I'm actually looking forward to that type of recipe - my 'kitchen sink soups' always turn out to be BLAND. I apparently don't know how to season a plain old stock-based soup (hint, hint). cry2

Jenn - reminds me of something I saw on Bonnie Hunt show - Bonnie was showing products she thought they should come out with. One was "Campbells Cream of Leftovers" soup. :) Bonnie said her mom made that often when she was growing up.

FibreBabble how do you make your kitchen sink soup? What kind of stock do you use? I reckon between us all we can give you a hand into making tastier soups if we have an idea what you usually use in your soup etc.

I never ate any soup but heinze tomato, slowly I started to make my own soups once we moved back to a move civilized climate where it actually got cold in winter. I love thick hearty soups, chicken & vege, kitchen sink style ones and I love a roast potato and mushroom one I used to make, mmmmmmmmmmmm, its raining today, windy and dark grey, perfect soup day, hmmmmmmmm dont think I have a thing to put itno a pot of soup, sigh, its grocery shopping week

Fibrebabble....I find adding a can of tomotoes to the soup makes a big difference and potatoes (I guess the starch adds something). All of my soups have carrots in it as I always have them on hand. Also, I love different herbs so I usually add savoury, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, or whatever I come across in the spice cabinet. Hope that helps :)

FibberBabble , I like to sauté tomatoes paste a little when making my soups and some of the veggies too. Sounds like JennQT and I cook somewhat alike when it comes to soup, I love potatoes in them and savoury, oregano and thyme...yep...thyme, is good in most soups. I also cook my spices in a little olive oil and then put in all my other stuff!

Oh hungry here, getting near and near to dinner...oh shoot, it is only 3:47 I guess I have a couple of hours to go yet... cry2 all this wonderful talk about soup has my mouth watering...think I will take a sneek peek in the frig. :)

I always like to use celery in my soup and of course onion. I usually add potato to help thicken it and often add pumpkin. If mine is a tad bland I ususally add a little more chicken stock pwd which seems to round it out. I dont cook with salt but I add herbs and sometimes some spices like a dash of smokey paprika or some celery seed ground.

Thanks for all of the ideas :D It doesn't occur to me to put tomato products in with a chicken or beef stock (though now that I type that it might be interesting with beef). Celery would probably be very helpful. I'm an onion/garlic/black pepper kinda gal, though I do grow my own rosemary (YUMmmmmm) and oregano.

We are NOT spice weinies in this house! Fire it up!

I tend to avoid salt as much as possible, but I think that soup might have to be a little bit salty to taste like, well, anything. Undesided Gimpy, you mentioned chicken soup pwd and all I could think of was SALT - like a ground up boullion cube. Is it something else?

FiberBabble, I don't use much salt either, there are a few Vegan Veggie Bouillons Cubes out there that don't have salt in them Rapunzel makes one that is very good. They make a couple others types that use some Sea Salt. Another is Harvest Sun puts out a Low Sodium BC and neither have MSG in their recipe! I get migraine type of headaches form MSG So I really keep away from that stuff!!!

Thanks for the name brands, Schnookie. I don't "do" MSG either - gives me serious and almost instant muscle spasms and I'm "down" for two days minimum. TG Safeway has decent MSG-free Chinese food!

I'm really looking forward to seeing the recipe collection - I bet that I'll learn a lot!!

Howdee~

We have some excellent stock powders that come in little tins or tubs, don't seem as salty as stock cubes [boullion cubes] All things boullion or broth is called stock here.

I even put a tsp of vegie stock powder in my basil pesto or mashed potatoes. Season my spaghetti sauce with beef stock powder same with soups or stews too. Very "Nancy" about salt here, imported, rock or sea often in a grinder. I have boxes of pink Murray River Salt & iodized rock salt & a big container of the plain old stuff for baking.

My secret seasoning ingredient would have to be my Lea & Perrins, gawd help anyone who gets between me & my Lea & Perrins.

Had morning tea with my motelier mates, costs of staff in hospitality here top of conversation, remember tipping isn't big here! $20. per hour seemed going rate!

Successful day in the sorting, packing & removing stuff to the bush fire appeal auction. Tomorrow more boxes needed & more trips to the op-shop [charity 2nd hand shop] with toys etc. Now I have to sort the kitchen to make way for my Kitchenaide which has been on an old desk in a bedroom & now desk is gone. Will have to do the Teabury Shuffle to get things moved around to move it into my appliance graveyard. Might have to sneak some stuff into my neighbours recycling bin - our is filling with all my cooking suppliments & mags. cry2

Tracey the chicken soup pwd I mentioned, not sure what brand or name or what its called in the states, its simply the pkt of soup mix, powdered that you pour hot water into and can drink ( tigger ) guess maybe cup-a-soup? anyway I use the plain old chicken noodle and the french onion for seasoning in casseroles etc, you can get them low sodium etc here. Here is a another useless tidbit for your trivia filled mind - in australia salt has iodine added to it, australia doesnt have naturally occuring iodine in the soil so its added to a number of items including salt (iodised table salt) and milk. Lack of iodine in the diet causes goiters and cretinism.

MT glad to see you here, I was wondering where you got to and if you were ok. Sounds like you are busy busy busy.

Gimpy - We also buy iodized salt - though salt without iodine added to it is also available. There must be some reason for the non-iodized, but I don't know what it is. Certain health problems? Gourmet cooks?

Had to look this one up! A nd this is what I found.

Non – iodized salt is manly for pickling. The iodine and anti-caking additives turn pickles dark and the pickling liquid cloudy. you can use it as table salt but it may get lumpy if exposed to moisture.

Huh. Well you learn something new every day, eh?

GC, I just an hour ago was looking at the chicken soup/add water and eat stuff at our market. I was wondering if maybe... and it is! Now I know what it is - and for the Americans here, it's not cup-a-soup, it's in the same type of box (and in the same neighborhood as) Lipton onion soup mix - I'll try to pick some up when I'm in the big city <snerk>.

Schnookie, are you planning to have a separate "Beans" category? I'm off to look up a recipe for something that resembles Campbells Bean & Bacon soup as requested by Mr. W.

scratch Well that is a good question, I thought about it in the beginning and looked up what beans were classified as...some are casseroles and others are soups. In the case of Bean & Bacon soup, I would think it a soup. However, if it were baked beans I would think more of it being a casserole.

Does anyone want to chime in here? What do you think...

I have a couple of cookbooks where beans and rice are lumped into one category... in case I didn't stir the pot enough the first time...

FiberBabble, hum, beans and rice a nice side dish for sure. Maybe we need to change or re arrange the categories. Looking up Gumbo it is considered a soup or stew so we can just take that off the Category list and lump it in with soups and Stews same as Chowders. Now what else should we do here...Beans and Rice I think of Red Beans and Rice as in New Orleans style a traditional Monday meal in New Orleans , red beans are cooked with ham or sausage and seasonings, and served over rice.

Rename here: Beans, Rice and Stuffing's...now here it would be more like a side dish than a whole meal...versus in chili or soup style beans.

I think it a good thing to fine tune and update. So what else do you have in mind?

Aww, geez Schnookie I'm sorry! I had read that list before, but didn't realize that it was the 'official' categories. I don't want to rock the boat or complicate things! How 'bout forgetting I stirred anything. Sheesh. doh

Here's the copycat recipe I found for the bean and bacon soup (bonus!!!). It looks like I need to make a quick trip to town for an ingredient or two. I'll give a report after I've made it for Mr. W.

http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/365/Campbells_Bean_Bacon_Soup54670.shtml
Ingredients:
2 cups navy beans -- soaked overnight
6 strips crispy fried bacon -- minced
3 medium carrots -- minced
3 medium celery stalks -- minced
1 medium onion -- minced
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 cloves garlic -- minced
4 ounces tomato paste
1 dash red pepper flakes
6 cups water, more if needed
2 cups ham stock, if available -- decrease water
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
few drops liquid Barbecue Smoke® -- optional
salt and pepper -- to taste

Directions:

Soak beans overnight and discard water. Place all ingredients except wine vinegar, salt and pepper in a large kettle. Simmer until beans are tender (about 3 hours) .(substituting 1 or 2 cups of ham stock for 1 or 2 cups of water gives this soup an extra depth of flavor)

Puree 1 to 2 cups of soup and return to pot. Add wine vinegar and liquid smoke, mix well. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with hot cornbread and honey.

This recipe from CDKitchen for Campbell`s Bean & Bacon Soup serves 4

It's been so cold here lately, that a good soup recipe would come in mighty handy! I love simmering it all day on the stove or in the crock pot. The house always smells so good!
