I personally love lentil, and ham and bean soup. I make chili in my Dutch oven with great grandmas recipe. How about you folks? P.S. I use my crock pot often for some soups smile

anyone else have to re read the title of this thread 3-4 times, b/c their brain kept reading "Soups" as "Sopus"... and i couldn't figure out who was making a Shell oil at home... ... it's late...that's my excuse anyway..

Latest is hot and sour soup with lotsa mushrooms, some peppers and vinegar, tofu scallions,mushroom stock and egg. I add vegies. Used to love Ham and bean soup. Vegie chili. pasta fazool. Bouillabaisse has been built in my mind many times, but I haven't seen a recipe simple enough for my skill set. grin2

I can make a mean RED Lentil soup. Its actually very easy to make and cheap. I throw in some Tumeric Cercumin vitamins and it comes out good but will stain anything yellow! I also like to make Pasta e [censored] every now and then. Most online recipes work fine and its hard to screw up.

Is there an easy recipe for this? I love the hot and sour soup at my local Chinese place but I'm sure it's terribly unhealthy. I'd love to try it myself

https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/hot-and-sour-soup/ This wasn't the exact one I used but close enough.. All the ingredients were found in my local supermkt. I boosted up the hot with pickled jalapeno slices and a few tablespoon of their vinegar for the sour. The mushrooms were just medium sized buttons and I used mushroom stock instead of vegie or chicken stock. I'm trying to eat more vedgies and less meat.Tofu is like a sponge.it is more texture than taste it is so bland It disappears into a spaghetti sauce but gives it a texture. grin2

My favorite soups are very basic. I don't care much for creamy type soups such as chowders or cream of(you pick). I can eat'em but, just not may fav. I like good homemade chicken soup with carrots, celery, onion & spinach and real chicken broth if possible and Pastina or Ditalini. But my overall favorite is homemade Italian Wedding Soup with light amount of tomato & tiny meatballs and Orzo(Rosa' Marina). Lest we not forget Greens & Beans with Italian Sausage. I call this a soup as well. And don't forget the good bread! laugh

The hot and sour soup comment reminded me of another favorite. Sizzling rice soup. Now that stuff is the ticket in a cold day.

"I love 'em all---except liver" Just made a hambone soup featuring bacon, cabbage and vegetables. It was excellent. N.Y.Times recipe. I mention something and my sister shoots me recipes.
