Kids are awesome at malicious compliance - but it is a 2-way street ;)
My kids can be picky eaters at times. My wife made some damn good chicken soup, but the kids were complaining that there were veggies in their chicken soup, they hate veggies, veggies make them sick, and they wanted my wife to pick them out of the soup. We tried to tell them that good chicken soup needs veggies to taste good, but they were being stubborn. I'm sure other parents can understand.
I told the kids "if you really hate the taste of veggies, I'll make soup tomorrow, and you guys can make sure I only put stuff in you like." They liked that idea, at the time.
The next day, I get the pot filled with water, all the typical soup ingredients out, and gathered the kids. I asked for their approval on every item. Chicken - yes, salt - yes, black pepper - no (gross, too spicy), celery - no (I can't even stand the smell), onions - NO!!! It went on with that, with them rejecting parsley, bay leaves, and other... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm honestly lost please help. Can I just add a cup of milk? Google keeps giving me condensed milk, but I'm mexican and that stuff is really sweet and used for desserts only
Thank you. I feel really stupid.
If you gave me an award and I didn't thank you through DM. I'm sorry. I'm trying my best to dig through my inbox.
To everyone who offered advice, or wished my soup tasted good thank you as well!
The soup was a little watery. I'll use 1/2 the can next time.
No I'm not a stoner
Red lentils are inexpensive but very nutritious. They are a great source of fiber, protein, iron and much more. They are very easy to prepare. If you are not familiar with or have not yet made these a staple, I encourage you to get started now. You'll be pleased you did!
This is my recipe for red lentil soup I made recently. For under $2.50, this recipe makes six servings.
Rinse the red lentils in cold water until clear. (If you have extra time, then let the lentils sit in cold water for 30 minutes to soak - this softens them up and reduces cooking time.)
Dice onions. Mince garlic. Finely slice celery. Combine an
I always have canned soups on hand for quick easy meals. Often with coupons and sales, I can get them for something like $0.50/can: making them a cheap option when I run out of homemade soup or I need a more shelf-stable option (like at work).
Although they are cheap and handy, they can be a little flat in the flavour department. Instead of eating them as-is, there are lots of low calorie things you can add in easily to increase the flavour and/or nutrition:
- frozen vegetables (I'll add to the bowl with the soup before microwaving)
- hot sauces
- dried or fresh herbs
- soy sauce
- extra garlic and other spices
Recently, I had a bowl of Campbell's Chunk Prime Rib with Vegetables (308 calories for the can). It was much improved by adding 80g frozen peas before cooking and then a good dash of balsamic vinegar at the end.
Once, I had a can of cream of mushroom soup that... keep reading on reddit ➡

Hi everyone, we're Alzabo Soup, and today we published our episode on the last chapter of The Urth of the New Sun. If you haven't heard of us before, we do chapter by chapter readings of Gene Wolfe books. Past coverage has included The Book of the New Sun, The Fifth Head of Cerberus, The Sorcerer's House, and several of Wolfe's short stories. We've also covered other works by significant speculative fiction authors and influences on Wolfe.

Feminists: So are you suggesting women are incapable of causing pandemics?
EDIT: Please send some comment karma my way kind strangers.
Also known as "Shorba Adas", this is a cheap, healthy and delicious recipe that's been in my family for years. It's very comforting and goes really well with any type of bread or even great dipped with pita. This recipe serves 6.
Donated 2 bucks to the couple there that was giving away free soup and coffee. It was raining and a little chilly so it really hit the spot for me.
I'm sure this shit will collapse in a week or two but yesterday it was honestly pretty nice being there. Felt like a natural continuation of all the mutual aid work that was going on at that street the past week during the protests that got the cops to abandon the East Precinct. There were some tards with a loudspeaker constantly screaming shit though. At one point I heard something to the tune of "if you aren't here to help out, go the fuck home we don't need you here".
Now that I think about it I think the couple handing out soup and coffee was actually set up right outside of the CHAZ's "borders". There was a dope event there set up by Kshama Sawant and Socialist Alternative. Later today if I gather my thoughts and find some good video timestamps I'll probably make a post about it.

I have been using chemical guys and it’s not horrible but I feel like there are better things.
Obese, too, up peas to a pea stew. A beast to appease two apiece, too.
8 cups water
2 cups green split peas
1 rib celery, coarsely chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pinch of cayenne
1 bay leaf
Combine water, split peas, celery, carrot, onion, thyme, cayenne, and bay leaf in a large pot.
Bring the mixture to a hard boil for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the peas are tender.
Remove from heat and let cool. Press the soup through a fine mesh sieve and discard the solids. Place the strained soup back in the pot and reheat then serve.
-If you like a chunkier soup, skip the sieve step and just remove the bay leaf. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
-1 cup=140 calories
-For added protein, add ham chunks or bacon.
first and foremost: English is not my native language but I still hope I'll get my point across.
So recently I stumbled upon The Soup (Recipe) and the popularity over here sparked my interest so I ended up making it. I tried to follow the recipe religiously although some measurements were hard to convert to regular units (like what the F is a "cup of tortellinis"? Who measures tortellini in cups????).
What I found weird was the presence of the chicken. Tomato, Spinach, tortellini with cheese - all that makes totally sense. But why the chicken? They way it gets used results in pretty much 0 flavor added and it doesn't complement the other ingredients at all.
I totally get that The Soup should be quick and easy to make but some of the convenience ingredients bothered me. Especially the dried basil. Why not use fresh basil? Wh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I live in the Midwest, where people are used to pork chops. What is a vegetarian dish they would enjoy? I was thinking maybe something with mushrooms?
I’ve been playing with a basic lentil and leek soup recipe for a few weeks and it’s always pretty good, but never once has it been really good. I just can’t pinpoint what I might be missing. Here’s how it typically goes:
Sauté garlic, onion, ginger, carrots, leeks and celery for a couple minutes, season, pour in some water, bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 30ish minutes. Add lentils, simmer for another 30 or so.
Super simple and super healthy which is why I’ve continued to make it but it just isn’t a great recipe. Good, yes; great, no.
EDIT: wow, I expected maybe a handful of comments, thanks for all the advice! For posterity, it seems I need to try :
Recipe here originally: Vegan Spicy Black Bean Soup
You can modify this black bean soup as you like. The basis of my black bean soup was:
You can modify this with ingredients like a can of green chilis, chipotles in adobo sauce, or with roasted poblano or red bell peppers.
This recipe is so easy to prepare! We also served it with warm, crispy tortilla strips but you can use store-bought or omit them. We also served it with thinly sliced avocado on top and it made it a delicious and filling meal.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
