Unless you're using rocket it's hardly rocket science: you just boil a big lump of animal and add whatever greenery you have. Done.

I like carrots and corriander but can't say I'm sold on it as a soup, something too sweet about it.

Spice that shit up dogg. Roast the carrots in oil and mustard with some turmeric and chilli powder beforehand, maybe even add some parsnips. I respect that this is hardly carrot and coriander soup any more but fuck it I hate carrot and coriander so am happy to see it disappear like a dead language.

I like this creative destruction approach to cooking.

There’s no true creation without destruction my man. Rip it (soup) up and start again.

I like the 3 bean soup but prefer the 9 bean if available. It's just as cheap but 3x as filling.

I dont think 7 beans would ever fill me up to be honest. Would need to be at least double figures.

Onion soup is also really nice, never seen it available in the shop though.

You can substitute daffodil bulbs for onions (That's what they did during the war, when onions were unobtainable.) Daffodil and Dill is delicious.

I'm not a big fan of parsnips either really. It's just sweet veg in general is one of the few things I'm not all that keen on. Sweet potato is one I struggle with as well but it seems to work well in stews as it loses its flavour a bit.

Daal is basically soup, innit? Nice spiced lentil soup with a bit of a garlic tarka at the end.

Yes.

Although instead of garlic tarka I tend to do fried onions (until brown), 1tsp mustard seeds, 1tsp garam massala and crushed up curry leaves all swimming in ghee.

When I was staying with a farm family in Nepal they called what we ate twice a day daal but it wasn't a soup type deal, it was literally just rice, spinach and potatoes in a garlic base. There was a bit of liquid in but not a full soup type thing.

Maybe daal means something different there but considering they eat with their hands I dont know how they would eat a soup, being thick cunt I am.

The dhal you get in restaurants as a side is often quite runny, whereas my homemade ones always are much thicker and could be consumed as a meal in their own right.

Made an amazing iteration of my lentil & ham soup last December, despite the Christmas ham this year not having a bone in. I’ll never be able to recreate it or even remember what exactly it was about it, but that soup will haunt my dreams for as long as I live.

Coriander hatred is probably a genetic thing - you can't help it.

I'm fine with it - if there's a sprig of coriander in the middle of the bowl it's usually the highlight - and I love carrots too. There's just something insipidly sickly about the soup recipe in most places. I'm sure there are ways for it to work well though.

I like carrot and coriander.

Looking forward to Autumn's approach so I can get back to feasting upon vast bowls of Leek and Potato like a jackal. Fucking excellent. Had this spiced coconut and turmeric soup with lentils a few years ago too which was pretty dreamy.

Interesting, my fiancée lived in Nepal for a bit and she ate daal basically every bastard day and brought the recipe home with her. The stuff she makes is deffo thicker than soup but still is soupy in consistency. Every time I’ve got it from a takeaway or at a restaurant it’s been the same also.

Incidentally it’s one of my all time favourite foods, we usually just have daal with basmati rice and that’s the whole meal. It gets inhaled, it’s so bloody tasty and comforting. Big lash of sriracha all over it, fuckin heaven.

To be fair, it turned out they had purposefully been putting less spice in it because I'm a westerner with a shite palate, which is very sweet of them.

Maybe it's a regional thing or just what they like.

What i had was def spectacular though. It taught that freshness of ingredients supercedes everything. The potatoes and rice were straight from the farm a few yards away, and it was angelic. If you told me I'd be eating rice and potatoes first thing in the morning and I'd love it I'd laugh at you but good god it's lush.

The boiled milk curd rice though? Fucking hell, squits before you even swallow it.

If she still has that recipe and you'd be kind enough to share that'd be ace.

My wife refers to any dhal accompaniment as Tarka Dhal, drives me mad. The tarka is a garnish of fried spices. Plus she then complains if I include fennel seeds in that, which is one of my favourite inclusions. Divorced soon.

The easiest and best soup is gazpacho. So easy you don't even need to cook it; just stick all the best bits of the 'Mediterranean diet' that we're all supposed to keep to in order to live longer into a blender for ten seconds then eat/drink/be merry.

Then repeat fifteen minutes later when you get hungry again.

I got into making soup during lockdown, and like to make videos of the early stages of the soup-making process.

Yes, folks, I’ve ended up with a lot of stock footage.

Bouillabaisse.

Or pretty much any fish soup. The ones you get in Italian restaurants tend to be great, more of a stew than a soup, full of nice bits of fish.  Big fan of chicken and sweetcorn and hot and sour from the Chinese takeaway as well.
