Nothing fancy, and definitely not complicated!

  1. I have one called SOUP by Barbara Kafka, from which I got an incredibly simple technique for making chicken stock: just use chicken bones and water. It's got a lot of other info and recipes, including a good one for split pea soup.

      Kafka's book is fantastic. Most recipes are very simple and she's a rock star.

      I have Peterson's book too and he's a rock star but a bit more studious. A terrific book.

    2. Deborah Madison's Vegetable Soup is seriously terrific.

      1. Spendid Soups (Peterson)
        Book of Soups (CIA)
        Best Soups of the World (Wright)

        1. 12 Months of Monastery Soups. At least half are vegetarian, quite simple recipes, with heavy emphasis on seasonal ingredients.
