Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For every occasion there seems to be a suitable soup: chicken soup for when you're under the weather, chili for the big football game, cheese soup for après-ski. Author and food writer Ken Haedrich relishes and highlights the unique character of soup in Soup Makes the Meal: 150 Soul-Satisfying Recipes for Soups, Salads, and Breads. His soup and salad recipes feature fresh, interesting, and, in many cases, seasonal foods. The recipe choices are meant to appeal to all appetites: they can be hearty enough to satisfy the hungriest meat eater or observant enough for vegetarian tastes or stylish enough for more elegant affairs. Find Chilled Creamy Peach Yogurt Soup for the summer months paired with Blueberry Lemon Scones and Tomato, Feta, and Peach Composed Salad garnished with Peach Vinaigrette. The yeast and nonyeast breads included are both interesting and unique. Jeff's Whipped Cream Biscuits are a rich accompaniment to Deborah's Bulgur Buttermilk Herb Soup, and the Molasses Soda Bread with Curried Pumpkin is the perfect winter's night companion to Haedrich's Cheddar Bisque. A well-known and experienced food writer, Haedrich offers the reader a bountiful harvest of choices that he recommends mixing and matching. This impressive collection should lead to a near-endless supply of satisfying combinations and possibilities. --Teresa Simanton

From Library Journal

Known for his simple but satisfying home-style recipes and especially his desserts and baked goods, Haedrich (Country Baking) here provides 50 complete menus for soup, salad, and bread (or biscuits or muffins), organized by season: The recipes are easy and mostly quick, and the menus make generous meals some of the soup-bread or soup-salad combinations, in fact, could stand alone. Busy home cooks and soup lovers will find Haedrich's latest book appealing; recommended for most collections. [Good Cook selection.]

I love that each meal (organized by seasons) has a combination of soup recipe/bread and salad.
Spring to Life
I also appreciate the variety of salads- I'm always trying to add more veggies and more variety into my family's diet and this book has really inspired me.

I have really liked every recipe so far and want to try all the soups and many of the salads and breads, too!

I cook often, but I own very few cookbooks. I get tired of buying cookbooks and finding only a few recipes worth making. This book is definitely an exception. Every recipe I've tried has been terrific, and there are so many others I'd like to try, I've decided to give the library back their copy and purchase my own. The biggest plus for me is that the recipes are all very healthy and the menus are well-balanced. Yes, he uses butter and cream in some recipes, but he balances them with amazing whole grain breads and large amounts of vegetables and fruits in the soups as well as the salads. What impresses me the most is that his whole grain breads taste so terrific - you'll wonder why you ever ate white bread! Best of all, the recipes make enough for leftovers, but not so much that you're eating soup all week. Best Bets: the Split Pea soup menu is my favorite - the bread is terrific and the split pea soup is the best I've ever tasted.

I bought this book for my husband, and can't stay away from it. I first read the book from cover to cover. Most of the ingredients are easily bought at a regular grocery store, and I have had no troubles with any of the recipes yet. There is a huge variety of soups, salads and breads in this book. Some of the selections are traditional favorites, others are more unusual. This book has rapidly become one of our favorites in our collection.

I passed this book on a library cart, stopped and picked it up, was intrigued, checked it out, brought it home and read it, and finally decided I have to have my own copy. What a great cookbook, with lots of breads, soups, and salads that I can't wait to try. The breads are mostly innovative quick breads, and thank goodness for so many new picnic and potluck salads besides the tired old mayo-doused macaroni ones. I like the little intro at the beginning of each recipe, it's informative and entertaining and gives you a preview of how your final result will turn out. Most of the soup recipes can easily be modified to be low in fat (for example add evaporated milk instead of cream). My kids are adventurous eaters so I plan to try many many of these recipes, but there are few exotic ingredients or oddball flavor combinations, so I definitely think of this as a "family friendly" cookbook.

Format: Paperback
This new cookbook joins the growing legion of other soup-related collections and is a most welcome addition. It contains about 50 soup recipes that show a great deal of diversity. Each soup is paired with recipes for a salad and a bread that the author thinks will compliment the recipe well. Along with each set of recipes is a detailed description and anecdotes. Well written and the recipes sound great. Only debit - no pictures.

I love to cook, and I have a pretty extensive collection of cookbooks. This one ranks number one for soups and the breads and salads that best complement them. The tips that Haedrich inserts among the recipes are practical and interesting. It's fun to pick up tricks of the trade as you go along. And everyone who buys this book must try the Cream of Jalapeno soup--it is very unusual, and extremely tasty. I can't wait to try some more of Haedrich's books. He really communicates his love for food and its preparation, and makes the time spent cooking fun and rewarding.

Bought this book in Shipshewanna IN in getting ready for football tailgating. Was the hit of the Saturday soups. The Curried Pumpkin and Cheddar Bisque is to die for -- and I had a lot of people who agreed. Can't wait to try the Garlicky White Bean and my husband's favorite, Scallop & Crab Bisque. Will be looking for more books by Ken Haedrich! Well written, easy to follow, ingredients available and fun to make!

I'm a soup junkie- I literally eat soup for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a regular basis - and I'm so happy with this book! Every recipe has turned out well, and so far none are terribly time-consuming (yet they still all have a nice homemade-with-love vibe to them). I also appreciate the variety of salads- I'm always trying to add more veggies and more variety into my family's diet and this book has really inspired me. I have not tried the breads yet, mostly out of bread-making fear, but they don't really look too hard, and I'm actually gearing up to try one right now. The author has a nice folksy tone that makes the book pleasant company in the kitchen as you wait for your veggies to "sweat" and the menus are well-organized by season, though he encourages you to mix and match as taste and availability of ingredients dictates. A great addition to any cookbook collection, and a must for fellow soup junkies!

I love soup and have several soup cookbooks. This is the best by far. The breads and salads to serve alongside the soups are also fantastic. Must try recipes (my favorites) Vegetarian Split Pea (the addition of BBQ sauce instead of meat is genius); Cabbage Paprikash, and the slow-roasted tomato foccacia. You will not be disappointed by the soup book for all seasons. Haedrich has a gift in recipe development!
