Thread Name: BS: Vegetable soup - any ideas?
Subject: RE: BS: Vegetable soup - any ideas?
Al my vegetable soups get a drib of sesame oil and 3 sloshes of picante hot sauce and for hint of sweetness a teaspoon of ketchup especially if there is tomato. In fact today is veg soup day. If cheese is added always grate it and add it at the end under low heat.

veggies to use; lots of carrots, cauliflower, corn, cabbage bits, onion chunks, garlic slices, corn, black beans, okra, fennel slices and celery. I avoid pasta and go with potato cubes.

veggies I avoid; broccoli, beets,

season to taste with; salt pepper tarragon garlic salt experimental dashes of fennel seed cinnamon minced magic mushrooms and grains of paradise. Any amount of cumin turns it decidedly Mexican.

If you ever season it too hot with ghost pepper or red pepper, tone it down with crushed pineapple or apple sauce (sweet and hot)
