This is a beautiful soup that I make for special occassions. It makes the house smell wonderful while it's cooking, too. This is meant to be served as an appetizer, so serve it in small cups. NOT in large bowls, or it will be too much of a good thing. Can be served hot or cold, but I prefer it hot. From Nov 2005 VT
This is a delicous, low fat soup! Sweet and Savory. I usually only puree part of the soup, because I like it chunky. I also make it in BIG Batches, because I cut-up and measure the squash first and then add more of the other ingredients to match. If you do that, you will need to add less water. This soup freezes well!
This Scottish recipe is posted for the World Tour 2005 event. The source is With a Fine Feeling For Food by Janet Murray. This version uses only the broth, and is made more hearty with oatmeal - a good way to stretch the food supply in hard times.
This is a great stew for cold winter nights! Serve with warm whole grain rolls or grilled cheese sandwiches.
Caution: it does make a lot, but freezes well. It can be reheated directly from the freezer in the microwave. Just heat for 2 minutes at a time, stirring between each until it is as hot as you'd like it.
This is the vegetarian version of a soup I recently posted. I made it up the other day and it is real comfort food. Hearty and healthy - it makes a big pot and that's a good thing as you'll want more than one bowl.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. It's from a special edition of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking. They recommend you use 2 cups dried navy beans soaked overnight, but I've altered the recipe and cooking time for canned. I also halved the amount of oil. When I tried this it made a rather soupy stew; if you prefer your stews drier, I suggest cutting back on the broth, and add more if it gets too dry.
Spicy, delicious and easy to make. After days of being sick with a cough and cold -- in the summer, no less! -- I was ready to eat something that I could actually taste. The soup is vegan, and the dumplings are vegetarian but contain dairy and eggs.
