Re: Christmas time soup ideas 🥣

@Mi-Amigo That's my traditional way of making soup too, although I'm now trying to get used to some additional cooking options/skills. I know how to make cabbage soup actually but it's such a specific kind of taste that it's not something I want to make often! Now that we're getting into the colder season it does sound good though. Smiley Happy

I also like mushroom soup by the way - cream of mushroom! mushroom

 

@liggerz87 I can totally imagine that! sweat smile see no evil

What's your favourite soup? Smiley Happy

 

@Cleoriff I like leek and potato soup with some seeded bread! Like what @Mi-Amigo said, it's been ages since I had it too. Always from a can and microwaved but it must be delicious home-made. Same with stilton and broccoli @MI5 ! It's strange as I really don't like that type of cheese, but in this soup it's amazing. ðŸ¤¤

 

@JAZZ-trad Celery soup stood out from your list! How is that made - is there only celery in it? 

 

@Anonymous I tried to think back but I don't think I've ever tasted oxtail soup as far as I remember! Smiley Surprised

Hi @Marjo 
I think there is potato in the celery soup but it's not noticeable as the main taste is definitely celery.

Re: Christmas time soup ideas 🥣

@WispaRed7 Oh yes pea & ham soup from your list, one of my all-time favourites since I was a child. Smiley Happy In Finland (what about here in the UK?) we sometimes put mustard in it. Smiley Very Happy I've also chopped small pieces of onion and mixed them in the soup when heating it up.

 

After Christmas, my mum used to make ham & pea soup from scratch, using the leftover ham from the Christmas meals. (we had ham instead of turkey) It was delicious!

 

So there seems to be two soups I haven't tried so far: celery soup and oxtail soup! Cheers for the ideas. And according to many of you, it will be great with some crusty bread of course! smiling

Re: Christmas time soup ideas 🥣

Thanks @JAZZ-trad for mentioning celery soup, which I hadn`t heard of before. I do like celery in a salad in the summer, so I`ll add it to my shopping list and ask my carer if she can track it down. If she`s successful and after I`ve tried it, I`ll let evryone know what I think.

Hi @Mi-Amigo
I hope you enjoy it. It makes a nice change. Look forward to hearing about it later.
