      Better to have soup with oats. Boil potatoes, green beans sliced into small pieces, carrots and beetroots. when the vegetables are cooked add oats and salt required, cook for 5 more minutes. You can add some fried onions if needed at the end which will add extra taste.(I added vegetables which i used to prefer, you can add whatever you like, for example- cabbage, cauliflower etc)

      Hi, cabbage soup is said to be dieting. I think, most of the vegetable soups can be eaten when you are on a diet if they don't contain much fat.

        The only fat in my home made vegetable soups is the small quantity of olive oil I use to sauté the onions, carrots and celery in. The other ingredients are just vegetables and stock. We have this as a main meal with bread or sometimes as a snack in the autumn/winter, after working outside on the vegetable plot.

          I am a "soup eater" too. It's o.k. to use some fat. 1 or 2 TBS olive oil per day is essential for the body.

        I would n't ham maybe OK, but spam would make an awful choice for soup.

          Agreed - pretty awful choice for anything, from what I remember of tasting it... smile

    My favourite homemade soup is thick country vegetable.  I use, carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, mushrooms, peppers, sweetcorn, parsnips, and whatever else is to hand.  Boil them with enough water, then add seasoning of salt, pepper, mixed herbs and a few stock cubes.  Sometimes, when it is cooked, I put it through a blender to turn it into broth.

    I prefer vegetable soup, its the healthy choice. I use some of the veggies we grow in soups. I do n't like eating processed meat, too many chemical preservatives in it.

      Instinctively I feel that you were right about this one. I believe this thread and the other 5 are merely starters for a clumsy and predictable main course of Spam Soup! yikes

      We've seen it too many times before, haven't we?  roll

        What spam are you talking about?  I have enough of it in my email. Do I have to taste it in my soup too? big_smile
        Here is the good one:
        Lots of chopped mushrooms, raw, not canned.
        Barley  - put it in cold water with some salt in it and cook it first with some chopped onions, couple of bay leaves. it takes appr. 20 minutes to cook barley.
        Then add chopped musrooms, chopped celery if you like, diced carrots.
        Bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes, add diced potatoes (one or two), ten minutes more. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with black pepper,chopped green onions or dill, add a table spoon of sour cream in your bowl and enjoy it. It will be thick, nourishing due to barley and very mushroomy, so you have to LOVE mushrooms. And you do not need any spam in it, it will fill you up. You can put lots of mushrooms but be careful with barley - it expands when you cook it, same as rice. You can even skip salt if you like, it will be tasty still due to mushrooms, or add some other dry spices instead, make sure with all natural ingredients and no sugar!

    Pre-emptive, really. The soups sound good though, so some good came from it. smile
