Thread: Name that Soup!

  1. #1

    Name that Soup!

    I should have named this thread "Do my job for me".

    I'm a Sous and that means Soup of the Day. Every day. I'm not a robot, so my memory doesn't work well in the morning on occasion.




    Name a soup! Hell, let's name them all! I want a place I can go to reference every soup imaginable, no matter what--there is literally no telling what I will have to work with.

    So what is a soup? Favorites? Least favorites?

    This week we've done Italian Wedding, Minestrone and French Onion. Was thinking of whipping up some cream of mushroom to use up the last quarter case. There's 4 to start you.

    By the way, tip of the hat to you. My idiot co workers will run the same damn soup every day for days. Runs out, they make it again. Kills me.

    My favorites these days include one or all of the above: hearty greens (kale, escarole for instance), Italian Sausage, or lentils/heirloom beans. Spicy Italian sausage makes most things better -- bacon is so 2000s

    I couldn't agree more. Anything with greens & legumes, although I'd go for chorizo or linguica over the Italian.
