I like to make soups too. My family and I like mushroom soup, minestrone, butternut squash soup, loaded baked potato soup, and Italian wedding soup. If you're looking for new recipes, try recipezaar.com They have a great selection of recipes!

I prefer homemade soups to canned. Some that are great are clam chowder, split pea and ham, ham and beans (we usually use pinto beans but you can use any kind you like, really), vegetable beef, chicken tortilla and plain old chicken and noodle with homemade noodles.

I often make a minestrone soup which is nutritious, filling and very very tasty indeed. I dont always follow my recipes exactly, so somedays it may have more pasta in than others or more bacon.....but generally its the same lovely soup. I also make mushroom soup a lot....love mushrooms! :) And pea and ham too. This can also vary a lot depending on the peas I have or the type of ham or pork. You might want to try a roast garlic soup too which is VERY nice....and because the garlic is roasted first, it doesnt have an over powering garlic flavour that makes your breath smell forever. You can make soup out of anything though...if you know the basic techniques.

They both sound quite heavy soups but I bet they taste great.

Yes, they are both a "meal in a bowl". Just add some good bread and maybe a green salad you have a quick and easy meal.

AbbeyB, You may want to try this simple Winter Melon Soup. Ingredients: * 250g, Pork Ribs, blanched * 300g Winter Melon, cubed * 1 Corn, chopped into 4-5 pieces * 1 tablespoon Wolfberries (optional) * 1.5 litre Water * Salt to taste How to do it: 1. Put all ingredients except salt and wolfberries. 2. Bring to a boil. 3. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking for 2 hours. 4. Half way to cooking, add in the wolfberries. 5. Add salt to taste. 6. Serve. This is a simple Chinese soup which is not only tasty but good thirst quenchers especially during hot summer periods. Enjoy.

Dice half a sweet onion-- put in soup pan with a small amount of oil- cook quickly to release all the great oils of the onion-- add water and chicken parts-- cook until chicken is fully cooked-- take out the chicken Add about 2 cans of chicken broth and about 2 more cups of water Add 2 diced potatoes and cook until semi soft Add 1/4 bag of thin noodles Add 2 bags of white corn Bring back to boil Hard cook 5-6 eggs Pick chicken from bone into small pieces add chicken to soup add parsley- salt- pepper to taste then cut up eggs and add to soup Its ready--- great hearty soup for the winter!!!

Hi AbbeyB, we love soups too, and I try to make one at least once a week. I use the slow-cooker, so it's very convenient for me. I usually use meat-bones and then add either sliced radishes or tomatoes, potatoes and onions, plus red dates and seasoning; leave it to cook for about 4-5 hours. My husband loves these soups!
