    Default 2 soup recepiees needed. One with meat ot fish. Another without. Goodtasting, fast to make, cheap. Good to eat with freshly baked bread.

    I want to learn how to cook a soup.
    This is what I have.
    Mexican supermarket close to me with abundance of every possible
    vegetables and meats. And fish.
    Cheap. Fresh. I also bake at home good fresh bread every 3-4 days. So,
    this is what soup will be eaten with.


    I want a soup that is easy fat to cook. Do not want million of
    ingredients. Want it to be tasting good for 3-4 days.
    Important thing is that it should be simple to make, but taste good.

    One soup for summer. For now. So it is a light soup, but still it
    should deliver enough nutrition , so that eaten with a good piece of
    rich dark bread, you would not need a second meaty dish.
    If it needs fat, it is OK, I am not in a dieting. And move enough to
    be worried about dieting.
    If needs salt, it is also, OK. So, the point I am making is that ,
    please, do not try to select from the list for low cholesterol,
    etc,etc......
    It is probably more close to the way your grandma was cooking.

    Idea is, that I cook it for 3-4 days. And take some of it to work. And
    the rest it at home with my wife.
    If kids would be there it would be easier, we would complete it
    faster. But they are not. So, some of this soup will be eaten with co-
    workers that are not afraid to taste. So when they try, they should
    like it. So, they will ask for more. So, that it will give me
    motivation to keep going.

    Now, I do know basics of cooking. And do cook. It is just that soup I
    make now, is so simple, it is nutrisious also.
    Everything is there. But it does not taste good enough to want a
    second bowl. At least if you are not very hungry.

    Thanks a lot.

    Chicken soup! Chicken stock, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, chicken, salt,
    pepper, and maybe noodles or rice. It doesn't get much easier than that.

    Soup can be fancy but can also be as simple as using up what there is.
    Having read why you don't care for the soups you make, I suggest trying
    these things:

    1 Start with a sofritto of minced onion, carrot and celery which you will
    fry in olive oil or meat fat.

    2. Brown any red meat you plan to use in the soup before adding it-- that
    can be fried or roasted, and make sure you don't lose any of the fond or
    what's stuck on. Deglaze with some wine of any type.

    3. Use a wide variety of firm vegetables with the meat and sofritto. Or use
    just one, like turnips, amd make a distinctively beef-turnip soup. Add
    water and cook slowly for a long time. Go easy on the salt at first,
    because if you need to reduce it, or boil it down to increase flavor, you
    don't want it to be oversalted. Whole peppercorns do very well in flavoring
    broth. Sometimes tomatoes, tinned or fresh-peeled are good in meat soup.
    Not every time.

    4. Use any starches toward the end of cooking, like potatoes, rice. I
    prefer not to leave noodles in because they go pasty, but add them fresh
    when reheating.

    5. Capitalize on the fresh herbs out there now and throw two or three
    handfulls of 2 of them into the broth near the end. I would avoid cilantro,
    mint, other very strong ones, but oregano, thyme, basil, tarragon are all
    great as well as others.

    Reduce the broth until it is as flavored as you like. THEN correct for salt
    and possibly pepper, although pepper shouldn't be in every time.

    Same ideas apply to chicken soups, but with a lighter hand on the numbers
    and types of thing added. Chicken loves more onion, though. Very reduced
    chicken broth can be fabulous with cream added and served over rice.

    I haven't mentioned garlic because I think people oiften go overboarf and
    everything ends up tasting like garlic soup. If you want to try it, use one
    whole clove and see if it's a plus. I think most blah soups aren't reduced
    enough because they've been salted too early, too few herbs are used and
    cooks aren't adventurous enough about vegetable choices.

    Jill's Roasted Butternut soup

    Soups/Chowders/Stews, tested

    4 pounds butternut squash -- (2 large)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 cups chicken stock; -- or broth
    2 cups water; - (I use less)
    1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
    2 teaspoons salt; -- (I omit)
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon dried tarragon
    sour cream -- for garnish; (I omit)

    Split the squashes down the middle lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and
    pulp with a spoon. Brush a baking sheet with olive oil. Place the
    squashes, cut side down on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 1
    hour
    or until tender. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon and place into a large
    mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, stir together water and stock.
    Puree squash in a blender or food processor (in batches) adding the
    liquid as needed until you have a smooth puree. Pour pureed squash into
    a deep pot and bring to a low boil. Season with salt, pepper, onion
    powder and tarragon. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook over very low heat
    about 1 hour, stirring every so often (say every 15 minutes). Garnish
    each bowl with a small dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream if desired.

    Serves 8-10. This soup can be frozen.

    27 net carbs per large serving roughly.

    I adore pinto bean soup... the meatless type. It's just beans,
    onions, tomato, garlic and salt to taste at the end (salt brings out a
    meaty flavor from the beans). There are a gazillion recipe variations
    on the net for you to look at. I like to add lots of cilantro at the
    end of cooking - but you may not like cilantro. Garnish with sour
    cream, salsa and a sprinkling of chopped cilantro. Serve. I prefer
    tortillas with this, but wouldn't turn down home made bread.

    For a quick and light soup, gently poach chicken breasts in water with
    slices of fresh ginger and scallion. Take out the ginger and
    chicken... shred the chicken and return to the broth (salt to taste).
    You can make the soup heartier by adding some leftover rice to it, now
    you have chicken and rice soup!

    Vadalia Onion Chowder

    Soups/Chowders/Stews

    4 slices bacon -chopped bite sized; -not crumbled
    2 tbsp olive oil; or use bacon fat
    4 vadialia onions; sliced
    2-3 cups mashed potatoes (leftovers); I used 3
    4 cloves garlic; minced
    2 boxes chicken stock (approx 30 oz)
    2 cups corn kernels (I used 2 cans)
    2 bay leaf; (optional)
    1/4 tsp dried thyme
    fresh ground black pepper; LOTS
    salt to taste
    sour cream; see note*

    Fry the bacon crisp. drain well the bacon and reserve. (Used later.)
    Heat oil in large pot. low medium to med heat.
    Make the onions bite sized, add to pot, cook till tender, about 10 min.
    Mince the garlic, add to pot, cook 1 minute or so more.
    Add broth, potatoes, corn, bay leaves, thyme. Bring the soup to a boil.
    Remove the pot from the heat. Remove the bay leaves. Season with
    pepper.
    Add sour cream.
    *Note add the sour cream just before serving by the tablespoon per bowl.
    This freezes better without the sour cream.
    Serve in soup bowls, and sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.
    this recipe needs more garlic than called for.
    Note: I just stirred the crumbled bacon in with the whole batch.
    Don't be shy with the garlic.
    I used some turkey Stock in with this (excellent.)
    Used 5 or 6 sweet onions
    6-7 potatoes served as mashed.
    I Didn't have vidalia onions so i used locally grown sweet onions
    instead.
    I added a grated carrot for colour.
    I think some brocolli florets might be nice as well
