  4. This may not sound like an exciting soup- but it is simple, spicy, and sweet. It is named after a dear friends late mother, who perfected it during the long Iowa summers. She would routinely make this after walking through her garden picking vegetables. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

  7. I don’t have a blog but here is my delicious winter cheddar and broccoli soup recipe. Good luck to everyone that has entered!


    1 teaspoon pink rock salt
    1 teaspoon paprika
    2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
    2 tablespoons of good quality extra virgin olive oil
    2 small shallot, chopped finely
    2 medium cloves garlic, chopped finely
    1 small red onion, chopped finely
    1 large potato, peeled and cut into cubes (to make about 1.5 cups)
    1 teaspoon chives, chopped finely
    3.5 cups vegetable broth
    1 large broccoli, chopped into small florets (to make about 2.5 cups)
    3 cups grated tasty cheddar (plus 0.25 cups for garnish)


    Preheat oven to 180°C.

    Pour olive oil into a large saucepan over a medium heat and stir in shallots, red onion and salt, and saute for 3 minutes.

    Stir in the potatoes and cover and cook for about 5 minutes (or until potatoes are soft). Stir in the garlic, paprika and broth, and bring to a boil (and the potatoes are tender). Add broccoli and simmer (until broccoli is tender).

    Remove the soup from heat and puree with blender (watch out, it’s hot!). Add the cheddar to blender slowly, along with the mustard. Depending on how you like your soup, add more broth if you like thinner.

    Serve in a deep bowl. Add cheddar and chives to garnish. For something extra, toast some crusty bread with butter and chop roughly for some yummy croutons.

    Serves 4.

  25. BLT SOUP
    I found & tweaked this recipe when my husband went on a soup diet over the season of Lent. I needed to use a head of lettuce before it went bad & this recipe was a hit! Unique & yummy!
    * 6 slices bacon, finely diced, set aside some crispy pieces for garnish
    * 1/2 cup diced onions
    * 2 tablespoons butter
    * 3 cups finely chopped iceberg lettuce
    * 1/2 cup flour
    * 3 1/2 cups fresh or canned chicken broth, heated
    * 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
    * 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    * 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
    * 1 cup heavy cream
    * 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    * 1/4 cup sour cream

    In a large pot, cook the bacon until lightly browned. Add onions 7 cook, stirring, until soft. Add butter & stir until melted. Add lettuce and saute for a couple minutes. Sprinkle flour into the pot, then stir it until well blended. Remove the pot from the heat & add the hot chicken broth, tomatoes, nutmeg and pepper. Heat the soup to boiling, stirring constantly, then reduce heat & simmer gently for a few minutes. Add the cream and mix well. Then mix together the mayonnaise and sour cream. Serve each portion of soup with a dollop of mayonnaise mixture topped with crumbled bacon. Toast croutons make a nice garnish. Also, feel free to have some fun with this & improvise. I’ve added chicken, beans & noodles to this at different times & it’s always turned out yummy!

  33. Love these soup recipes! We started having “souper” Sundays recently and I always am looking for something new to change it up a bit. I am copying down a ton of recipes from your giveaway comments. Thanks!

    Here’s our favorite recent soup. It is a Moosewood recipe that I have altered some:

    Potage Jacqueline (Sweet Potato Bisque)
    2 T coconut oil (or olive oil)
    2 cups chopped onions
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1 tsp. grated fresh gingerroot (or about 1/4 t ground ginger)
    3 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
    4 cups water
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 tsp. salt
    Black pepper to taste
    1 1/2 cup milk (some of this can be cream instead)

    1. Sauté onions in the oil until translucent and very soft, stirring occasionally. Add celery and ginger, and continue to cook until onions begin to brown. Add sweet potatoes, water, bay leaf, salt and pepper, and bring to a rapid boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until sweet potatoes are tender.

    2. Remove and discard bay leaf. In blender or food processor, purée small batches of soup mixture with milk and heavy cream. (Or use a stick blender–easy!) Adjust salt and pepper to taste, and reheat gently, but do not boil.

  34. I don’t have a blog so I will leave my recipe on here. I love green tomato stew! Bread and brown stew beef, chop up onions & green tomatoes. Add all to a pot & add beef stock & spices of your choosing. YUM!!!

  35. Tortilla Soup Recipe

    Prep time: 10 minutes
    Cook time: 20 minutes


    6 (6-inch) corn tortillas, preferably a little old and dried out
    1/4 cup grapeseed oil, peanut oil, other high smoke-point oil
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 medium Anaheim, poblano or jalapeño chile, seeded, veins removed, chopped (Depending on the hotness and flavor desired. You can also mix chiles – 1 Anaheim and a half jalapeño.)
    4 cups chicken broth or homemade chicken stock
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained (recommended Muir Glen fire-roasted)
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)
    1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
    1 ripe avocado
    1/2 cup (2 oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or mild cheddar)
    Chopped fresh cilantro
    1 lime, cut into wedges

    1 If you are starting with somewhat old, dried out tortillas, great. If not and you are starting with relatively fresh tortillas, put them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven at 200°F for 10-15 minutes to dry them out a bit. It is best to start with tortillas that don’t have a lot of moisture in them. Cut tortillas in half, and then cut the halves into 1/4-inch wide strips. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a 3-quart pot. Working in three batches, fry the tortilla strips in the oil, until lightly browned and crisp. Remove the tortilla strips from the pan and let drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.

    2 Add the chopped onions to the pan, cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the chopped chile and cook for 2-3 minutes more, until the onions and chiles have softened. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more. Add the broth, tomatoes, and salt. Increase the heat to high, heat until the soup begins to boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the shredded chicken and cook until heated through.

    3 To serve, pit, peel, and cut the avocado into 1-inch pieces. Divide half of tortilla strips among 4 individual serving bowls; ladle in soup. Top with avocado and cheese; garnish with remaining tortilla strips and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

  36. This is my go to soup recipe for All American Cheeseburger Soup from my Better Homes and Garden’s Cookbook

    2 14 ounce can lower-sodium beef broth
    2 medium potatoes, scrubbed and coarsely chopped
    1 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
    1 8 ounce shredded cheddar and American cheese blend (2 cups)
    1 6 ounce can tomato paste
    1/4 cup ketchup
    2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
    1 cup whole milk
    Toasted buns or rolls
    Cheeseburger toppings, such as pickles, onions, lettuce, mustard, and/or ketchup (optional)

    1. In 4-quart Dutch oven cook beef, onion, celery, and garlic over medium heat until meat is browned and vegetables are tender; drain off fat.

  39. a kitchenaid stand mixer is one of my big girl dreams (i’m just now 31), and so i’m including my favorite recipe for a roasted cauliflower soup (my roommate is vegan and this soup makes us BOTH happy!) the flavor profile reminds me of the comfort of eating chicken soup!

    olive oil
    freshly ground black pepper
    1 medium yellow onion, chopped

    1 cup water
    1/3 cup chopped fresh dill (or more if you’re like me!)

    Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place cauliflower florets and carrots into a large bowl. drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and season with ground pepper. Roast vegetables in the middle of the oven until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally, for about 25 to 35 minutes.Remove from oven and transfer back to the bowl you used earlier.

    Peel and chop onion and garlic while the cauliflower mixture roasts. When it’s ready, heat a large, heavy pot or dutch oven over a medium flame. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and sauté onion until softened and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add cauliflower mixture to pot, along with broth and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low to let soup simmer 20 minutes or so.

    Toward the end of this time, carefully ladle out 3 cups of cauliflower and broth and purée it in a food processor or blender. Return the purée to the soup pot and stir to blend. Remove from heat, stir in the fresh dill and adjust seasoning with salt. Serve.

    Chicken enchilada sopu

    2 cans cream of chicken soup
    2 cans of enchilada sauce (red, not green) If sizes are different, get as close to a 1 to 1 ratio with soup and sauce)
    2 cups milk
    2 cups shredded cheese (Mexican blend is best.)
    Fajita chicken, cut into bite size pieces. 2 or 3 breasts, depending on your meat to soup ratio preference.

    Dump everything into a pot, stir, and heat until preferred temp. Top with crumbled tortilla chips, sour cream, and more shredded cheese. Enjoy!!
