    This is a good winter soup.

    Wintergold Stew

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    1 onion, peeled and diced

    2 stalks celery, chopped

    1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

    4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

    6 cups water

    2 cups diced peeled butternut squash

    2 cups diced peeled rutabagas

    3 teaspoons crushed dried oregano

    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika

    1 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

    2 cups chopped kale

    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

    Heat oil in a large saucepan oil. Add the onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic, and sauté for about 5 minutes.

    Add water, squash, rutabaga, oregano, paprika and salt; bring to a simmer. Cook for 40 to 45 minutes over medium-low heat until the rutabaga is tender, stirring occasionally.

    Stir in the kale and cook for about 10 minutes more.

    To thicken, mash the squash and rutabaga against the side of the pan with the back of a spoon. Stir in the parsley and let stew stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

    Here is another one that my family really enjoys

    Corn Chowder

    2 tablespoons butter

    Extra-virgin olive oil

    1 onion, diced

    2 garlic cloves, minced

    6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only

    1/4 cup all-purpose flour

    6 cups canned vegetable stock

    2 cups heavy cream

    2 Idaho potatoes, peeled and diced

    6 ears corn

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

    Heat the butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and thyme and cook until the vegetables are good and soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Dust the vegetables with flour and stir to coat everything well. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Add the cream and the potatoes, bring to a boil and boil hard for about 7 minutes, until the potatoes break down (this will help to thicken the soup and give it a good texture).

    Cut the corn kernels off the cob and add to the soup. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until the corn is soft, about 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the parsley and give it another little drink of olive oil. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.

    Hope you like these.

    My favorite is my own version of Hamburger Stew

    I peel and quarter about 6 medium sized potatoes, cook until almost done. In a skillet I fry up some lean hamburger with onion (drain). Add the meat mixture to the potatoes, add two cans of Veg-All large cut vegetables, one can of corn, one can of tomatoes, two cans of tomato sauce, salt, pepper, garlic salt and let that mixture simmer for an hour. Make sure you stir pretty often. Noodles can be added if you want. It is delicious and filling on the first day but even better on the second. I serve with piping hot corn bread. mmm good!

    I love spicy foods and I have found a good spicy soup.

    1 can tomato sauce

    1 can chicken broth

    1/2 can water

    1 package taco seasoning mix

    3 cooked and cut boneless skinless chicken breasts

    1/4 cup jalapenos with juice

    I throw it in the crock for 4 or 5 hours.

    Sometimes I put in veggies if i have them on hand. ( corn, peppers, beans)

    I serve with cheese and tortilla strips. It is really good and a great way to use up leftover chicken and vegetables.

    i admire soups and characteristic various favorites and that they selection in accordance with who i'm making them for. yet those are the excellent 2, i might say. the adolescents bypass loopy for my lentil soup which I more advantageous from the old Progresso soup label for their lentil soup. They replaced their recipe two times on condition that then however the unique ingredients make the perfect soup. I saute chopped celery and celery tops and onions. upload a bay leaf, a huge tablespoon of tomato paste, veg boullion, washed lentils, water, garlic powder and a frozen block of spinach or mustard vegetables or kale and cook dinner. now and returned I upload carrots or cooked pasta. My husband and brother love Tuscan sausage soup which mimics Olive backyard's soup. it is sauteeing sausage and garlic and onion, including crushed warm pepper, fowl broth or different easy broth and kale and chopped potatoes. cook dinner until eventually potatoes are soft and upload in maximum of a can of evap milk. now and returned, I upload in white beans. now and returned I puree the beans to make a thicker broth. now and returned, I bypass the sausage and upload a ton extra garlic. soups are so versatile that way--you are able to relatively exchange them around with despite you have handy or sense like that day!

    I usually set up my crock pot with whole chicken pieces to simmer throughout the day in chicken broth, with sliced carrots, sliced celery, mushrooms, and a bay leaf. When I get home from work, I scoop out the chicken bones and add noodles or rice about 30 minutes before I want to eat.
