By and far a staple through winter and the chilly, early spring. Such an easy and flavorful recipe that takes well to substitutions.
Just wanted to say this was an excellent recipe! Thank you! My husband told me it was the best soup I’ve ever made. (I’m not much of a cook.) I used only a small onion because he’s sensitive to onions, and I used a little extra mushrooms. Otherwise, I followed it closely. Used some good artisan bread. Really enjoyed it! Thanks.
I meant to add, that obviously without the stock, I use up a lot more onions for this. And instead of wine (or in addition to wine, depending on how I’m feeling) I use some brandy. Super easy, super delicious!
Oh man, how I love a panade. I don’t even use stock most of the time, I just caramelize the onions as if you were making a french onion soup (a la Ruhlman – without beef stock or stock at all!), then I proceed just as you do, only with water. It takes a little more time, but I hate to use up my homemade stock when I don’t have to :)
I made this soup with the vegetable stock you posted earlier and it was absolutely amazing. Just the right meal for the single digit temperatures we have right now here in New Hampshire.
Thanks for coming up with this veg delicious soup recipe.I love to add little spinach too.
I love this recipe, except for the honey. A tablespoon sounds like a lot — is the sweetness very pronounced? (I really don’t like sweet flavors very much.)
No, the sweetness is not pronounced. The honey is there for the flavor and for the balance that a little sweetness brings to the soup. ~Elise
Is there a big difference between swiss chard and kale? I happen to have some kale and was wondering if I could try it in this delicious sounding recipe!
Swiss chard is more delicate than kale and takes less time to cook. You could try this with kale. I would chop the leaves finer. ~Elise
Since childhood the thought of soggy bread in anything, turns me off. (Steamed bread & butter pudding gave me nightmares!)
I adapted that part and made it with nice crispy toasted cheese croutons added at the end…Yum
When I saw bread soup I almost wasn’t there but, so glad I persevered!!!!!!!!!
