Soup Recipe Exchange

This week has been pretty busy leading up to the First Annual Souperama!-picking a soup, buying enough ingredients for 200 people, and finally making the soup itself. With all of that and life in general, I haven't had enough time to provide a super extensive soup recipe exchange, BUT these selections are some of my favorites from the week and maybe a smaller list will enable you to make all three (if you are up to the challenge). Hope you enjoy these selections and swing by Jimmy's No. 43 this weekend for the Souperama! Also, a special welcome to the newest soup blogger-soup chick aka Lydia Walshin who actually has been blogging for some time now on The Perfect Pantry. Her new project will showcase seven soups every Saturday from different blogs, in addition to "cookbooks, soup pots, bowls and tureens," as stated by the soup chick. Can't wait to see what recipes show up on her site!
  • Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup- Created for her hubby, Maria of Two Peas in a Pod made a scrumptious looking soup composed of black beans and sweet potatoes. I loved how she included sweet potato (personal fav of mine) that she had lying around, along with roasted red peppers, tomatoes, cumin and cilantro that resulted in a tasty, filling, and nutritional soup with a kick.
  • Dried Bean and Rosemary Soup- If I had to pick a favorite herb rosemary is definitely in the top three, so when I saw this dried bean and rosemary soup I was instantly attracted to this concept. Created by Brent Ridge of the site-Beekman 1802, this soup uses some basic components (chicken, garlic, onions) and fuses them with dried beans that soak overnight and lard to create a tasty puree. I also love the garnish option (lemon, parsley, and truffle oil), which Ridge states "adds depth to the earthy beans."
  • ABC Meatball- Created by Steamy Kitchen, this ABC Meatball was designed for her kids as a simple and hearty soup that even sneaks in a heaping amount of veggies. The turkey meatballs on their own sound amazing, along with the use of fun ABC-shaped pasta and veggies (carrots, celery, and bell peppers) that is a certainly a healthy dish for adults and kids alike.
