i have never made soup except for vegetable soup. i would love to learn how to make it. i do make chili about 2-3 times a month. i love eating left-over chili. i love potatoes.......so i know i would love potato soup yummy yummy!!!!!!
We have soup night once a week right now.............if we were having our normal weather we would eat soup a few nights a week but we have been very mild this winter so we are still using the bbq and smoker!
I make leek and potato soup every other week, DH isnt to fond of veggie soup. I made brussel sprout and chestnut soup a few weeks ago and that was yummy ( i didnt tell anyone it was brussel sprouts until after they ate it LOL)
mermaid - here is the recipe I use - I dont really measure anything though - just chuck it all together
chop an onion finely and a couple of leeks and saute in a small bit of butter.
add water and a vege stock cube and then add chopped potatoes ( I suppose I use about6-8 medium sized ones). season to taste
boil until potatoes are soft and starting to fall apart.
drain off water ( if you like soupls thick then drain alot - if you like them thin then dont drain as much )
blend soup ( i use a little hand held blender whisk), I always add a good measure of cream and stir it in and then serve while piping hot). Its very filling
hope that made sense - its hard to remember the recipe when its just in your head and not written down
I make soup once a week or more during the winter. During the summer I make soup on a Sunday so we have something to look forward to after the rugby.
I think I'll try leek and potato soup next week. I made butternut squash and chilli soup on Tuesday night and it was delicious. I guess I must be lucky as DH loves soup and eats any leftovers for lunch too!
