What are your favourite soup recipes...

Recommended Posts

My favourite is tomato and red pepper which Libby makes - she doesn't have a written recipe - she just wings it.  

 

My least favourite - no my pet hate - is her broccoli soup (or anyone's broccoli soup for that matter).

I'm a dab hand at improvising with soups depending on what's available at the time. However our current favourite is this one:

 

Celeriac and Bramley apple soup

 

AlanHo can preemptively add it to his pet hate list.

 

Second on our list is my own Romanesque and blue cheese which we already know he doesn't like.

When I make soup I don't feel the need to use a recipe. I just bung in whatever I fancy and whatever is available.

The idea of cooked blue cheese is bad enough but, combined with apple and cream in a soup, almost has me retching.

Leek & Potato.

 

Extremely simple with or without a soup machine:

 

1 large potato, chopped

2 medium leeks, chopped

2 or 3 shallots or a small onion, chopped

2 chicken Oxo cubes or 1 dessertspoon chicken Bovril

Make up to 1 litre with water in a soup machine and cook on the "smooth" setting. Alternatively, cook in a saucepan until the vegetables are tender and then liquidise.

 

Season to taste and serve with a swirl of cream and some crisp fried bacon pieces, if you like.

As said previously, I just use whatever takes our fancy, and have a taste part way through and adjust if required. It’s easy to be tied down with recipes, I am a great believer in a little bit of what you fancy does you good.

I'm also an experimenter (comes from many years of being a product development chemist) but when I find something that is worth keeping and perhaps passing on to others, I will do that.

Having a little of what I fancied has got me into the soup

Hasn't it to many of us?

Latest one cauliflower and cheddar, we had a cheap cauli from the local veg shop and some cut price cheese. add the two together and very nice it was !

 

1 red onion

salted butter & or oil (not castrol or WD40)

1 large potato

1 Cauliflower cut into florets 

Stock ( we used beef as that's what cubes I'd got )

Cheddar cheese, grated. 

 

Finely dice the onion, peel and dice the potato, chuck in pan with hot oil & or melted butter. Cook until onion goes soft, you can caramelise it if you want a bit of sweetness. Add a teaspoon of turmeric and ground pepper to taste.  Add the cauliflower and enough stock, no need to cover it completely or it'll get a bit thin.

Bring to boil with lid on pan until cauliflower is cooked then liquidise or blitz with stick blender. Put back in sauce pan and simmer, add grated cheese to your own personal taste, stirring gently to blend in. We like quite a lot of cheese in ours.
