Louis P. De Gouy, ‘The Soup Book’ (1949)
It’s true, for most people, the mere mention of soup conjures up positive feelings of warmth and comfort. Why not create a new feel-good family tradition for 2011 – Souper Sundays. Make a plan to try a new soup each Sunday for dinner. Hot, hearty and with a green salad and crusty bread, dinner is served!
Soup is one of the simplest dishes to make, usually requires only one pot and often will stretch into several meals – my family will tell you that I could live on soup and bread so creating a Souper Sunday tradition and cooking up a new soup for my family will be perfect for my tastebuds.
Last fall I had the opportunity to spend time on a Dairy tour with The California Milk Advisory Board and during my time I discovered some great resources that they offer on their extensive website, especially the assortment of recipes including three easy new recipes to start a Souper new tradition – each made with Real California dairy.
A refreshingly Skinny Sweet Pea Soup (less than 150 calories per cup) to a one-of-a-kind Curried Carrot Soup (less than 250 calories per cup) to a mouth-watering Sweet and Sour Corn Soup with Glazed Red Peppers (less than 250 calories per cup), Real California dairy products, like sour cream, yogurt, butter and, of course, Real California Milk, are an essential ingredient to all of these soups.
