It seems the "SOUP" Forum is quite neglected.
It must be lonely with all the other action going on in the other forums.

Just wanted to make you smile.

I dont have anything to add to it either.
Just wanted it to feel better.

Well, I wouldn't want this section to go without a good recipe, so here's one I got from the estimable Rachael Ray and modified for my own use:

Sausage, Bean and Broccoli Rabe Soup

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound Italian bulk sweet sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 large potato, peeled and chopped into small dice
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cans cannelini beans, drained
Salt and pepper
4 cups chopped broccoli rabe and greens
2 quarts chicken stock
Ditalini or other small pasta shape
Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, to pass at the table

Heat medium soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and sausage and brown. Add vegetables and beans. Season with salt and pepper. Cook mixture 5 minutes to begin to soften the vegetables. Meanwhile, cook ditalini until al dente and drain. Add rabe and wilt. Add stock and cover pot. Raise heat and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 10 minutes, then add cooked ditalini and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Adjust seasonings and serve the soup with the grated cheese for topping.

A really good, crusty bread is perfect with this soup.

By the way, this is even better the next day.

Today's my soup day. Had the salad and soup at Olive Garden at lunch (yeah, I know it's a chain, but their soup and salad isn't bad). Tonight is more salad (but a much better one) and I'm making some onion soup to go with it.

Out of boredom, I check the following site everyday to see what soups they'll be serving: http://deansdogs.com/index.php Too bad they're hundreds and hundreds of miles away from here..

Instead of a recipe, I'll share a book that was published this year. The recipes, stories, and tales of an Austin institution, The Soup Peddler. Got his start selling and delivering his awesome soups on his bicycle, thus his name...

Hello All,
Roosy90, you did good. I've notice the lack of
activity in SOUP, and wished I could find something here.
I don't think Americans appreciate soup unless they are sick.
Maybe we have been Campbellized.
Thanks Roosy90.
Take Care,

p.s. is there a Christmas soup...a New Years' soup, any holiday soups?

Holiday Soups? Hmmmm. New Year's Day: serve cabbage soup, pork in any form and blackeyed peas. Cabbage brings money and peas bring luck. (Pork just because it's so good)

Soup rocks! It's my most favorite food to make. Broccoli cheddar, potage DuBarry, wedding, Italian lentil, minestrone, cream of wild mushroom, onion, potato leek, ham and bean, pistou, crab bisque, lobster bisque, black bean, seafood chowder, fish chowder, clam chowder, fish soup and don't forget gumbo! Geeze, the list is endless! But we always have a batch of homemade soup in the fridge. Our version of "fast food"......microwave and eat!

I LOVE cabbage soup, but just finished reading the cabbage soup diet, and one can only eat so much cabbage.. But still love it!
Mostly with fresh veggies and chicken, and a squeeze of lemon!
Needless to say, I didnt stay on the diet, but am going to try again, but reading and posting here doesnt help my diet!

My wife's family New Years tradition is lentil soup with cut up hot dogs and spattezzle (sp?) in it. She's German, and I don't know how she never heard of Pork & Kraut for New Year's...

My Mother also makes lentil soup for New Year's Day. But uses a kielbasa or german sausage instead of hot dog.

Supposedly, the more lentils you eat, the weathier you'll be over the coming year.

I don't know about specific holiday soups, but I never throw away a turkey carcass without making soup from it first. And the bone from that holiday ham flavors beans like nobody's business!

I made split pea w/ my turkey stock. The turkey was brined and grilled, so I got the smokey flavor too.

Today its a toss-up more split pea (got some locally smoked ham hocks in the freeze), or chicken pot pie with cream biscuit crust (got a left over chicken carcass in the fridge).

Try again.

I was always told that beans, beans are good for your heart.

Friends of mine always make one for Christmas they call (and I am going to totally mangle it) kartoffel soup. Another friend found that name to be very Seussian and thought she'd wandered into Whoville. Nice stuff, very much a thick potato soup, probably Germanic in origin.

I made some very nice soups out of my Christmas dinner leftovers, one from acorn squash, the other from brussels sprouts, the recipe for which I pulled from an English food site (to reference another thread here).
