SOUP you idiot

Postby Herbsman » Sun Nov 28, 2010 12:04 am

What the hell is your favourite soup? Do you like soup that is basically just vegetable flavoured water or do you like it so thick with protein and carbs that the spoon stands up in it? Do you like it with big chunks, small chunks, or blended into a 'hot vegetable smoothie'?

I don't have any recipes to share with you but I will let you know that I have to have my soup ingredients matching in colour. So I either have orange soup (red lentils, carrots, butternut squash) or white soup (cauliflowers, potatoes, cannelini beans) or green soup (broccoli, spinach, whatever, man). Fairly watery, semi-blended, with nice chunks. Basically liquid fuel and nutrients.

Also, should soup always be accompanied by bread?

I love soup, especially during the wintertime. I'm partial to blended or semi-blended vegetable and/or lentil soups. Carrot's my favorite. Bread is a bonus but not completely necessary.

There is one soup that is superiour to all others, and that is yellow pea soup. Preferably so thick you have to cut it with a knife. And served with mustard of course, on a thursday.

I like 'chuck everything in' soup. Last night I made soup from about 4 carrots, an onion, spinach, peas, a tin of chick peas, black pepper, a veg stock cube and sea salt. Sometimes I put in curry paste and occasionally there's cider vinegar. Strangely adzuki beans are not a feature of my soup, they are a strong feature of 'chuck everything in' stir fries. Cauliflower and broccoli are good in soups, including the stem bit what people often discard unconsumed.

The thicker the better and sometime's it isn't soup, it's more baby food. Runny, mainly water, type soup is a hellish abomination.

In our house it is required to use the sign language for soup when mentioning it, and I usually do when typing it.

No this the worse type of soup, cos it all ends up tasting the same. Takes me back to school days and not being able to leave lunch until I finished the soup. I would dunk the bread but after that I was stuck with half a bowl of brown soup. Still gives me shivers... Nearly scared me for life.

Soup needs to be about a couple of flavours.

Actually the best soup I have ever had is a clear tomato and basil soup my mum makes, using home gown tomatoes and basil.

Lentil soup damnit. :x

And Greek rice soup with loads of olive oil, lemon and garlic.
It supposedly cures a cold and pretty much everything else. :evil:

Don't diss my soup or you will have a soup fight on your hands that just can't handle.

Yellow pea soup should be banned. Pumpkin soup is where it's at.

No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
