I made this soup last night and it is sooooo yummy! I am so glad I took a chance with this.

Cream of Celery Soup with Blue Cheese

4 tablespoons butter
1 head celery, chopped (include the leaves!)
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 large carrots diced
2 cups chicken stock (or veggie stock)
1/2 cup white wine (or can use apple juice or white grape juice)
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste)
salt, if needed, to taste
3/4 cup heavy cream (or half and half or light cream or 1 can reduced fat evaporated milk
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese

Dice veggies and saute over low heat until veggies are soft and they release liquid. Add stock, wine and spices. Simmer for 30 minutes. Place veggies is blender to emulsify. Return to pot. And cream and cheese and cook until cheese is melted. Adjust seasonings.

What is your favorite soup? Please share

Does the first recipe taste like blue cheese, or does it get mixed in with the other flavours? I find blue cheese to be *cough* not my thing, but I would add it to a recipe if I couldn't taste is at all.

This is quick & easy!

1 clove garlic, minced
4 to 6 cups broth, chicken or vegetable
1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (9-ounce) package fresh tortellini or 4 servings dried tortellini (I used a whole 16oz pkge)
Coarse grained salt and cracked black pepper
10 ounces fresh spinach
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, very loosely packed

Directions

In a 3-quart soup pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Saute the onion and garlic, stirring often until onions are translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add broth and tomatoes, turn heat up to high, and bring to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook according to package instructions. When tortellini is almost done, add spinach and taste, adjusting seasonings with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Garnish each serving with a sprinkling of Parmesan.

This is ds6's favorite: fish soup

1 pkg frozen fish medley
1 pkg diced clams
1 bottle fish juice
2 or 3 packets of goya type chicken consume packeta
3/4 stick of butter (not margarine)
1 diced garlic clove
1/2 cup of milk

Put the frozen fish in a pan.
Add all liquids and cook on low/med heat.
Add butter and garlic
When fish thaws and butter melts add consume

The liquid should be just above the fish. If not you can add a bit more milk or water.

Ds hates cilantro. Spouse loves it. Your call.

Adjust seasonings (more consumer, garlic or butter) to your taste.

I am pretty sure I got this recipe here on SI, but I neglected to put the user's name with the recipe, so I can't give credit where credit is due. I fry the bacon in the bottom of the dutch oven, and usually double the recipe.


Potato Soup

Fry some bacon until it crisps. Set aside bacon, but leave grease in the pan.
Peel 5-6 medium sized potatoes, and cut into bite-sized pieces.
Saute in pan with bacon grease, with chopped celery, onion and carrots. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
Transfer to stock pot if a frying pan was used for the bacon.
Add 1 cup chicken stock.
Take 2 cups of milk, add 2 Tablespoons of seasoned flour, and whisk together.
Pour into pot with other ingredients, and bring to a boil.
Cook until potatoes are tender.
Serve with shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon.

Black Bean Soup

2 TBsp olive oil
1 med onion, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 TBsp cumin (I usually add a bit more)
3 cans black beans
1 can diced tomatoes or Rotel
Chicken or vegetable stock
Salt and pepper

Saute onion in the olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and cumin and stir while garlic cooks a bit.

Add one can UNDRAINED black beans. In the pot, mash them. Add the other 2 cans of black beans, DRAINED. (I usually add 2 cans UNDRAINED and mash, then one can drained, because that's the consistency I prefer)

Add diced tomatoes/Rotel, salt and pepper, and enough chicken stock (or vegetable stock) to get to the consistency you prefer.

Cook about 30 minutes.

Top with nothing or any combination of pico, sour cream, cilantro, crushed tortilla chips, cheese.

Addendum:

I just made this soup with turkey breast instead of ground beef.
It's simmering on the stove!
