I first learned to like this soup at a Chinese restaurant called Nong Chin's in Marion Illinois. I had to try my hand at copying it, as I love it-this is the result. AND these people DO NOT give out their recipes.
For a different spin on traditional pea soup, try this split pea soup recipe with corned beef. The flavor is peppery rather than smoky, and a tasty change of pace. —Barbara Link, Alta Loma, California Skip links
As the oldest of eight girls growing up on the farm, I began cooking at an early age! This soup—which I first had at my sister's house—brings me compliments no matter where I serve it. —Elienore Myhre, Balaton, Minnesota Skip links
One of my favorite meals growing up was classic tomato soup and grilled cheese (let's be honest...it still is). It's warm and comforting and the mix of the crispy-edged grilled cheese and smooth soup is a perfect combination. This homemade version of tomato soup is super easy. Add the ingredients to a slow cooker and you'll have soup in a few hours. Tip: to make your grilled cheese extra special, spread mayo on the outside of the bread before you put it in the hot pan. It'll crisp up the edges and give it an extra buttery texture. See more
