I used to hate soup. It's a between food, and I don't like between foods. "Between foods" are things like soups, stews, chili, slushies, and smoothies--things that aren't exactly drink, but aren't quite solids... they frustrate me.
But I discovered a few years ago that if the between foods taste amazing, I can deal with my aversion to their texture/form. So there are smoothies, stews, and soups that I put up with for the sake of their flavor--I just have to find which ones they are. This post is dedicated to soups I have enjoyed!
Curried things are always good, like this yellow split pea soup, seasoned with curry powder (homemade, of course, to omit the cayenne):
Appetite for Reduction also has a good butternut squash and apple soup:
the husband had to have the leftovers because I was souped out.
In the same vein, here's a chickpea and carrot soup that was great because it tasted like falafel. (I added shredded lettuce at the end, which is why there are unflattering green lumps. But the lettuce added to the "falafel sandwich" taste!)
You know what soup I never get tired of?
I also love The Gluttonous Vegan's sweet potato soup.
And one thing I discovered while preparing for this entry is that apparently I really love cream of broccoli soup.
I discovered on The Kitchn.
Finally, a German-style cabbage soup that I served with seitan sausages.
Do you like soup? How about other "between" foods? What are your favorites?
