With fall around the corner, I'm really excited about trying lots of new soup/stew recipes! What are some of your favorites?
I love this Cream of Pumpkin soup recipe from allrecipes.com, but I make a few minor modifications. I add a little ground red pepper, and sometimes I use something less fattening in place of the heavy cream (half-and-half, whole milk, evaporated milk, fat-free half-and-half, etc.). It's still soooo good!
And I've never made the cinnamon croutons that the recipe calls for, but I'm sure they'd be good, too.
Here's one that I love that I posted here months ago :) A perfect balance of spicy and a little sweet - you can adjust the cayenne depending on your tolerance.
Ooh, that sounds yummy!
I made this for the first time last winter and loved it!!I wish I could have a bowl right now... sweet potato carrot soup!
I made this chicken noodle soup recipe a couple of times last year and it was awesome. I really liked the leeks in it.
I've got a "soup" folder in my bookmarks with literally 30 bookmarks in it. I love soup and can't wait for it to get cold enough to try some more recipes! (My DH says he'll eat soup anytime, but when it's still in the 80's out I don't really feel like keeping the stove on for hours at a time.
I got a good, speedy chicken tortilla soup recipe last year but it doesn't seem to be on the website anymore. I'm pretty sure I printed it though so I will have to try to remember to retype it on here.
Here's my sister's potato soup recipe--it is super excellent!
I'm on the lookout for a good chili recipe. The one I tried was super expensive to make and wound up too bitter/spicy and not enough sweet for my taste.
This is one of my BM's recipes for Carrot Soup. She served it at her wedding because it was something her family served with every get-together as a child. I though it was AMAZING!
Kelly’s Recipe for Carrot Soup
Over medium-high heat, melt 3 Tbsp. butter in large stock pot. Add 1 medium onion (sliced) and 6 medium carrots (peeled and chopped into ½ inch pieces), stirring for 2 minutes. Add 3 Tbsp. flour and stir 5 minutes. Add 5 cups chicken stock (I like chicken bouillon and water best), stirring until it reaches a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Cook 15 minutes or until carrots are tender. Add ingredients to blender and puree, adding salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
TIP: when blending, add only a little liquid to a lot of vegetables to avoid blender “explosion” caused by heat buildup and fill blender less than halfway. Once blender is turned on, you can add more liquid through the hole in the blender top. You may have liquid left over at the end—that’s OK. The soup should be thick and creamy!
Garnish with whipped cream and chives. Enjoy!
@LadyHope -- I make a pretty mean chili based off of Rachel Ray's Indian Summer Turkey Chili
It has the sweetness and I throw in 2 chipotle peppers to give it some heat (which my husband prefers)
I made Chicken Tortilla Soup tonight and put the recipe on my new blog since it's no longer on the website I got it from originally. Super yummy!
I love soup and as FIL has a huge pumpkin patch will try your recipie Laura H x
I just got an email from Pillsbury with some stew and slow cooker recipes. YUM! I'll write them up and post them in a little bit. YAY for Fall!!
I just tried a new recipe last night and LOVE it!
Potato & Leek Soup
1 tbsp. butter3 leeks - chopped (only the white and light green parts)2 celery stalks chopped2 Cups chicken broth1 Cup Water3-4 large white potatoes, peeled and diced2 Cups Milk2 Tbsp Lemon JuiceSalt and Pepper to taste
In a large pot, melt the butter and add leek & celery. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes.Add the chicken broth, water and potatoes. Bring to a boil, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes (until potatoes are tender).
You can use an immersion mixer to mash up the potatoes, but I just used a regular old hand masher and that worked really well. You can make it as smooth or chunky as you want.Add the milk, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix and heat through.
I'd say this made probably about 4 to 6 large servings. Great for a cool fall day!
That sounds really good, kat.m!
That does sound yummy!!! Maybe I'll be trying this this weekend. : )
I haven't forgotten to post some recipes I have, just got sidetracked with work. UGH - they apparently don't get that I need my PW time. : o )
It is delish! And filling :)
I love this beef stew recipe the meat just falls apart in your mouth!
I'll have to try that beef stew recipe. I miss having real beef stew. My husband likes it made more like a thickened vegetable soup. It tastes good, but it's not what I call beef stew.
I made beef stew this weekend--so tasty!
The recipe I use is from a blog called My Kitchen Apron... You cook the beef in a dutch oven in the oven for 4-6 hours (with tomatoes and onions and things) before you add in the broth and potatoes. So tender and delicious!
I loved that recipe! the meat and potatoes were so tender. I recomend it to everyone. I makes a huge batch though i have to cut it down just to fit in the crock pot.
