Our Top Soup-a-Palooza Picks

If you have a great soup recipe you think others would enjoy or if you like to find new soup recipes to help warm you up on cold winter days, you will want to take a peek at the Soup-a-Palooza blog event we participated in today. It has been fun to see all of the taste-bud-tempting soup recipes that have been shared throughout the day, over 150 of them so far. We thought it would be fun to share our top picks (keep in mind recipes can be submitted through Sunday, February 20th):

The Chef’s Top Picks:

5) Lemony Chicken Noodle Soup (#113) by From the Little Yellow Kitchen

4) African Chicken Peanut Stew (#34) by Bibberche

3) Coconut Chicken Curry (#13) by GOODLIFE eats

2) Spinach, Tomato and Lentil Soup (#112) by Aggie’s Kitchen

and… drum roll, please!

1) Thai Chicken Soup (#142) by My Sweet and Savory

You will notice that we have three of the same top picks, but I could not stop with just 5!

The Lucky Wife’s Top Picks:

7) Napa and Pork Ball Soup (#70) by Engineer and an Oven

6) Roasted Eggplant Soup with Goat Cheese (#138) by Chaya’s Comfy Cook Blog

5) Tuscan Chickpea Soup (#102) by Mouth from the South

4) Lemony Chicken Noodle Soup (#113) by From the Little Yellow Kitchen

3) Spinach, Tomato and Lentil Soup (#112) by Aggie’s Kitchen: so many recipes, not enough time… (had to include that part because I could not have said it better myself!)

2) Crockpot Steak Soup (#67) by Gray Cardigan

and… drum roll, please!

1) African Chicken Peanut Stew (#34) by Bibberche

These top picks are based on what sounded interesting or good based on our person likes/dislikes. For example, I have only eaten eggplant once in my life and would love to try a new recipe with eggplant. What better way than in a soup, I figured? We love trying recipes from other types of cultures, hence, the inclusion of the African Chicken Peanut Stew, Napa and Pork Ball Soup, Coconut Chicken Curry, and Thai Chicken Soup. One of my favorite foods is steak, and I’m a big fan of lemon flavor in dishes. We enjoy hummus also, so I thought the chickpea soup would be interesting to try as well.

We now have some new recipes to try out over the next few weeks and will report back with our thoughts after we’ve had a chance to taste-test them. With over 150 soup recipes, there is surely something for everyone at today’s Soup-a-Palooza.
