Hearty Main-Dish Soups?

After I deal with the visiting veggie chow-pup, I'd like to experiment with hearty soups that can be dinner with the addition of cornbread, etc. Doasn't have to be vegetarian. What's your favorite?

  1. Nothing says hearty like Mushroom Barley - can be made both Vegi and with beef -

    1. French Onion
      Lentil
      Navy Bean w/ or w/o Ham
      Clam Chowder (in a sourdough bread bowl)

      1. Sausage, tortelini with zuchini soup.

        1. I love split pea vegetable. The good thing is that it can be straight veggie or I add a smoked turkey drumstick or two at the beginning. When the soup is finished I cut the meat into it and remove the bone. It is scrumptious!

          1. Minestrone. Although maybe with garlic bread instead of cornbread.
