My dad used to make this when he was in the Spanish Military. They ate this morning, noon and night. I was brought up on it and missed it when I left home. Now I cook it for my family and they love it. This stew is called 'Patatas Guisadas' but we renamed it 'Army Soup'.
This cholesterol-free tasty dish is virtually fat free and is prepared with only 1 tbsp. of oil. You can eat the whole pot. I have a trick after reading the reviews about the pasta soaking up the liquid. Cook the pasta seperate and drain put in a bowl next to the soup for serving. Put 2 or three good size spoonfuls in bottom of bowl then ladle the soup over it. Thats how i do it with pasta and rice soups.
Number of servings is approximate! This is my family's favorite soup. The recipe makes ALOT of soup...so I like to prepare and freeze it for busy nights when I don't really have alot of time to cook. If I'm making this to freeze, I omit the potatoes and add them later. My family loves this with thick slices of plain or cracklin cornbread! Enjoy!
This is so tasty, and healthy too! We love black beans. Prep time does not include soaking and cooking the beans, but does include cooking the chicken. You can, of course, substitute canned beans, just drain them. The soup can also be frozen in a sturdy plastic container, or a ziploc bag. To serve, defrost and heat in microwave or on stovetop.
A German dinner party soup. Badische Schneckensuppe was the house specialty of the Zum Ritter in in Durbach. If you don't like escargot, use extra mushrooms instead. My dinner guests couldn't tell the difference between the minced escargot and the minced mushroom and there was not a drop of soup left over. I used extra Pernod because I did not have aniseed.
This dish is named for the traditional pot it is cooked in. This version contains not only 2 kinds of fish, but shrimp, mussels, and clams as well. Traditionally, it is a thick stewed chock full of seafood. We prefer it more like a soup, hence the optional vegetable broth.
