FFwD - Spur-of-the-moment Vegetable Soup


This week's FFwD recipe is Spur-of-the-moment Vegetable Soup.  Basically, you fry up some onion, carrot, garlic, ginger, celery and thyme, then add chicken stock and a cubed potato, simmer it for a while, puree it and then bingo - soup.

I don't think this looked or tasted much different to the Paris mushroom soup, but hey, that's just me.  I won't make this again - it just didn't grab me.

To se what other Dorie fans thought of this soup, visit the LYL section of the website.

It is a shame this didn't grab you my friend but it still looks tasty :D

Oh that's a shame - we loved this one! Still, it's better soup weather here than down there I guess!

I kind of stopped reading the directions and threw whatever vegetables I wanted to use up in the pot. It was darned ugly, but tasty enough... (I am pretty sure no garlic or ginger were involved).
Sorry this wasn't a hit for you :-(

Maybe for you Cher's lead of using it as a base and allowing yourself to be creative... you might enjoy it more...Oh well at least you tried it.

The mushroom soup wasn't a hit for me, but I thought this one was good. Not special occasion good, but weeknight dinner good.

Sorry this wasn't a hit. Still, your soup looks delicious.

I am sorry this recipe did not work for you. There always is next week:)

TeaLady said...

Oh, well. Can't love ALL the recipes. It does make a good base for a stockier soup.

Lizzy Do said...

Yeah, it's not good when carrot soup tastes the same as mushroom soup :/ At least you had some yummy brownies for dessert!

Betsy said...

Bummer that you didn't love this one. Oh, well, there's always the promise of next week's recipe...

Elaine said...

Sorry you didn't like this one. I really liked the broth and was happy that my family like the collard greens in it.

Kayte said...

I must have done something different because my soup didn't look like yours...hmmm...at any rate, yours looks good, and we did love what mine turned out to be. Funny how that happens.

Adriana said...

I'm late posting this week and will be making the soup today. So far it seems I'll be making FFwD stone soup - adding Mary's quinoa, Elaine's collards and so forth. Have a great weekend!

I think I would agree with you on this soup - my mum made a similar soup but not pureed and I disliked vegie soup for years as a result - and there are so many more interesting vegetable soups than this

Patty said...

I did a little tweaking on my FFWD veggie soup and it turned out pretty tasty but I am a soup lover;-)

awww... I think you should give it another go, maybe leave out the herbs and try a different combo of veggies? Nice effort though!

When you have all kinds of leftover veggies in your fridge, perhaps you should throw them all in a pot, season them heavily, roast 'em, add some broth, and puree the heck of the entire production. If you're hungry enough, it may taste delicious. Then, maybe not.
