I love lentil soup Soak 2 to 3 cups of brown lentils in 2 quarts of water for three hours. Cook lentils at a simmer. As they cook, add: 3 to 4 large red potatoes, peeled and chopped finely 4 to 6 carrots, peeled and chopped finely 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped finely Simmer all for 1 hour or until lentils and vegetables are soft Towards the end, add a bunch of Swiss chard, chopped lengthwise and a can of tomatoes/tomato sauce. Flavor soup broth with powdered vegetable seasoning, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Serve when chard has cooked down and flavor is correct. For a spicy flavor, add curry powder to taste.

This is one of my favorite soups. My mom used to make it for us all the time when we were going up. Now I make it for myself, especially when I have a cold :-) Stracciatelli 4 cups chicken broth 2 eggs ¼ cup finely grated bread crumbs 1/3 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1 sprig finely chopped parsley In a small combine 2 cups of chicken broth, the eggs, bread crumbs, cheese, lemon rind and parsley. Place the remainder of the chicken stock in a medium size saucepan and bring to a boil. Slowly add the egg mixture to the boiling chicken stock, stirring constantly. I hope you like it!

My favorite soup is the Crab and Corn soup - but I really dont know how to cook it myself. My mother would cook it for us if we request her to. I think there is a recipe of the Corn and Crab soup in the site: www.recipeland.com - this is the site where we get many of our recipes. Happy posting!

I am not a good cook at all but I saw a chef on TV do a nice soup just the other day and seeing as the cold weather is coming I just felt like making some soup so I tried the soup he made, he used various vegetables and barley but he also finely chopped up some brussell sprouts which normally I hate but I know are very good for you and I added some curry to it, and I must admit it was the nicest soup I have ever cooked it was very nice....

Unfortunately I do not have the recipe with me, but I am sure you would be able to find a good recipe, if you searched in allrecipes etc. My favorite soup of all time is peach soup. I know it sounds funny, but my aunt who is a chef made this for my wedding, and I am telling you everyone loved it, and she has received so many recipe request since then. I have made it myself a few times and it is so easy to make. I know the ingredients include can peaches, cream, paprika, curry and shrimp either mixed in or as a topping.

I don't make a lot of soups but I do one that is a family favourite and is so easy: Chicken (or crab) and sweet corn soup. BOil about four cups of chicken flavoured stock and add a can of creamed corn to it. Add diced chicken or crab (cooked) and some chopped shallots. Simmer for five minutes then stir in two beaten eggs. Thats it... I think it is a chinese soup. Very nice.

Seven Vegetable Soup - This soup has spinach, onion, celery,carrot,cabbage, tomatoes, and potatoes.It’s the creamed spinach that gives this soup a light and creamy base.
This past winter I tried this recipe for my family. They all loved it.It’s the creamed spinach that gives this soup a light and creamy base. Seven Vegetable Soup 2 (14-ounce) cans vegetable or chicken broth 2 cups shredded cabbage 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes 1 (15-ounce) can extra-thick and zesty seasoned tomato sauce 6 medium (2 cups) new red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes 2 medium (2 cups) carrots, sliced 1/4-inch thick 1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, chopped 2 ribs (1 cup) celery, chopped 2 bay leaves 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 (10-ounce) package frozen creamed spinach, thawed 4 ounces (1 cup) LAND O LAKES® Cheddar Cheese, shredded Combine all ingredients in slow cooker except creamed spinach and cheese. Cover; cook on Low heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or until carrots and potatoes are tender. Increase heat setting to High. Stir thawed spinach into hot soup mixture, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soup is thickened (6 to 10 minutes). To serve, spoon into individual serving bowls; sprinkle with cheese. Makes 8 (1 1/3-cup) servings. TIP: For an easy shortcut, you can substitute coleslaw mix in place of the shredded cabbage.

As a matter of fact when it comes to making soup my husband has shown me a few recipes. He is actually getting ready to prepare his homemade Chicken Rice soup. We had a whole lot of chicken legs and thighs and cooked them in the oven for a little while and then barbecued them later. You can use about four or five pieces of chicken if you like. He saved the broth from when he cooked them in the oven earlier and then he adds mixed vegetables and if you have carrots, throw them in also. And of course you add rice to the concoction. It is actually pretty good. JUst to let you know, of course you need to debone the chicken after it is cooked.

I really like tomato soup, and also bean with bacon soup. I'm a little boring though, cause I just make it from the can usually. lol

I have lots of soup recipes on my website. The link is: http://www.recipesforvegans.co.uk/soups.html I like carrot and corriander soup the best, but I also like think chunky soups in the winter with lots of beans to fill you up and nice and warm to get you heated right through.

A very simple soup to do is pumpkin soup Pumpkin Soup 1/4 pumpkin (or depending on your desired quantity) herbs: bay leaf dried thyme basil garlic pepper 3-4 cups water 1 beef or chicken broth cube 1 tablespoon butter 1. Boil the pumpkin in 3-4 cups water. Put the herbs together in an old handerchief or cheesecloth. Tie it up and throw it into the pot along with the pumpkin. 2. When pumpkin is tender remove from the broth. Save the broth. 3. Mash the pumpkin or put in food processor 4. In a pan melt the butter and and the broth cubes. 5. When broth is melted, put the mashed pumpkin season with a little salt and pepper then pour the saved broth. 6. Continue to stir until the soup is thick enough. 7. Season to taste accordingly. You may also opt to use a little cream or milk to make the soup richer. enjoy :)

One of my childrens favourite and one of the easiest is my Cheese Tortellini Soup. I also make this at the bar I manage, and I normally always sell out. chicken or vegatable stock cut up carrots, celery, onion, red and green pepper cook tortellini seperately then add to stock with veggies easy, cheap and the kids love it.
