  Re: (...)
My daughter, Holly, was telling me the other day how thrilled her daughter was to find hot soup in her thermos for lunch. So, she was looking for some easy soup ideas.

Maryann, I didn't find the Lasagna Soup to be all that involved (if made the night before). That's all I can think of...don't do many soups.

There's one we do in the winter using ground beef, a large can of tomato juice, a couple cans of mixed veggies and a couple of corn...whatever you like, and a quarter cup of sugar. Salt and pepper to taste. We also found that a package of Good Season's Italian seasoning mix to add a good flavor as well. This idea came from our cafeteria lady back when school lunches were good. I don't know if you'd call either of these quick...especially if she's looking for something she could whip up in the morning.

Thank you both! It's funny, I make all kinds of soups, but when my own daughter asks me for some easy recipes, I went blank.

Found one last night for a cheeseburger chowder that sounded good, and a tuscan bean with chicken soup. If they turn out to be good, I'll post both.

This is quick and really good. I usually use chicken potstickers from Trader Joe's, but you can use any brand/ flavor:

Potsticker Soup




Recipe By: Vicci

Servings: 2 Preparation Time :0:20


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


2 1/2 cups low-sodium defatted chicken broth

2/3 cup water

1/4 teaspoon minced ginger

1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

1/8 teaspoon oriental hot sauce -- (sambal oelek is a good choice)

1 large carrot -- split lengthwise and sliced diagonally

3/4 cup thinly sliced green cabbage -- any kind, but I prefer Napa or Bok Choy (or sub shredded snow peas)

2 large green onions -- slice all but keep the green tops separate (for garnish)

12 whole Trader Joe's Chicken Gyoza Potstickers, unthawed

1 teaspoon arrowroot -- mixed with 1 teaspoon water, optional

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil


Bring the broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepot. Add the ginger, garlic, hot sauce, carrot, and cabbage.


Turn down the heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add the green onion WHITES and the potstickers, turn up the heat to return to a boil, then turn the heat back down, partially cover, and cook until the potstickers are tender (TJ's directions say about 2-3 minutes)


If a slightly thicker broth is desired, add the arrowroot-and-water mixture and stir until thickened. Turn off heat and stir in the sesame oil. Divide between two deep bowls, sprinkle with the reserved sliced green onion tops. Dust with a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper.

My new favorite quick soup is from Weeknight Menus...Cannellini Bean and Sausage Soup. So simple and delicious. Let me know if you'd like me to post it.

Most soups are relatively easy. Some just take a little extra prep (e.g. scraping down the corn for corn chowder).

Erin's green bean soup is VERY easy, and has become one of my new favourites.

An old stand-by for me is egg drop soup. I usually make it after boiling a whole, frozen chicken, but if you already have chicken stock ready. it would be even easier. Just bring three quarts of chicken stock to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and adjust the seasonings. Nest, stir in about a tablespoon of sesame oil (that's the secret that makes a world of difference - don't forget it!). Finally, VERY lightly beat four eggs and, as you are stirring the stock VERY SLOWLY without changing direction, add the eggs and continue to stir the soup VERY SLOWLY for one more minute, and it's done! Couldn't be much easier!
