“A first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting.” –Abraham Maslow
I love soup! I look forward to cooler weather (my Minnesota friends are laughing right now) so that I can make soup, soup, soup! I actually make soup year round, although my husband does start to complain when the ambient temperature gets above 85 degrees or so.
What’s so great about soup? Well, it’s delicious of course. It’s also full of possibilities. I can’t think of another food item that can be as versatile or played around with more than soup. I have some great soup recipes, but quite honestly my favorite way to make it is something I call “Refrigerator Soup.” I love (read: LOVE) to poke around my fridge (or yours if you invite me over…) and chop up whatever I find, simmer it, add a broth and a bunch of other stuff and call it soup.
Click on my recipe page and check out my family’s recipe for lentil soup, which is already pictured there. This soup is easy and quick to make, and it’s possible to have all the ingredients on hand so you can whip it up whenever.
One suggestion: the recipe portions are small. Tiny. Miniscule. I never, ever, ever make small portions of anything I cook, especially soup. Soups more than anything else only get better after they’ve been cooked, frozen and then reheated. I recommend at least doubling this recipe or, if you’re a nut-job like me, quadruple it or even more.
