Any ideas for a breakfast soup?

I just thought about making a breakfast soup for guests next weekend, but I don't believe I've ever heard of one. One guest is a vegetarian so any recipes meeting those requirements would be appreciated, but worst case I'll make her something else instead. I know you could do certain soups and pass them off for breakfast but I was hoping someone knew one that was more breakfast oriented, whatever that means. Thanks

  1. I would think some kind of corn soup would be good in the morning...maybe a slightly sweet version? A pumpkin soup could work, too.

    1. Fuul Medammes is served for breakfast in Arab countries. It can be soupy or thicker, like a stew. It's basically just the fuul beans (called fava beans but they're really not the same) cooked with garlic, lemon, olive oil, parsley, and salt. I loved it when I spent a few months in Jordan. It's easy to make. You can probably find a recipe online, or I'll post one if you want.

      Otherwise, I was thinking of a fruit soup. My grandmother used to make a fruit salad of bananas, apples, oranges, pears, peaches, halved grapes. She'd add orange juice to it, and the liquid that collected at the bottom of the bowl was so delicious. There are recipes out there for lots of fruit soups.

      1. Foul mudammas is a great savory breakfast, though it can be somewhat jarring for Westerners. On occasion, my mother would make her children champurrado, essentially a rice and chocolate soup, the Asian version of Cocopuffs, I guess.

        1. I have heard of omelette soup! Make a thin, cheese filled omelette, cut into cubes and put in light chicken stock!!! Now that I think about it, you could add some chunks of breakfast sausage too. If some fresh sage in this soup would be great. Sage is good with eggs and pork both. Chives would be great too!

          I love your post and got excited right away to think about the idea of it!

          1. How about this? Make a really crispy round of hashbrowns, sized to fit in your bowl. Place a poached egg on top and ladle chicken stock on top. Maybe a tiny dice of red pepper in the broth, and chives.
