Soups.... i know we have done this before

but what is your favourite soup?

whilst tucking into a nice hot bowlful of leek and potato soup.

What soups do you like?

The only tinned kind i am partial to is a particular variety that comes in 57 kinds of Oxtail.

We do like leek and potato, Chicken is a must i always have a few portion in the freezer for when man flu hits my household. Also pea nad ham is always welcomed here.

Not keen on those ramen type soups as they are all water.

we like nice thick hearty soups - am learning to like scotch broth.

Saffys roasted red pepper soup always goes down well too.

carrot and coriander is a favourite.

also quite partial to a watercress soup.

so,what is your favourite and if you have a recipe, add it to your profile so we can all try it - and let us know you have added it.

Soups.

Well, Sammy! I think you know my love for Delia's slow roast root veg soup, its just SOOOO good.

I also like home made chicken soup, and home made carrot and coriander.

As for tins, yes, I also always keep one in the cupboard, and it is Heinz Oxtail. It's what I have when I'm poorly, and it has to be with that awful cheap sliced white plastic bread too! :) It used to have to be Sainsburys own as that's what I grew up with but they changed the recipe and added onion to it so I can't eat it any more.

Soups

Have just made a big pot of Broccoli and Stilton soup, I do try to rotate my soups from Tomato, Leek and potato and tomato and carrot. The only soup I will buy is Minestrone as I really cannot be bothered to make it! But will never buy tinned! With this weather it most definitely is soup weather!

Sam -- Morrisons Carrot and Coriander in the chill counter is very passable. A dash of pepper and Aromat, and you could pass it off as your own.

Soup...

My particular favourites are ham and pea and veg with lentils, always home made. I occasionally buy ready made chilled soups but always add things such as onions, sweetcorn or any other vegetables to hand. The only tinned soup I would ever buy is tomato which I occasionally crave - once a year perhaps - as it has a taste all of its own!

Soup

We have soup everyday in the winter months - but I confess to buying in. My favourite to make is leek and potato, also like spicy parsnip with a warming flavour of curry. French onion soup is another favourite, but as a general rule we don't like chunky soups - tend to go for the smooth and creamy. Heinz Tomato is a must - luckily they have it on the English counter in the local supermarket!

Soup

Bit of a show off from me, but we were in the Botanical Garden in Singapore on Saturday and in the restaurant Soup of the Day was leek and potato!

Made me laugh as it's our favourite soup here in Wales. In fact it's so cold I might cook up a pot of it tomorrow.

Welshcookie - I take it that sunny Sydney, and Singapore are just memories now!!

We will be into soup weather soon, although it's supposed to be about 26C by the weekend, so still some warm weather to come.

I like leek and potato soup too. Often make pumpkin soup or kumara plus red lentil - both favourites here, but do buy in some tins for lunch occasionally.

Favourite soup

My favourites are Delia's London Peculiar, the roasted root veg, home-made French onion and home-made Scotch broth. I do keep a couple of tins of Baxter's cock a leekie in the cupboard though.

Soup

Yes, Sonya, and didn't we have a wonderful time? Yes we did! We thought Spring would have sprung when we were away. Not a bit of it. The daffs and crocus are at their best!

Jolly souping weather.

Soup

My homemade Chicken & Veg is my favourite followed by Ham & Pea. I also keep a few tins of Chicken and Mushroom condensed soups in the store cupboard to add to casserole type dishes when I cook them. I know perhaps they may be a little salty but feeling lazy I occasionally have a "Cup-a-Soup" for Lunch with a sarnie.

Fave Soups

I like a Broth, hubby likes a *stand your spoon up* Bacon and Lentil.
But we also like Chicken and Leek, Leek and Potato, and I do a mean *Almost Heinz Tomato* which is on my profile. This can be jazzed up with, Coriander, or Juice of an orange and the zest. or just a good grating of tasty cheddar......Mmmmm !!

We are not opposed to a cup a soup if a quick lunch is required, and always have a couple of different varieties in the cupboard.

Soups

We had lunch at a new (to us) Italian the other day. The real McCoy...like a decent restaurant in Italy not a tourist job. The soup was very interesting. Fennel and chicken. I don't normally go a bundle on fennel and I think there was some coriander in there as well, large chunks of deliciously tender melt in the mouth chicken. My guess is one could create similar with genuine home made chicken stock, potato and/or pea flour to thicken and fennel. Lovely combination even for me...and I don't do kinky food. I'd be fairly sure there was no onion in there - a very small amount of leek, maybe. A real treat to have genuine 'homemade' food and not a Brakes job.

Soups...

I tend to love homemade thick wintry soups like leek, potato and stilton; lightly curried sweet potato or squash; and pea and ham - oh, and Delia's slow roasted veggie soup, as James mentioned.

But in summer, I can be a sucker for chilled soups like vichysoise, chilled cucumber or watercress soup - all with a swirl of cream at the end across the top. I often serve these as aps at summer dinner parties on the patio. And, of course, one of my faves, gazpachio.
