MY husband's grandmother used to make this soup with her own homemade sausage and homemade tortellini. Since it has been passed down, we don’t “hand make” those ingredients but it’s almost as good as hers. It’s a great way to get the kids to eat spinach!
This soup is so simple to put together with ingredients you might keep on hand, and it’s delicious, too. The broth with potato, meat and vegetables makes it so satisfying. —Gail Wilkerson, House Springs, Missouri
Relish autumn’s color and flavors right in your bowl with this creamy, golden soup from Spearville, Kansas field editor Pat Habiger. Just blend the ingredients and chill overnight. “For a treat, serve in hollowed-out small pumpkins,” suggests Pat.
Loellen Holley needs just a few canned goods to stir up this comforting microwave mixture. “I call this ‘throw-together soup‘,“ says the Topock, Arizona cook. “Serve it with a green salad and hot bread or rolls,“ she suggests. “You can also simmer this soup in a slow cooker.“
Robyn Larabee’s bright and creamy carrot soup is her young son’s very favorite. “He requests it often,” she writes from Lucknow, Ontario. “I like that it’s fast, easy and makes a perfect amount for the two of us when my husband is away at work.”
WE were tired of the same old vegetable soup and I had on hand some fish that needed to be cooked, so this was the creation of our favorite fish chowder. Occasionally, I enhance it still further by adding another vegetable, such as corn or peas, to add to color and nutrition.
