I simply love soup. Ever since I can remember soup has always been such an important dish in our family and family history. As a young girl sitting at my grandmothers dinning table I can still vividly remember her serving her famous and aromatic chicken soup on our friday night dinners.’Soup should be served hot’ and on countless occasions she would send her soup back in restaurants using those specific words. My mother and aunt were great students and introduced all sorts of soups while I was growing up in and around Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Certain religious days, sad and happy, would be linked to special soups and still are today. During illness, heartaches, joyous get togethers of any kind: a soup can always work its magic.
After I gave birth to our three children I grew even more fond of soup which sometimes does result in a “mom, soup again ” . But what dish can beat a nutricious soup? My heart goes out to healthy soups made of all sorts of vegetables in which I can use as little fat as possible. Many soups can be made in a greater amount and can be frozen. Ideal when you’re hosting or would like to have something in your freezer, as well as for a busy day or unexpected visitors.
I hope I can share my enthusiasm with all you soup lovers out there or even better, make you one. Feel free to leave your comment or even better contact me, so I can post your soup recipe too .
Thank you, Claire
