Having recently discovered an allergy to tomatoes sent my Italian world into a tailspin. How would I ever survive?? Here is a wonderful, nourishing, comfort-food soup that I put together that eased my sense of deprivation. The amounts are very flexible, plus I've given directions on how to add tomatoes if you "must".
I got this recipe from a website for which I've long since lost the address. I wish I could credit the author, because this is truly an amazing soup! I'd recommend not skipping the avocados--they are what puts it over the top, in my opinion.
This recipe is from a dear friend, and it has become one of my weekly comfort meals in the winter. It is absolutely delicious, and you can tweak it all you like. It is very fast to put together and almost completely fat-free. I love this soup.
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 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!!
Soups are my very favorite thing to cook! Many great soup recipes have been collected over the 57 years I've been cooking.....and this is one of the best. It is easy and the catsup gives it a unique taste that everyone, kids especially, seem to really like. The recipe came from a daughter, who is a great cook.....Sarahloves2cook.
The best thing about this soup, apart from the delicious taste, is that it's so easy and quick to make. Please serve it with the Cilantro Cream - it's like the icing on the cake!
You can make this soup for a vegetarian, just leave out the bacon and use vegetable stock - this is how I make it for my husband and it's still delicious.
This recipe has been adapted from a leaflet I found in a supermarket, promoting Sonoma dried tomato halves.
This recipe has been lost for years and I have just found it, my Dad was the cook in the family growing up and my sister and I always loved this simple and delicious stew. Very kid friendly and flexible. Would be great for OAMC( you could use frozen meatballs)and could be adapted to a crockpot, would double or triple easily. Enjoy
