Kitchen Chemist: Soup of the Day, Part IV & Finale

I hope that you've been enjoying my Salmon Bisque tutorials as much as I've been enjoying the soup- all week long!



Just a few last ingredients to add...





Keep stirring, keep tasting, and then you're done...




This is one of our favorite recipes- it fills our stomachs without emptying our wallets. A tough economy can be pretty unappetizing. When money is tight, it's easy to turn to canned soup, top ramen, or worse. Cheap food doesn't have to make you feel and look lousy. For just a few dollars per serving, this Salmon Bisque (and many other homemade soups and casseroles) is nutritious and almost extravagantly flavorful. Better yet, it's a meal that can be reheated and eated all week, and it freezes well (for those of you preparing for the long winter).
I'd like to hear from all of you foodies out there, and of course, anyone who is culinarily-challenged. What kind of recipes would you like to see here at StB? Restaurant-inspired? Gourmet on a budget? Holiday party appetizers? Gluten-free? Leave us a comment!

Hail to the Chef! I love soups and I agree that they can be a great way to have a hearty meal on a budget. It sounds macabre, but I've been stockpiling chicken bones in the freezer for future soups. I think there's a ham bone in there too, but oh the possibilities for flavor with all those items!

Bone marrow is one of the most grotesque AND delicious things on earth. The first soup I ever made from scratch started with a ham bone, a cleaver and a spoon.
