Soup for the Sick

Last weekend I had a sick husband on my hands... a sick husband who was living on soups. Instead of making a huge pot of one kind of soup and living on it (which M would hate) I took this as an opportunity to make soups.. hearty enough to fill me sick man's stomach and mine too..

The first is my favorite and one of my go to soups.. it is Sunny Anderson's Roasted Tomato Soup. This soup is rich, hearty and absolutely delicious. I add a green pepper to for an extra kick.


My second soup of the weekend was a Southern Chicken Corn Chowder. First time making this one and it was another winner.. i omitted the bacon bits and M and I are not a fan of celery.. but next I think I'd add a second jalapeno or a dash a paprika. We like a kick :)


Soup number three is another favorite in our house.. Black Bean Tortilla Soup. I add a small can of corn and a spoon full of salsa to the mix. Sometimes even half a chicken breast depending on how hearty I want the soup to be.  Mmm so good and easy too.


Our last soup of the weekend was a Classic Beef Noodle Soup. This was a slightly less easy soup to make and I was missing a few ingredients.. I had no idea what a Thai bird chili was or chili bean sauce. I used regular lite soya sauce instead of dark and used wheat spaghetti instead of udon noodles. I added a handful of bean sprouts. The result while good was just a tad salty.. but the bigger problem was that it was just too difficult to eat..


What is your favorite soup to make? I am a soup lover and always looking to try new ones.

All four of those soups look amazing! I am bookmarking them all:) I usually make a lot of white bean or black bean soups, but I try to mix it up with lentils every now and again:)

I feel like I have been eating nothing but soup lately, but it is really good. I really love that first recipe. I hope your husband feels better soon.

Oh my gosh those first two look delish! I'll have to try them. I made crockpot tortilla soup this weekend which is a staple at my house. Mmmm. I love soup.

My favorite soup to make is homemade chicken soup! It's a little bit of work but so good! Basically any soup made from scratch though can win my heart :)

That tomato soup looks gorgeous - I shall have to give it a try soon as it's still damp cold and miserable in this part of the world, definitely soup weather.

My favourite is roasted butternut squash and bacon, delicious always.

Soup is great when you're feeling sick, huh? My favourites are potato soup and minestrone soup. I have a slow cooker black bean soup recipe I like too:

I love to make soups too! I made a tomato, chicken & rice soup yesterday. My boy wants cream of broccoli for his birthday ... cream of celery soup is actually the only way we'll eat celery :).

I love soup when I feel sick, the best comfort food!

Caroline said...

Soup is definitely one of my favorite things. I love all of the above!! Meh, I think I'm getting sick as well though, but hopefully I don't NEED any of these!

M said...

Lucky me....the soups tasted awesome....not sure which one was my favorite. I think its a tie between the tomato and the corn chowder. Hmmm, actually the bean tortilla was also good...I guess I can have them all again!
