Thanksgiving soup?

Do you serve soup at Thanksgiving dinner? I would like to, and am looking for ideas. I know butternut squash/apple soup is traditional, but any other suggestions? Vegetarian recipes a plus! TIA

  1. I made a roasted chestnut soup a few years back - was very good and well received. I just roasted and peeled some chestnuts (maybe a potato or 2 as well) and pureed them in some homemade stock that I infused with some star anise.

                Don515, I'm new to this, so please forgive my ignorance. I sent an email (outside chowhand, via regular email) to your email address (i.e., don515@aol.com) from my regular email address. Should I have sent it through Chowhound? Ohmygoodness, isn't it humbling to be new at something, once again? On the other hand, what a gift, many decades after first grade, still to be learning.

                I wasn't planning to serve your creamed cauliflower with ham soup for Thanksgiving, so no rush -- still, I'd love to have it. If you can help me figure out how to get my email to you, I'd appreciate it very much.

                Thanks -- and a happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

                  That should have worked but did not see-I get a lot of junk. Just resend
                  to don515@aol.com and put CAUIIFLOWER IN CAPS BOLD IN subject line so I see it. Having a late dinner tonight did buttteyfly cornish game hens with prosciutto sage cornbread stuffing-how bad can it be....

        2. I made a creamy, cheesy cauliflower recently. Quite good. I added thyme and a pinch of turmeric for color.
          Curry also goes really well, but it depends on your guests.

          1. We are discussing doing a creme of corn this year.

            1. I just did a corn chowder today as a trial run for my class Monday night. Yum.
