I'm a soup fan (in another context, that combination of words would be extremely messy).

When I'm starting to feel a cold come on, I get a big bowl of Hot and Sour soup.
Spicy enough to start you sweating and salty enough to sooth a sore throat, it's my go-to "cure".

My favorite mainsteam soup would be cream of tomato, but I make a killer French Onion Soup 3 or 4 times a year, and a wicked Wild Mushroom Soup about as many times. I also make a Burger, Bean & Barley Soup on a fairly regular basis. Mmmm.... barley....
Then there's the Wisconsin Beer Cheese Soup, that BGG/ Chit Chat introduced me to-- whoo-ee, that's good stuff!

Last week I had a package of Ramen soup in concentrated beef broth.

So what are your favorites?
Here's a list of about 50 that I found and appended, but I've surely missed some others:

Poll
Fill in the grid, if you want to.
We'll assume that if you rate a soup then you've had a bowl of it, at some point in your life. You can choose more than one box per line if you need to.
Then mark only one as your Favorite, if that's even possible.

In case you're interested, I also posted a recipe for Mexican Tortilla Soup on the Cooking Guild forum today: Soup for supper

What cuisine is that? I've never heard of it. Sounds Korean, or maybe Indonesian or Thai?

It's Korean. I haven't seen a Korean place that doesn't serve it yet so should be easy to find and try.

How about just cooking two whole chickens in a broth and then throwing away the chicken and just drinking the lovely concentrated soup?

Chili gets into that gray area, between soup and stew. I like my chili thick so I didn't add it.

I only included gumbo because it was on someone's soup list-- I consider it to be closer to a stew, most times, as well.

Looks like I'm the only person, so far, to know and love Ash e reshteh. It's a Persian soup, with noodles and beans, and it is lovely. I've made it myself at home, I liked it so much at the restaurant.

Avgolemono, incidentally, is often seen in Greek restaurants although it also has middle eastern origins and versions. Basically it is a meat broth flavored with lemon and egg. Quite light and refreshing, actually.

Wow! French onion is either a favorite or people don't like it. Very little middle ground in the polls.

All I can say is that you've never really had a good French Onion soup if you're just voting on the cheese and crostini that a lot of places put on top of it. Mine doesn't need dressing up like that; it has a deep beef flavor, lots of garlic and thyme, and the onions are soft and tranluscent.

Nothing worse than a really firm onion in onion soup. yuk

Brazilian Feijoada is another hearty soup with meat and beans. It's about the same consistency as a chowder or a bisque, but it's not cream based like clam chowder.

Up to now, I'm the only one to vote "Other" as my favorite....

That would be bean & bacon soup. I start with a basic can of Campbell's, add a bunch of extra bacon bits (Hormel), a splash or three of habanero hot sauce, generous amount of black pepper (love the flavor), and a cup of brown rice to upgrade it from "bowl of soup" to "manly meal".

Most of the time with dinner, I have a simple glass of juice or milk, but this soup is mighty fine with a good strong beer.


cool

Yesterday I made home-made split pea soup with a little crumbled bacon in it. Good for a cold day. I like making soups from scratch - tastier than from the can, and you can make them healthy.

Yep.

"from the can" just sounds so wrong. I can't tell you how many times I've "gone to the can" in my life (or today for that matter). whistle

I tried to fill that, but then I realised the if Vegan part so.

Before vegan I hated soup, now I like a few soups

Lentil soups, Gazpacho, Root-vegetable soups, Pho and so on.

Looks like Split Pea is another divisive soup on the poll. People either love it or hate it, with not too many "on the fence" here.

To me, dried peas are not a great ingredient because they get mushy. Much like how many types of lentils just disappear or become completely tasteless after 20 minutes in water.

But, as you say, good homemade soups will change your mind about a lot of those choices that you think that you don't like.

Mushy, when done right, is TASTY. I use lentils in soup a lot, too.

I made Ploughman's soup on the weekend. One of my husband's favourite. We eat a lot of soup.

My favourite soup from a restaurant is an egg noodle soup with rare beef, shrimp, and sate. It is almost more than I can tolerate spice wise but it is oh so tasty!

I have never been one who likes broth. If it's liquid, drink it from a cup. Stews are definitely a bigger hit with me, and those grey area ones like split-pea and chili, so much more filling and satisfying. Interesting list though.
