  • Camille3344  on  2/10/2017 at 10:51 AM

    I must say that the best soup might be the most simple... Leek + potato with a good dash of pepper and, when I want to "up my game" a little, a good glug of white wine. Just lovely.

    Old school split pea with ham, especially cooked in my pressure cooker. I'm also a fan of tortilla/enchilada soup, but it's got to be creamy. Same with chicken soup, creamy and filled with chunks of celery, carrots and mushrooms is best, better than noodles any day.
