Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

I've got a pan of carrot and coriander soup ready for lunch. I plan to top it with crumbled crispy pancetta.

I made carrot and swede soup today, purely because both veg needed using.
Seasoned with s & P plus a shake of dried smoked garlic, blended with some Marigold.
It was surprisingly sweet, you would think it contained butternut.

I have looked in my local supermarkets. Like Amber I never seem to catch them in stock these days, so when I saw a whole shelf of them in Wing Yip it was Hallelujah! :D

Incidentally Charmaine Solomons points out that canned coconut milk is more concentrated than is easily made by hand, so look at recipes critically, and if you think the recipe is using home made, use the canned diluted with water. This makes a difference I find

Not here :( . Nor do asda, Morrison’s, etc etc. I’ve had to resort to buying full size cans - sometimes I freeze half, ususally it just gets wasted :( .

maybe the new soup thread could be merged with this one, rather than having to search through two for a recipe or idea?

Ah, I hadn't quite taken on board that there were two threads, Scully, I now realise I actually thought I had posted on this one :oops: :oops: Sorry!

i think i'm going to bounce this one to the top again and ask if the other can be added to this as it's going to be annoying having to search on both threads for an idea known to have been posted in the past.

Nigel Slater's carrot and tomato soup uses fresh tomatoes - it's that time of year, especially for those fortunate enough to grow them! Presumably a can of good Italian tomatoes would be an OK substitute? https://www.theguardian.com/food/2019/j ... -with-feta
Btw, do you peel your carrots for soup?
Edited to add I would certainly get fresh if/when I saw them at the market, but there's no guarantee that they'd be particularly flavourful.

I made a big pan of courgette, potato and green bean soup yesterday to use up garden excess. I used paprika spiced chicken stock and it has given it a lovely smokey flavour.
I do peel carrots for soup as I rarely buy organic ones and want to make sure any pesticide residue is removed.

I’ve just made a pea, potato, and lettuce soup, using my ‘gone to seed’ lettuces. It has hm chicken stock, a slug of dry sherry and a whirl of buttermilk in it, and it is very tasty.
like to cook, I have been really enjoying the Ayrshire potatoes this year, much better than the Jerseys. But was delighted to get our first local spuds yesterday.....Duke of Yorks...everyone up here gets very excited about the first ‘dukes’. It’s a short season though.

yesterday's (and this lunchtime's) soup was made with olive oil, sliced onion, sliced garlic, finely sliced carrots, chopped tomatoes (and puree), butter beans, basil, rosemary, a touch of chilli powder but not enough to really notice, a bit of vegitable stock powder and ground black pepper (plus some water of course) in that order of going in the pan not order of quantity.
good and hearty but not heavy.

Yesterday I made a cauliflower and blue cheese soup … Mainly to use up half a dish of cauliflower cheese I had made earlier in the week. It's boodly lovely :tu: :chef:

I made up a pint of stock using a veg stock cube and used that to cook off a chopped white onion and the same volume of chopped celery. I then added the leftover CCheese, and a tub of Saint Agur Blue Créme cheese . Blitzed it all together with the Bamix, and added just enough milk to make it more soup than sauce consistency. :chops: :chops: :chops:

the soup we had for lunch was the pumpkin chowder that's become a firm favourite of 'he who doesn't like pumpkin soup'.
(the recipe indicates that they used green peppers but i would say red are better).
(made with the blue/grey pumpkin/squash that has been stored in the outhouse since last winter).

it beats the rather boring curried pumpkin soup that was the fallback for using up pumpkin, doesn't it‽

Yes it does. Strange thing, flavour - I was instantly taken back to my mother's sheep's head broth -and that's well over 65 years ago. Totally different ingredients, but somehow the taste is very reminiscent. Thanks again.
