Exploring the Soul Mate of Soup.

Soup is great for lunch or dinner. Sometimes you may feel that soup is not enough or you need something a little more solid in your life. It is a no brainer, sandwiches are the answer – they are after all soups soul mate.

Some people have even taken their soup and sandwiches to the next level, putting their sandwich (or bread) into soup, like this Spanish classic, Castilian Garlic Soup via Williams Sonoma Taste. 

Castilian Garlic Soup

Ingredients: 

1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) olive oil

Six thin slices day-old rustic white bread (about 6 oz./170 g)

6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 Tbs. finely chopped yellow onion

1 heaping tsp. pimentón (Spanish smoked pepper)

6 cups (48 fl. oz./1.5 l) boiling water

1 sprig fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves minced

6 eggs

Fine sea salt

Directions: 

  1. Preheat an oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. 1. In a fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Working in batches as necessary, add the bread slices in a single layer and fry, turning once, until golden brown. Using tongs, transfer to a flameproof, ovenproof casserole dish, arranging them in a single layer.
  3. Pour off most of the oil from the fry pan and return it to medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and sauté until lightly browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the pimentón and stir once or twice. Pour the contents of the pan over the bread.
  4. Place the casserole dish over low heat and add the boiling water and parsley. Increase the heat to medium and return to a boil, stirring once or twice, then simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Crack the eggs into the soup, sprinkling a little salt on each one. Transfer the dish to the oven and bake until the eggs are just cooked, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve piping hot.

It is without a doubt that Sandwiches are Soups soul mate…

Summer: sweat, sun, soup

Summer is fast approaching and the heat will be increasing. Soon you will be overheating and trying to figure out a way to cool down. And although lemonade is refreshing it is not for everyone. I got two words for you – cold soup.

Summer’s Coolest Meal  via Charles Pierce

“A steaming bowl of soup can be a big turn-off when the temperature starts to climb, but chilled soups are a different story altogether. Cool, refreshing, colourful, and loaded with seasonal fruits and veggies, they’re a perfect way to beat the heat.”

Charles Pierce provides a fantastic cold soup recipe that will be sure to cool you down. I know one thing for sure this soup makes me extremely excited for Summer!

-This is one thing you won’t have to worry about when you create cold soups this Summer because your soup is meant to be cold. 🙂

 

 

Who wouldn’t want to eat cold soup on a hot Summer day? I mean just look at @food24 chilled beetroot & herb soup with goat cheese! Look really refreshing.

Feeling a little more sweet than savoury? Chilled soup can come in both forms. Look at @doodleplix lovely tweet of chilled strawberry lime soup, how one not want to eat that?

-Now the market for chilled soup isn’t as huge as canned or hot soup but since 2011 it is growing fast. This is one bandwagon I am willing to jump on.

So jump on that bandwagon! Here are some blogs with fantastic Cold Soup Recipes:

The Secret to Spain’s Happiness – Gazpacho

Spain is notoriously known for siestas and fiestas, all in which contribute to the perceived happy culture of the Spanish people. But there is a less known secret about Spaniards happiness – Gazpacho. A cold and refreshing soup that Spaniards sip on to escape the hot rays of sun; this is the key to happiness – a cold bowl of Gazpacho on a hot day.

@Food&Tapas really nailed that meaning of Gazpacho in this tweet.

gaz

-So true, because there is a difference between cold soup and gazpacho you know! Via quick meme. To get a little more insight on the history of gazpacho! Because soup is more than just a scrumptious liquid, it has a complete history. Courtesy of Amanda M. Darling via her youtube Culinary History with Caroline

Here is the breakdown of Gazpacho:

 

How does one make Gazpacho though? Dana Wilde via OC Mom Blog elegantly explains the liquid happiness as follows:

A Taste of Spain… Andalusian Gazpacho

How could you not love a tomato-based soup with chunky pieces of cucumber and pepper? It was so refreshing and cool and at the height of summer helped conquer the heat of the city. It wasn’t until I visited Spain with my friend and roommate Katie that I first tried Andalusian Gazpacho. It was a completely different Gazpacho than what I had ever had before and I fell in love with it.

What was different? It was the slightly grainy, yet creamy texture, the tang of sherry vinegar and the not strong but still present garlic. It was zesty and refreshing and addicting and so much better than what I was used to.

After doing a little research, what I came to discover was the texture I loved so much in the Andalusian Gazpacho I had in Spain came from olive oil and… bread!

It’s not a quick and easy recipe. Not that it’s complicated really. It just takes some chopping, some blending, and some straining. It’s well worth it though.

Makes approximately 8 cups

Ingredients:

4 slices of Italian country loaf (best if a day or two old, so it’s dried out a bit)

3 pounds of ripe tomatoes (roma or vine ripened)

2 cucumbers

1 red pepper

1 green pepper

1/4 medium red onion

3 cloves of garlic

¼ tsp of cumin seeds

sea salt or kosher salt

½ cup of Spanish extra virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp of aged sherry vinegar

Chives for garnish

Instrucdtions:

  • Remove crust from the slices of bread. Crumble the bread into a bowl. Slice tomatoes in half or quarter and collect seeds with juice in the bowl with the bread. Add a tablespoon of sherry vinegar. Mulch it all together with your hands and let rest while you dice your vegetables, starting with the tomatoes.
  • Peel and dice cucumbers, leaving seeds in.
  • Remove core and seeds of both red and green pepper and dice.
  • Peel the red onion and dice ¼ of it saving remaining for another use.
  • Place all vegetables into a large bowl and toss together with about 3/4 teaspoon of salt and let rest while juices form about 15 minutes.
  • Toast cumin seeds on medium low heat until fragrant
  • Peel garlic and smash removing the bitter green center.
  • Place garlic, toasted cumin seeds, and ½ teaspoon of salt in mortar and pestle and smash into a paste.
  • Place the tomato and vinegar soaked bread into a food processor and add the garlic paste. Pureé until smooth.
  • Add one third of the vegetables and 1/3 of the extra virgin olive oil into the food processor with the bread garlic mixture still in the bowl and purée until smooth.
  • Place a strainer over an eight cup measuring cup and strain the mixture using the back of a wooden spoon to press the mixture through the strainer. Discard solids. Process the remaining vegetables and extra virgin olive oil in two batches and strain.
  • Once all three batches are processed and strained, pass through a fine sieve the second time, using the back of a wooden spoon to press through and once again discard the solids. While you can use a fine sieve the first time and strain only once, I think it’s easier to use a regular strainer first to get the larger chunks and then remove what’s left with the finer sieve.
  • Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of aged sherry vinegar and chill for at least 3 hours before serving. Garnish with a drizzle of the Spanish extra virgin olive oil and chopped chives.

For more details about Dana’s recipe go check out her post on OC Mom Blog. 

Also, how can one not be happy when they are eating something that looks this beautiful, pretty hard for someone not to feel joy! Look at these pretty gazpacho’s – works of art I say.

The key to happiness (well at least in Spain) is Gazpacho. So if you want to feel fresh, alive, and of course happy make yourself some gazpacho.

“This healthy vegetarian cream of mushroom soup with walnut lentil pate crostini is a make over of the classic recipe that you grew up with as a kid. Except this one is made from scratch and with the addition of the yummy crostini and truffle oil!

 

Don’t let the name fool you I know it sounds really fancy. But I assure you this recipe is not really challenging to make. The soup itself is also a total breeze.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ¾ cup canned lentils, drained
  • ½ cup toasted walnuts

  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 12 slices baguette, preferably whole-grain, toasted

 

Instructions 

  1. Mince ½ clove garlic. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and mash into a paste with the side of a chefs knife. Transfer the paste to a food processor or mini-prep and add lentils, walnuts, 1 tablespoon chives, 2 teaspoons truffle oil, vinegar, 1 tablespoon chives and process to combine.
  2. Finely chop the remaining 2 ½ cloves garlic. Melt butter in a large heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and the remaining garlic and cook, stirring until starting to brown and soften, 4 to 6 minutes. Add mushrooms, thyme and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cook stirring often, until the mushrooms have released their juices and the juices have evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Add sherry and rosemary, bring to a simmer and let sherry evaporate until almost completely dry, 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle flour over the vegetable mixture and stir to coat. Add broth, increase heat to high and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Add milk and return to a simmer, stirring often. Remove from the heat, stir in chives.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls. Drizzle the remaining 4 teaspoons truffle oil over the soup, dividing evenly. Spread the lentil walnut pate over the baguette and serve with the soup.

Not fancy in preparation, only in name.”

Crack Open a Can of Vegan

Veganism has taken off in recent years, capturing thousands to follow this respecting the Earth trend. Those who are vegans make a big deal of restaurants having vegan options on their menus, but what do vegans make at home? One simple recipe is soup – vegan revamped.

Respect the Earth – Respect Yourself.

So What is a Vegan?

 explains what is a vegan and what vegans eat. 

“In fact, online searches for the term vegan have risen by more than 250% over the last 5 years.

Veganism is currently defined as a way of living that attempts to exclude all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, be it for food, clothing or any other purpose.

Vegans avoid all foods of animal origin. These include:

  • Meat.
  • Chicken.
  • Fish.
  • Shellfish.
  • Eggs.
  • Dairy.
  • Honey.

Moreover, vegans avoid foods containing any ingredients that come from animals.

This includes albumin, casein, carmine, gelatin, lactic acid, pepsin, shellac, vitamin D3, whey or certain animal-derived E-numbers.

Foods containing these ingredients can include some types of beer and wine, marshmallows, frosted mini-wheats, certain gummy candies and chewing gums.

Foods That Vegans Choose to Eat Instead

Vegan Burger

Avoiding animal products doesn’t mean you must survive on veggies and tofu alone.

In fact, many common dishes are already vegan or can be adjusted easily.

Some examples include bean burritos, veggie burgers, tomato pizzas, smoothies, nachos with salsa and guacamole, hummus wraps, sandwiches and pasta dishes.

Meat-based entrees are generally swapped for meals containing the following:

  • Beans.
  • Lentils.
  • Tofu.
  • Seitan.
  • Tempeh.
  • Nuts.
  • Seeds.

Dairy products are usually replaced with plant milks. Scrambled eggs can be swapped for scrambled tofu, whereas raw eggs can be replaced with flaxseeds or chia seeds in various recipes.

Honey can be swapped for plant-based sweeteners, such as molasses or maple or rice syrups. In addition, vegans tend to consume a variety of whole grains, as well as a wide array of fruits and vegetables (23, 24).

Finally, vegans can also choose from an ever increasing selection of ready-made vegan products, including vegan meats, fortified plant milks, vegan cheeses and even vegan versions of your favourite desserts.”

 does a beautiful job summing up what a vegan is and what they can and cannot eat via What is a Vegan and What Do Vegans Eat?MintelPieChart-2

The world has experienced a drastically large increase in vegans in the past 6 years or so and let me tell you it has reacted postiviley. Becuase who doesn’t want to give back to the Earth? Where does one find Vegan Food? One great example is highlighted in this article by 

“For those who follow a vegan diet, finding food at restaurants can be difficult, but less so in Chicago. The city boasts more than 40 vegan restaurants to choose from, including the popular Chicago Diner, Native Foods and Upton’s Breakroom, which are known for classic veggie-based grub.

Ethnic food has not been left out of the vegan community, but it is not what most people think of when they think of veganism. However, ethnic vegan restaurants are blossoming and creating an alternative to the veggie burger or tofu scramble that everyone’s vegan best friend will not shut up about.”

One example is the restaurant, “Baba’s Village serves and even delivers vegan Indian and Pakistani dishes.

Owner Malik Mohammed said the restaurant prides itself on being one of the only downtown-area Indian restaurants that uses meat substitutes. He said his chefs use soy meat in the ginger chicken and Jalerazi dishes with ample vegetables to create the right texture and protein he knows people want.”

It is all fine and dandy that the Vegan scene is making great advancements with vegan oriented restaurants, with many of their menu’s becoming vegan-driven, like the companies mentioned in The Columbia Chronicle’s article: The ethnic side of veganism: Chicago offers so many meatless choices, you’ll never get bored . But what do vegans eat at home?

-One simple, easy, and delicious menu option vegans make at home is soup.

Individuals are cracking open their own cans of soup, revamped, homemade, VEGAN style.

Here are some twitter posts that are not only funny but accurate.

Oh the irony of the spices being used to season meat…

Here are some great blogs that have fantastic soup recipes. Let me tell you vegan or not your will want to “crack open a can” of these vegan takes on soup:

Oh She Glows

Vegan Richa

Oh My Veggies

Simple Vegan Blog

Oh man these Vegan soups look fantastic! Like this one for example:

 

Or even this one:

 

 

So don’t let the fire-storm of vegan debates on social media strain your belief that vegans are constantly on the search for restaurants that serve meals that are appropriate for them. Vegans create beautiful dishes at home and especially with the new trend of vegan transformed soups, which will be sure to make none vegans swoon and drool. Crack open your own can of vegan soup and enjoy!
