This is my favorite recipe for potato soup. It's a copycat of the one they use to serve at the St. Louis Bread Company (Panera). The recipe originally called for shredding your potatoes, but I never could get them to cook that way. I know they should cook faster, but I never could get it to work.
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com I got this copycat recipe off of Top Secret Recipes site.I love Friday's Black Bean Soup because of its spiciness and I was so happy to find this! This is so easy to prepare! You can make this soup on the stovetop or in the slow cooker.I brought this soup to a boil on the stove and then put it in the slow cooker and let it simmer on low for 2-3 hours. If you like black bean soup, you're gonna love this!
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.
Wow this is good! Tastes just like buffalo chicken/hot wings in a creamy and filling soup! Fast and simple too! I am not usually a fan of anything with canned cream soups but when I tried this I just had to have the recipe. There are lots of recipes here on Zaar for substitutes for canned cream soup that could be used with great results. I have listed that this makes a gallon, actually it makes just shy of a gallon of soup. From TOH with tweaks from Mama.
Everyone knows by now how much I hate Edith Gump but love her cooking. I only pretend to like her and take her phone calls so she will share her delicious recipes. This onion soup is ambrosia in a bowl.
I got this recipe off this group i joined and I've been dying to try it out. I haven't been to olive garden in over a year, so this is as close as i can get. Honestly, I could barely tell the difference, and it was my favorite part of eating there. The soup. This is SO good, and excellent with breadsticks! I garnish it with shredded parmesan cheese and fresh ground pepper. Jan 2011- ETA I just wanted to thank everyone for the great reviews...this is still a staple in our house, glad to see so many enjoying it!!! Thanks again!!
I just tried this recipe as a new meal tonight and it will definately be a keeper.
I got it out of a " Taste of Home Quick Cooking" book.
Was easy to make and big on taste!
I tweeked it just a bit but the end results are still the same.
As with most chowders, this is much better served the second day. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, reheat and serve! Sometimes I will add some crushed red pepper when I saute the onion. The Maine shrimp can be substituted with other small shrimp.
