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 soup is to die for! My friend Jan makes it for potlucks and I can never get enough. It is the best, yummiest, soup around. Good for those cold winter days and those times when you need comfort food. I don't even want to think about the calories....
I make this thick comforting soup often for my family during the cold winter months. It is so fast and easy to fix and it is rather low in fat and calories. This makes 4 very large servings. To reduce sodium, you may use low sodium green beans if you prefer. I adapted this recipe from "Fast, Cheap and Easy," by JoAnna Lund. Condensed cream of tomato soup and condensed regular tomato soup are interchangeable in this recipe; no alterations necessary.The important part is that it is indeed a condensed version of tomato soup, as opposed to ready to serve.
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.
Everyone knows by now how much I hate Edith Gump but love her cooking. I only pretend to like her and take her phone calls so she will share her delicious recipes. This onion soup is ambrosia in a bowl.
This soup is really good and easy. If you have more time, you can use fresh vegetables instead of canned, but I like it either way. My family loves this on a cold winter's day. I believe this recipe is from Taste of Home magazine.
I created this recipe by taking ingredients from other split pea soup recipes and added a few of my own. My husband loves it, and my dad requests that I make him a batch for his birthday present. This soup also freezes well.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Identifying a Canadian recipe, for an American, was difficult. Good thing I found at least one good one, on the internet. St. Ives makes a wonderful vegetarian substitute for Canadian Bacon. Lower in fat than the original (which I understand is still pretty low in fat). This is a diabetic recipe, from Taste of Home's Light and Tasty. Exchanges: 1 starch, 1 lean meat, 1 vegetable. I have not tried this yet, but I will. Butter granules are new to me; I might as well experiment.
This isn't MY dad's chicken soup recipe, it's just what it was called. I think this originally came from Bon Appetit. I have always made it with pasta instead of rice. The thyme in this is what makes it tasty. Prep time does not include cooking the chicken.
This creamy, chunky, cheesy, smoky, spicy soup will warm up anyone on a cold night! Total Comfort food! "Will soothe any soul"!
I used roasted garlic but fresh will be great too. Take note I used no salt because I found the ham did it job. You're welcome to season as you wish.
