GO!

If you told me I’d never eat soup for the rest of my life, I’d be absolutely fine with it.

Sometimes I think I’d really like to have soup and then I have soup and remember that I don’t really like soup. Like last night. Had to have three slides of bread with it to manage half the pot.

Have made a onion and cider soup (involving an insane amount of butter) which is one of the tastiest things I’ve cooked though.

It’s fine isn’t it, soup. Quite nice if you’re ill or on a cold day for lunch but nobody ever said “my favourite food? Oh definitely soup!”

Yeah, first two spoonfuls are always “huh, this is good, why don’t I have soup more often” and then by spoonful four you remember why.

Also, soup is not dinner/tea. Lunch, yes, with bread or a sandwich or something. Starter? Of course, soup away. But as a main meal main course, take a hike soupy.

Giving soup a straight up 9/10. Love soup

Also can only stand broth based soups. Thick soups are texture hell.

Gave it an 8. Soup is great.

The best soup is better than an average pizza.

Watched my mother make a very nice looking vegetable soup for tea a couple of months ago, and then she took the pan off the hob and sick a blender in it. I’ve basically never been so horrified.

Different soup for different…needs

Mrs W does an amazing cheesy, basil and courgette soup. Tomato soup, and leek and potato soup, can be great too.

Carrot and coriander soup can get in the bin though.

6/10

Proper good soup is fucking great. 10!

Soup can be fine and I’m sure in it’s finest form can be elevated but I have a bit of an anti-soup bias as I just associate it with sad, slightly depressing English food from a can. Totally to do with my associations but I can’t really get past it. 3/10.

You see I also know a few people who are very controlling and judgemental about food and they definitely use soup as a sort of weapon - vegetable soup for dinner. No cheese, no bread, no pudding, be happy with the soup.

Certain soups are fine. I like a thick, smooth soup. Don’t really want any soggy lumps floating around in it. But I very, VERY rarely crave a soup. If it’s offered up as a starter to a meal, sure, I’ll eat it (flavour permitting), but I generally won’t choose to eat soup over any other foodstuff.

Top 3 soups:

  • Wild garlic

  • Spicy butternut squash

  • Leek and potato

I voted 5. A distinctly average food.
