Winter is about to hit us down under, so I want to start making some soups for dinner. The current soups I make are Leek and Potato, Sweet Potato and Rosemary, and Corn Chowder. I particularly want recipes that are vegetable based. Or if anyone can recommend a good soup cookbook. I can find ones that have one or two recipes I like the sound of, but thats about it....

I just made black bean soup and it was fantastic. I boiled the bone and some left over ham until the bone was clean. Removed the bone and added to the pot chopped onions and garlic. Then I added a bag of black beans that I had soaked over night in water. Just drained of the water rinsed them and poured them into the boiling broth. I gently let the soup cook for about an hour or until the beans were tender. I served corn bread with it it was fantastic.

I just had a sausage veggie soup and it was out of this world! You buy bulk sausage and cook it. Add any veggies you like~onions, zuccini, stewed tomatoes, green and red peppers. Dice the veggies small. Add 2 cans of beef broth. Cook and eat! It is sooo good!

Here is a site that has our favorite bean soup recipe. It's quick, easy, healthy, and very delicious. We usually double the recipe, so it lasts a long time... http://randallbeans.com/pages/recipes/soup/easytofixmixedbeansoup.html We use the Randall Beans in our soup, but you could use dried beans, just soak overnight and rinse, and the soak again before you start your soup. Dried beans need to simmer a long time to soften, so allow time for that. I'm always looking for new ways to make sweet potatoes. Would you mind sharing your Sweet Potato & Rosemary recipe??? It sounds yummy!
