Homemade Chicken-Veggie Soup

I turned 43 today and my mother made me her famous homemade chicken-veggie soup.  Of course after my open heart surgery, there's no salt, made with unsalted stock, etc so it was bland at first but I had a salt substitute so it was still yummy.  She made a huge batch of it and froze them into ziploc bags so I'm all set for a while.

 

I don't know what it is but I always feel better after this soup.  Any of you feel this way about homemade soup?

I rarely like soup, and my mom has somehow forgotten how to cook so I can never have my childhood favorites. I used to love her meatloaf, and she would always cook it in a big pan surrounded by carrots and potatoes. She made it for me a couple of years ago and the meatloaf was burned to a crisp and the veggies were completely raw. So basically the carrots were the only edible part.

Ericka put together a fabulous copycat Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli recipe about 10 years ago that I still love. But now I make it with turkey and leave out the crushed red pepper because kids. My kids love it, they say it's the one thing I can cook other than frozen pizza. 🤣

I also have a pumpkin chili recipe that I think I got from Jess back in the day that I've passed around to friends. I got the spice perfect once and haven't been able to replicate it.

I'm not a huge soup eater. Though I have a soft spot for pumpkin soup, and soups involving root vegetables. Carrot and coriander soup is pretty good. But only in winter, and with a big crusty loaf of sourdough and butter.

Mmmmmm soup and bread and butter

My Dad once made me Cream of Mushroom & Brie soup.  It was pretty much the most amazing thing I've ever had.  It probably clogged one of my arteries lol.   

 

My mom also made me turkey chili and it's really good considering it's turkey instead of ground beef.  She didn't use any salt for my condition so I use Mrs. Dash Table Blend seasoning and that does the trick.  She has one of those Instapot things and used it for the chili so she was able to crank it out pretty quickly.


And LOL @ Seth

Before my Grandmother died, she dictated a bunch of recipes to me including her Meatloaf recipe, which is flawless and easy to make.  I have it typed up if you're interested in making it.

I would love it! I’m on a super low-fat diet right now, but I am all about eating meatloaf when possible.

I've since replaced the white american with provolone cheese.  Everything else I kept and have made it like 15+ times over the years

Screenshot taken, thank you.

I made a gigantic (as in starting with 4c of dry lentils) pot of curried lentil carrot soup that Im going to simmer all day. You all have to come over and help me eat it.

That sounds like amazing soup!  My dad loved lentil soup more than anything.  Hell, he loved the crap out of lentils period.  He used to cook them a hundred different ways.

I grew up Seventh-Day Adventist vegetarian, and I completely understand that.

I'm still eating chicken and turkey but I gave up beef and pork.  I would like to eventually cut out the poultry but one step at a time

I love soup. It's cold and dark here early this year, so soup weather is early, too.

 

I have a fabulous lentil soup recipe I'll post when i get home

Ew. Lentils and legumes. I do fish three times a week. But mostly chicken is the protein.
