Cook with Us #27 - Post Your Entry Here

in #cookwithuslast year (edited)

Cook with Us #27 Theme: Soup

Soup is so many things. It is warmth when you are cold. It is medicine when you are sick. Soup can be refreshing and cooling when you are hot. It is comforting and restorative. Soup can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Soup can be pureed, chunky, creamy, thin, spicy or bland. Above everything, soup is nourishing and familiar to all people.

This week the Cook with Us team would like to experience your favorite homemade soup from your unique point of view. Tell us the story behind this soup and what this meal means to you when you have it. When and why do you prepare this soup? For whom do you prepare this soup? Or maybe someone prepares this soup for you? Have fun this week and share with the CwU community a little bit of your culinary story.

A huge thanks to @curie and @sneaky-ninja's sponsorship which made Season Three possible!

There are few things better on a cool fall day (or anytime really) than a nice bowl soup. And, I was so looking forward to sharing one of my favorite regional soups with the Cook With Us family. Unfortunately, it is not to be. Somehow, I managed to fall up the stairs and sprained my knee. Swelling and pain kept me off my feet most of the day. And, Sunday dinner was take-out Chinese instead of the pot of homemade soup I was savoring. Oh well, I will just spend the rest of the evening salivating over all the delicious looking entries for this weeks soup competition. All the best and I hope to be back in the kitchen for next week's competition.

Omg, I am so sorry. Take good care of yourself and get well soon. We will see you in the near future.

Sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you have a quick recovery!

I hope you feel better soon xx

Ah we'll miss your lovely recipe - but get well soon

Delicious consomme Eden

Soup’s definitely on. Thank you for your entry @plantstoplanks!

@Plantstoplanks, as always, just YUM!!! I'm heading over to check out your recipe now. Looks so flavorful!

I absolutely love a comforting bowl of soup. Can't wait to see all the creative takes on this comfort food!

I also love soup and have been looking forward to this week for a long time!

Hello Everyone,

Good luck to everyone.

Beautiful presentation, @foodforsoul. What an intriguing combination! Looks deliciously elegant!

Hey Mo, You have so many incredible soups in Thailand! I would do anything for a bowl of boat noodles or khao soi right now!

Looks delicious @lizelle! Best of luck!

We justed posted our favorite soup recipe, and saw the contest an hour later. 🤣 Next time!

I'm sure you could post it here as well. Just make the first tag cookwithus and vary the post slightly - we'd love to include your recipe. If you could just add a proof photograph (you only have to do this the first time and vote for this post and resteem it to qualify

I would, @pandamama, but unfortunately steemit doesn't let you change the main tag, just the other four.. Would you be ok with it being the second tag or is that against your rules? Love and light.😊

Yes, we can allow the #cookwithus tag to be the second for this time. Thank you @ambrosiacafe!

My favorite soup is chicken although I usually eat a little soup but I'm interested to see what soups will be this week

I do not do very well cooking soup I still do not grab that point of how I like to eat it thick and with lots of vegetables

Yum! My favorite. I can't wait to see all the entries.

Mmmm soup! I will see what I can come up with ;)
