Soup Wednesday

When the soup is good, all is good.


My Favorite Tomato Soup!

This is no time for humility…I have to brag a bit because I made this recipe up by trial and error.  Sick of getting the typical tomato soup from whole foods near the salad bar for way too much money (I know they use canned tomatoes!), I decided to make my own.  It started with a glance at a recipe from a Food Combining cookbook I have, then … more


Soup Wednesday: Caldo de Pollo

I’ve had this chicken soup down in rustic markets in Baja California, Mexico while bike touring with Peter.  You can find it at any truck stop in Mexico according to Peter.  It’s a simple chicken soup best made with homemade broth (caldo is broth in Spanish).  In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever tried it without broth made from a real chicken carcass (sounds gross, eh?). It’s worth … more


Finally home to make soup on Wednesday: Leek and Cauliflower Soup

I’ve been home a few days now and under the weather.  Perfect time to make some soup.  A friend suggested chicken soup with matzo balls but I didn’t have the ingredients.  Instead, I went for some veggie soups.  Last night I made the Hungarian Mushroom Soup I already posted.  The day before I made a new soup that I will share today.  There is nothing like hot soup … more


Soup-er ‘Soup Wednesday’ guest columnist and fellow red-head, Connie Carpenter!

Okay, sorry, I missed last week.  Wednesday passed and I missed making a new entry.  Forgive me but I was a little bit occupied with a race in Belgium.  You know, the Fleche Wallone.  As mentioned, the Mur de Huy had me pretty uptight that day.  So, no soup.   Good news is, I’m back.  Not with another soup recipe from my book of soups, even better, with … more


Soup Wednesday: Dutch Mustard Soup

Dutch mustard soup     Speed skating in Holland in the cold, wet and grey shades of winter made soup of any kind a welcome start to every meal.  We often stayed at a ven Der Valk hotel in Wolvega in the north of the Netherlands and they made awesome soups.  I would not only have seconds but often thirds as well.   One of my favorites is … more


Day after Wednesday soup: Miso!

Miso Soup! I have a good excuse for making ‘Soup Wednesday’ happen on Thursday this week.  I’m at a bike race!  And, it started on Wednesday.  Thus, it’s Wednesday night, and I’m just getting to the soup.  Here at the race in Holland, the internet is down in the house we all stay.  So the posting will have to wait for tomorrow.  For all you soup lovers out … more


When the soup is good, all is good…

Peter and I say this with a Belgian (Flemish?) accent often: ‘when the soup is good, all is good’.  We heard it in a documentary on the US Postal Service pro cycling team awhile back.  It was one of the Belgian soigneurs who said it (with a real Belgian accent) it’s stayed with us since.   As mentioned, I love making soup, and it’s Wednesday again so I’d … more


Soup Wednesday!

It’s Wednesday again.  Since the inception of my ‘soup is good all is good’ commitment to sharing my favorite soup recipes with the world at large happened on a Wednesday, this category has thus been dubbed ‘Soup Wednesday’.  I think I’ll run out of soups before I run out of Wednesdays.   This week, let’s make the Creamy Parsnip Bisque soup I love so much.  It’s non-fat and … more


When the soup is good, all is good…

I admit it, I LOVE soup.  Homemade soup, that is.  I am the self-proclaimed ‘Master of the Soups’.  Almost everyday (at home), I make soup for me and Peter.  Especially in the winter.  There’s nothing better than homemade warm soup on a cold day in the mountains.   There’s so many soups I like to make I thought I’d share some of them here.  Over the next weeks, … more
