    EF Chefs! Recommend me a soup to make!

    Hey, so I'm running out of ideas. Well... not really, but everytime I start to look at recipes i get distracted and cant decide on what to make haha. I'm in charge of making all of the soup for my work, and I can order whatever I want to use, so that's not a problem. We are a small-medium sized restaurant focusing on a more organic, healthy menu, but that doesnt have to stop any one's ideas. In the past I've made a white bean chicken chili, vegetable root, pretty much any type of chicken mixed with whatever veggis, Cock a Leekie, Potato, clam chowder, bisc, etc.. We have to cook off 28 chickens a week, maybe more, so we always have a fresh amount of broth available. But since that's been getting played out recently, I'm thinking more of a cream based soup? I guess it doesnt really matter.

    So pretty much whatever is free game, I just dont want to end up making something lame. Thats where I'm hoping you guys can help out haha. Help me impress the owner

    cream of asparagus with some cayenne is amazing.
    Broccoli cheddar
    corn chowder
    salmon bisque
    whiskey crab
    I had a pretty decent tomato soup with chorizo the other day
    I love thai soups, a lot of coconut milk soups are delicious
    carrot soup. Really any just super simple vegetable soup can be amazing.
    squash soup

    Man, I love soup. There's a lot of great ones out there. I want to spend time learning to cook some.

    I got real confused when I saw your name at first haha.

    Yeah there's just so many that look good that I dont know where to begin, so I just keep looking.

    I agree about the carrot soup, that usually is the "oh shit we're out soup" to make. I'm really interested in the coconut milk soup and the cream of asparagus sounds really good. When I wake up tomorrow I'll check out some recipes online. Thanks

    Do some Thai or Korean soups. Koreans do soups like Americans do burgers. Lots of them and many different varieties.

    Tom Yum Goong is a classic Thai shrimp/prawn soup.

    haha, thats hilarious.

    I've never added rice to one yet. Like the thought never really crossed my mind. Especially when I was looking for filler on one of the other ones.. haha, I'm a retard.

    One large red onion, cut into eighths
    One medium shallot
    1/2 pound mushrooms (crimini or button)
    1 pint cream
    1 pint guinness extra stout
    two tablespoons of fresh chopped sage
    two teaspoons dried thyme
    24 oz chicken stock
    2.5 pounds smoked chicken sausage
    8 oz Gorgonzola
    Salt
    Pepper

    preheat oven to 425. Place sausages on a shallow baking pan.

    Arrange whole garlic cloves, potatoes, and onions (separate layers) on another large baking pan. Toss with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Roast vegetables until crisp and browned/blackened on the tips, cook sausage thoroughly.

    Let sausage cool. Cut into medallions at an angle. Cut the mushies into sixths. If the mushrooms are small, just quarter them. Slice the shallot thinly. Cook the sausage, mushroom, and shallot in olive oil in a large pot. Salt and pepper.

    Deglaze the pot with the guinness. Just dump the pint in (it usually comes in 22 oz, just save about a third of it to drink while cooking), and get the bits and pieces off the bottom of the pan.

    Take half of your roasted veggies, and blend in your food processor with the chicken stock and cream. Do 1/3 of them at a time. When they are all blended, add them to the soup and bring to a simmer. Salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer for a good half hour.

    Crumble your 8 oz of gorgonzola, chop the sage, and add to your soup along with the reserved vegetables. Stir in the thyme as well. Bring to a simmer again, and cook together for about five minutes.
    an old recipe but it kicks some major ass

    I just made creamy asparagus this morning, it turned out really good. I'll post the recipe when I get home or if I get a break. But it turned out really good, thanks for all the help. I'll probably make another one Sunday or Monday so this thread is definately going to be very useful

    Butternut squash is a favorite of mine and pretty simple to make. Just roast at 425 with some coriander, cumin, sea salt, and pepper till soft. Saute an onion with some sage till soft. Add squash and enough stock to cover and simmer for half an hour or so. Blend then add a bit of heavy cream and toasted pumpkin seeds.

    I don't have any recipes available, but some of my favorite soups are 1) Smoked Salmon Corn Chowder and 2) Split Pea Soup made with leftover pork ham bone. Deeeeelicious. Since we're heading into fall i think it would be a good time to brush up on some good cinnamon squash soups.

    Lemon and artichoke is a good combo.

    If you want to do something really different, look up a "Rhode Island" clam chowder

    I've got an incredible soup with minimal ingredients. It works best with a Danish bleu such as Rosenborg in my opinion.

    Buffalo chicken soup

    1 lb chicken thighs, cut into cubes
    2 T rice flour
    salt and pepper
    1 T butter
    1 onion
    2 carrots
    2 stalks of celery
    garlic
    4 c chicken broth
    1/2 to 1 c hot wing sauce
    1 c spiral noodles
    3/4 c blue cheese, crumbled

    Dredge the chicken cubes in rice flour, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in an appropriate soup making pot, and brown the chicken on all sides.
    Once browned, remove the chicken from the pot and stir in the vegetables. Cook the vegetables 15 minute over medium-low heat until softened.
    Add the chicken and any juices that have oozed out, then stir in the chicken broth, hot wing sauce and noodles.
    Bring to a simmer and cook about fifteen minutes, until noodles are tender.
    Stir in blue cheese until melted and serve

    Cheddar broccoli, but make it spicy and fresh.
