Winter is on its way to my part of the world, and since finding the one Beetroot soup recipe that I absolutely LOVE, I realize Im missing out on something in life. SOUPS GLORIOUS SOUPS!

Please share your soup recipes here, can be vegetarian or meaty, teach me something new! :smile:


Regal Red Beetroot Soup

Ingredients:

5ml Cumin Seeds (Whole)
5ml Fennel Seeds (Whole)
5ml coriander ground
1ml cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1ml asafoetida
15ml oil

2 medium onions, chopped
1 carrot chopped
1 stick celery chopped
250ml grated butternut
4-6 beetroots, cubed
1litre stock
200ml plain yoghurt

Serves 4

Heat the oil on a medium setting
Add the whole seeds and allow to brown until you detect the aroma
Then add the coriander, cayenne pepper, bay leaf and asafoetida and allow to sizzle for a few seconds. Turn down the heat and gently fry the onions until soft. Add the garlic and saute for another 3 minutes.
Now add the vegetables and the stock and allow to simmer for 30 - 40 minutes until the beetroot is tender

    Purchase can at shop with particular flavour required. Heinz tomato is a particular favourite of mine....
    Using can opener in right hand, remove lid.
    Pour contents into pan.
    Heat or "nuke" in the microwave. NOTE: If microwave use suitable microwaveable plate to prevent explosion.
    Pour soup into bowl and eat.

    That's all Charissa.....(lol)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE soup. It's my favorite thing to eat! Potato is my go to. So of course it was hard to eat with counting. I gave this one a shot and I was completely sold. I almost always have some frozen in my freezer and will take it for lunch. It keeps my full and it's so good!

    bumping for more soup ideas :)

    I love the very quick, very easy Italian Wedding soup I make...

    1 carton (tetra-pak) low-sodium chicken broth
    1/4 cup dehydrated vegetable mix (I buy mine at bulk barn)
    1/2 cup acini de pepe noodles (those tiny bitty ones that end up round when cooked)
    frozen prepared meatballs (I use the Kirkland Signature ones from Costco, 6 or so)
    frozen spinach nuggets, as many as desired, I use 3

    Add everything except spinach to a large pot and bring to a low boil, until meatballs are heated through. Remove meatballs and cut into little pieces if desired. Add meatball pieces back in to pot, add spinach nuggets. Continue cooking until spinach has broken up and noodles are cooked.

    Preparation takes less than 5 minutes, soup is ready to eat in about 20 minutes.

  • The lentil, kale, and carrot soup on Deliciously Organic is TOO DIE FOR! Even without the kale, if it's not in season.

    This is my fave winter soup. Especially good when you've got a cold. The cumun wafts up from the hot broth and clears your sinuses. Excellent stuff! First you make the meatballs, then you make the soup the meatballs live in.

    Albondingas (Mexican Meatball Soup)

    First make your meatballs

    Meatballs

    1 lb. lean ground beef
    1 egg, beaten
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 of a carrot, minced as fine as you can get it
    1/2 cup COOKED rice
    1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped cilantro
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon ground cumin

    Make 20-24 meatballs out of above, rolling them in your hands.

    Then make your broth:

    6 cups chicken stock (preferably home made, but canned will do in a pinch)
    1/2 a medium onion
    3 stalks celery
    3 roma tomatoes, peeled seeded and chopped roughly
    1/2 cup cilantro, minced
    1 teaspoon cumin

    a large zucchini, large dice
    salt and pepper to taste

    Sautee the onion and celery in a nonstick pan just until it starts to get soft. Throw in the peeled tomato. Add the chicken stock and cilantro and everything else but the zucchini and bring this broth to a nice boil. Then reduce the heat to medium and keep it a good simmer for about 10 minutes.

    Then drop in your meatballs, gently so they don't fall apart. Cook them for 10 minutes.

    Lastly, add your diced zucchini and cook for 10 minutes.

    All done!
