Love, love, love this recipe! It's done in less than 20 minutes and is so flavorful and creamy. Perfect with a salad and garlic bread or a grilled cheese! I have made my own alterations/additions to this recipe. Here's a tip on the sage: sometimes I'll use dried sage instead of the fresh sage leaf and in that case I start with about a teaspoon and add more to taste if need be. Also, I use my immersion blender and puree the soup right in the pot rather than using a regular blender...Giada just uses a regular blender, either way works fine! Enjoy!
I guarantee you'll love this chili!! It is soooo easy to make. Sounds a little odd, but even my kids love it. Full bodied and not too spicy. I've always made chili from scratch, but we liked this one so well, I wrote it down.
Customizable, yet simple. Everyone I've served this to has loved it; it's easy, unique, and cheap company fare. My version is low-fat and free of wheat and gluten. I cannot tolerate spicy food at all, so if you want it hot, add more cumin and some chili powder. If desired, add sauteed, chopped onions or bell peppers. You can grate any desired cheese on top if you want.
I've seen several Tuscan Soup recipes out there, so here's mine. I have a penchant for spicy Italian, but please feel free to sub milder ingredients, if that's your thing. I don't know why it would be, but if that floats your boat... Serve with some warm crusty bread and enjoy!
This is very close to the Olive Garden soup. There's another recipe on the web, which was the basis of this recipe, however, I have changed it to use less cream. Still tastes good! I did end up using a little cornstarch to thicken. I guess you could sub heavy cream for the half-and-half to make it a little thicker without using cornstarch. The gnocchi is usually in the spaghetti section of the grocery store.
This broccoli cheese soup is the best that I have ever tasted! I had to beg for over a year to get the recipe. It is not a smooth soup, but more chunky and hearty, thus the chowder title. This is a great recipe for dinner, brunch or even a dinner party.
I rounded up some recipes today to use my various truffle oils with. I haven't tried this one yet. Bacon gives this soup added oomph and truffle oil makes it special. Can be made 1 day ahead. Cool slightly; cover and chill. Rewarm before continuing.
one of Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio's sandwich'es from his Wichcraft restaurant. Add lettuce, spinach or anything else you like but its great plain. caramelizing the onions takes time but worth it. (you can also do a double batch and freeze half for another time)
