Very good! Easy to make.

Recipe #33752

I love this recipe, friends crave it, some have me over once a month just to cook this ( :P ) and my husband who doesn't eat soup and wouldn't even try lentils ate it up in seconds! I do love this, as its great tasting and well worth the effort! This is seriously something you must try! Its something I have perfected over the years, so my measurement are guesstimates but they are pretty spot on! This is one of those recipes that takes an afternoon to cook and tastes even better the next day, but this makes a lot of soup and it freezes so well its worth it! This is a thick soup so could be served as a meal!If you absolutely need to add meat, I cook a generous amount of thinly sliced prosciutto and serve on top of soup under the shredded Parmesan.

Recipe #99564

This is a modified recipe, originally called Farmhouse Cheddar Soup, which I clipped out years ago. I make it often and freeze in individual servings to reheat. You can reserve 1 1/2 c of the cauliflowerets to saute in some butter and add after the soup has been pureed. I usually just puree it all in the soup pot with a hand blender.

I call this "rescued", because so many people throw away the turkey carcass after a big meal. Don't! Rescue it! Making stock is not hard or complicated. You'll be rewarded with delicious soup, and an amazing aroma will fill your home as you make the stock. And you don't even have to make soup right away -- just freeze the stock!

The recipe calls for one cup of cream, but the soup tastes equally delicious without it.

This is a fabulous recipe, especially when made with my Rescued Turkey Stock (#24576). It also freezes very well.

Recipe #24638

The original recipe comes from one of my favorite Italian cookbooks. Adapted to my own tastes and availability of ingredients, this comforting stew packs lots of flavor and can easily be thrown together for a mid-week meal. I usually serve mine with a nice green salad on the side.

This is a great recipe from a coworker, who got it from a Health Canada publication like 20 years ago. Kids like it, and if there are leftovers (rarely!) simmer it down and add a little butter and you have a great, healthy pasta sauce.

Recipe #63102

This is the stock used in a recipe I have just posted for Cashew and Leek Soup. It has been adapted from a book which I found today and just HAD TO BUY - 'Green: modern vegetarian recipes' by Australian cook Flip Shelton. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but all the recipes in the book sound wonderfully healthy; and this recipe is really quite different from the other vegetable stock recipes already posted. If you are wanting to make your own vegetable stock, you may want to combine the ideas here with another recipe. It's just that it could take a while to gather together the ingredients! As Flip says "It's so easy to make your own stock - plus it's a great way to use up things like vegetable peel (other than potato), carrot tops and bottoms, onion skins and the skinny inner stalks of celery. Start by saving well-washed vegetable peel in a plastic bag in the freezer. Keep adding to the bag until you have enough" to make this recipe. She doesn't mention making this in a crockpot, but this is where I'll be making it once I've got into the habit of saving the required ingredients!

Recipe #52207

I made this for my in-laws when they were visiting over the Christmas holidays. It is a very hearty soup.

Recipe #109617

This recipe is our favorite from The Williamsburg Cookbook. We had to buy the cookbook after having this at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. It is quite tasty served hot with toasted breadsticks (see recipe titled "Colonial Soup-Servers") This soup can be served hot or cold. It is even good re-heated.

Recipe #46837

Made this up tonight. I compared some recipes and then used what I had. Turned out very tasty! Bet it would be good vegetarian too. Great served with herbed croutons and shredded Parmesan cheese!

Full of flavour!

Recipe #13817

If you've never cooked with fennel, try it! Its flavour really is unique. This is a deliciously flavoursome soup blending herbs and spices with fennel and leeks. Fennel has long been a central ingredient in many Asian (it’s a main component in the Chinese five spice powder), Middle Eastern and European dishes. In the Middle Ages, its popularity spread northward from the Mediterranean area, where it still features in many pasta dishes. This soup is suitable both for day-to-day meals and for dinner parties. To keep it strictly vegetarian, make it with a vegetable stock. For the best results, use a really good stock, preferably home-made. This soup is best made in a large, deep (preferably non-stick) sauté pan with a lid. Next time I make it, I’m going to substitute a cup of wine for one of the cups of stock, adding it during the 15 minutes while the soup is simmering.

Recipe #120393

This spicy Mexican soup recipe came from a Los Angeles area newspaper some 30 years ago.

Recipe #169881

When we visited Williamsburg VA, we went to all the inns and taverns in the historic district. Then we bought a cookbook and made a new Thanksgiving tradition centered around many of the historic recipes. This is our Thanksgiving soup.
