Do you like soup? Can't Post

Clearly a very important poll. Are you a fan of the sloppy, tasteless water-y stuff, with as many ingredients as possible chopped and whizzed into a blend of yuckyness? Even the word "soup" isn't nice! Or do you prefer drinking the horrible stuff, instead of eating real food? Wink

Option C was specifically put in for you, Magpie :-D [In reply to] Can't Post

Stew is a difficult one, and for me, I think it depends on what kind of stew it is. I'm not a fan of beef, so beef stew would be a no go. Chicken stew is lovely though. Is chili con carne a stew?

Oh, yes... chili. I like chili, too. [In reply to] Can't Post

thanks for noticing on the 'c' thing. lol
(which I didn't make up)

I made some sort of sweet, spicy black bean soup that didn't really work so well as a black bean soup, per se. But, right after making it, I got really sick with this flu thing and drinking the broth from that soup gave me such happiness. I threw the recipe out and couldn't find it later (on the internet) when I decided I really did want to make it again.

My beef stews are kind of soupy - that is, the broth isn't thickened. But there isn't a ton of broth in them so they're very chunky.

I make homemade soup! [In reply to] Can't Post

There are so many wonderful kinds. My favorite has spinach, garlic, and fresh basil, but there are many others. It's also very easy to make "leftover soup" using a broth or tomato base and a compatible set of leftovers,

Me neither (that description!). Shall we try to tempt poor Daniel with [In reply to] Can't Post

counter-descriptions of our yummiest concoctions/family favorites?

Like: Steaming, simmering, spoon-standing thick pot of hot tomato sauce, stuffed with pinto beans, chili peppers, shredded roast beef and chunks of Sweet Vidalia onions.

Or: Clear, savory, deep amber spiciness of chicken broth, dense with matzo balls, soft carrot chunks, egg noodles, fresh peas, and tender bites of celery.

(Sounds like a bad commercial, but my mouth is still watering anyway . . .)

Not really. [In reply to] Can't Post

The closest I get to soup is Ramen noodles or Spaghettios.

Yes, Pho actually. [In reply to] Can't Post

If you asked what I would choose as my last meal on Earth, or what I could eat a few times a week without complaint, it would be Pho, aka Vietnamese beef soup.

Pho on Wiki.

Option C [In reply to] Can't Post

I love soup if it's so full of what my mom used to call "goodies" that it almost stands up to a spoon. Like when a soup recipe turns into a casserole. Now that I'm a vegetarian, my favorite is my home-made chickpea-noodle soup :-)

My dad used to sing this song, to the tune of "Hail Hail the Gang's All Here":

Soup, soup, we all like soup!
Never stop to strain it,
Tip the bowl and drain it.
Soup, soup, we all like soup!
Any kind of soup will do.

(and for dessert:)

Pie, pie, we all like pie!
Apple pie or cherry,
Peach or huckleberry.
Pie, pie, we all like pie!
Any kind of pie will do.

I make a vegetarian "beef" stew [In reply to] Can't Post

replacing the beef with chickpeas and olive oil, but keeping all the rest the same (onions, carrots, potatoes, etc.) It's fabulous! We make it and beef stew side-by-side to satisfy both Uncle Baggins and me, and he tasted both and said he couldn't tell much difference.

Stew is so thick you can eat it with a fork. That's the one for me!

I like it but its not very filling [In reply to] Can't Post

A stew or broth is much more filling and is one of many things that makes winter the best season for me :)

Some favourite soups - chicken, tomato, mushroom, potato and leek.

The only one i dont like is lentil soup - tastes furry to me, though i havent had it in years so may love it now :P

Depends on the type of soup, but yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

I like potato, leek and tomato soup - even better if the veges are from my own garden.

Pumpkin soup is also a favourite. Stews of all kinds are also good in winter!

I will also put leftovers into the food processor and make soup if there is no other way to use them, I hate when things go to waste! Even if it tastes gross, I'll still eat it. I am obsessed with nutrients.

I like it. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have ramen noodle soup quite frequently and the mac and cheese I make might be more like a soup.
Soup is a great place to put leftovers.
It is also a bit on the inexpensive side - or tends to be.
I like it more during the winter.

Obviously you've never had good soup [In reply to] Can't Post

Must be true what they say about English cooking . . .

I adore soup. I pretty much live on it in the winter. Some of my favorites include
- Moroccan tagine (really a stew) made with lots of strange spices, lemon peel, almonds, and raisins in addition to the meat and veg.
- African ground-nut soup as made in Cote d'Ivoire: basically, a chicken soup with onions & carrots, but then you stir in some peanut butter and cayenne pepper. Eat over rice.
- Tortilla soup - start with the basic chicken soup but add Anaheim peppers, cayenne, & cumin. Enliven with lime juice. Crush some tortilla chips into a bowl and pour the soup in. (You can cheat and use chili-lime chips to flavor it up.) Garnish with a dollop of sour cream.
- Butternut squash soup garnished with caramelized onions and candied pecans.
- French onion soup - thick onion soup placed in a bowl, with a piece of bread on top and then a BUNCH of gruyere cheese on top of that, broiled in the oven until the cheese melts and goes all crispy.
- Around here we eat a lot of clam chowder. The right (white) kind. LOTS of clams, potatoes, and you must have a bit of bacon in for the right taste. Finished off with a bit o' cream.
- and that American standby, beef stew with lots of carrots and potatoes.

I've never cooked soup in my life, and neither has my partner (not that I know of anyway!). My mum does, and that's what put me off as a child. Wink I'm sure if I made it myself (with ingredients I like) then I'm sure it would be enjoyable.
