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.
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.
My best friend made this the other day and I just had to have the recipe. It's filling and soooo good! The recipe can easily be halved. This recipe comes from a German cookbook and a German packet of leek soup is enough for 3 cups of water. As far as I can tell from looking on the internet that's the same for Knorr leek soup in the US. If I am wrong please use enough of the soup mix to make 9 cups. If you add the optional ingredients you might want to reduce the amount of whole kernel corn, otherwise the soup becomes really thick. Where I live you can buy cans of whole kernel corn that have some kidney beans added, those work really well. Can easily be prepared ahead and reheated.
An uncomplicated, well-seasoned Cajun-style soup. This makes a nice, satisfying weeknight supper, and can be made a little more substantial by adding some cooked rice. Remember to remove the bay leaf before serving!
Really chilly day yesterday got me thinking about soup, so I threw this together when I got home from work. The steak seasoning is imperative to the taste. If you can't find it in your area there are several good recipes for a substitute on 'Zaar. Reviews have stated "too much noodles" so I have edited to use only 4 ounces.
I combined parts of several different recipes and came up with this soup that I've been making for years. As much as I hate cold weather, I'm always kind of happy to see it arrive just so I can fix this soup for dinner. I usually serve it with crusty sourdough rolls for a wonderfully satisfying comfort meal.
I made this soup up the other day and it is real comfort food. Hearty and healthy (well, if you don't count the bacon!) - it makes a big pot and that's a good thing as you'll want more than one bowl. You can make this soup vegetarian by omitting the bacon, but do add a couple of tablespoonfuls of olive oil to saute the onions in.
