For the Love of Soup

Updated on April 1, 2015

Soups On

It's no secret that I love to cook, and create new recipes, especially when it comes to soup.

If I were to write the meaning for soup in the dictionary it would go like this: Comfort food for all and any occasion.

My grandmothers on both sides of my family were soup makers. I remember as a child sitting and watching them cook thinking about all the things that I could add to the pot and make it taste good. Sometimes I would make a suggestion and it would be added, and other times not.

I was so happy when I was old enough to create and make my very own soups adding a little of this or a lot of that to the pot, let it simmer and cook away.

I will be sharing with all of you my soup, stew, and chili recipes. I make soups all year round so be sure to check back often to see if there is a recipe that you'd like to try.

Tools to Help You Make Delicious Homemade Soups

Some people think that it's hard to make homemade soups. I'm here to tell you that soup is one of the easiest meals one can make. You can either start with a bone, or start with a simple vegetable stock.

I never ever throw away a ham bone, turkey or chicken carcass, as these are great soup starters. If you're not planning on making a soup right away simply wrap up the bone or carcass, and throw it the freezer until you're ready to make that delicious pot of soup.

A large stock pot is perfect for making large quantities of soups and stews. They These pots are perfect for steaming lobsters, crabs, or for cooking large ears of corn.

There is nothing like soup; It is by nature eccentric; no two are ever alike, unless of course you get your soup in a can.

— Laurie Colwin "Home Cooking" (1988)

Sharing My Soup Secrets

I'm always trying new things in the kitchen when it comes to cooking. and thought that I'd share a few discoveries with you when it comes to making soup.

  • If you like garlic as much as I do you may want to try this next time you're making a soup, stew, or some kind of a sauce where you want that garlic taste to pop out at you. Rather than chopping the clove or cloves of garlic and adding them to the pot try grating or pressing instead. I find that this creates a delicious and aromatic taste sensation.
  • I've learned through trial and error that pasta should never be added to the soup in the beginning of its creation. When using larger pastas such as elbow macaroni, you should cook it separately and then add to the soup just before serving.
  • When available always try to use fresh spices and herbs rather than dried.
  • To remove fat from soup simply chill the soup for an hour or so in the refrigerator. When you see that the fat is on the top skim it off with a spoon.

Ingredients That Are Great to Have On Hand - For Creating Soups

Aside from using fresh or frozen vegetables, spices, and herbs, I like to use dried beans, barley, soup mixes, hot sauces, rice, and pastas.

All of the Bob's Red Mill products I've ever used have been fantastic. there are many to choose from and can sometimes be found at your local grocery store.

 

Homemade Soups Versus Canned Soups

We all know that homemade is always the healthier choice but not everyone has the time or the desire to make homemade soups.

Do you make your own homemade soup?

Homemade all the way!

      I stopped buying canned soup years ago. I enjoy trying new soup recipes, although more often than not I just invent my own on the spot based on what I have on hand. Some of the best soups I've ever made came about that way!

        I really love soups in the winter. One of my favorites is chicken soup with plenty of wings. Then you eat the soup with pasta and carrots and munch on the wings. Thanks for sharing the soup tips. Passing this on.

        I prefer to make my soups from scratch. Unfortunately, my son doesn't eat soup so I don't make it as often as I'd like. Two of my favorites (and specialties) and Beans n Ham and Chicken n Dumplings. For the dumplings I make the dough with chicken stock rather than water. Yummy!

      • julieannbrady 3 years ago

        Living in Florida, I don't do soups like I did when I lived in Ohio. So, mine is either out of a can or a frozen bag!

      • Wednesday-Elf 3 years ago from Savannah, Georgia

        I eat a lot of canned soup for quickness and convenience for lunches (Campbell's is still a favorite), but have a favorite homemade chicken (or turkey) noodle soup recipe I used to make regularly for dinner from chicken/turkey carcases from a roasted chicken/turkey meal.

          Hiya SZ! I have never made as many soups as I have the past year. As long as they are homemade, they sell out quickly at my cafe. Out of at least a dozen different types of soup I've tried the past few months, surprisingly, one of the best sellers is my Cauliflower Soup.

          You as the SOUPS ON contributor is awesome! This definitely fits your cooking and writing skills. Congrats!!!

          My favorite homemade soup is 'chicken noodle'. One of hubby's favorite dishes was a homemade chicken pot pie I'd make, starting with simmering a whole cut up chicken in chicken broth, water and seasonings, then cool and take all the chicken off the bones and use a plentiful amount for the pot pie, and the rest would go into homemade chicken soup. I'd use a can of chicken broth to cook the noodles separately (as per your suggestion) and add the noodles to the soup just before serving. Hmmm, good!

          Hi Susan. Got a new one --Creamy Tomato Soup -- for the "Souper Bowl." Yeah, even I didn't think it was so funny.

          Here's my Baked Potato soup. Doesn't soup sound good on a rainy night like this?

          Vegetable soup is my favorite dish! I like it when I add tomato and bamboo shoot in the soup.

          I love making soup as the main course of dinner. The son was not so much into the idea, but everyone else in the family thought this Chayote soup was perfect with bread or tortillas.

          I'm having a hard time eating without soup. Often times, I put it on top of my rice to make it easy to swallow. Thanks for sharing.

          My homemade hot and sour soup is the best, my daughter makes a big pot of this and saves serving size containers in the fridge and freezer for me. http://www.squidoo.com/homemade-low-fat-hot-and-so...

          I love the seafood soup that I get at Longhorn's Steak House - that would be the one I'd be making next.

          Susan, I always love your soup recipes! My favorite soup changes and often ends up being whatever I made most recently. ;) I came up with a fabulous chicken, pumpkin, kale and cannellini bean soup last week that was aweseome, and even better when I added a little coconut cream and ginger to the leftovers, which totally transformed it. I also love making the hearty bean soup with beef flanken that my mom used to make every winter, but my husband isn't that fond of it so I don't make it very often any more. Two of my other favorite soup recipes are my Healthy Vegetable Soup with Cannellini Beans and Optional Chicken Sausage (http://margaretschindel.hubpages.com/hub/vegetable... which can be easily adapted to suit vegans, vegetarians and omnivores, and my super yummy Gazpacho (http://margaretschindel.hubpages.com/hub/the-best-... that has a surprising secret ingredient. Note: I included the links only because you specifically asked for them. :) Looking forward to more of your fantastic soup recipes!
