Re: Soup's on!!

My favourite soup at the moment is a spinach and coconut soup - very easy to make, too!  Melt a knob of butter in a deep pan, add a chopped onion, a couple of cloves of chopped garlic, and cook for 5 minutes, then add 500g spinach, a pint of chicken stock, salt, and pepper, and simmer for 2 - 3 minutes.  Add a can of coconut milk (full fat one is best), bring back to the boil whilst stirring, then remove from the heat and blitz until smooth.  Taste, adjust seasoning and serve  dribble

Re: Soup's on!!

I cooked Beetroot soup , a few weeks ago. Nice, but I really worried when it left my system. Betanin, obtained from the roots, is used industrially as red food colorants.
You get the picture.
Other nice soups, my mother cooked me a lamb with pearl barley soup. Shoulder blade bone was used to god efffect along with trimmings. I used the rest for kebabbs.

Re: Soup's on!!

I think my favourite all time soup is leek and potato - lightly pureed, so that there are still a few chunky bits of potato left. I tried a new soup on the weekend though and I think it's a winner. I made French Onion soup, but instead of using beef broth I used chicken broth (for my non beef eating daughter) to make up some of the body missing from Mr. Moo, I substituted in a red wine instead of my usual go to - Chardonnay. It definitely did the trick and both my daughter and I were happy campers.

I am going to start experimenting with Tom Yam, a Thai soup, in the immediate future.

Re: Soup's on!!

Tonight is stephanie's CREAM OF CAULIFLOWER AND LEEK yummy

We are becoming soupe mad (only crazy before) and have found a handy site for soupes also cooked in the slow cooker...i know that very little imagination is needed to fill those soup bowls, the slow cooker has already made us some lovely mushroom and a great velouté of toamatoes...i would also one day try a ministrone.
