    This is a current favorite for using up the peppers in the garden.
    i stuffed about 2 dozen peppers recently, But wouldn’t have thought to use them in a soup.

    I was taken with the idea of using silken tofu in place of rich cream in cream soups as Roger(?) suggested in a recipe earlier. I discovered that another thickening alternative is cooked cannellini beans blended in. This trying of new ideas makes cooking more interesting and, it seems, probably healthier as well.

    I have made a salmon chowder in the past that's pretty well received. I adapted the recipe from one I saw in the newspaper many years ago. It's not cream-based, which is one reason I like it.

    Salmon Chowder

    3 cups vegetable or chicken broth (low-sodium preferred)
    8 ounces (raw or smoked) salmon, cut in bite-sized pieces (see recipe note below)
    1 pound new or sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
    1/2 cup fennel, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    salt and (white) pepper


    Bring the broth to a boil. Add the remaining ingredients. When the pot starts boiling again, cover it and simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste.


    I've made this with smoked salmon, but I would recommend using less of it because of its stronger taste.

    I just asked DH about the status of leek in our garden. He said it is nearly ready to harvest.

    Leek and potatoe soup is one of my favorites.

    Oh I have to try the salmon chowder, and leek soup is terrific.
    I have an embarrassing soup confession--I just bought the Autumn Squash soup at Sam's Club, which seems to be the same thing as the Panera Autumn butternup squash soup. It is wonderful, for all of us lazy cooks out there.

    I had a roommate years ago who first introduced me to leek and potato soup - LOVED it. Should probably learn how to make it.

    Leek and potato soup is simple. Saute some leeks in butter for a while, add chicken broth and potatoes. Puree once potatoes are soft (I use an immersion blender). Add milk or cream if you want. I also like chopped fresh dill.

    I froze leek for the first time. It should be great in later soups!
