This is a much played with recipe. I like a nice hearty, chunky soup. Lucky me, that I hadn't posted this one yet when the RSC #9 ingredients list was revealed. Because this already had 5 ingredients from it! My work was done for entry #1. This became my most popular recipe in the contest. Spot 6 when sorted by rating. Hope you try it and love it too! **Several reviewers have used broth in place of the water which will give you a more intense flavor...The reason I didn't have it in the ingredients is because most onion soup mixes have beef bouillon in them.**
I made this recipe myself when I was 13. I was on here trying to find a recipe for potato soup because I liked my mom's so much. When I was looking, I couldn't find a simple recipe for it that looked good, so I decided to make my own. Now, my soup tastes even better than my mom's and I always make it for family.
This was rated by DH as a Killer recipe. It is make from leftover Recipe #210232. It's a great dish to prepare on busy week nights, because you start with prepared potatoes. This is from one of my old weight watcher cookbooks called "Just like Home" It has 6 points per 1 1/4 cups.
This soup was a lunch time staple for me while I was on Weight Watchers. I am a little picky with my veggies but this is the version I make for myself. Feel free to add any of your favorite free veggies.
A hot soup for those chilly nights. A loaf of crusty bread to dunk in your bowl - oh yeah! This is winter comfort food at this house - especially after a day at the ski hill. Sometimes I will throw some barley in for a change. Try it - I think you'll like it.
The onions, carrots, celery, potatoes and garlic are sauteed first to enliven the sugars in them. This comfort soup gets a wonderful smokey flavor from your choice of ham bone or shank or smoked turkey wings. It's swirled with sherry. Topped with bacon bits and croutons.
This is a refinement of a recipe I created when my boyfriend was sick, and I wanted to make chicken noodle soup from what we had on hand. For the authentic poor college student version - use 1 can of Swanson's chicken broth + 1 cup water, and a brick of ramen noodles. I get nostalgic just thinking about it.
But I like this version better.
As a New Englander I can tell you this is the best Clam Chowder around! It's from The Vanilla Bean Cafe in Pomfret, Connecticut.
This is the original recipe.
In addition to the onion & celery I sometimes like to add 1/2 cup shredded carrots.
