  • What do you eat with soup?

    I like my soup with a huge hunk of crusty bread slathered in butter. It makes it a meal. What do you eat with soup?

    The bowl. I lick it clean.

      It depends on the soup. If it's my friend's wonderful yam and garlic soup or something similar, I like good sausages with it. Other soups I might pair with a salad.

        To me, soup is a meal in a bowl and doesn't need anything else. I think it just takes a while to change your mindset when you are used to things a certain way (like tortillas with Mexican food).

          It's going to be chicken soup with stock made from the bones of tomorrow's chicken dinner, and whatever chicken is left. But it won't be much chicken, and it will have veggies, but it won't be enough to fill us all up. I need something more.

            We've labeled my soups "stoup" halfway between stew and soup, because you could practically eat them with a fork most of the time. Occasionally I miss bread, but a serious soup with chunky bits doesn't need it. Sometimes I put a dob of butter in the middle just before I serve, so you get that lovely salty butteryness.

              Pork rinds/cracklings make good croutons and a roasted squash (or raw mushrooms, actually) work pretty well for mopping up the bowl.

                If you're into substitutions/baking with almond flour, I highly recommend Purely Primal's Almond Muffins. Be careful though, it's easy to overeat them and end up all bloaty. But yum!

                  More soup or, if necessary, bacon.

                    This was one of the things that took me a little while to adapt to...the lack of sponge-like primal foods to mop up sauces. Now I'm with Dr Bork Bork...bowl licking has taken over as the soup ritual

                      I was raised on "soup" from a can, usually with a Campbell's label on it, and as such I believed strongly my entire life that soup was at best a watery, lightly flavored, salty addition to a hearty grilled cheese sandwich.

                      Then I made soup with homemade bone broth, including lots of fat, lots of gelatin, lots of meat and fresh veggies. Suddenly I understood how soup could be a meal in itself. Good soup doesn't need a side dish. Bread would only ruin it.

                        I sometimes eat broth soups with some cheese cubes (ie, Cock-a-leekie soup with Havarti cheese), YUM.

                        Also Pumpkin soup is a wonderful side to a big juicy steak.

                          You must either have really shallow bowls, or a really big tongue.

                          There's no way I could lick my bowls clean. They're too deep

                          I marinade some meat before doing the soup so it's ready to grill right after.

                            the answer is always: meat and vegetables.

                              It took me a while to get used to the idea of soup without bread as well and to realise it could fill me up. I do add plenty of meat and veg so my soups are quite chunky and I often top them with a sprinkling of grated cheese.
                              Without the bread, I don't get that stuffed "full" feeling but I no longer feel hungry after a big bowl full and if I wait ten minutes or so after eating i realise I am actually satisfied. Soups made with bone broth are particularly satisfying.

                              If I am still hungry after soup, I will have more primal food. Maybe some cold meat and salad, a handful of olives or some berries with heavy cream.
