I always wondered what the soup nazi's jambalaya recipe was. Was it soup? Just jambalaya?

re: Post your favorite soup recipe
I just made this one yesterday:

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
INGREDIENTS:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
4 cups good-quality chicken stock
2 (14-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with juice
1 (15-ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
4 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 dried pasilla (negro) chile peppers*
1 white onion, peeled and diced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt, or more/less to taste
fresh lime wedges
optional garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, diced avocado, diced red onion, shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla strips/chips
DIRECTIONS:

Add all ingredients to a slow cooker, and stir to combine. Cook for 3-4 hours on high heat or 6-8 hours on low heat, until the chicken is cooked through and shreds easily. Use two forks to shred the chicken. Remove the pasilla chile(s), and discard.
Serve warm with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and topped with optional garnishes if desired.


*If you can't find pasilla/negro chiles at the store, you can substitute in 1 ancho chile instead (which is a bit sweeter) or 1 Mulatto chile (which is a little earthier) or 2 teaspoons chile powder (feel free to add more/less to taste). I found ancho chile powder at the grocery and put in 1 teaspoon of that. You could probably add more, but I wanted to be on the safe side since I had never made this meal.

re: Post your favorite soup recipe
Bump and I have a new soup to add.

I made Jacques Pepin's Parisian Potage (fancy name for leek and potato soup) over the weekend. This soup is very very simple and doesn't need a bunch of extra flavors.

I used Kitchen Basics stock, but I cooked about 10 wings that I cut into pieces at the joints and simmered those in it with a carrot, celery end, onion and some parsley stems. Strained that and defatted it. Kitchen Basics will make it a bit darker in color than a broth color.

I probably used more leeks than it called for. I love leeks and these were not particularly fat leeks. Can't have too many in my opinion.

I served cups before dinner last night to about 10 people who really loved it on a cold and rainy night. I added fresh grated gruyere to the top of each cup which was terrific with it.


Parisian Potage

Serves 4

1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large leek, damaged outer leaves discarded, split, washed, and finely minced (3 cups)
1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and held in cold water
4 cups (1 quart) homemade chicken stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth (Kitchen Basics plus chicken wings, carrot, celery, parsley stems and onion simmered and then strained)
1 cup water (I didn't use this)
1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste (needed a bit more)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or chervil-I used parsley on top of each serving. Chives would also work.
1/2 cup grated Gruyère cheese or a dollop of softened unsalted butter (optional)-I used gruyere sprinkled on top of each serving.

Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan. Add the leeks and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cut the potatoes into sticks about 3/4-inch thick and slice the sticks crosswise into 1/8-inch slivers (you will have about 3 cups). The potatoes should be kept in water after peeling, but they should not be washed after they are cut into slivers; this would wash away their starch, which helps make the soup smooth.

Add the stock, water, salt, and pepper to the leeks, then mix in the potato slivers. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and boil gently for about 12 minutes.

Serve the soup with a sprinkling of the parsley or chervil on top and, if you like, the grated cheese or a dollop of butter.

Already posted in a different thread, but will add here as well:

2 cups cooked chickpeas (2 cans, or cook 1/2 pound dried)
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
Olive oil, for sauteeing
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp crumbled saffron, or more, if you like
6 cups vegetable stock or water or combo
1/4 cp chopped parsley

1. Coarsely chop the almonds. Set aside.
2. Heat olive oil in large soup pot. Sautee onions and garlic with a large pinch of salt and ground black pepper. Cook until onions start to brown, stirring occasionally throughout. Stir in almonds and saffron.
3. Add stock or water and chickpeas. Mash chickpeas to desired consistency with a potato masher or back of a spoon. Gently heat, stirring occasionally until hot. Taste, and adjust seasoning.
4. Serve garnished with parsley.

We pass with Manchego for shredding at the table, too.

Sweet Potato and Andouille Soup
Recipe from Emeril. LINK

INGREDIENTS
3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 1/4 pounds sweet potatoes
1/2 pound bulk andouille sausage, crumbled, or pulsed in food processor if link sausage
1 cup julienned onions
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 quart chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

I microwave the sweet potatoes, but the recipe calls for baking them. Sometimes, we skip the heavy cream and it is still a very tasty soup.

Coat the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon of the oil and place in a small baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven and roast the sweet potatoes for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until the potatoes are fully roasted and fork tender. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, remove and discard the skin from the potatoes. Reserve the sweet potato flesh until ready to use.

Heat a 1 gallon stockpot over medium-high heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the andouille to the pot and saute until most of the fat has rendered and the meat is well caramelized, stirring constantly, 5 to 6 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the andouille and drain on a paper-lined plate. Set aside until ready to use. Add the onions and saute until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the cayenne pepper and chicken stock to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer.

Add the roasted sweet potatoes to the soup and stir to blend. Simmer for 10 minutes, then blend with an immersion blender or in batches in a bar blender until smooth. Return the soup to the pot, if necessary, and stir in the heavy cream. Season with the salt and if necessary more pepper. Garnish with the cooked andouille, chopped chives and serve.

We shred some manchego cheese in as well at the table which sets it off. It's a really unique, interesting flavor with the almonds and saffron and the almonds also give it a unique texture. Even better the next day after flavors set a while (what soup isn't?).

re: Post your favorite soup recipe
Posted by Twenty 49:

I've made a tomato soup recipe from Serious Eats a couple of times, and it is really good. Simple too.

The recipe as written is vegan, but I use chicken stock (Better than Bullion) rather than water.

I also cook it longer than 5 minutes. Like to let it simmer 30 or so to get out any raw or canned taste. May be a waste of time, but I do it.

With 2 28 oz. cans of tomatoes, this makes a ton. It took me 3 runs to get it all through the blender last time.

Kenji’s 15-Minute Creamy Tomato Soup (Vegan)
LINK

Ingredients

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, grated on a microplane grater
1 small onion, finely sliced (about 1 cup)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 slices white bread, crusts removed, torn into rough 1/2-inch pieces
2 (28-ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes packed in juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Minced chives, basil, or parsley as garnish
Toasted bread or grilled cheese for serving

Directions

1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat until shimmering. Add garlic, onions, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently until onions are softened but not browned, about 4 minutes. Add bread and tomatoes. Roughly mash tomatoes with a whisk or a potato masher. Add 2 cups water (or chicken stock for non-vegan). Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes (or longer to suit you).

2. Transfer half of soup to the jar of a blender. Blend soup, starting at low speed and gradually increasing to high (be careful starting up, it can shoot out the top of the blender—open the vent and hold a kitchen towel over the lid to prevent blowout). With blender running on high, gradually trickle in half of remaining olive oil. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat with remaining half of soup and olive oil. Ladle into individual serving bowls, top with minced herbs, drizzle with more olive oil, and serve with toast or grilled cheese.
