Superb Soups

Have you visited SoupHerb Soups at the Barrie Farmer’s Market? Don’t forget that from November to April the market is now indoors.

Need some inspiration? Try these in season ingredients for your soup: apples, beets, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, potatoes, radishes, and squash. Or, watch Julia Child as she makes Onion Soup. Find a recipe for soup in the library collection, here is a link to the soup books at your library.

What are you going to serve with your soup? Here are a few ideas:

  • crusty bread, biscuits or scones
  • salad
  • sandwich, wrap or panini
  • cheese plate
  • meat or fish
  • roasted or raw vegetables
  • quiche
  • make a fruit salad for desert!

Try a soup as an appetizer at one of the Flavours of Ontario’s Lake Country restaurants (on until Nov. 11th), and enjoy a $20 (or more) three course meal. I recommend Era 67. While eating out remember these tips on how to eat your soup properly. My favourite tip which actually works is to scoop away from yourself when eating soup so that the spoon doesn’t drip.

With the holidays coming up, for a creative and homemade gift give a soup mix. Try Oprah’s recipe for Mixed Bean Soup Mix or Good Housekeeping’s Curried Lentil Soup.

Here is what Seinfeld has to say: Seinfeld soup scene.

How will you prepare your soup? Will you make it cold, in a crock pot, in a blender or on the stove top. If you didn’t cook soup for November No Soup for you!
