Split Pea and Ham Soup I

Rating: 4.6 stars
This is a good way to use leftover ham, quite inexpensive, and VERY tasty. I hope that you enjoy it. Some people like to add carrots or other types of vegetables. Don't forget to serve with buttered bread toasted in the oven.

Venison Italian Soup

Rating: 4.49 stars
This is a hearty all-in-one-meal soup which contains vegetables, meat, and pasta. Served with mozzarella-garlic bread, makes a great meal on a cold winter day. This is a variation of a soup made with beef. I like venison because it is non-fat. Garnish with your favorite cheese.

Seafood Cioppino

Rating: 4.75 stars
This is as good as any restaurant's version! Serve with rice and a nice salad.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Rating: 4.69 stars
This recipe was passed down from a friend, and now it is one of our favorites! It's great to make whenever there is left over chicken or turkey around! We pray for colder weather in California just so we can make this soup! You can substitute additional diced tomatoes for the tomatillos. If you would like the soup to be spicier, you can add some red chili flakes or salsa. Serve with these toppings for people to choose from: limes, cilantro, cheese, avocado, sour cream, and tortilla chips.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Rating: 4.58 stars
Lentil soup with a sweet-tangy twist. This is great with a warm piece of black bread slathered with creamy butter.

Cabbage Soup II

Rating: 4.46 stars
This is a hearty main dish soup. Goes great on a cold winter night with a loaf of hot bread. Serve over orzo pasta, or your favorite soup noodle.

Strawberry Soup I

Rating: 4.63 stars
This recipe uses plain yogurt not heavy cream so it's lower in fat and calories but it is still just as good. It is a very simple and refreshing soup.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

This tomato and cabbage soup was rumored, in days of old, to melt away those thighs.

Split Pea Soup

Rating: 4.69 stars
This is a wonderful, hearty split pea soup. Great for a fall or blustery winter day.
