I don’t know about you, but this winter feels like it has been the coldest winter we have had in a long time. Even in Florida where I am, it is way below the average temperatures for us. I actually embrace the change because I get to make dinners that feel like home to me. Since I spent most of my life in New York, the first thing that comes to mind is a soup night. My whole family loves it!
When The Original Soupman offered for me to try out seven of their delicious flavors I was so excited. I am sure many of you remember the very famous Seinfeld episode, “No soup for you!”. The Original Soupman was a staple to New York City long before that. Just like in the episode people would line the streets, waiting in freezing temperatures to get a bowl of their delicious hot soup. Made from fresh ingredients and spices, it has been compared to art. Yes, believe me it is that good.
Today, you do not need to live in New York City to get your hands on a bowl. The Original Soupman has other locations to dine in including Texas, Connecticut, New Jersey and Virginia. Do not live in those states? Don’t worry! They have branched out intothousands of grocery store locations, which include Walmart, Stop & Shop and Safeway just to name a few. If you can not find a location near you you canorder it online.
The Original Soupman recipes include:
- Chicken Noodle
- Lobster Bisque
- Tomato Bisque
- Crab and Corn Chowder
- Chicken Gumbo
All of the above recipes are included online and in stores. If you are lucky enough to live near a location they have over 40 different varieties to choose from as well.
I personally tasted all of these, my favorite is the tomato bisque. They are all exactly just as I remembered when I was living in New York. The flavors are fresh and it is not something you would expect from a traditional canned or boxed soup. They taste like you were slaving in the kitchen all day.
Soup is just one of those dishes that can be so versatile. That’s the best part there are so many things you can do with it to please everyone, including ,y picky eater. Pair it with a sandwich, a salad or just enjoy it as a snack.
What do you like to pair with soup?
