Really Good Soup

I made Really Good Soup for dinner last night. I always crave soup when it’s cold.  I usually improvise soup, but this one turned out so good I decided to write it down:

Chop up an onion and cook it slowly in a big stock pot in a nice lump of butter and a bit of olive oil, until it is soft.  Add three diced potatoes (Russets, of course) and a couple of stalks of celery, chopped.   Cook everything around in the butter for a while, and then add water or broth.  I used frozen turkey broth that I made from our Christmas turkey — about 1.5 quarts, I think.  Open a big can of Italian tomatoes and add them and their juice, and chop up the tomatoes into bite-size pieces. Add a bit of salt and pepper and paprika.  Cover and cook slowly until the potatoes are soft enough.  Drain a can of kidney beans and add them to the soup.  Serve with a spoonful of sour cream stirred in.  Oh LORD it’s good.

    Kayray – I tried a yummy new soup thing. I made split pea soup and added a box of thawed frozen petite peas and then pureed some of the soup. Oh – the frozen little peas made it SOOOO sweet!
