Best Soups To Cook For National Soup Month
Maybe it’s the frigid temperatures or the ease of preparation, but celebrating soup month in January is one of our favorite food events. There are many Pawleys Island restaurants that offer specialty soups year-round, but January is the best time to try the ones from your favorite fine dining spot. A warm bowl of hearty soup or chili is just what you need to warm up a bit and still be satisfied.
Best Soup Recipes
When the cold winter days chill you to the core, celebrate national soup month by trying one of these rich and creamy choices.
She Crab Soup
She Crab soup should be considered fine dining in Pawleys Island during the month of January. The Chive Blossom She Crab soup is a delicious balance of quality crab meat with a splash of sherry. The flour and cream in the soup make a thick, rich texture – perfect as a lunch entrée or to start your dinner. She Crab soup is a South Carolina favorite, but if you don’t have the chance to come taste a bowl at our restaurant in Pawleys Island, make your own batch with this recipe.
Tomato Basil Soup
Liven up your traditional tomato soup with onions and herbs. Tomato Basil soup is a simple yet delicious meal. You can create this soup with canned or fresh tomatoes, add a few herbs – like fresh basil and thyme leaves – and you’ll have a family favorite in no time. Of course, you can always bring the family to Chive Blossom in Pawleys Island to sip on our signature recipe.
Put a Lowcountry cookin’ spin on traditional chili with ingredients like cooked crabmeat, jumbo shrimp and sea scallops. Mixed with vegetables and spiced with chili powder and lime juice, this seafood chili recipe will become a new favorite for your Pawleys Island fine dining menu.
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
It wouldn’t be proper to celebrate soup month without including the most classic soup of all – chicken noodle. Homemade chicken noodle soup is the go-to for cold season, but you can enjoy this meal without having the sniffles. To make a tasty soup, use a quality chicken broth and we recommend using chicken thighs (shredded) as the soup’s meat. Add onions, carrots, and celery to bring your soup to life. We’re sure the mixture you conjure up in your kitchen will beat the condensed can version any day.
If you’re snuggled under blankets and see a thin layer of snow out the window, it’s time for old fashioned beef stew. A chunky, filling stew warms you from the inside and has a savory taste. The perfect mixture of beef, onion, carrots, potatoes and red wine make for an easy winter recipe just in time for soup month.
Who says the soup menu can’t be included in Pawleys Island fine dining recipes? January is the ideal month to try out new recipes or spend an evening with the Chive Blossom family and take in our savory soup options.
