2) We had Cream Soup Day recently.
3) That's a whole lotta bullshit cause only one of the soups had cream in it.
4) I've recently discovered my distaste for not being asleep at 4:04 am.
The deal with Cream Soup Day was that we made a variety of soups with different thickeners that would yield a creamy texture without using cream. I believe the name should have been Smoothy Soup Day, due to the lack of any dairy whatsoever, but I'm pretty sure if I told someone I was making smoothy soup, they would think me retarded, so I guess I understand.
The top thickened with potato.
The bottom thickened with oats.
The bottom thickened with potato.
The top thickened with an oil roux. (This was my favorite. So. Fucking. Good.)
All of them are thickened with different things
One with rice, oats, oil roux, butter roux, and potato.
There were two versions of the one with oats because I strained half of mine through a chinoise to see the texture difference. It was much smoother and more refined after the straining.
There was also a vegan version of this one made, I don't remember what it was thickened with, but I didn't really care for it. It's weird to drink asparagus things. They are better chewed.
The top was thickened with cream and a butter roux, and the bottom was thickened with an oil roux.I couldn't taste the cream/butter roux version (not vegan), but the other one was fantastic.
