I have noticed on the boards that many bees make soups to bring to work for lunches. I only know like 2 soup recipes… anyone care to share their go to recipes? I am pregnant and trying to eat healthy, while also saving money. Thanks bees!

Cream of chicken and wild rice! Emily Bites has a lightened up recipe that’s amazing. I follow this one pretty much to the letter, aside from using half the flour/butter and 1% milk (still gets plenty thick if you let it simmer a bit longer)

@Ms.Pink: I LOVE butternut squash soup.
Here is what I do:
1. peel and chunk up a good sized butternut squash. Cook it in the crockpot all day (I work 9-5). I usually add some dabs of butter, salt, pepper and drizzle of maple syrup to it before I leave the house.
2. Once you are ready to make dinner, melt some butter and olive oil in a big soup pot. Saute one chopped onion and some garlic (I do the jarred stuff so I can add loads with minimal effort). Saute that up nicely.
3. Then transfer your cooked squash from your crockpot to the soup pot. Add about 4 cups of chicken broth (I like the base that is a refridgerated jar of paste).
4. Heat it up and stick your immersion blender stick in the pot to puree. (After many years of doing the blender method in sections and scaling myself, I got an immersion blender and it’s the best!)
5. Because I have a dairy issue, and cannot do cream or half and half, I actually use kefir (yogurt’s cousin). I add about 1 cup of kefir after it’s been blended. Don’t boil kefir.
6. I will and some dried sage if I have it. DONE!
Absolutely to die for and filling if you add some crusty bread and baked ricotta.

Soup is one of my favorite things to cook, but about half the time I don’t have a recipe. I like to roast a chicken in the crockpot once every week or two. After eating some of the meat for dinner with a veggie side, I remove the bones and skin from the crock (saving the bones to make broth later), and shred the leftover meat. The chicken leaves behind a wonderful, condensed broth in the crock, so I just add some water, spices, and veggies, and the leftover chicken becomes an easy and inexpensive soup. One of my favorite creations lately included a can of Rotel, a couple chipotles in adobo sauce, defrosted frozen spinach, carrot, celery, garlic, and heavy cream. Oh my word, it was so good!
