Saturdays are for testing out recipes and giving you the skinny. Each recipe comes from a food blogger from around the country. This week’s recipe comes from Cook Like a Champion.
I tried to make my own croutons, and I’m not ashamed to admit it…I burned them. I was focused on the soup and too many kids tugging at my mental fortitude. Anyway, I diced all the veggies beforehand. That made things a lot easier. This is a very easy recipe, just keep an eye on things, and follow the excellent directions.
This soup just wasn’t my style–t0o thick. But I added an extra cup of broth and that helped. A little of this soup goes a long way. It would be good for a large party where you could almost serve it as a “shooter”. Also, I know this sounds crazy, but this would make for an exceptional topping for some homemade enchiladas.
Don’t believe me? I plan to take this soup and make enchiladas with it. Heavy soups like this often don’t translate very well in this area of the country, but I plan to adapt it.
Why you should go to this site…
I think this is a couple’s blog (which is cool). The pictures are beautiful, the recipes are unique, and the entries are consistent. As mentioned, the directions for each recipe are very precise.
