New England Soup Factory!!!

I love making soup, especially in the winter. Recently, I got turned onto the New England Soup Factory cookbook, and absolutely LOVE this cookbook. I have made a number of the soups from tihs book and have not missed on one yet. Tonight I made the Greek Orzo Chicken Lemon soup. For Thanksgiving, I made the Porcini Mushroom soup. This weekend, I'm planning to make their New England Clam chowder. There is something for every season in this cookbook, so I should have lots of things to try year round.

If you have made some, what are your favorites?

  1. Ooh, does the book include a recipe for the lemon lentil soup? I love that one and would totally buy the book just for that.

      Sorry, I don't think it does. You can browse the book on Amazon to see what is included though. If you look at the index of the book, it shows you all the recipes that are included.

    2. That place totally rocks. ALWAYS delicious. I'm lucky I live nearby.

      I'd also buy the book if they have the tomato/cheddar/habernero soup recipe. It's the soup of my dreams.

      Do you know if it's in it?

        AAAG! That one isn't in there either. Now I'm freaking out, because I haven't had the opportunity to eat there. Only try the recipes in the cookbook. Now I'm bothered by the soups that I don't have access too. This week, I'm going to try the sausage minestrone with orzo soup. Everything in the cookbook is awesome, but unfortunately, I live about 800 miles from the restaurant, so I'm missing out on the tomato/cheddar/habernero soup you speak of. Maybe, if there is enough interest, there will be a volume 2?

          Thank you for looking!

          I'm guessing that a lot of their current soups aren't in the book.

          It's pretty amazing that a 20' x 20' hole in the wall in a crumbling strip mall had created such a sensation but they do very good food.

          It's right by my doctors office do there is a reason I try to schedule 11am appointments: lunch!

      2. Thanks for this post. I was given the book as a gift, and it got tucked away and forgotten about. Now I'm motivated!

          I'd love to hear which ones end up being your faves. I made the beed and barley for a crowd over christmas and really liked that one as well.

        2. My absolute favorite from that book is the corn & roasted red pepper chowder. I've also made the Spicy Chicken and Rice Flu Chaser Soup with great success. Love all the recipes I've tried so far.

          1. If you're into chowders and New England style cooking you might want to check out the book by Jasper White called "50 Chowders", lots of good recipes in there.
