Making turkey stock today & then some kind of soup.
This weekend people started directly sending me pictures of their friends’ turkey stock. I’m enjoying this new phase in my personal brand.
I want some awesome soup recipes that are good for freezing. I’d especially like a good split pea recipe, but anything hearty and perfect for winter would be wonderful. I’m looking at a few of you in particular *COUGH* Rachel *COUGH* because I know you are royalty in regards to soup.
I would also like a good split pea! Left to my own devices I usually just do chicken noodle, lentil, or sweet potato. Internet?
Stock tip: Pretty much anything you find in your fridge works in lentil soup. This one has leftover brown rice and half a lemon.
Remind me if you were interested in writing/drawing/photographing something for a zine celebrating soup?
This is how I make chicken soup.
Potentially controversial things:
- I like to roast the chicken parts in the oven first.
- I do not like carrots and celery.
- I like my chicken very shredded.
- Shallots are better than onions.
- Eating the fat is better than skimming it off.
Someday I will write out all the steps, but today I will eat another bowl and watch Parks & Rec.
I’m not sick, I’m not sick, I’M NOT SICK.
I’m sick. But this is how I’m going to fix it. Spicy black bean soup with kale, topped with an enormous dollop of homemade guacamole. I will eat this, read The Most of Nora Ephron, and be well again.
Man, she makes being sick sound pretty great right about now…
Serious question: is this soup worth showing off to Rachel Fershleiser?
Poach your chicken for a long time with a whole onion or two and a bunch of peppercorns.
pull the chicken, pick it, strain the stock, de-grease as needed.
add back chopped cherry bomb peppers, that one ancho you had, mushrooms, spinach, the chicken meat.
Season with the juice of two limes, lots of soy sauce, a splash of worcester, a splash of fish sauce (secret weapon of awesome), thai fried chili oil (obvious weapon of awesome), salt and pepper.
garnish with tomato and chopped cilantro.
Contemplate posting your soup to tumblr before you even get to eat it. But Victoria’s making happy soup-y noises, so I’m pretty optimistic.
Can someone please TELL KEVIN why this soup recipe is UNACCEPTABLE?!?
I made chicken soup! This is the first time I’ve made my own broth. I’m feeling pretty badass right now.
