Favorite Soup

Recommended Posts

I love cow heel soup, which you can find on the menu at some Caribbean restaurants in New York. I've made it at home a few times. Exotic and scrumptious.

I also love oxtail soup, split pea soup (made with the yellow split pea, not the green one), and lentil soup. Yummy.

My latest obsession is French onion soup.

although matzo ball soup is very close to my heart, my absolute absolute favorite soup (thinking about it is making me salivate slightly) is french onion when the cheese is gooey and the bread is delicious. soo goood.

Because, at the end of the day, you have a gaint pot of soup that can last for days and can comfort you for a long while. And you made it. You.

This post is perfect. Smiler

Agree with Rosa. One can either use a pot and cook for hours just letting the soup simmer or one can use a slow cooker. Both work exceedingly well!

Minestrone all the way.

Peruvian Sopa Criolla is also divine.

Hot thick black beans soup or broad beans creamed soup with croutons made in the oven with olive oil.

The French Onion Soup made by my uncle Carlos Dargent. Unbelievable. Unfortunately a family secret. He "kicks" everyone out of the kitchen. We are not even allowed to know what is in his shopping list. It is to die for.

We need some more recipes people. Lets start sharing again.
