Roasting the garlic mellows and sweetens the garlic without overpowering the soup. This is a simple 4 ingredient recipe. Spice it up if you like but this simple recipe has great qualities. Use a floury potato for it to give a velvety texture. Good served HOT with melted cheddar or gruyere cheese on french bread
I created this soup on a chilly spring evening. It's a light but satisfying vegetarian soup flavored with cumin, oregano, pasilla chile and lime, served with Chihuahua cheese (or another Mexican queso fresco - fresh white cheese). Plus, it's topped with adictive little crispy-fried lime-chili tortilla strips!
When I first read the words "Cheeseburger Soup" on the menu of our local deli - my thought was YUCK! This was the special every Friday! Well one Friday I decided to broaden my taste buds and give it a try! It was sooooo good! Being the cook that I am, I just knew I could make this on my own. So here is my version and If I do say so myself - "it's better than the deli's" but shhhh....don't tell them!!!!!
Mushrooms and vermouth - who knew they'd taste so good together? Very good, broth-based soup where the mushroom flavor really shines, since there's no cream or milk. It's also vegetarian but could be made vegan (substitute olive oil for butter and vegetable broth for chicken broth). We usually have this all year round, but like it especially to start a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Especially nice since you can make it in advance! Adapted from "Colorado Cache".
Lets talk comfort food! I'd even make this for Valentines day If you and your Loved One loves garlic you can't go wrong! Roasting the garlic make it so smooth and yummy. Roast an extra bulb of garlic to serve with a crisp French bread. Roasting garlic mellows and sweetens the garlic.
This was my favourite soup from the Bell Canada cafeteria; many years later, I found the recipe in a Soup & Starter cookbook! Its a good way to use up leftover roast beef (or lamb). If I don't have dripping on hand, I broil some bacon, use the bacon fat & eat the bacon!!
This one doesn't use roasted capsicums, but it is delicious. I make it every year and freeze it. I have made it with red, yellow and orange capsicums, they all have a slightly different taste. All good.
