Food-sharing is the hot new thing in the "getting dinner
on the table" conversation, and in The Soup Club Cookbook,
four busy moms share not only their formula for starting a
soup club--which gives you at least three meals every month
when you don't have to worry about dinner--but also 150
fantastic recipes for soups and sides and storing tips for
stretching those meals across the week.
The Soup Club began when four friends (who, between them,
have four husbands and ten hungry kids and several jobs)
realized that they didn’t actually have to cook at home
every night to take pleasure in a home-cooked meal. They
simply had to join forces and share meals, even if they
weren’t actually eating them together. Caroline, Courtney,
Julie, and Tina happen to be neighbors, but a soup club is
for anyone: colleagues, a group of workout buddies, a book
club. All you need are a few people who simply want to have
more home-cooked food in their lives.
In a soup club each person takes a turn making soup—and
sometimes other dishes for sides or for when everyone needs
a break from soup, so if a club has four people, in a month
each person will have dinner delivered three times—a dish
that can start as a full meal and stretch into more dinners
or lunches or even morph into a sauce. Soup is forgiving,
versatile, and perfect for sharing; it can be spiced to
taste, topped elaborately or not at all, and dressed up or
down. It travels well and reheats beautifully. The Soup
Club Cookbook also has dozens of tips for cooking in
quantity and for tailoring soup to individual tastes and
needs. Here, too, are simple guidelines for starting your
own soup club, anecdotes, and a few cautionary tales that
will inspire anyone to share food and eat well.
Recipes include quick and easies, classics, twist on
favorites, and dozens of flavor-rich new crowd pleasers:
• Carrot Coconut and Chicken Chili,
• Senegalese Peanut
• Faux Ramen
• Red Lentil Curry Soup
Potato Cheddar Soup
• Sun Dried Tomato Soup
Jeweled Rice Salad
• Cheddar Cornbread,
• Soy Simmered Chicken Wings
