I made this soup yesterday and then divided it up for my lunches this week. It was pretty easy to prepare, and is very tasty as well! I'll see how the week goes with eating it, but I think this will be one of my staple soups in the future! emoticon

Hey Terry,

I do season my soup after everything gets warm & the flavors start combining. Usually just salt & pepper though because when you put in alot of extra herbs when you have a mixture of things it can get a little dicey!! I've never really had a disaster because I don't collect things for more than a month before making a soup. Sometimes I have had some veggies or pasta get a little too mushy!! Good luck!!!

Cool! Another Dumpster Soup cook! Hehe!

Say Jeannie, maybe you can help me out here, then. How do you season your d. soup? Do you wait till its cooked and then do the taste test to see what seasonings to use, or do you take the chance and just throw them in early? I'm just curious as to how other folks do it.

Have you ever had a d. soup disaster (where the flavors didn't mesh?) I think that happened to me the very first time I tried to make it. I had put in that "one" ingredient (can't remember what it was) that just ruined the whole pot! But I've had good luck ever since on my other trys. But it's been a long time since I had made it, till just my recent attempt that turned out good.

Yum!! That sounds like a really delicious soup!!
I've made Dumpster Soup all of my life!! HAHA!! It's funny to hear someone else makes it too!
My grandmother always taught me even if you only have a teaspoon of something leftover put it in a container with all of your other leftovers & freeze it, later you can make a soup! We did the for economical reasons but it's always been interesting to see what comes out of it!!

You can make a great soup stock very easily. When you're prepping other food, put the peelings, lopped off ends, onion skins, etc. into a pot with water and simmer it on low for a few hours. Cool and strain out all the bits and pieces and save the liquid for the next time you make soup. You can freeze it if you need to, but soup is such an easy wonderful thing to make that I use mine up right away.

How wild! I was just about to create a topic on soup! But your soup looks far more beautiful and elegant and has a much tastier name than the one I was gonna post, Boni! Mine was to be called "Dumpster Soup"! LOL!!! emoticon

It's a soup idea I heard of on TV from "the cheapest family in America". When their freezer would become clogged with all kinds of stuff, they would empty it out, add some veggies to it, and see what happened. They admitted that usually the soup was good, but a few times the ingredients did "not" work together and had to be tossed out! Thankfully, mine turned out good!!!

It had the weirdest list of ingredients for a soup I had ever used! From the freezer: a pack of veggie bologna, humis and chili that had been in the freezer for months (and needed to be used pretty soon or tossed), froze greens, froze peas, fresh celery, fresh sweet potatoes, and a few other fresh ingredients I can't recall. (And yes, when it was all tossed in the pot it DID look like stuff thrown into a dumpster!) Sounds lousy, right? It turned out great! Tasted good!

But the trick with dumpster soup (I think) is to wait till "after" it's cooked to season it, because it's a mystery as to if it will come out tasting like a sweet soup or a hardy "meaty" soup. I thought with the sweet potatoes it would taste sweet and so even added a teaspoon of agave to a sample of it to see, but then could tell that was the wrong choice. It was not to be a sweet soup! So I added some nutritional yeast, pepper, etc.--wa lah! I now had a hearty tasting soup!

So Dumpster Soup turned out to be fun! Ya just never know what you will end up with!

But I definitly want to try Boni's soup recipe soon, too. I love the green aspect of it--full of anti-oxidents! And creamy--love a creamy soup in winter!!!

Pinned that one! That sounds so good. I wonder if I can make it without my DH seeing the ingredients. He wouldn't eat it otherwise. LOL

Well, when I got up this morning the thermomeer was reading a very cold minus 7. With it being so cold outside, I thought a good soup recipe and home-made bread would be the way to go. Here is a link to a really delicious green soup. myvega.com/blog/2012/morgans-green-soup?ut
