This is one that I really like. I don't know if I can say it is my favorite because I have some many that I enjoy, but this one is up near the top :)

Chorizo Leek and Potato Soup

2 tablespoons evoo
4 cloves garlic
1 onion – rough chop
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
5 cups vegi stock
12 oz. Potato peeled and fine chop
15 oz. Chickpeas drained
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2/3 cup heavy cream (I usually use light though)
2 tablespoons tahini
1 leek – green and white parts (clean well)
1 package chorizo
salt and pepper
Cayenne pepper

Heat oil in large pot and cook garlic, onion, leek, and chorizo till softened and golden brown (5 minutes or so).

Stir in cumin and coriander and cook for another minute.

Pour in stock and potato and chickpeas. Cook till tender.

Blend cornstarch, cream (cold), tahini, salt and pepper and stir into the soup.

Bring to boil then lower heat to simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes.

Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

I like to make black bean soup. I don't exactly have a recipe, but this is about how I do it.

I put a hambone, or ham hock, or smoked joe bacon in a pot with water and a can of chicken broth. I simmer for an hour or so with some chopped onion, a little garlic, a bay leaf, a tablespoon or two of tomato paste, red pepper flakes, and some celery. Then I add my pre-soaked black beans and cook til tender.

I remove the hambone, remove the meat, and return the meat to the pot. I check for seasoning and correct. Then I serve with cornbread, a salad, and a dollop of sour cream or salsa.

Carrot soup

9 oz of carrots ( chopped fine )
1 large onion ( chopped fine )
chicken stock
salt and black pepper

Fry the onion and the carrot in plenty of butter until they begin to get soft.
Transfer the carrots and the onion to a pot
pour in chicken stock ( approx 1 quart )
simmer slow and season with lots of fresh ground black pepper and some salt
When done remove from the heat and blend in mixer
Add cream and heat gently before serving

Note: If you wanna spice it up you can add cilantro into this soup! The flavour goes very well with the carrots.

Definately bean soups, chicken gumbo, chicken and dumplings, fish-based soups, potato soups, cheddar soups, squash soups, french onion soup, beef stew...I can truly say that I've yet to meet a soup I didn't like!

Carrot soup...a definite yum, leaf!

GB, yours calls strongly to me, too!

curried carrot soup
-simmer carrots till very tender in Kosher-salted-water.
-save some cooking water.
-set both aside to cool.
-saute onion and smashed garlic in butter/olive oil and add minced shallot at the last minute. season w/ white pepper, curry paste (i use green), and transfer to blender with a little cooking liquid and carrots. grind till still has plenty of texture and is grainy. begin adding heavy cream and pulsing the grind button. season lightly with fine seasalt.
-when smooth but still grainy, transfer to serving bowls. swirl in a little extra cream and garnish with scallions or chives. can be served warm or chilled.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

By the way, toku, what does your signature mean? All I can make out is "smile away" at the end? And I may be way, way wrong there!
