Hearty, thick soup that's a perfect something to do with your leftover holiday ham and bones. Use two bones with plenty of meat on them instead of the ham hocks. I make it every time we have two ham bones in the freezer and once I take most of the meat off, the dogs get the bones for a special treat, so they love when I make this too! Found it on the Food Network site, but I've tweaked it a bit.
This recipe is very gourmet and is from Bobby Flay on FoodNetwork. A little work, but well worth it. Mostly vegetables and very hardy, it is even better left over! I use store-bought croutons, either Italian or Garlic/Cheese to top it off and a little Parmesan.
Was going to make a Hoppin' John soup but the pantry was empty of black-eyed peas so made this instead. I was pleased with the results but my "boys" (students) thought it lacked spice and added hot sauce.
I enjoy making and eating this soup. The "three pearls" are the chicken, peas and tomato. Three contrasting colors, textures and flavors. You can use ham instead of the tomato. The original recipe used 1/2 teaspoon of monosodium glutamate and 1-teaspoon chicken fat, to be added with the rice wine. I have never done that and it seems fine, but decide for yourself. This is an elegant starter for a Chinese dinner. Reheats well.
This is a hearty, cold day soup. Have it for lunch or dinner. I love the addition of dried cranberries - it's like christmas dinner in a bowl (well not quite). You may use canned sweet potatoes, place them in the veggie broth bring to a boil and immediately add remaining ingredients-Quick & Easy soup to make This recipe was originally in our local TV Guide in the Chopping Block column
It is also very versatile I have just made it using Veggie broth & Beef broth (yes with the chicken) added 1 tsp of Chili flakes and 1/2 tsp ginger powder - very nice flavor
A quick and easy dinner that's tasty, economical and doesn't leave you with too many dishes to wash! An Asian Style Chicken Noodle Soup. Submitted for "Dining on a Dollar Contest" using contest ingredients - November 2008. Add the red pepper flakes as an option if you like a hotter style soup, or alternately use a small red chilli finely diced and add with the chopped onion.
Back in 1993 my DM and I became lifetime members of WW. She revised the 0 point soup recipe. She won 1st place with it at her Office "Soup Cookoff" one year. I just dug it out because now I need it again. Zaar is not kind to your waist line. I also have revised her revision. It called for a can of Cajun stewed tomatoes which I can no longer locate. I now use 1 tsp Cajun spice but food.com won't accept it. Also changed a few other items to my liking.
With cold weather and Ramadan approaching this soup along with Morocco's national soup Harira will be daily staples here. Morocco is known for wonderful soups IF you use the authentic home cook's recipes!
