Before this beautiful winter season comes to an end, I wanted to post a couple more soup recipes that I have made.  They are two very different recipes and two delicious soups.

Kielbasa-Cheese SoupKal-Soup

1/4 cup butter

1 large onion, halved & thinly sliced

1 cup sliced celery (2 stalks)

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

3/4 tsp dry mustard

1-14.5 oz can chicken broth

3 cups peeled and cubbed potatoes (3 med-I used red skin)

8 oz cooked kielbasa, sliced 1/4 in thick (we used uncooked polish sausage and cooked/crumbled ourselves)

1 cup chopped carrots (2 medium)

3 1/4 cups milk

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (12 oz)

Cook onion and celery with butter until tender.  Stir in flour, Worcestershire sauce & dry mustard.  Stir 2 minutes and gradualy stir in broth.  Add potatoes, sausage & carrots.  Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer about 20 mintes.  Stir in milk and pepper.  Cook and stir till it barely comes to a boil.  Reduce heat and gradually add the cheese, stirring until melted.

Sprinkle each serving with additional cheese and pepper.

Thai Chicken-Noodle SoupThai-Soup

1 cup canned crushed tomatoes (1 cup – not the whole can!)

1/2 cup chunky peanut butter

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken thights (or any kind of chicken meat) cut into 1-inch pieces

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp grated fresh ginger (or 1 tsp ground ginger

1 T sesame oil

6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 tsp fish sauce

3 oz dried rice noodles, broken if desired

2 cups shredded green cabbage

1 cup canned bean sprouts, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup chopped green onions (2)

snipped fresh cilantro (opt)

coarsely chopped peanuts (opt)

Combine 1 cup tomato and peanut butter in a small bowl.

Cook chicken, garlic and ginger in hot oil about 5 min, till chicken is brown.  Stir in tomato mixture.  Add broth and fish sauce.  Bring to boil  Stir in noodles, reduce heat.  Simmer 5 min.  Stir in cabbage.  Simmer 5 min more and remove from heat.  Stir in bean sprouts and green onions.

Ladle soup in bowls and top with cilantro and peanuts if desired.  (I think the cilantro added a nice flavor to the overall soup)

Both recipes from Better Homes & Gardens – Soups and Stews
