About: Amazing Soup Recipes
With all the changes in search engines we have decided to take a different approach with our niche soup sites and we are in the process of merging six different specialty soup sites in to an all-inclusive site. We have been bringing you delicious soup recipes for years and have concluded that bringing all these taste under one name and expanding our coverage with hundreds of new recipes planned would be the best way to serve our loyal visitors.
Discover not only classic favorites like French onion, chicken noodle and tomato soups, but also international ones from all over the globe, everything from thick and creamy bisques to chunky, meaty soups which are hearty enough for dinner, not just an appetizer. Soup is one of the first things we learn to make, just because it is economical, easy to master, and once you are used to making it you will be able to come up with your own recipes for it.
Almost all soups have a cream soup version of themselves whether this is an autumn time pumpkin soup or a favorite mushroom soup – there are so many choices…
These hardy soups were an old New England tradition using fresh ingredients that were on hand mixed with cream to give a full body flavor that filled you up.
Classic soups include soups that have stood the test of time whether that is a classic healing chicken noodle soup or a fresh garden vegetable soup.
Why Soup – There are Soup Recipes from all Over the World
So this May we are in the process of moving the content to our new site AmazingSoupRecipes and combining all six sites and creating new content too. The first move is to import (a manual process) into a WP install that is very light and we have crafted with the user in mind. The first site to be imported is still being decided as of this writing.
What I can tell you is this will be a fairly long process and as we add it here it will be redirected from the old site to this one so we don’t have any duplicate content issues. We will keep the redirects up for a period of time to give the new site time to index n to the search engines and also so things like Pinterest pins still work.
Some of the advantages to you as a user in the switch to a WordPress based site is the ability to leave us feedback and a better social interaction experience. We also streamlined the design of this site to be very easy to use and navigate plus less on page advertising to give you a cleaner look and feel to the site. We ask that you be patient with the transfer and hope you like the changes we have made with you in mind.
What is the Difference Between Stew, Soup, and Chowder?
There are so many different terms for foods. Sometimes it can be hard to tell one from the other. For example, how many of you had families who made stew that was more like soup? Not everyone makes a thick stew. So, what is the real difference?
The Story Behind Amazing Soup
With Soup, Anything is Possible
Everyone has their favorites – what soup comes to mind first when you are thinking about it? Perhaps a bowl of rich, sweet tomato, homemade chicken noodle or minestrone come to mind first, but it would be a mistake to limit yourself to these flavors. There are plenty of ingredients you can use, many of which will surprise you.
For example, beer and cheese can be combined in liquid form to make something you can eat out of a bowl with a spoon, rather than having a plate of cheese cubes washed down with a glass of beer. Beer and cheese soup might be difficult to picture in your mind’s eye if you have never tried or made such a dish, but it features on more and more restaurant menus because it works so well.
Another unusual one would be Kansas City steak soup which blends the big, robust flavors of ground sirloin steak, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and onion with aromatic ingredients like tomatoes, vegetables and a dash of steak sauce, for something rich, meaty and satisfying.
If you are hungry and you find ground beef, vegetables and other seasonings in the refrigerator, you might be considering a pasta dish, burgers or some kind of casserole, but soup is always a nice way to experience all the flavors, and if your vegetables are slightly beyond their prime, making soup is the way to disguise that. You can turn pretty much any ingredients into soup, and you will be surprised just how well all these recipes work, even the more unusual ones.
Add a sandwich and you have a complete meal. Choose from simple grilled cheese if you are serving tomato soup, a hot apple and cheese sandwich to go with sweet potato vichyssoise, or your personal favorite soup with your own favorite sandwich, for a rich, satisfying and tasty lunch that is going to keep you full until dinnertime.
A Great Way to Experience International Flavors
Something else to consider when making soup is putting some kind of international flair in there. Years ago people were only familiar with flavors from their own locales but because of globalization we can now taste flavors from every corner of the globe, and we have access to the ingredients needed to make such dishes.
The world is a melting pot of tastes and techniques these days, and a visit to the store to check out ingredients will yield exciting results, so whether you want to give your soup an Indian, Chinese, African, Spanish, or Mexican taste, or something else entirely, there is no reason why you cannot.
A pinch of curry powder and a splash of coconut milk will add an Asian flavor to a plain vegetable soup, while adding lime juice, cilantro and chipotle can add south of the border appeal. You can either make a plain soup and then add these seasonings, or make an international recipe from scratch.
Consider Moroccan chicken soup with cumin, raisins, apricots, and almonds, a Mexican pozole with tomatoes, chicken, chili, avocado, corn, and plenty of grated cheese on top, or how about Scottish cock-a-leekie, with its no-fuss chicken, vegetables, herbs, and barley blend?
Silky Smooth Bisque Ideas
Although chunky soups can be filling and hearty, there is also a place for bisques, and these are versatile enough to be an appetizer, snack or entrée, as you prefer.
If you have a blender, you can experiment with tasty bisques and enjoy their smooth-as-velvet texture, as well as all the ingredients which are pureed to blend them perfectly. In a chunky soup you get different flavors and ingredients in every spoonful, but bisque offers all the flavors in every one because everything is combined so perfectly.
If sipping and savoring sounds good to you, consider a carrot-parsnip soup with lemon juice and smoked paprika, a tomato and shiitake mushroom bisque with garlic, butter and cream to offer a luxurious finish, or even something more unusual like avocado bisque which blends avocado and broth with south of the border flavors like salsa, cream, cumin, garlic, and citrus juice.
Pretty much anything goes if you are in the mood for bisque. Your main ingredient might be a vegetable like carrots, pumpkin or cauliflower, or it might be some kind of seafood like shrimp, lobster or crab.
Blend in some cream and other seasonings like garlic, citrus and spices. The result is going to be harmonious and rich-tasting. Bisques are often served as an appetizer because they are rich and luxurious but perhaps better in a small bowl as an appetizer to whet the appetite before the entrée is presented. Bisques are just one facet in the world of soup, but a worthy one to consider.
