cool thread. i have always maligned soup. i still don't think of it as a real food. it makes me feel hungry immediately. but i'd like to try some new soups. another one of those words i hate in plural.

gonna make another soup tomo night, stay tuned

something gross about the phrase "soup log"

rip van wanko, Monday, 10 September 2018 15:26 (one year ago) link

people who don't like soup confuse me. I've only met a few irl. one person just didn't like the amount of liquid mixed with solids and how they felt after consuming it which i guess seemed fair, like that might be a thing that effects people.

it's turned autumnal here in the last couple of days so i quite fancy making some borscht.

Soup log is how Campbell’s concentrated cream of mushroom comes out of the can.

i don't really have a recipe for it. used to use beef broth, no longer eat meat, so veggie or sometimes mushroom broth for me, beets, carrots, potatoes, half a white cabbage, onion, sometimes tomatoes. some apple cider vinegar and some dill and some sour cream. apparently traditionally the vegetables are cooked separately from the broth then added but i just sauté them together in the pot before adding broth.

9.10.2018

1 butternut squash
5 carrots
1/2 big yellow onion
many cloves garlic
chicken broth
fresh mint
fresh basil
1 can coconut milk

-cut squash in half, scoop out seeds and fill cavity with olive oil, garlic, mint, basil. roast til flesh soft
-chop carrots, onion coarsely & fry in big pot til soft
-add broth, squash, coconut milk, another sprig of basil, boil for while then blend

turned out a pretty yellowy orange, taste very creamy but not too rich

flopson, Tuesday, 11 September 2018 16:46 (one year ago) link

hmm i basically make a v similar soup but without those herbs and with cayenne and ginger. might try more like that

( ͡☉ ͜ʖ ͡☉) (jim in vancouver), Tuesday, 11 September 2018 16:55 (one year ago) link

ya ginger is my typical go to with a carrot soup, but i was feeling crazy. also living the fresh herbs philosophy just using whatever i have handy it’s working out well so far

flopson, Tuesday, 11 September 2018 16:59 (one year ago) link

so far i am more intrigued by the first soup, but i want to show my appreciation and support for '

many cloves garlic
', which should be in every recipe that requires garlic

should I add some gorgonzola or is that a bad idea

chipotles

mick signals, Sunday, 18 November 2018 21:18 (ten months ago) link

maybe crumble gorgonzola on top

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 18 November 2018 21:31 (ten months ago) link

chipotles not a bad idea but it needs something salty and umami-ish I think.

I also have sharp cheddar.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Sunday, 18 November 2018 21:49 (ten months ago) link

the ingredient you seek, is broth

flopson, Sunday, 18 November 2018 22:13 (ten months ago) link

I could defrost some chicken stock, yes, but I kind of don't want to waste my good stock on a soup I think may be hopeless.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Sunday, 18 November 2018 22:25 (ten months ago) link

pop a cube or a spoonful of powder stock in there then

flopson, Sunday, 18 November 2018 22:38 (ten months ago) link

i'm questioning the wisdom of a milk/vinegar combo

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 18 November 2018 22:54 (ten months ago) link

Ok I added a leftover knob of gorgonzola and some browned butter and some cheaters beef stock made from a jar of BetterThanBouillonTM that has been in the fridge for uh somewhere between five and one year. Then some chopped sage from the garden. And a bunch of fresh-ground pepper. Much improved.

xpost I went with a small glug of vinegar because I thought it needed some acid. Basically just buttermilked it.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Sunday, 18 November 2018 22:54 (ten months ago) link

It's fine really, the pale pinkness from the red bell pepper is kinda off-putting to me.

this is good https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/02/dinner-tonight-nordstroms-tomato-basil-soup-recipe.html i made half batch, needs more basil than called for and less heavy cream, i don't know how much i used but it was a lot less, could maybe even be skipped entirely
(nb i have never eaten this or any food at nordstrom cafe)

1 carton of low-sodium vegetable broth
3 or so carrots
two handfuls of the small kind of potatoes
2 parsnips
1/3 fennel bulb
brown lentils
white pepper
black pepper
random herbs
salt
water

All but the lentils were left over from a roasted veg dish I made on Sunday but wouldn't fit in the pan. I'm thinking I should have used my can of cannellini beans instead of the lentils. I tasted it and it was fine, but don't know for sure since this was made to take to work for lunch tomorrow. Hot sauce fixes everything though.

about a week ago i made this soup but i had baked the beets whole before putting them in the soup at the last minute, seemed kind of too sweet! but I'm not sure if it was the baking of the beets, or the pretty cheap veg broth i used (they're often too sweet)

( ͡☉ ͜ʖ ͡☉) (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, 28 November 2018 18:26 (nine months ago) link

oh yeah i chopped the baked beets into matchsticks before putting them in the soup, I'm not a maniac

( ͡☉ ͜ʖ ͡☉) (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, 28 November 2018 18:26 (nine months ago) link

ha. this sounds like something i'd like to do one of these days. i guess the baking /could/ bring out more of the sugars (eg i think when i steam/bake beets they taste sweeter than when they're just sauteed?) maybe golden beets would be in order (less sugar content i think?). now that i think about it i think i'd be tempted to throw in raw, grated beets towards the end. maybe just controlling sweetness by trying to be clever with quantity (it sounds pretty hearty already, eh)? anyways, i needed this reminder, thx!

form that slug-like grex (outdoor_miner), Thursday, 29 November 2018 00:09 (nine months ago) link

raw grated beats at the end sounds like a good addition: interesting textural and flavour contrasts and probably would bring a vibrancy of colour that perhaps the cooked beet lacks

( ͡☉ ͜ʖ ͡☉) (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 29 November 2018 00:16 (nine months ago) link

My sweet potato/tomato soup ended up going in kind of a different direction, owing to the fact that spouse had roasted the sweets with mystery seasonings that included cinnamon. I sauteed an onion and a couple of cloves of garlic, tossed in a 28 oz can of toms and the roasted sweets, added some milk and cream, blended up. Really good and super velvety, also a somewhat unusual color because the sweet potatoes were a deep purple variety??? Anyhow, leftovers for dinner tonight.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Thursday, 29 November 2018 00:36 (nine months ago) link

blended sweet potatoes in a broth add a very nice creamy texture i find. although i guess the milk and cream might have been the main culprits in this case

( ͡☉ ͜ʖ ͡☉) (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 29 November 2018 00:38 (nine months ago) link

i **cking love the purple sweets tayters. finding ways to incorporate them in things isn't challenging per se, but something i feel like i need (want) to remind myself to think about. tha soup sounds intriguing, quincie

form that slug-like grex (outdoor_miner), Thursday, 29 November 2018 01:40 (nine months ago) link

Even with the dairy, it was this really cool deep maroon color--neither red like a tomato or orange like the standard sweet potato. Didn't hurt that they were roasted over coals. Spouse reports that the mystery seasoning involved paprika and garlic powder? I swear I tasted cinnamon, but he denies this. And oh yeah like WmC I added sriracha. Good soup, will make again. And it will taste different but also good.
