What soup have you eaten recently?
I like nearly all soups.
My home made beef soup this Wednesday.............................
I eat soup almost everyday.
In Nigeria (and I think most of West Africa) our idea of soup differes from that of the west. Our soups are rich mixtures of palm oil, vegetables, seafood, dry fish , meat and then some very local condiments like ogbono, egusi etc.
The picture is of pounded yam and egusi soup.
These soups are not eaten alone.
We eat them with a carbohydrate/starch meal. This could be pounded yam, plantain, cocoyam. Or it could be based on a grain like corn, wheat, millet or rice. Cassava is the most commonly used base for the carbohydrate part as it can be processed into so many forms like garri, fufu or loi loi. In some parts of Nigeria soups are eaten with plain cassava starch.
To eat, you roll a small ball of the carbohydrate (with your fingers), dunk it in the soup and enjoy.
The last soup I had a couple weeks ago was New England clam chowder (Progresso). It's one of my favorites.
I made some homemade soup with ground turkey, spinach, peas, garlic, and noodles. I wrote a hub about it called Homemade Soup: Cheap, Healthy, Fast, and Deeelicious.
Store-bought soups are nowhere near as good as homemade and they are much more expensive. Soups are pretty easy to throw together and can be customized for your tastes or what you have in your pantry or fridge.
Yesterday I had some chicken and dumplings soup from Oil Garden restaurant.
I made home made chicken noodle soup a couple of weeks ago....and had some clam chowder over the weekend.....both were yummy!!
I made chicken tortilla soup last night. It's spicy, creamy and full of veggies and grilled chicken. I love to garnish it with cilantro, tortilla strips and avocado slices. Yum!
I ate broccoli cheddar soup from Panera Bread yesterday...it was very good!
