RECIPES WITH VEGETABLES:
Homemade Soup Recipes: Courgette Soup
This is an
elegant little homemade soup, easy
and not as quick
of the other soup and starter recipes you will find here, but well
worth the extra effort. A truly wonderful color and the taste is
600 g young courgettes, sliced in
12,5 ml melted butter
12,5 ml oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 rashers of bacon left whole
Top and tail the courgettes. Melt the butter and oil in a
large pot. Sweat the chopped onion and the bacon. When soft, add the
sliced courgettes. Saute gently for 5 minutes.
750 ml seasoned chicken stock
250 ml milk
2 ml onion salt (ordinary will do)
5 ml sugar
2 ml mild mustard
Simmer, half-covered, about 15 min or
till soft. Remove from stove, and remove the bacon.
125 ml skimmed milk powder. Liquidize
till smooth. Either reheat gently and serve, or chill thoroughly. Add
chopped chives and a teaspoon of thick cream if you are not watching
1 1/2 pounds cauliflower flowerettes (one and a half pounds)
1 pounds carrots, peeled and sliced
1 onion, chopped
4 - 5 cups vegetable stock
6 slices French Baguette
1 1/2 cups grated cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a large soup pot
over a medium heat. Add onion and cook gently until transparent. Add
the rest of the vegetables. Saute for a few minutes taking care not to
burn the onions. Add the stock. Bring to boil and then reduce to low
and cook for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add more stock
if soup is too thick. Adjust final seasoning with salt and pepper. Pour
into individual bowls that are oven-proof. Place a slice or two of
French baguette onto the soup and cover slices with cheese. Grill for
several minutes until cheese melts. Serve.

RECIPES WITH CHICKEN
Easy, Homemade Soup Recipes: Easy
Cut up any vegetables of your choice such as leeks, onions,
celery, carrots, courgettes and any left over cooked vegetables you may
have in your fridge. I usually use the vegetables from the previous
night's roast chicken dinner.
Lightly fry all the vegetables in a little butter for a minute
or two. Place in a large pot. Add the chicken carcass from the previous
night's roast. Fill up the pot to the top of the carcass. Add a little
more water if you wish. Add 3 chicken stock cubes, chunks of pumpkin
and a grated potato.
In my opinion, which was also stated by my great-grandmother,
you cannot make a good pot of chicken soup without the pumpkin. And
Boil gently for an hour and a half. Serve with crusty bread.
Easy, Homemade Soup Recipes:
Cream of Chicken Soup(4)
Simmer 4 cups of chicken stock, 1/2 cups chopped celery and 1

of cooked long-grain rice.
Take off the heat. Liquidize.
Add 1/2 cup hot cream, 1 tablespoon chopped parsley.
Season to taste. Thin out with more hot cream if necessary and
RECIPES WITH POTATOES
Easy, Homemade Soup Recipes:
Peel and slice 2 medium potatoes
Skin and chop 2 medium onions, and 4 ribs of celery
