Mulligatawny Soup Recipe

mulligatawny-bann3r

I Remember the first time I had a Mulligatawny Soup Recipe.  My mind and more importantly my taste buds were absolutely blown away.  I was playing sous chef at a really nice restaurant in St. Louis, Missouri called Cardwells.  Our chef loved to make soup and dang was he good at it.  After about 2 months of working there he made Mulligatawny and I lost it…  I would try a small cup of his soup everyday and everything was always delicious, but when this came along I didn’t know what to do with myself. These were flavors I had never tasted…

Scotch Broth Soup Recipe with Cous Cous

scotch-broth-6

It’s been quite along time since I’ve made Scotch Broth Soup with Cous Cous.  Traditionally there is barely in the soup but I just happen to love Israeli cous cous, so that’s what I used.  I was at the University of Missouri Country Club when my chef told me to make Scotch Broth for soup with all of the left over lamb I had.  I looked at him completely clueless because I had absolutely no clue what he was talking about.  So I did a little research and a few hours later I had this delicious soup with the most…

Pork Confit and Split Pea Soup Recipe

split-pea-1

Always enjoy making soup in the fall and winter months.  I also like to change up classics with my own twist, just like in this split pea and pork confit soup recipe.  Obviously the traditional version is ham and split pea, BUT if you’ve never had pork confit that you have no clue what you’ve been missing. Confit is the process of cooking something in it’s own fat.  You can confit just about anything, literally.  You just put the pork tenderloin right in a pot with veggies, herbs and olive oil and pop it in the oven on 300° for…

I know what you’re thinking, who is going to eat soup in the summer right? Well there are tons of great soups out there like corn chowder, gazpacho, cucumber dill, etc. so there J. Really the inspiration came from wanting to incorporate some summer flavors into a traditional Vietnamese dish in this Summer Beef Pho with Scallion Dumplings. As intricate as this dish may appear, it could not be any easier to make. Does it take some time to prep the vegetables, make the broth and dumplings? Sure, but it’s still not as bad as you think.
