So for the holidays I got the ' Mother of all soup pots'. Im dying to try it out, but for some bizarre reason, I dont feel like making any of the current soups that i usually make. I dont know why, but I guess im looking for something new.
Being a vegetarian, guidelines include no meat ( beef, poultry,pork,lard, veal, fish...) Including their stocks.
( I do have and use some fake ' chicken' broth ( bouillon ) that I use as a base. Other than meat, Im pretty good at getting around non vegetarian ingredients, so all suggestions are welcome.
Cheese, and other dairy products are fine ( butter, cream, milk)
Soups I usually make, but just not in the mood to make are ( Minestrone, Mushroom barley, pea, vegetable ( tomato based), matzoh Ball, Borcht, vichysoise (sp), Creamy potato/ barley, Ribollita.
I guess Im just looking for new ideas. Recipes or even just suggestions are welcome. I especially like trying things from different regions with new ingredients or flavor profiles Im not familiar with.
My new empty soup pot awaits your ideas
Thanks in advance,
