Oh yes, Spanish squid soup is one of the best soups I know, and it’s worth learning the recipe. The recipe features squid of course, and also potatoes, onion and tomato.

Once all the ingredients are in there you need to let it simmer for 3 or 4 hours so the flavors can really meld, and so the squid can tenderize.

This Thai stuffed squid soup recipe is a favorite of mine. It is very special because of its simplicity. Although this Thai stuffed squid soup dish is rarely found on a restaurant menu you quickly and easily prepare it yourself. You need some chicken or pork bouillon, and homemade is best if possible.
If you do not have homemade bouillon then make sure you use a high quality one. The filling for the squid is made with pork, soy sauce, black pepper and garlic, and you will need smallish squid for this, no more than a couple inches long. When you have stuffed the squid it is time to warm up your bouillon and then you poach the squid in there for 8 minutes. Serve it nice and hot.
Comfort Food, Really!
This Thai stuffed squid soup recipe is great if you have a cold or the flu or you just fancy something warming. It is also really quick to make and if you have the baby squid you probably have all the other ingredients too.

Serve this stuffed squid soup as an appetizer or make it for lunch and have it with some salad on the side. If you only have larger squid you can use a couple of those instead but the baby squid gives you a nicer presentation and it just looks more elegant in the bowl. Continue reading
Pumpkin soup is a real favorite in this household but I never buy it, I always make it! There are two main ways to prepare this soup – leaning either towards the savory or towards the sweet. This lightly spiced pumpkin soup appeals to anyone who loves pumpkin and is neither too savory nor too sweet.
Personally I like my pumpkin soup sweet although I add savory ingredients to it such as onion and garlic. Although roasting the pumpkin first is something most people do, if you are in a rush, you could just add it to the pot and let it simmer in the stock until tender. The flavor will not be that different. But if you want the best possible experience do roast it first.
Lightly Spiced Pumpkin Soup Tips
