Your QUICKEST soup recipe

Here's mine:

Broccoli Corn Chowder

1 lb. frozen hash brown potato cubes
1 head broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tbsp butter, divided
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cans creamed corn
2 cans evaporated milk
1 lb. cooked chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
cheddar cheese, grated

Put potatoes in a soup kettle, and add drinking water till just covered. Heat on high, stirring now and then till it is boiling. Meanwhile, put broccoli and 1 tbsp butter into microwave in a covered dish. Cook about 5-8 minutes, till somewhat tender.
Add broccoli to potatoes, then mix in remaining ingredients. Heat thoroughly. (add salt & pepper if needed) Top each individual bowl with a handful of grated cheddar cheese.

Quick Shrimp Bisque

4 tbsp butter
1 carrot diced small
1 celery stalk diced
1 shallot diced
12 large UNPEELED shrimp
1 tsp chopped chives
5 tbsp flour
4 cups stock (I use boiling water and a pkg of shrimp flavouring from a Mr Noodle pkg)
1/2 cup hot light cream
salt and pepper to taste

Place butter, veggies and shrimp into casserole dish. Microwave for 8 minutes. Remove shrimp and shell. Set shrimp and shells aside. Add seasonings and flour to the veggies, mix well. Place stock and shrimp shells in casserole. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes. Chop shrimp while this cooks. Pass mixture through sieve with pestle and pour into tureen, add chopped shrimp and heated cream. Heat uncovered for 2 minutes. Season and garnish to taste.
Serves 4 as an appetizer, 2 as a lunch meal.

Alix - I've never cooked shrimp (don't eat seafood) but this is something my son may like. Here's a silly question though - Are the shells in the stock to add flavor to it? and is that why you pass it through a sieve?
Thanks!

Yes to the shells in stock question. The pestle also squishes the veggies so that everything is nice and smooth.

I think you could make this using chicken if you wanted to. It would be a nice creamy chicken soup. Mmmmm, I think I may try that one myself now.

lol jkath. because of the title, i read your recipe like the guy who reads the legal disclaimers at the end of commercials. (i wonder if he ever uses up all of his cell phone minutes? )

:

my fastest soup would be escarole e fagiole.

3 tbsps evoo
7 cloves of garlic
1 head of escarole, washed and chopped
1 large can of cannelini beans
2 large cans of chicken or veggie stock
sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper
hunk o' locatelli cheese
crusty italian bread

thin slice (not smashed and chopped) 7 large cloves of garlic. put 3 tablespoons of evoo in a kettle on medium heat. sautee the garlic until golden. add escarole, beans, and stock (and enough water to cover if necessary). bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes or so, until the escarole is limp. add salt and pepper to taste. when serving, shave a healthy amount of locatelli cheese over the soup, drizzle with a little more evoo, and serve with crusty bread and sweet butter.

Mom's Chicken Noodle

2 C Chicken Broth
2-3 Nests of Angel hair pasta
1 Egg
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and Pepper.

Bring the broth to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until done. Season with S&P.

Separately, whisk the egg and lemon juice together.

When the noodles are cooked, add the broth and noodles to the egg mixture, using the tempering process to prevent curdling.

Adjust seasonings and serve.

hi alix. locatelli is a brand of pecorino romano cheese. it's like a sharp parmesan cheese, so i guess a hard parmesan would be the best substitute.
here are a few links about pecorino romano cheeses.
