Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006 from An Exaltation Of Soups....Reputedly a French elixir for convalescents and birthing mothers — and a godsend for those with hangovers — this delicate soup is almost unexplainably comforting. It's very soft, and the fragrances of the herbed broth and fruity olive oil help the tender bread sop and cheese slip right down to comfort a tight stomach.
This recipe has been a huge hit with everyone who has ever tried it. We make it almost weekly, and the leftovers are eaten immediately. It is also very healthy! It is a little spicy, so if you don't have too much of a tolerance for spicy foods, you may choose to leave out the seeds of the jalapeño. If you love spicy, like we do, extra cayenne pepper adds even more zing. Enjoy!
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE TITLE! Your kids, hubby, wifey, and everyone will eat it. I have made triple batches and could not keep it in the house. It's very smooth, and easily eaten by anyone with or without teeth. :) Fights have started over the leftovers.
This is so tasty, and healthy too! We love black beans. Prep time does not include soaking and cooking the beans, but does include cooking the chicken. You can, of course, substitute canned beans, just drain them. The soup can also be frozen in a sturdy plastic container, or a ziploc bag. To serve, defrost and heat in microwave or on stovetop.
This is a modified recipe, originally called Farmhouse Cheddar Soup, which I clipped out years ago. I make it often and freeze in individual servings to reheat. You can reserve 1 1/2 c of the cauliflowerets to saute in some butter and add after the soup has been pureed. I usually just puree it all in the soup pot with a hand blender.
This could be THE best way to use up leftover turkey. Comfort food at its best - what could be better on a cold January day than a steaming bowl of creamy, delicious soup!! This recipe comes from the 2005 Kraft Kitchens Calendar.
This soup was fantastic. Very decadent tasting and definitely a meal for two people. Wonderful soup with crusty bread for a rainy afternoon. We found this recipe in a Dutch magazine called Aller Hande (AllerHande 12 2004).
My spin on Outback's Creamy Onion Walkabout soup...Please follow steps
for the "white sauce" first...This tastes just like the
restaurant!***The secret is the bay leaves...I found them in my soup @ Outback & knew
that was the missing ingredient! This is the only recipe out there that
includes the bay leaves!!!! This soup is my ALL TIME FAV!! (The WHITE SAUCE ingredients are the first 3 listed items on top) ENJOY!!!
This is an awesome, filling soup from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking magazine a few years back. You can dress it up for company or serve it simple any time. The odd combination of ingredients is what caught my eye the first time. I've modified the original recipe to thin the soup a little and stretch it out more. Freezes well.
Crock pot E-Z; creamy, chunky fully-bodied chowder using cubed leftover ham and Half and Half(substitute, if you choose) to tempt your taste buds. Even better next day or can be frozen in muffins cups zipped tightly into large plastic bag for individual use later. Base recipe from internet with my upgrades. I'm trying it over rice as an encore; whaddya think?
From a cookbook called "Best Loved Slow Cooker Recipes," this soup tastes very similar to French onion soup, but the cheese is mixed right in. I've had a little trouble in the past with the cheese and milk curdling, so I turn my slow cooker off and let the soup cool a little before adding. *Update Sept 22/06: Try adding a pound of smoked sausage and 2 diced potatoes for a heartier version.
