Soup Recipe Exchange

This week, like most weeks did not fail in the discovery of new and exciting soups. I easily located my standard three favorites, but as I continued to search I couldn't stop linking (and drooling) over the uniquely crafted recipes from some very creative bloggers and chefs out there. This list would actually have a lot more soups, but I had to stop myself and I wanted you to be to take it all in and hopefully test some out yourself. Here's a listing of this weeks fav's.
  • Carrot-Coconut Soup with Lime- A non-sweet carrot soup, this carrot-coconut combination provides a soup that is "creamy, spicy, fruity, and slightly sour." Along with the addition of coconut milk, this soup created by Seitan is My Mother features quite the interesting blend of flavors that I can't wait to test out myself.
  • Beef Brisket Vegetable Soup-This recipe, created by the W.H.O.L.E Gang features a traditional soupy that actually is casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and gluten-free. The soup can also be varied up a bit by using chicken, turkey, or pork instead of beef-making this recipe a simply and easy take on a classic.
  • Tuscan Bread Soup-Tomatoes, stale bread, and various spices and presto you have bread soup. Ok, so there is more to this soup that just that, but those are the main components that Martha from Soup and Bread use to create this soupy. It can also be topped with mussels like this one on the kitch or even with smoked pork, prosciutto rind, or of course simply left as is.
  • Broccoli Argula Soup- Broccoli with a touch of cirtus and some spices was the inspiration for this broccoli argula soup by Joy the Baker.  No cream was used, just the simplicity of the broccoli enhanced with onions, garlic, cumin, and soup stock-as Joy mentions is also filling.
  • Cream of Lentil Soup-One of my fav's, lentil soup never fails, but it's also key to remember that you don't always have to make a traditional lentil soup the same way every time. This creamy variety created by Food for a Hungry Soul uses whipping cream, spinach, and curry that as FFAHS stated  made the soup for her with its "perfect amount, spicy, aromatic, warm but not overpowering."
  • 5 ingredients. 10 minutes. 5 meals.Warming Soups-For some people soup is not a meal, its well, a soup. This is of course is true but it can provide enough sustenance to be a meal and with these five meal-soups from Zen Family Habits its hard to doubt its filling potential. Zen family includes a pea and pasta soup with bacon, gently spiced lentil soup, zucchini (courgette) soup, chicken and couscous soup,and a hot prawn (shrimp) soup that certainly seems filling to me.
  • Creamy Eggplant Soup- I love eggplant and have actually thinking about ways to turn in into a soup, but low-and-behold The Green Prophet bet me to it. This recipe blends veggie stock with various herbs and cream to create a Middle-Eastern inspired soup that you don't see every day, but one that you should surely try to attempt on your own.

What soups have you tried this week?
