    What's your favorite soup?

    I'm teaching a fall/winter class at a local university on soups. I get to write it from scratch - so what are your favorite soups??

    Hmm, although that's from a few years ago and I use Yukon Gold potatoes now, and usually three rather than two unless they're really big ones.

    My favorite doesn't exactly have a recipe. It's made entirely of root vegetables and so it has carrots, turnips, celery root, parsnips, onions, radishes, potatoes, yams. I usually just get what's in the store at the time and so it can be different from one occasion to the next. You can use chicken stock or beef or vegetable or even just water. Cut them up, throw them in a big pot and cook them until they're a bit soft. As for seasoning . . . salt and pepper, some sriracha sauce and anything else that might work. You make a batch of that and it can be a main course or a side dish with a sandwich. It'll take me a week to work through a batch.

    Sounds delish ;) Radishes I've never included, but I do a similar root veggie variation. I might try radishes!

    thanks Abner! I've got an amazing veggie beef that was inspired by my grandmother. I was born and raised in the midwest, so I never did develop a knack for making a good chowder.
