  • Soupalooza: Hot and sour soup cures what ails you Feb 25, 2013 4:41 PM
    Hot and Sour Soup is the Asian version of chicken noodle soup — the antidote to all that ails you. While that may seem like just another folk tale, there is evidence that hot and sour soup is really good for you. The lightly cooked vegetables offer fiber, vitamins and minerals, but that's just the start.

    Can the gunk collected from the bottom of beer barrels set you straight after a night of too much of said beer, or wine or spirits? According to M. Eileen Brown Marmite, that yeasty paste, adds the right balance of nutrients to green bean soup and provides a delicious hangover cure.

     
  • Chocolate adds depth to tortilla soup Nov 27, 2012 11:57 AM
    Chocolate in soup? Don't write off the idea before you hear what M. Eileen Brown has to say about one of Paula Deen's recipes that evokes shrimp enchiladas in rich mole sauce.

     
  • Roasting the key to easy squash soup Oct 30, 2012 11:10 AM
    Forget trying to hack away at a hard-shelled squash when you want soup. M. Eileen Brown found an easier way. "I have decided that cooking them whole (or cut in big chunks) is the best way to go about it. If the squash fits into my oven rack, I simply poke holes using a narrow knife or an ice pick, place it on a baking sheet lined in tin foil and roast it at 375 degrees until it starts to soften and collapse."

     
  • Soupalooza: Produce freshness influences soup flavors Sep 26, 2012 11:42 AM
    Here's my question for you, fellow soup savants: Why is it when you remake a tried-and-true recipe, the results can turn out so differently? I know. I know. We soup lovers like to make soup because, well, because it's a little more free flowing than, say, baking puff pastry.

  • Vichyssoise a summer pleaser, n'est pas? Jun 26, 2012 1:22 PM
    Vichyssoise is my new favorite summertime soup. (Goodbye, gazpacho. It was nice while it lasted.) Who would have thought cold potato soup could be so delightful? Its cold, creamy potato-y-ness is like a savory milkshake, and I mean that in the best possible way.

     
  • Learning new soup-making tips May 29, 2012 11:54 AM
    No matter how much time I spend over a hot stock pot, I'm always open to learning a new soup technique or two. I love taking cooking classes because I almost always walk out with a new trick up my sleeve. I recently took a class on vegan Italian cuisine and picked up a recipes for Tuscan Bean Soup with kale.

     
  • Soupalooza: Asparagus soup embodies spring Apr 24, 2012 1:48 PM
    There are plenty of lovely (and easy) recipes for cream of asparagus soup, but I found the results to be more about the cream and less about the asparagus. I landed on a blended soup made with asparagus, potatoes, onions, celery and garlic, a recipe that is a bit lighter and a lot healthier.

     
  • Soupalooza: When to make that extra effort Mar 26, 2012 11:26 AM
    How many times have you decided to go ahead with a recipe, only to skip that little something that seems extravagant or unnecessary? After all, soup, for the most part, is carefree. Who has time to whip up a little oregano cream or gremolata on a weeknight?

     
  • Hambone-less split pea soup still satisfies Feb 28, 2012 6:16 AM
    When I became a vegetarian 25 years ago, I gave up certain favorite foods including pepperoni pizza, bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches and, alas split pea soup. While I am perfectly happy with cheese pizza, who wants to eat a tomato and lettuce sandwich? And, really, what's split pea soup without a hambone simmering in it?
