Whatever I have just made, usually from leftovers in the fridge. At the moment I have a surfeit of celery, but I over salted the last batch (for my taste anyway) so am loathe to make it again :( :sprout: I like my soups to be smooth, not chunky. Butternut Squash always turns out well. :tu:

:lol: :lol: I have just tried going back to soap in order to save on plastic bottles. I hate it, it is only good for keeping in clothes drawers to smell nice.

We have a good thread already going somewhere re soup. I like soup but the first leek and potato in late autumn is always special.

At the moment it is things like asparagus, carrot and coriander or still French onion before the weather gets too hot when I switch to cold soups

Made a few batches of sweet potato recently, roasted together with onion and garlic, which is delicious!

But I agree with Patsy that it's usually

Welcome wargarden :D . If my soups are blended , I like them very thick with a bit of texture still. I love any spicy root veg soup , sometimes with lentils too. I made carrot and coriander once and it was gorgeous, think maybe a Nigel Slater recipe.

Proper roasted tomato soup is good too, with garlic and. chilli . I can't actually remember the last time I made soup

Lunch today was a Broccoli & Stilton soup ... one onion chopped and softened; I added a large handful of chopped cooked purple sprouting broccoli left over from yesterday’s roast dinner and some vegetable stock made with Marigold bouillon powder and let it simmer for ten minutes. Then I added a small wedge of Stilton and blended ( keeping a bit of texture) and stirred in a tablespoon of creme fraiche .... voila ... lunch was ready :chops:

There’s enough left for my lunch tomorrow too :D

As I mentioned on Chatterbox, Suffs, that sounds wonderful. One of my all-time favorites... :chops:

I'd travel a fair old way for pea & ham soup too. :hungry:

sorry for misspelling auto-correct caused it.
my favorite soup is clam or fish chowder when comes to thick cream soups
chicken soup also but that can be complicated since there are so many variations.

Oooh yes I love chowders and make them quite often I also love Sothern French fish soup with croutons, garlic, rouille and cheese but it is so complicated to make that I buy it from the local fish stall or from the traiteur in town, who makes a quite exceptional one. :drool:

I love chowder too, and cullen skink :chops:

It's a shame because Mr S isn't keen so I rarely make it even though I have some splendid recipes. I have one for a mussel chowder that's to die for.

Today I made a butternut squash and sage soup using a stock made from boiling a ham bone with herbs and aromatics.
