LMAO pdswife! I like it!

Thanks for the info buckytom. I can get the pecorino romano. Just never heard of locatelli. Just one more reason to love this place. I learn at least one thing every day.

My quickest (and one of my favorites) is 1 lb ground sirloin, browned and drained (or made into meatballs, browned and drained). A large can of tomatoes, squished, a package of frozen veggies (corn, beans, carrots, etc) a package of seasoning veggies (celery, onions, etc) a handful of macaroni, or rice, or a potato cut into cubes. Cook for about 30 minutes and season to taste. Serve with cornbread. PS - you may need to add a bit of water to the right consistency.

My husband has you two beat - open can and eat soup out of can - EVEN cream of whatever -

I'd say my quickest soup is

equal parts tomato sauce and cream
fresh thyme sprigs
heat but do not boil until thyme flavor imparts (about 30 or so minutes on a lower heat)

Remove fresh thyme sprigs
Add basil chiffonade and heat for about 10 minutes.

It's easy and it hits the spot!!

just make sure you don't buy condensed soup!

i did that once on a winter snowshoe/backpacking trip. i brought a big can of clam chowder. after heating it in the fire, i tried to eat it as is, from the can. it was so thick and salty; it was pretty bad. then i realized that it was supposed to be mixed with a can of water. unfortunately, i didn't bring a mess kit, so i had no way to add the water, so i just ate it while drinking a lot of water...

Ok then, here's a serious recipe then that I've simplified and is actually is fairly quick and easy to make.


Asparagus Soup "Cappucino" with Truffle Foam

Yield: approx 4-6 servings

Ingredients:

For the Soup:

1 lb. Fresh, good quality Asparagus Spears
3 c. Chicken or Vegetable stock, heated to a simmer
1 c. Heavy Cream, scalded
Kosher Salt to Taste

For the Truffle Foam:

1/2 c. Heavy Cream
2-3 Tbsp. Truffle Oil

Method:

For the Soup:
Heat all liquids accordingly. Cut off fiberous ends of the aspargus and blanch in lightly salted boiling water until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Drain well (do not shock in cold water), cut into 1" pieces, and add to a blender. Add the stock and puree until smooth. Add the heavy cream and puree until blended and smooth. Season to taste with the salt and strain through a cheesecloth or fine sieve. Reheat if not serving immediately, but do not boil.

For the Truffle Foam:
Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan until scalded. Add the truffle oil and gently mix until the oil is incorporated into the cream. Transfer truffle-cream into a CO2 cannister, or use a frother to foam. Use immediately.

To Serve:
Portion the soup into 4-6 cappucino/coffee mugs. Spoon/spray the truffle foam evenly over each portion. Serve immediately.
