Soup-ggestions?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just out of hospital and limited diet. I have been living off of toast and peanut butter or eggs. Was going to attempt a veggie soup but then was told to avoid the acid from tomatoes. Has anyone ever made a tasty veg soup without tomatoes, or do you have any other options you would recommend? I'm trying to keep meat out of the mix too, but everything else is free game as far as I know including dairy. I'm not a picky eater; just trying to put something else lite in my stomach that isn't toast until my appetite is back to normal... and I love soup!

Buy some veggie stock. Or make it yourself. Whichever warm it up, throw in some slivers of fresh ginger and garlic. Some chunks of lemongrass if you have it, dried red chilies if desired. After simmering for 10 minutes or so, fish out those bits. Throw in some sliced mushrooms and a healthy dose of soy sauce. Pour into a bowl and garnish with chopped scallions.

Sounds delish, teamfat. I might use your suggestion and include sprouts with rice noodles and cilantro- kind of like a pho idea. Thanks!

Sorry to hear it, Pepper.

 

Chicken noodle soup.comes to mind. Chicken broth, carrots, celery, onion, fresh dill or parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice. Broil some chicken breasts.  Heat some homemade or storebought chicken broth & add veggies of choice.  Add your noodle at the end.  If you're not up to making it from scratch, here's a quick method:

Chicken pot pie soup - bake a pie crust, cool, break up, and add to a creamy chicken base with carrots, peas, etc.

 

Ribollita or bread soup - perhaps sub the tomatoes w a tbl or so of tomato paste.

 

Greek lemon (with orzo) or eggdrop soup is easy on the tummy and soothing.Add in bok choy or cabbage, or whatever you like.

 

Mac and cheese (w broccoli) or broccoli cheese soup is another way to go.

 

French onion soup is another thought.

Thanks for the suggestions! The idea of egg drop soup appealed to me most because it seemed light and tasty. That will probably be my next venture as I'm still not able to handle anything with too much going on. Will definitely bookmark all other suggestions for future though!
