Favorite soup

I know we've done this before but it's been a while.

What is your favorite soup? What do you like about it?

Right now mine is lobster bisque. Second to that is French onion. Third is that beer and cheese soup.

Obviously, I love cheesy, creamy soups with a lot of texture and a strong distinctive flavor.

    split pea soup! I just love the taste and texture.

    French onion soup
    Bread soups (Italian or Spanish styles are both good)
    Tonkotsu ramen, or really any ramen, but tonkotsu is just so satisfying
    Niu rou mian aka Taiwanese beef noodle soup
    Cantonese/Hong Kong bbq meat and wonton noodle soups
    Soupe au pistou
    Bean soups
    Lentil soups
    Tortilla soup
    Matzo ball soup and really any chicken soup with homemade noodles/dumplings

    Really I enjoy most soups and it's hard to pick; it depends on what type of food I happen to be craving. I love a cold soup in the summer (chilled corn broth is especially nice). I love Asian noodle soups, as can obviously be seen, but I also love a good smooth vegetable velouté.

    I also love cheesy creamy soups but my favorites are tum yum and coconut (thai).

    Chilayo (a beef stew with the bones with marrow, rice, red chiles... I believe guajillo, top with lime and you are in business!)
    Hearty potato cheese my dad makes
    Lobster Bisque (the best being from a restaurant I went to a CHristmas party at once)
    Lentil Soup my mom makes.

    French Onion or Creamy Tomato from Panera. I make a broccoli rabe, sausage and white bean soup that's good too.

    anything with bisque in the name

    My all time favorite soup is homemade chicken & vegetable, with or without noodles. It makes everything better. Aside from that:

    Minestrone (hold the sausage)
    Three bean
    Tomato bisque, tomato vegetable, creamy tomato, etc
    Broccoli & Cheese
    My brothers egg drop soup
    Vegetable soup

    Basically any and every soup aside from ones containing seafood, french onion (I just can't) and sweet & sour. It is one of my favorite meals, and I am having (tomato) soup for lunch right now.

    There are so many, it is hard to pick.

    that being said i do have a new one - menudo although the texture of the posole takes some getting used to.

    Menudo is usually just tripe (and other bits). Having hominy in it is not typical.:dontknow:
  • webjockeywebjockey Posts: 2,786Registered Users
    The times I've had it in Austin they put hominy in it.

    Maybe it's a Tex-Mex thing?

    French onion and a tomato basil bisque I've been making lately. Shrimp or lobster or mushroom bisques too. I am a huge soup fan though...any kind...I could eat it every day.
  • moodydovemoodydove Posts: 1,721Registered Users
    Pumpkin, french onion (no cheese), and lobster bisque. Ukrainian cabbage soup and tom kha gai are really good too.

    1-Homemade Broccoli Cheese (We put in carrots, leave bigger pieces of broccoli and cauliflower. I love me a soup with some substance)
    2-Homemade Chicken/Turkey Noodle Soup (Broth is made by boiling the carcass of the chicken/turkey with onions, celery and carrots, then blend the cooked vegetables with the broth and strain it through a large strainer so it's a really thick broth. Then we make homemade noodles. YUM!)
    3-My Dad's "Throw Together Soup" (He usually starts with a tomatoey base, then adds whatever is in the refrigerator that would be okay in a soup like steamed broccoli, cauliflower, beans, hamburger that's been in the fridge so long it has to be cooked or thrown out, then will start chucking in noodles or rice or lentils if he feels like it. Oh, yeah...the standard celery, carrots and potatoes are in there, too. Only problem is we can't ever replicate it!)

    A good veggie broth with some alphabet pasta is pure comfort for me.

    A lot of the ones listed! Really anything made off of my broth base of veggie plus maybe chicken. Matzoh ball especially, and usually that includes chicken meat, too. I'll make turkey soup after this week, I'm sure. I made veggie soup for tomorrow's meal.

    The only non-homemade soup I love it Lipton Chicken Noodle. Reminds me of being a kid. Also tastes great when I have a cold or just don't feel good.

    Homemade - chili, cream of mushroom, ham and potato, ham and bean, oyster stew,

    --Cambodian hot pot, maybe it's more of a stew really but heck, it's the bomb regardless. My friend's cousin made some pho in the biggest pot I've ever seen; it took up several of the stove burners and had fish balls in it. Soooooo good....

    --"garden soup" my mom used to make; we had HUGEEEE gardens when I was coming up, it seemed like one minute we were shelling, picking and husking for our lives and the next minute she was spooning out bowls of veggie soup with bits of beef, chicken or turkey in it. It was tomato-based but more stew-y vs. soupy. Sooooo good. Esp the little lima beans. Or if she put big chunks of beef in. She'd take random jars of the veggies and just throw them all in the soup pot.

    I had no lunch today, sigh
