I love good soups, but don't have much time to spend on them and I'm not a natural-born cook, so it is important that a book explain things simply and not require much time in preparation. 365 Vegetarian Soups does this. I have made one batch of stock (9 recipes for stock) and tried 6 soups with that stock, cutting each recipe to make one bowl full, which means as a single person, I don't have to eat the same soup every night for 2 weeks in a row! The stock itself took some time, but I made one batch on Sunday and have used it in different soup recipes all week. Each soup I've made has been delightful with great flavor. The celeriac (celery root) soup was a new vegetable to me and very good cooked with potato, onion, and lemon juice. All 6 recipes I've tried so far were quick to prepare and 5 took only 30 minutes to cook (1 took an hour but was worth it). The index is very helpful to find a soup for the extra vegetables I have left over. Again, I don't have to have the same soup for days, just in order to use up all the asparagus (I can't believe I have totally enjoyed asparagus soup!). I really look forward to trying all the stocks and each of the recipes this year. Another helpful thing is that on each soup, the author tells you if it is a winter, spring, summer, fall, or year-round recipe.
