Soups. Do You Make Any?

Ask a Question

Gonna do a roast chicken dinner (pigs in blankets included) for the wife tomorrow and I'm thinking about doing a broccoli and stilton soup as a starter.

Do you lot make any soups? Any tips for future soups would be appreciated.

I'm convinced you're a chef! My attempt at broccoli & stilton was mush. Curried parsnip, mushroom (make sure to use stalks and skin, most flavour), lentil have all turned out well.

lilyflower I've heard a lot curried parsnip soup, but I don't really like them.

But then again, some people say that the flavour of parsnip doesn't come through that much.

I think that I'd find it a bit sweet for my taste.

TheChimp Parsnips are best roast. Soup - Carrot and Coriander, Tomato, Leek and Spud, Celery, there are some nice ones here https://www.olivemagazine.com/recipes/family/best-easy-soup-recipes/

The easiest soup that we love is roasted butternut squash. Cut into chunks including the skin drizzle a little olive oil and roast on a low heat till soft. Sorry forgot to say add an onion too. Once soft blitz with water and stock cube and sprinkle chilli powder or curry powder.

2 Garlic clove whole

1 Ginger or half up to you

mix Vegetables frozen its up to you how much you want to put I put half of cup

1 Tomato - Medium - Chopped

1 Bay leaves

3-4 Cloves

1 tsp black pepper

1 or half inch Cinnamon stick

1 tsp Salt adjust to taste

Add the dry spices and cook for 2 more minutes.

Now add the chicken piece and brown them till evenly colored.

Now add salt and 6 cups of water.

Let it boil over high heat. Once it starts boiling lower the heat and let the liquid simmer for 50 mins with the lid on. You should have about 5 cups of soup. Once done take it off the stove and let it rest for 20 mins. Use a strainer to strain the liquid in to a serving bowl and take out the chicken and shred throw them away. heat it before serving and Serve it with a squeeze of Lemon Juice any spelling mistake please forgive me i am so tierd been busy take care and enjoy the soup i hope your wife will like this recipe πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ»

Another easy soup recipe, peel and chop several sweet potatoes and a few carrots, boil then drain, blitz with a can of coconut milk and a spoon full of mild curry powder. Enjoy. Add a bit of water if it’s too thick for you.

Hi thechimp I make soup ever other day. And freeze it. After you had your chicken dinner put the bones in a pan cut up half a carrot and half onion. Full with enough water to cover the bones and cook on a low heat for one hour. When its done drain the stock in to a bowl and let it cool now you have a stock for to make your soup. And you can freeze it. This is what I do. It's great to make a home made soup much better then a tin. Which is full of sugar and salt and the stock makes a lovely leek and potatoe soup. Or a chunky veg soup. Or any other home made soup

Injoy your meal on Sunday. Image

i make a hearty homemade soup, with carrots, potatoes, chickpeas, butternut squash, chicken stock and onion (sometimes add tomato too) which I blend and then add chunks of chicken. My 16 year old junk food loving step son loves my soup and chooses it over takeaway!!

my mum told me with soup to always stick to one colour palette - don’t mix green / orange / red ingredients..

Soup!! It’s summer man, lol. Gazpacho is delicious if you can get over the fact it looks like vom. Come Autumn though and I’m making soup weekly. Butternut squash and bacon is lush but a great broccoli and Stilton does hit the spot
