Thank you..

Its soo good, I put kale in mine instead of the spinach, but that could be good too. You can actually get the progresso canned lentil soup as a base and add the sausage and other things you want in it.

Sounds like you are very health conscious! (Actually I've starting adding Kale, or Collards to many things as well).

You can actually get the progresso canned lentil soup as a base and add the sausage and other things you want in it. 

I'm a bit of a "health nut" so I no longer eat anything that comes from a can (unless its labeled "BPA-Free Can"). And also, most canned products are usually loaded with salt, sugar, and/or some artificial sweetener.

But when I used too, IIRC Progresso brand soups were probably the tastiest ones.

I am, I try to eat healthy, I love fruit and veggies. Hate lettuce though, I use to eat it but it has to taste. My salads are cut up veggies. I see you like eating healthy too.. good for you. You are right, canned soups are loaded with sodium.

Good lettuce, just about any variety, is pretty healthy.

Apparently there's one exception-- and its often one of the most widely served-- Iceberg Lettuce. It seems its not very nutritious compared to other types.

I like mixed lettuces-- usually buy " Spring Mix" clamshells. (Organic only). Since I only shop at Whole Foods (best selection of healthy foods but also to save money) I usually get their own brand. Or sometimes I get "half and Half" which is half mixed lettuces and half Baby Spinach.

Iceberg lettuce?  Nothing like it on a bologna sandwich.  It's tasteless, odorless, but it adds a nice crunch.

I cook all my own meals. 

One of my favourite soups is home-made Chicken soup, although I like other types of soups as well.

One day I realized an easy way to have even more variety. So sometimes I now make Chicken Soup (using a lot of water and broth), but sometimes I use the same recipe to make a different dish-- Chicken Stew. (Indenticle recipe, but one is made using lots of liquid to make a soup-- the other was made with a minimal amount of liquid-- to make a stew!

I have noticed that very often when a company "improves" an old classic they either water it down, or add even more salt and/or sugar --or worse yet HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) which should be outlawed.....and usually add even more mysterious chemicals whose names you can't pronounce!

French Onion or Bean with Bacon, closely followed by Split Pea with Ham.  Got the split pea from my dad who got it from the WWII US Navy.  It used to be a regular item on their menu.  My mom taught me the Bean recipe.  The onion is actually one of the regular soups at Denny's.  Darned good the way they make it.  With soups, I figure, the thicker the better.  Similar with coffee.  If you put a spoon in the cup and it leans against the side, it's too weak.  If the spoon stands up, it's approaching strong enough.  However, you know it's good if the spoon dissolves.

Hi TTGA,  That's a good way to tell for thickness. French onion with lots of cheese, bean and bacon is good too. I don't care for peas, but I heard that soup is delicious. I never tried it.

We called that campfire coffee, simply boil the grounds in the big urn for however long it takes the spoon to dissolve.

A bit of ash from the embers along with some pine needles added to the flavor and texture of the brew.

And then when the fire got just right we would make up a batch of s'mores

Oh, the memories!

Your picture of the noodle soup looks mighty tasty...as I sit here having finished my instant oatmeal, already hungry again.

But nothing beats homemade tomato soup, with a grilled Velveeta cheese sandwich on the side.

The best of all comfort foods. My other favorite is old fashioned handmade hamburgers washed down with a genuine chocolate malt,

The soup can be just plain tomato, or can be fancied up with various additions of other delicious stuff.

There several ways to get around that.

Traditionally, adding a piece of Kombu (a type of sea weed) to the cooking water is supposed to help although I don't know if it works.

Also, I've read that after cooking beans, drain the cooking water then rinse them thoroughly. (If they're canned, rinse them thoroughly before and after cooking).

Another way that supposedly works is to totally stop eating all beans for a while. Then very, very gradually start again-- with a max of 1 Tablespoon (or a even only 1 teaspoon) at a meal. Then gradually work up, say, 1/2 cup at a meal.

BTW I have noticed that many people living in bean-eating cultures seem to have adopted to beans and mostly don't have that problem.

And while they're not my favourites (except for lentils) , the following beans/legumes  are supposedly the easiest to digest: Mung, Lentil, Split Peas.

That's right, I forgot about that.  My sister lives over there, about 30 miles north of Sydney.  She puts a lot of recipes over on FB and, lately, they've mostly been casseroles and other baked food.  The winter must be giving her the chance to keep the oven on more.

beef stew

EG, check out the beef stew recipe I put in the Cookbook Group.  I got that one from my dad, who got it from his mom.  She was the cook in a lumber camp in the 1890's and made the stuff regularly a hundred gallons at a time.  Not only did she get great praise as a cook at that camp, but she also got a husband and twelve kids.  She was one tough lady, she had to be with seven boys.

Beans make most people toot, even if some women deny it with all of their fiber, lol.

Yep.  Add in a couple of bottles of beer and it increases range, volume and odor.  The ladies might still deny it but most of the guys I knew when I was a kid bragged about it and held contests.  One rule we did observe was that, while you may have bean soup and beer, never never never, add sauerkraut to that meal.  A couple of guys (luckily not me) established that rule.jrSmiley_27_smiley_image.gif

I normally follow the recipe from my dad's old Betty Crocker. I'll go check yours out now.

EDIT: It's very close to my recipe. If I'm not sending soup to my mom, I'll through in some turnip. Also instead of corn starch I flour the beef and brown it. Add bay leaf, garlic and onion for flavor while the meat is simmering.

French Onion Soup - one of my favourite clients was a French restaurateur named Gaston who prepared the most incredible French onion soup.  The cheese on top would stick to the spoon and stretch so he served a pair of scissors with it.  It was famous in Toronto.

Going to make some potato soup later today.

Dear Brother Kavika: Three Sisters is very big up here with the Native American Nations who signed and are members the 5 voting and one non-voting confederation of Tribal nations.

My Mother used to make A Russian String Bean Soup with Onions and other fresh picked vegetables. Delicious!

Nothing better than a bowl of hot soup when its cold outside. 

During warmer months. a bowl of cold soup hits the spot.

Borsht, a beet soup with cold sour cream in summer, and a baked potato nice and hot in winter is also good. 

Nice article Kathleen.

I enjoyed reading it, and all the comments.

Enoch.

I'm quite fond of a soup/stew made with chicken, turnips, kale, mushrooms, onions, and white wine.

Don't knock it 'til you try it. It might surprise you.

I found a basic recipe online to show that calls for cremini mushrooms, but any will work. I think I prefer portobello. It also might be better to use 2 or 3 cups of kale instead 4.

That looks so delicious. I put kale in my lentil soup.

I'm not sure what zuppa del giorno is, but I'd eat it every day.

LOL.  "Zuppa del giorno" means "soup of the day".

all my life I used to have soup before the main course, but here they have it AFTER the main course.  Maybe there's a reason, but I don't know it.

Well that's because China is on the other side of the Globe-- so they do everything the opposite. (I still haven't figured out why they don't fall off).

I have a friend who grew up on a farm in Montana. He told me that in the spring his mother would feed all the kids something called "fruit soup".

The purpose was to cleanse the digestive system. It looks pretty good to me.
