Soup-a-Palooza Link Up and Giveaways

Roasted Corn Soup

Cheryl from TidyMom and I have been anxiously awaiting this day…Soup-a-Palooza is finally here and we want to invite you to share some of your favorite soup recipes with us!

The soup recipe I chose to make for Soup-a-Palooza came from the Tobasco website. I adapted it it quite a bit and really love the end result. The addition of Bush’s Black Beans, topped with Westminster Oyster Crackers and served along side a slice of Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread, this meal was as filling as it was comforting on a cold winters day. In order to keep this post from being 100 miles long, I put the soup recipe over on a post of its own. Check it out here. Also, be sure to check out Cheryl’s Chicken Tortilla Soup over on her blog!

    Linked up a delicious Lemony Chicken Noodle Soup (#113) and also a Chipotle Black Bean & Yam Soup (#114).

    Both are amazingly tasty soups, straight From The Little Yellow Kitchen. :)

    We love soup, and I make it at least twice a week for lunches. I don’t have a blog, but here are two recipes that week like a lot.

    Mary’s Beef Barley Soup

    1 lb. very lean ground beef
    1/2 to 1 c. chopped celery
    1 med. onion, chopped
    1 can (15 oz.) beef broth
    2-3 c. or more tomato or V-8 juice
    1/2 c. barley
    1 bag (16 oz.) frozen, mixed vegetables

    Brown ground beef with celery and onion. Drain off any fat. Add
    remaining ingredients and cook until barley and vegetables are tender,
    about 30 min. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serves 4-6.

    Here is a recipe that uses breakfast sausage in a good and hearty soup.

    Sausage and Potato Chowder

    1 lb. pork sausage
    1 med onion, chopped
    1 lg. clove garlic, minced
    1/2 c. flour
    1 14 1/2 oz. can chicken broth
    6 c. milk (may use some half-&-half)
    2 1-lb. cans cream style corn
    5-6 med potatoes, cooked and diced
    1/2 t. salt(opt.)
    1/4 t. pepper

    Brown sausage, onions and garlic. Do not drain. Stir in flour,
    mixing well. Add milk and chicken broth. Heat until boiling.
    Be careful not to scorch. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat.
    Add all remaining ingredients. Stir well. Heat gently 10-15 minutes. Serves 6-8.

    I’m looking forward to trying many new soup recipes. Thanks for sponsoring this. I get e-mail updates from both Dine and Dish and Tidy Mom.

    Pioneer Woman’s Roasted Vegetable Minestrone is to.die.for. I make it every single Sunday and we eat it all week long. Amazing.

    * 2 whole Zucchini, Halved, Cut Into Strips, Then Cubed
    * 2 whole Summer Squash, Halved, Cut Into Strips, Then Cubed
    * 8 ounces, weight White Mushrooms, Stems Removed And Quartered
    * 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    * Kosher Salt To Taste
    * 2 Tablespoons (additional) Olive Oil
    * 2 whole Carrots, Washed And Sliced (not Peeled)
    * 1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
    * 3 stalks Celery, Sliced (leaves Included)
    * 8 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
    * 2 cans Cannelini Beans, Rinsed
    * 1 cup (heaping) Cut Green Beans, Fresh Or Frozen
    * 1-½ cup Medium Or Small Pasta Shells, Uncooked
    * 1 can (14.5) Diced Tomatoes With Juice
    * Salt And Pepper, to taste
    * ¼ teaspoons Turmeric (optional)
    * Parmesan Cheese, Shaved

    Preparation Instructions

    Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

    Toss cubed zucchini, squash, and mushrooms in a bowl with olive oil and a sprinkling of kosher salt. Arrange onto two sheet pans (to avoid crowding) and roast in the hot oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until brown and black parts begin to show. Remove from oven and set aside.

    In a heavy pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add carrots, onions, and celery and stir to cook for 3 minutes. Pour in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for ten minutes.

    Add cannelini beans and green beans. Cook on low for five minutes. Add pasta and cook for an additional five minutes. Add canned tomatoes, stir, and cook for an additional five minutes on low heat. Check for seasonings, adding salt, pepper, and turmeric.

    Add roasted vegetables at the very end. Stir and allow to simmer and heat for a few minutes before serving. Be sure to check seasoning! Add more broth if necessary to increase liquid amount.

    Serve with Parmesan shavings and crusty Italian bread.
