If you like strong flavours, I've just posted a couple of vegetarian soup recipes in the Cookbook project folder, including one for garlic soup.  It uses an entire head of garlic.  It's like rocket fuel but everyone I've ever served it to loves it... provided they're a fan of garlic and don't need to attend an important social function that day...

I think that may be the best recipe I've ever seen

I had to look up cilantro but if it right that it means coriander that fits perfectly.

I have nearly all the stuff. Mmm.

Yes, it's coriander (are you in the UK?  I translated to US terminology).

It's actually a pretty good one if you've got a cold, as garlic is really good for when you're ill, and apparently turmeric has antibiotic properties.

Butternut Squash soup is great and has a lot of flavor...
I have a recipe for a HUGE batch ( I work in a volume cooking type of environment) but to scale it down a little...

3 lb butternut squash
1 stick butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup maple syrup
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 qt of chicken or vegetable stock
1/2 and 1/2 or heavy cream

Peel and cube the squash. Cook well, either boiling or steaming. Strain out liquid and mash with butter. Mash in sugar and syrup. Season with salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in stock ( you may not need it all, just make sure its heated already). Bring to a simmer and slowly add in cream or 1/2 and 1/2 to taste. I like to add a little nutmeg and cinnamon, but its all up to your taste.

Thank you Psykogirl  :)

I'm in a 'soup mood' again as its cold and starting to snow here in Newcastle.

And I can't have the fab garlic one all the time lol.

I wasn't expecting another recipe, but since I have all the ingredients and I'm pretty sure my mum would love squash soup also, I'll have to have a go.
