    Default Help me .... make soup !!!

    I have a confession

    I am terrible at soup. Every soup I have made turns out terrible.

    I dont know what it is - I just cant seem to do it.

    Pizza..

    You put in pizza.

    On a more useful note, stock, herbs, spices, any particular meat you want in it.

    I just made soup this morning, in a pot but you could probably do it in the slow cooker. I don't have measurements so just chuck it all in:

    Chicken stock
    Carrot
    Sweet potato
    Red capsicum (half)
    A few pieces of broccoli
    Zucchini
    Leek
    Onion
    Swede/turnip
    Chilli
    Garlic

    Cook it all up then blend it.

    The other one I quite like isnt make with those soup packs but is tasty, filling and quick anyway.

    2 chicken breasts, diced.
    1/2 red capsicum.
    2 carrots, diced.
    Those long green bean things with the ends cur off them cut in half, maybe a good handful of those.
    Diced zuccini
    Oyster sauce
    One onion
    Decent blob of garlic.
    That five spices mix or whatever it is.
    A good handful of spaghetti pasta.
    Enough stock to cover the lot.

    Pop a lid on the pot, bring to the boil for 15 mins or until the pasta/chicken is done then serve it up. Yummy, quick and only requiring one pot!

    My chicken and veggie

    500g Chicken diced
    Ltr chicken stock
    Two packets of chicken noodle soup
    4-5 carrots diced
    1 turnip
    1 swede
    1 parsnip
    Half a celery
    Tablespoon of minced garlic (or about 4-5 cloves crushed)
    Tablespoon of basil and same of oregano
    Top up with about another 1 litre of water (depending on ur stockpot size)

    I throw in the chicken to brown with the garlic and herbs, then throw in the veggies. Add the chicken stock let boil. Then top up with water and add the two packs of soup mix. Let simmer until veggies are soft.

    I also cook in a pressure cooker, I brown of the chicken then throw everything in together and pressure cook for 20mins. Same deal for a slow cooker.

    Ok so you have stock winter veggies there - I would make a bacon bone soup. So you just brown off the bacon bones and cover it all up with stock (or even just water as the bacon bones will produce a lovely stock) and let it cook away for hours.

    sorry, unless you're vegetarian in which case add stock only. Try adding onions and beans, barley, lemon, lentils.... And season.

    With veggies I would chuck a ham bone or bacon bones in a pkt of Italian soup mix (lentals) with a few liters of water.

    My favorites are

    beef and veg

    Diced beef (small)
    Carrots
    Zucchini
    Cabbage
    Squash if I have any
    1 potato.
    ( hubby likes pasta chucked in but I dont)

    Cook on stove top for 45 mind to a hour.


    Chicken and corn

    2 Chicken breast diced
    2 puts of 2 mins noodles
    2Tins of creamed corn
    2 liters of stock and 1 diced onion.
    In slow cooker for 8 hrs.

    Tips for tasty soup:

    - roast your vegies before blending
    -start by browning lots of garlic and spring onion in a pan, add to this your herbs, stock etc. use this as your base, it'll be so flavoursome.
    - if it's a thick, starchy soup, always garnish with either cream, sour cream or even Greek yoghurt, topped with more fresh herbs and black pepper.

    I think I will do this one (tomorrow now) as I have all the stuff for that, and it sounds yummy
