Chilled coconut milk and honeydew with an infusion of mint and melon liqueur makes a delightful start to a meal. Served in a chilled small soup cup and garnished with a sprig of peppermint. Every time it gets wows! Volume varies with the size of the melon. I use 5-ounce servings.
A light vegetable soup using canned cream of mushroom soup as a base.
An Asian egg noodle soup with a base of ginger, garlic, and beef (or chicken) stock. flavored with fresh basil, and green onions.

This recipe is mainly a guideline on how to create a basic soup. Add whatever veggies you want.
Good beer cheese soup.
A nice simple soup that is thickened with beans, not with a roux. This hearty soup will leave your mouth watering for more. It is also something that will go well with a bowl of rice.

Thick and creamy, this quick and easy soup for 2 people is ready in just 20 minutes. The finer you chop the broccoli, the quicker it will cook.
A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
Very, very, good as a leftover once it has a chance for the flavors to blend together. Perfect for a cold day. I freeze the extra in single serving size containers and heat in the microwave for a quick, hearty lunch!
This is a easy black bean soup with the smoky flavor and kick of chipotle peppers. Resist the urge to add any salt as the bacon and canned beans already bring enough salt to the soup the balance the dish perfectly. I used bacon ends for this recipe because they are cheap. If you can't find them, choice bacon is fine to use. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream and Tostones (Fried Plantains).
Milk and creamed corn make this chowder thick and creamy.
This is a beautiful cream of tomato soup, but with a very Irish twist: the use of Poitin. Poitin is basically Irish moonshine made from potatoes, usually at over 90% pure alcohol. If you don't have access to moonshine (Irish or otherwise) feel free to substitute vodka. Bear in mind that either way, the harsh alcohol cooks out leaving a unique flavour with this dish.
A delicious and hearty soup with sausage, beans, and vegetables that is thick enough to make a meal! I serve this with a side of Italian bread with butter or extra virgin olive oil, oregano, toasted garlic, and basil to taste.
Dashi is the traditional soup base, stock for many Japanese soups and sauces. This homemade version, however time consuming, is much better than using instant dashi (dashi-no-moto). This is a great starting point for miso soup! Dashi can be kept up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or can be frozen to keep for longer periods.
An easy seafood bisque that doesn't require you make the basic soup. Can be serve immediately, but it's better if you refrigerate it overnight and reheat before serving.
This is a quick easy soup recipe that has been in the family for years.
My Great-great grandmother's recipe, modified over 4 generations. I still can't believe it was FINALLY written down! The gumbo should be thin but not watery. P.S .-- I have a 3-gallon pot that I use to cook this and it is usually about 3/4 full. (Make sure you know the basics of making roux before you try this. If the roux is not dark brown, the gumbo will not have the rich taste necessary to give it that special taste). This is good for several days. It can also be frozen and reheated. Enjoy!
