My soups are "ad lib" (but then, so is most of my cooking). I like using orzo or quinoa in soups.

I like to add a can of hominy to my soup. It reheats better than pasta or rice.

Just tried DD's soup. With the hint of ginger mingling with each spoonful of rustic veggies, this soup is really, really good. It is low sodium (compared to canned soups) to boot. The soup is so flavorful that you don't miss the salt at all. In fact, it's better because there is minimal salt. All of the fresh flavors come through. Be forewarned though. It does have a spicy kick, though it has no hot peppers in it. P.A.G. thinks it comes from the ginger. I'm not sure where it comes from. But it sure is good. Thanks for a great lunch DDOM (dear daughter of mine).

That and The New Covent Garden's Co's Winter Vegetable... ah, good times.
Sound great, right up my ally! I make a white sweet potato and garam masala soup, sounds like this may have a similar taste. I will try the parsnip when you post the recipe for sure!

My soups are like my chili... ad lib. I use whatever is available from the refrigerator, and I add spices by the pinch rather than by the measuring spoon.

Yeah, my veggie soups, minestrones, etc., tend to be ad lib too. Pretty much "everything but the kitchen sink" kind of affairs. I've yet to have one turn out badly.
