This soup is creamy as well as hearty and filling; easy to prepare and budget-friendly. The corn adds a tiny bit of sweetness to the taste. For variety, you could probably add some peas and/or carrots; shredded cheddar for topping upon serving. Add some nice warm bread to accompany the meal. This recipe is courtesy of Taste of Home Magazine, a 2nd place winner in a soup contest.
I checked through Recipezaar and couldn't find any like this one that I threw together for lunch today. The secret is the roasted garlic (there are many recipes for roasting garlic here on Recipezaar I used Mean Chefs') - I just did 15 heads and froze them and they are wonderful. The potatoes I used are wee little runts from the garden only about 1/2" across but any potato will do peeled & diced.
This is one of my favourite recipes for leftover roast beef - its delicious on a cold winter night!!If you don't have leftover beef, substitute with 1 lb of extra-lean ground beef, to be cooked with the onions. "Demi glace" or "au jus" can be found with the prepackaged gravies & sauces in the supermarket - you just won't get the same great flavour if you omit it!!
Simple home-style cooking is always the best and every culture loves stew - this version is a favourite in my family! Sometimes, I'll add parsnips or turnips - at other times, I'll omit the potatoes & serve over broad noodles - and occasionally, I top it with dumplings!!
This recipe was given to me by my friend. These instructions are exactly how she gave them to me. I hope it is not to confusing. This is a very good recipe for chicken stew or pot pie filling. It has become a favorite at our house.
My grandmother always made this borscht in the fall and winter. She never made anything by recipe so this is my version. The kids and neighbors love it and always ask when I'm going to make it again. Or tell me I should have made a bigger pot.
I adapted this recipe from one for lentil soup, and called it Turkish because of the Urfa Pepper I used in it, which I found in my local Turkish grocery store. You could also use chilli flakes. If you want to use lentils instead of the peas, you can easily do so and your cooking time will be shorter. You also won't need quite as much water as you do for the peas.
