Re: soup

HELP!!! I just burned the bottom of the fresh chicken vegetable soup I've been "creating" all morning! Now, the whole stock tastes "smoky". Is there ANYTHING I can do to remove the taste? It had such incredible potential!

I don't think there's anything you can do to remove the burned flavour. You could however add some curry to it + cream if it's not already creamy. The curry should cover up the smoky taste.

Ironchef, I can get some wonderful wild mushrooms on a regular basis and would love to have your recipe. All of them seem delicious and you make it really hard to choose!

Janet - I hope it's not too late but DO NOT STIR YOUR SOUP - pour into a new pot and do not touch the burned spot on the bottom - place chunks of whole onion skins on top of the soup and let them sit there for awhile. When I have burned rice this has always worked - it leaves only a slight "onion flavor" to the rice and in the soup I know it won't hurt the flavor. The key is to not stir it - just pour into a new pot - place skins on top - wait about an hour I guess - see if that helps - other than that I'm not sure what to do.

burnt soup answers

Kitchenelf- I'm off to add the onion skins to the top of the soup pot. I actually didn't stir it, not knowing what the remedy might be. I sure hope it works! It was about 12 hours in the "simmering" - it's actually the risotto that I added during the last 30-40 minutes that burned, I believe. When I take the top off, I'll find out for sure, but regardless, thank you very much!! :D

I bet it was the risotto - it probably sunk to the bottom. Be sure and pour out into a new pot first. Let me know if it helped at all - I'm curious.

Soup

If you want to try other ethnic soups there is a delightful site with all kinds of different recipes. BTW the curried mussels sound wonderful. I have some mild yet flavorful curry that would be great to use in it.

Here is the site:

Thanks. Most of my soup recipes are altered recipes that I have usually obtained from the net or cookbooks. I generally make changes as I go along, so I usually never know the quantities of the ingredients I use. However the other night I made lentil soup and remember the quantities of the ingredients. It is probably the simplest soup I've prepared for a while and it easy to throw together at the end of a work day. The person who gave me the recipe is from lebanon and used to have a cafe here in No. Ca., DH loved her soup too and liked mine as well. I used my crock pot for cooking the lentils. Eventually I'd like to perfect it so I can have lentil soup for my lunches.

1 c. dried brown lentils
1 1/2 c. stock veggie or chicken
1 tbls. olive oil (I use very little but use olive oil spray instead)
1 chopped onion
1 diced stalk celery
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. toasted Cumin seeds
Ground Cumin (approx. 2 teaspoons) and fresh ground pepper to taste
Juice of one lemon

Cook lentils and stock 6 hrs. in crockpot (low setting).
Saute veggies and cumin seed till they sweat and are soft. Put veggies and lentils with broth in a 1 or 2 quart pot. Puree with hand blender (or regular blender) until smooth then adjust seasoning. Stir in lemon juice just before serving. Makes 4 servings, I think, DH ate all but one cup, so I don't know the exact amount
