It is wet, grey and cold today. So I'm in the mood for soup. Any recipes people might want to share. I made quick meatball soup last night, but I'm looking for some new ideas.

I've made Italian wedding soup using this recipe a couple of times and it's quite good, though I have to admit that making dozens of tiny little meatballs is annoying and time-consuming. I also used orzo pasta rather than shells, but that's just because I like the texture of orzo in soups.

I have no idea where I got these recipes. However, I did not invent them so I don't get the credit.

CORN SOUP:

Chop up two mid-size carrots, two stalks of celery, and one large onion.

In a >2 qt. pan:

Saute the vegetables in olive oil until onions are clearish.

Add:
6 cups broth (I use vegetable broth 'cuz I'm a vegetarian)
1 lb. frozen sweet corn kernels
1 tsp. rosemary
1/4 tsp. cayenne
salt and pepper to taste

Simmer until it is flavorful (20 minutes?).

Blend.

Eat. This is especially yummy with fresh bread.

SQUASH SOUP:

Eviscerate, peel, and dice a 2 lb. butternut squash. Do not roast it first. Use a good sharp knife and show no fear. It's only a squash, after all.

Chop up the white of 1 leek. Mince 2 cloves of garlic. Dice up one celery stalk. Chop up the whites of one bundle of green onions.

In > 2 qt. pan:
Melt 2 Tbs. of butter and saute the leek, garlic, green onions, and celery until soft.

Add some salt and 1 tsp. garam masala. Cook another minute.

Add 6 cups vegetable broth, 3 Tbs. apple cider, and the squash. Simmer until squash is soft (~20 minutes).

Blend. Put back in pan. Add 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (kefir will also work...in my house, at least, we always seem to have one or the other on hand). Mix it up, taste, and start adding lime juice. I have no idea how much lime juice - I just squirt some in, taste, and repeat until the flavor perks and the soup becomes fantastically delicious. Add salt if you need/want to.

Both of these soups are even better if you have some fresh bread on the side.

And it's one, two, three / On the wrong side of the lee / What were you meant for? / What were you meant for?

I can not find a decent link and am too lazy to type, but here is a badly formatted version: pea and garlic

basically, roast some garlic and blend with frozen peas and stock. it is really good, although I always get it wrong and end up with a (very tasty) puree instead. it is from Nigella Lawson via Nigel Slater.
