Soup Tribute Thread - nectar of the gods

Recommended Posts

Soup. Possibly one of the greatest inventions ever. Filling without the calories of a full meal (mostly). Available to make in almost any flavour ever. Easily digestable by anyone, even if you've had your teeth kicked out or your intestines removed. You can have it as a starter that doesn't stop you eating a full main course, or you can have it as a full meal. It warms you in the winter and refreshes you in the summer. It comes as hot or cold. Let's face it, it's amazing and deserves a tribute thread.

 

I make at least three soups a week and today I will be making this soup.

Btw, anything canned or that comes in a sachet can fuck right off.

Nothing beats my Mum's homemade soup, but if you're skint the Sainsbury's own brand soups (2 tins for a pound) are magic.

Covent Garden do a great book which is a soup for every day of the year, featuring what's seasonal.

 

Made their butternut squash, onion, garlic, ginger, chili and creamed coconut (I used coconut milk) the other day and it's a reet bobby dazzler.

What we call Hochzeitssuppe - "Wedding Soup" - is one of my all time favorite dishes.

A very popular soup over here in Germany. Not my cuppa tea though, the egg squares  in it are a bit off putting, i like my eggs runny and on a slice of toast.

Sounds very nice. I put a bit of curry powder in the one I made above, made two fuck off pans, one with and one without the curry powder. I also roast off all the veg in the oven with red onions in large wedges and the spices before blending it.

It's really a jambalya but I make it as a soup and it's second only to:

Something very close to your soup of the week actually. Lentil Andouille. Perfection, lob in some black beans, corn if you are so inclined.

Cumin and squash

Pea and spring onion

Beetroot and goats cheese

 

All are made very regularly.

 

If you're cooking on a budget the supermarkets do a stew pack for a couple of quid this time of year, add garlic and a bit of stock and blend.

 

It'll give you lunch every day for a week for about 20p a portion.

I make a very nice cheese soup with potato cubes, minced beef, mushrooms and red onions. Bit heavy on the arteries...but fucking lush.

I couldn't believe it was so cheap.

 

Just one word of warning. I recently made the pea soup for the first time. The recipe said 50g of split peas. It seemed a bit odd but I wasnt going to argue. It turned out like grey dish water. I then added another 450g of peas to make it 500g to make another excellent soup.

I ordered it over German Amazon, it is a used book in very good condition. To buy it new would have cost 114€!!!! That is a huge difference between 79 cent and 114€, crazy World we live in.

Anybody else like a fishy soup? I love a cullen Skink & I used to go into a tapas place that made a seafood soup which if they'd charged £20 a bowl I would've happily paid it. Looked a bit like this...

Uk Amazon was showing £0.01 for the paperback version. Paperback cookbooks are generally rubbish, though, because they dont stay open at the page without been clamped down
