Full Answer

Tomato soup uses 30 ounces of chicken stock, 30 ounces of crushed tomatoes, heavy cream and salt and pepper to taste. The stock and tomatoes need to cook until boiling, then the cream and seasonings can be added. Once the flavors are blended and the soup is cooked through, puree it and serve. Basil, cheese and croutons can be added as a garnish when served.

Loaded potato soup uses the microwave to simplify the process. Microwave 6 ounces of cubed, peeled potatoes until soft, and cook three slices of bacon in the microwave. Sauté a chopped onion in oil while cooking the potato, then add in 1 cup of broth and 2 cups milk. Along with 3 tablespoons of flour, cook until boiling. Add in salt and pepper to taste and some sour cream. Gently mash the potatoes and crumble in the bacon. Sliced green onions and shredded cheese can be used as garnish.

Broccoli soup uses leeks, broccoli and spinach, along with salt and pepper to taste. The ingredients should be cooked in 6 cups of chicken broth until the vegetables are soft. Once cooked, puree and add sour cream as garnish.
