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.
From the Food Network, Rachael says "a stoup is thicker than a soup and thinner than a stew". I must make all my soups as stoups, since it isn't any thicker than other soups I have made. That aside, this is a very tasty soup -- one that I will make often. I cut up all my veggies ahead of time and made the recipe as posted except I didn't use the black olive tapenade because my store doesn't carry it and I stirred the parsley into the stoup while it was simmering. I also let it simmer on the stove for 20-30 minutes because I wasn't ready to serve dinner yet and it was fine. It is excellent and definitely a keeper!
I recently purchased some barley as a way to introduce new grains to my diet. Found lots of good ideas for barley on this site and came up with my own soup. Perfect fall soup with comfort from the barley and chicken with a little heat from the chilies. Since the ingredients here reflect my pantry and tastes, you should feel free to adapt it to your own. I can see using green beans instead of zucchini or thighs instead of breasts.
This is "souper" easy comfort food - the kind of pantry throw-together we all need some days. I add some cooked elbow pasta to mine as I am a carboholic! Adapted from a recipe found in Hometown Cookbook magazine.
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.
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....
Tastes like the Yankee Pot Roast Soup at the Montanas restaurant chain (I'm in Canada) - thick, hearty and fragrant. I typically add more beef than the recipe calls for as I usually cut up a small roast. Tastes even better reheated. I freeze it in individual size containers to microwave for lunch at work. (Bring extra - your colleagues will want to try it!)
This is my mum's recipe, which I made just recently. My son's girlfriend wanted the recipe, so I figure this is the easiest way to give it to her! If you like hearty old-fashioned soup, this is a good stick-to-your-ribs one! Cook time includes making the stock, then next day, the soup, but not the sitting overnight!
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.
I adopted this recipe when Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. After recently having a chance to try it, I have to say that this is a very flavorful and hearty soup. I like that it is full of veggies and that the pork is a lean source of protein. We will be making this again and serving it with crusty bread and good wine.
