There are 2 basic soups in this world: Creamy and broth based. Which one do you prefer?
I honestly can’t choose! There’s so many great ones that my mind just zings back and forth like a pinball game. Creamy is definitely a winner because I adore this cauliflower soup.
No! Broth based soups are better because I simply couldn’t image a winter without this tortellini soup.
So in my mind it boils down to this. There is no clear winner. It will forever be a battle against good and good. Friends, I have lots of soups here on the blog for you to check out.
