I'm such a soup nut!! I also like these soups
Creamy Mushroom Soup
1 Tbsp non hydrogenated butter like Smart Balance
1 large onion chopped
1 16 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
15 oz vegetable broth
8 oz white or cremini mushrooms, peeled and sliced
2-3 Tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the butter in a soup pot and add the onion. Saute over medium heat until the onion is golden and soft.
Transfer the onion to a food processor along with the beans. Process until smoothly pureed, add the vegetable broth, and process again briefly.
In the same soup pot, combine the mushrooms with enough water to keep the bottom of the pot moist. Cover and steam the mushrooms until tender 8-10 minutes.
Transfer the food processor mixture back to the soup pot and stir to combine with the mushrooms. Add thyme, salt and pepper to taste.
Chilled Cucumber Soup
3 large cucumbers (about 5 1/2 cups chopped)
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/3 cup nonfat sour cream
2 scallions (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
1. Peel cucumbers, then cut in half lengthwise and scrape out seeds. Using paper towels, blot cucumbers dry, then coarsely chop.
2. In a blender or food processor, combine cucumber, yogurt, sour cream, scallions, lemon juice, and dill. Blend on high speed until smooth. Chill soup at least 6 hours or overnight.
3. Whisk soup to blend. Season with salt. Garnish with more dill, if desired.
