Hey Hey Soup

[This soup was named for a jazz club in Kansas City. I was dubious about the chocolate in the garnish, but trust me, it's excellent. It's taken from a fantastic all-soup cookbook called "Blue Moon Soup" by Gary Goss, with amazing illustrations by Jane Dyer. Most of the soups are less exotic than this one, but all are delicious.]

2T butter

1 small leek, chopped (1 to 1 1/2 cups)

1/4 cu chopped chives

1/4 cu sliced mushrooms

2 lgs sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

1 T cooking sherry or dry white wine (optional)

1 tsp curry

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

2 cu milk

Garnish: 1 cup shredded Muenster cheese, 1/4 cu sliced mushrooms, and 1 bar of great chocolate, broken into bite-sized pieces.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

2. Melt the butter in a soup pot on medium heat.

3. Add the leek, chives, mushrooms, half of the sweet potatoes, the sherry if using, curry, salt, and pepper. Saute for 10 min, stirring w a wooden spoon.

4. Add the remaining sweet potatoes and 2 cups of water, and stir.

5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.

6. In a blender or a bowl, blend of mash half the soup with the milk until thick and silky smooth.

7. Return the blended soup to the soup pot and stir.

8. Place soup crocks on a cookie sheet. Ladle soup into crocks, and garnish. Bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned and bubbly.

[makes 4-6 servings]

I just looked it up, and it specifies only "great" chocolate. I forget which I use when I make it. (Have not made it recently---seems like a winter soup to me.)

WOW!!! I am thrilled. Now, here's my fantasy. You go to Regina's gig in Northampton, Ma. and after the show, you convince her to go with you to the Soup Kitchen Restaurant (located in Northampton and founded by the chef who wrote that recipe) and you sit down for a bowl of Hey Hey soup together. Smiler

PS Maybe you should post your story??!!

Holy crap, I would die w/ happiness if we could eat soup together! She would probably think I was a loonie though, asking her to come eat soup w/ me hehe But about my story... it's pretty freaking long, five pages or something, & the font was really little. I don't know if I could fit all of it in a post. Or could I? Would anyone have the attention span? lol
