hi bros, i recently got a job at an upscale retirement community. one of the responsibilities of my job is to come up with a soup for dinner service everyday, ideally using leftovers from the previous day. vegetable soups with a tomato base are forbidden. what are some ideas that could impress my boss?

    vegetable soup with a tomato base

    If it is upscale, patrons are not going to tolerate leftovers. They will easily figure that out.
    If they are retired and have disposable income, they're going to expect all broth and stocks are homemade. Easily just pull the top 20 ideas from Panera, every american soup, avogolemono, good onion soup from time to time, throwing in a couple thai or vietnamese, japanese soups with it. It's not hard. But, reusing ham shanks and turkey frames from the day before is far too much repetition in the same 48 hours. Monied people do not dine like peasants. Focus on a new roll and bread with the soups daily.

      there is no appreciable difference between blended soup made of vegetables just cooked, and vegetables cooked the day before. if you have 5kgs of boiled potatoes left over from dinner the night before, you'd be moronic not to use them for soup or mash

      what do you think people make stock with moron? their scraps and leftovers. it's perfectly normal for soup, in fact many staple varieties of soup came about specifically as a way to use up excess inventory.

      It's "people of money"

        I was correct. You are wrong.
        You can say "people of means" alternately to monied people, but not "people of money"
        And, in general, the usage of "of" following a verb is antiquated Englist and not easily understood by foreigners who speak English as a 2nd language. Though not wrong, there will always be a more used phrase.

    Sear chicken coated in salt, pepper, cumin, and olive oil
    Make a sofrito of onion, garlic, pepper, tomato, cilantro, & parsley
    Add water and chicken broth
    Add oregano & lime juice, taste, adjust spices
    Return chicken
    Cook potatoes, peas, carrots, and corn
    Serve with a slice of avocado, lime wedge, slice of avocado

    You could add rice, or remove the tomato, add more onion

      I'm fricking moronic, ignore the other slice of avocado. Also for spices, I usually just add some cumin and sazón, but do whatever you think works well

    Just keep a bunch of different stock bases and use whatever leftovers as the filler. I can't give you ideas without knowing what the fricking menu is, but it shouldn't be that difficult to digure out

      yes mostly the vegetables. trust me this isnt the first retirement community ive worked in and this definitely counts as upscale. your local community would never make a soup from scratch

      This is SOP for any high-end restaurant or other eating establishment

    >tomato base are forbidden
    what why? and are you allowed to include tomatoes for flavour or is it just fully banned?

      there was someone who would make vegetable soup every day and people got really sick of it

    curried sweet potato soup
    mushroom soup, either chicken broth with whole slices or blended
    chicken and leek soup (cooked chicken works great flaked into broth with leeks, i do this with leftover christmas turkey every year)
    broccoli and stilton soup (any brassica plus any sharp, strong flavoured cheese works but this is my fav combo)
    a milder variation to above would be cauliflower and cheddar, cauliflower cheese is probably something theyve had before so it will be a familiar flavour profile
    pumpkin/squash soup (lots of paprika and oregano, ideally include a little tomato for flavour)
    also, i'd advise going out and asking the patrons
    >hey what kind of soup do you like
    they will appreciate it

    Butternut Bisque. You can use canned pumpkin puree and nobody will care.

    Onions and tomato paste sauteed in butter.
    Blend it smooth with some heavy cream, chicken stock and sugar.
    Spice with white pepper, nutmeg and poultry herbs.

    shit I dont know, maybe impress your boss by using the leftovers. How do you expect anyone to give you recipes without knowing what you have left over?

    A good chowda would probably go over well, I’m assuming nice clams are out of the question (and risky) but I’m just as happy with bacon in it. Also beef stew (I’m sure that’s already on the menu), but maybe you can enhance with roasted veg (but not blackened because someone might complain).

    Agree with the other anon that good fresh bread is key, I’d actually also suggest that uncooked flour tortillas (like the tortillaland ones you can get at Costco) come out very cracker like when cooked without oil - unfortunately they can have relatively sharp edges when you break apart full tortillas, but you could probably cut tortillas into smaller pieces and bake them and have some nice fresh crackers (cool, brush with butter, and bake a little more if you want them even more flavorful).

    Ex-chef here, spent some time doing exactly this, except at a golf retirement resort for jillionaires. Man, old people love HOT soup, can't ever be too hot. Lemme dig up my soup notebook.

    Bay Scallop Chowder
    Roast Carrot
    Chicken Kale White Bean
    Loaded Potato
    Garden Veg
    Tuscan Bean
    Tomato Basil
    Corn Chowder
    Minestrone
    Red Pepper and Sausage
    Chicken and Wild Rice
    French Onion
    Butternut Bisque

    That's what I had written down, soup is great cooking practice, and it's easy, just make it taste good.

    just prepare a mixed vegetable soup and pick one of the veggies to be the sauce base each time, just remove some of the chosen veg and blend with a bit of broth, mix it back
