Soup Recipe: Soup Du Jour 31 days of soup with Chef Preston

Soup du Jour – 31 Days of Soup

Winter is officially here so warm yourself up with a nice big bowl of soup.  Don’t be too surprised if we venture away from soup once or twice.  I have some great chili and stew recipes as well.  

Our first soup is an easy Chicken Noodle Soup. Sure to please your soul, chicken soup is also good for a cold. Here’s why.  

Day 2 brings us a Creamy Mushroom Soup. Cream of mushroom soup is a simple type of soup. It is well known in North America as a common type of condensed canned soup, but this recipe is so much better.

Day 3, a fragrant Carrot Ginger Soup. Carrot soup has been described as a “classic” dish in French cuisine. The soup was eaten by King Edward VII every year on  August 26th to commemorate the 1346 Battle of Crécy.

Day 4 Vietnamese Pho. Pronounced Pho, this noodle soup originated in the early part of the 20th century and one of the most popular street foods in Asia today.

Day 5 Roasted Red Bell Pepper soup.  I have made this many times for my catered dinner parties and it is always a favorite.

Day 6 Chicken  and Rice Soup. This hearty meal in a bowl is sure to satisfy any hungry man.

Day 7 Pan Fusion Soup? I totally made this up, but it turned out really well.  Similar to pho, with a different flare.

Day 8 Broccoli Cheddar Soup.  I love this “Copy Cat” Panera Bread recipe.  If you don’t want all that cheese, you might like this recipe instead.

Day 9 Chicken Tortilla Soup. This zesty fiesta of flavor is so good. It makes enough that you could probably stash some away in the freezer for those nights when you just want to pull something out quick for dinner

Day 10 Salmon Bisque.  An elegant, creamy soup, this recipe is sure to impress!

Day 11 French Lentil Soup.  If you have never had a “mess of pottage”, you should definitely give it a try.  

Day 12 Potato Leek Soup.  Must try! This recipe is from the Queen of the Kitchen herself.

Day 13 Gumbo.  Ewww weee.  I love some good Cajun food. I still have nightmares Peaches!

Day 14 Of course everyone loves Tomato Soup with a nice grilled cheese sandwich. This recipe includes how to make Parmesan Crisps if you want a grown-up twist on the classic combo.

Day 15 Moroccan Beef Stew.  I love making this for a dinner party.  The exotic flavors you will taste remind me of the food I ate while in Egypt, during Desert Storm.

Day 16 A Hearty Winter Minestrone and some fresh Garlic Bruschetta is such a nice meal for a busy week night.  

Day 17  Spicy Paleo Chili  This recipe uses buffalo because it is high in protein and rich in flavor. Bison meat is also lower in calories and cholesterol than beef, pork, turkey, skinless chicken.  It is more expensive, so feel free to use the other meats.

Day 18 Matzo Ball Soup Honestly, most of us have never tried this traditional Passover Soup, but a while back, one of my clients taught me how to make it.  

Day 19  Cold Avocado Soup?  Why not!

Day 20 Tortellini Soup This is an easy week night meal.  Only takes 20 minute!  How is easy is that?

Day 21 Cauliflower Kale Soup.  Don’t say ewwww!  You haven’t tried it yet

Day 22 Classic French Onion Soup. Onion soups have been popular at least as far back as Roman times. Throughout history, they were seen as food for poor people, as onions were plentiful and easy to grow. The modern version of this soup originates in Paris, France in the 18th century.

Day 23 Corn Chowder

Day 24 Sweet Potato, Coconut and Cardamom Soup.  Here’s to my Paleo Peeps!

Day 25 Witch’s Purple Cabbage Soup.  Great for Halloween!

Day 26 Egg Drop Soup.  So easy to make.

Day 27 Bacon Beer Cheese Soup.  Now this is a man’s soup!

Day 28 Split Pea Soup.  Love it

Day 29 Vegetable Soup with Sriracha, Lemon Grass and Tofu.  If you grow a garden, you can grow your own lemon grass all summer long.

Day 30 Pasole. I love hominy and mexican food.  Enjoy.

Day 31 Beef Barley Soup
