Inspired by getting to eat at Smokey Bones for the first time in years, I have this bubbling in my crockpot:

*Boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs or both.
*One bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce.
*Approximately one cup chicken stock/broth
*Chopped onion to taste
*One diced tomato
*Frozen corn (as much or as little as you want)

(Note the First: you could of course do this with pork shoulder or brisket.)

(Note the Second: some recipes call for lima beans, but they are my nemesis. However, if you like lima beans, by all means, add them!)

Put diced onion, chicken, sauce, and stock in your crockpot (or in an oven-safe pot in your oven, probably on 325ish). Cook until chicken is shredable, then remove and shred. Add back to the crockpot and cook for...a while, to infuse flavor and/or kill time. Add corn at the last minute: nuking it later will warm the corn.

Divide, and eat at lunch with a hunk of tasty bread.

All due credit to [personal profile] trojie for the original recipe. I changed the cut of chicken, the vegetables, and the method of cooking.

That's [[Peruvian chicken] soup], not [[Peruvian] chicken soup]-- I made this with a chicken from my local Peruvian chicken take-out place, but any rotisserie chicken would work (though possibly with some adjustment of seasonings.)

Curried Spinach, Potato & Cannellini Bean Soup

Accessibility notes:
* Ingredients: contains dairy; is vegetarian; contains no tomatoes; can be gluten-free if you use the right stock and curry paste
* Preparation: involves a fair bit of chopping, but, if you use a slow cooker, no hot pots or boiling liquids
* Time: about twenty minutes preparation, and 40-60 min on a stove or all day in a slow cooker
* Serves: 4-6. Doesn't freeze well but reheats wonderfully.

How I love winter and its soups. I've made spicy red lentil soup for work lunches and today's lunch, but there won't be much for work if I don't stop having little bowls. It is very yum.

Here 'tis:

1 onion, diced small
Some garlic, chopped or crushed
A bit of grated ginger or lots if you love ginger - good for winter!
A teaspoon each of ground tumeric, cumin, coriander and half a teaspoon of chilli flakes. This is double the original recipe and to my taste. Adjust to suit yours. The amount of chilli is not at all spicy hot.
A 440g tin of tomatoes, diced or the equivalent in fresh, chopped. I like this soup better with tinned.
Two large carrots, diced.
A cup of red lentils.
Four litres of veggie stock, though I used beef today because that's all I had.
Parsley, chopped.

Use a soup pot or large saucepan. You'll need a long handled spoon to stir.

Sauté the onion, garlic, ginger and spices for five minutes or until onion a bit soft, in butter, oil, stock or dry, whichever suits you.

Add everything else except parsley, bring to the boil and simmer for 35 - 40 minutes. Stir every so often so the lentils don't stick to the pan.

Stir in some chopped parsley or herb of choice. Coriander is yum. Chives interesting.

I find if you cut the carrots small (so they are cooked in a shorter time) and simmer for only 25 - 30 minutes you get a less thick soup and this is also quite yummy.

I think of this as Orange Soup. It's sunshiny, tasty, warming, filling and made of good things. I can 4 lunches out of this recipe, easily.

Depending on your choice of stock and how you sauté (butter, oil, dry fry, stock fry) it can be a vegetarian dish and/or low fat and is low GI anyway.

Or, as I now think of it, the "You're gonna need a bigger pot" soup recipe.

This recipe makes a lot of soup. I ate a substantial bowl a day for about a week, plus gave away at least four generous servings and still had more soup. Paired with some good sourdough bread and some sort of desert, it makes for a very filling meal.

Everyone who ate it went out of their way to comment on how tasty it was--and not in that I'm being nice to the person who gave me food way, more in the "Wow, that was really so frakkin' good for vegetable soup that I'm kind of baffled by how much I liked it" way. Normally, I get bored with the taste of something after about four servings, but I wasn't ever sad to open my pyrex and find this waiting for me.

So, just fair warning, you're going to need a bigger pot than you think. It came up so close to the very lip of my 10 quart pot that when the last ingredients went in, I had trouble stirring it without spilling.

It should be noted that the soup itself could easily be made vegan/vegetarian by using vegetable stock.

Lastly, it really is more stew than soup. The lentils make for a very thick and hearty meal overall. I made it with green beans instead of spinach, but next time I make it, I think (assuming I can find a bigger pot to use), I might toss both in.
