Food on Friday # 44 ~ Late Summer Soups

There’s nothing quite as nice as a home-made soup.  So, how about some soups for early autumn?

Here in my part of England there has been a sudden change in the weather.  The bright sunshine has gone, to be replaced by cold, grey, damp mists.  A warming soup is the perfect thing to come home to after a long walk in the early autumn.

Also, soup is great to make for dinner, and then taking to work for lunch the following day.  A good tip, when you cook, always make enough so there are some leftovers for another meal.  Who can find the time to cook every single meal from scratch?!?

First this week, from Simply Recipes we have a dish by Sally Vargas ~ creamy tomato and white bean soup.  I know my friend in Orange County will like this because the recipe calls for a lot of garlic.  I think I’d be tempted to cheat on this dish and use canned chopped tomato ~ if I couldn’t find the time to go and buy fresh wholesome produce.

This is a cracking dish from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest ~ crockpot French onion soup with cheesy French toast.  And this post from Tieghan is a video.  You know what, a couple of bowls of this would make a lovely dinner for a cooler evening.

I can’t say that I’m a big fan of pumpkins, but I like the look of this creamy pumpkin and cumin soup from English girl Petra at Food Eat Love.  And, I’ve just been reading some stuff that says cumin, especially black cumin, is incredibly good for you.  So, I’m going to try this dish with black cumin…

Now from Ros at Cooking Up The Pantry we have a great looking, and different, cream of carrot soup with fresh garlic and thyme.  What’s not to like?

Chungah at Damn Delicious gives us this tasty, healthy, and unbelievably easy 30 minute recipe for Thai shrimp soup.  This looks bloody brilliant!

This is just a fabulous recipe from Jessica Merchant at How Sweet It Is ~ late summer corn tortilla soup.  And I know my friend in Orange County will be impressed with this, because it’s garnished with sliced radishes ~ and there’s no cheese!

  3. I like making soup, it means I can get veg into the kids without any arguments. The favourite in my house is roasted butternut squash soup although I prefer potato and leek 🙂
