Anyone else love soup? I have been in a real soup mood lately. I have been making soups on the side or as a meal with a loaf of crusty bread. Soup/stew/chili recipes are one of my favorite things to make, especially this time of year. When I hostessed a "Soup Swap" for my farmgirl chapter, it was one of the best get-togethers! So, why not do a "soup swap" here? Post your favorite recipes!

One of my favorites is "Black Bean Soup""

2 Cans of black beans, drained and rinsed, with 3 TBSP of liquid reserved

1 cup diced onion

2 TBSP olive oil

1 diced sweet pepper

2 ribs celery diced

1 clove garlic, pressed through a garlic press

1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cumin

2 cups chicken broth

Puree 1 of the can of beans with the reserved liquid. Brown onion in oil, then add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer 1/2 hour.

Top servings with a dollop of Greek yogurt and 1 peeled, chopped orange mixed with 1 Tbsp of fresh cilantro and 1/4 diced red onion.

Note: This is not so much a recipe as a how to.

Potato Soup w/ Corncob Broth

Corncob Broth
6-8 corncobs
1 yellow onion - quartered
1 Chopped stalk celery
Salt & black pepper to taste
Red Pepper flakes - optional
1 Smashed clove of garlic
Water to cover by two inches.

Put all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low overnight or 8 hours. Strain through cheesecloth or Viva paper towels.

Use your favorite potato soup recipe and substitute one pint of corncob broth for part of the water or milk.

Corncob broth cans easily using the vegetable broth recipe in Ball Blue Book.

Soup is too easy. I like a lot of garlic in mine and Worcestershire sauce. Here is my favorite soup---can be crock potted or just cooked on the range. It's Vegetable Hamburger Soup. Brown one pound of ground beef in a skillet. Put in pot and Add one half cup of chopped onion and two cups of canned tomatoes. Dice two cups of carrots and cube two cups of potatoes. Add one half cup of diced celery and one fourth cup of rice. Add one cup of beef broth and salt and pepper to taste and whatever else suits your fancy. So simple easy and GOOD! Needs to cook about an hour simmering on the range. I usually add more tomatoes and broth and put a can of corn and kidney beans in.

Barbara I make hamburger soup too with whatever I have on hand.

Michele, a Tbsp or two of Worcestershire sauce or apple cider vinegar will perk up soup.

Sara, LOVE the corncob broth how to! Canít wait to try. I have been trying to lower some of the fat in things. I have lost eight pounds so far by just adding a bit more exercise, and switching out some of my dairy to low fat dairy or substituting dairy for almond milk.

Barbara, I will make your hamburger soup this weekend! Sounds so good.

Last night I made Old Worlde Cauliflower soup. It is on the side of the organic Cream of Buckwheat cereal box made by Pocono. It is so delicious. I use skim milk instead of the cream now and it is just as thick and good. I also make it easy and buy the organic frozen riced cauliflower from Costco.

Canít wait to try the Hamburger soup!

Glad you like the soup. I copied that recipe out of a book nearly forty years ago when I first got married and we have never tired of it. It is so easy to vary the ingredients too. And I do love easy cooking. I am going to try your black bean soup when I get some black beans---I love them so I know it has to be good.
