Anyone have any ideas for soups? I make the same old recipes. Split pea, bean, and chili....we are getting bored with these soups we need new ideas.

My favourite is Mulligatawny Soup I on

In a nutshell, you saute chopped onions, carrot and celery in a good amt of butter, add 1.5 tbsp flour, and some seasonings like oregano and thyme and 1 tbsp curry powder, stir for a few minutes, add one litre box of chicken broth and simmer for 30 mins until veggies are tender, add chopped chicken thighs or breast and 1/2 a chopped apple and a handful basmati rice (you can omit if you want), cook until rice and chicken are cooked. It is SOOOO yummy! I make this at least once a week.

Potatoe and Leek soup is great. Take a couple of leeks and garlic and simmer in a pot of water for a few hours till it is reduced by half (makes a wonderful stock) than add cubed potatoes and chicken stock, cook till potatoes start becoming soft than add cooked bacon and carrots, simmer till carrots are cooked, then mash some of the potatoes up a bit but leave some of them whole, than add heavy cream (although I have made it without the cream and it is still very good). Cook for a few more minutes. I have made this a number of times now and it is always a big hit.

Hey everyone, I try new things all the time with food. As far as soup goes, I have a personal favorite. Its a veggie/chicken combo. You take cubed, thawed chicken and with a tablespoon of butter, dash of salt, and ground pepper, cook it together until chicken is white all the way through. Then you add a can of potatos, green beans, whole corn, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, black-eyed peas, butter beans, great northern beans, pinto beans, a little bit of oregano leaves, lemon pepper seasoning, garlic/parlsey blend seasoning, worchestershire pepper, Mrs. Dash's steak grilling blends, milk, butter, and cream of chicken at the end. After everything is added, let simmer together for about 20 minutes. It is so delicious, and I think it will be a hit with any family.
