  1. I love the pumpkin parsley seed garnish from Feeding the Whole Family also. And, incidentally, I LOVE the FTWF cookbook. Mine is so well loved it is falling apart, so I have ordered the new revised edition and can’t wait to get it!! This is literally my favorite cookbook ever.

  2. OK I’m a below-average cook, but I can make soup!! That said, I have one secret ingredient for my turkey chili that I only give to those lucky few who have eaten it. Sorry.

  3. Just last night I made the Three Sisters Stew recipe out of FTWF with almost 100% of ingredients sourced from my Garden Treasures CSA. We had it served over/topped with Trader Joe’s version of Fritos – like Frito pie. My 8 y.o. daughter ate two bowls! Yum!

  4. Balsamic vinegar. Not really. I don’t have a favorite. I’m not that creative. I just follow recipes. That’s why I love Cookus and your book!!! I hope I win the soup book and am going to buy 2 of your books and give one to my daughter. Uh, maybe I should talk with her first b/c I think I already gave her your book(s).
    Keep up the good work!!!

  5. My favorite soup garnish I learned from one of Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood books, in a recipe for lentil soup (“gentle”): green onions sliced and mixed with red wine vinegar. I often use plain yogurt as well. Mmmmmmm soup……

  6. I live near the coast, so I like to collect fresh seaweed, dehydrate it, and then crumble it on top of soups. I also like to sprinkle a little nutritional yeast & maybe some toasted sunflower seeds, depending on the soup.

  7. Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeese. 😀 I am also a mother of small children so I rarely garnish, or rather, I apply a garnishment of LOOOOOVE. 😀

  8. I love plain yogurt in place of sour cream on borscht, chili, black bean soup. I use plain greek yogurt to boost the protein in my soup lunch/dinner and always sprinkle cayenne on top of the yogurt for a wee kick!

  9. I love soups! All kinds. My favorite garnish is crumbled feta cheese and a sprinkling of za’atar spice (thyme, sumac, sesame). Yum!

  10. I love to top soup with my home dried cherry tomatoes – not all soups want tomatoes – I also have dried sweet peppers – all from our generous roof-top garden

  11. I love to put gremolata in soup if it doesn’t compete with other flavors. Otherwise, I just eat the soup as made and don’t use any toppings.

  12. A dash of plain soya yoghurt (much cleaner than dairy yoghurt and also because I’m lactose intolerant!) and a snipping of fresh chives. Takes the soup from good to awesome!

  13. Toasted nuts to add delicious protein to veg soups! Pistachios, walnuts, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, whatever I have available. Mmmm…

  14. Love soups, like to add greens and Parmesan Cheese. Also either a pat of butter or some olive oil. But I’ll have to try some of these already listed.

  15. Your Creamy Cilantro Sauce from “Feeding the Young Athlete”. It’s a great way to cool down Green Chile Chicken Soup. If I have pepitas on hand, I add those, too! Oh, and maybe some fire-roasted corn…..

  16. I love some oven toasted corn tortilla strips in most soups and salads. My cousin swears that tomato soup should have popped corn floating on top.

  17. I love a combination of nuts, garlic, an herb, and citrus zest. Pistachios and almonds are my favorite of all nuts to use; always garlic; the herb can be parsley, cilantro, sage, or thyme; any citrus, though I am fondest of lemon and orange in this context.

    But adding grated hard (especially a sheep’s milk) cheese would not disappoint me!

  18. I love anything with a bit of a crunch to it, like french fried onions or tortilla chips. They make my Tomato Basil soup all frisky with flavors! 😉
