This week, I was inspired by some soup-related stories that I read about online. As I am gearing up to create some new soups this fall it is always interesting to read some new recipes as well as learn about some soupy-related causes. Here are some of this weeks top reads:
1. ‘Design and Make a Soup’ competition. This is by far my favorite soup-related story this week. A group of 200 kids from the Forfar Academy in the U.K. recently competed in a soup-making competition where the best soup would be featured in the Murton Nature Reserves’ Tearoom. Unable to pick just one soup, the judge picked three winning soup recipes – Celery and Stilton, Three Bean, Thai Green Chilli – that will all be placed on the Tearoom’s menu.
2. Cajun Minestrone Soup Recipe. I have been in a soup-making funk, which is partly because of the summer months. Now that the weather is getting cooler I really want to get back to making new soups as well as test out some recipes that I have yet to try like this Cajun Minestrone Soup by Eliza Domestica. This unique soup features a delicious combination of ingredients like chicken, andouille chicken sausage (hence the “Cajun” part), kale, white beans, and orzo pasta – making the perfect comforting bowl of soup to test out the fall.
3. Winter Pumpkins and Squash Make Delicious Soup. Yes, that is true and butternut squash is near and dear to my heart since it was also the first soup I made on Seriously Soupy. The article describes the orange Hokkaido, Delicata and Blue Hubbard squash that can be easily “cooked, pureed and simmered into a delectable soup” with the Hokkaidos being the highest-recommended thanks to their “creamy texture, and a not-too-sweet chestnut flavor.” The article also comes with an easy recipe for a Winter Squash Soup.
