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).

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.
More soup or, if necessary, bacon.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

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
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
