Soups

How many soup posts can be made? Apparently thousands during the winter months.
A couple of weeks ago I started by making soups of every color, red, orange, yellow and green. I lost the majority of the photos and wasn't able to complete my project of going after purple, brown, and blue. Without completing my project, I show you two soups.

Green Kale Soup:
This soup used boiled chard and steamed broccoli, pureed it all with lots of spices and my green soup was done, and damn tasty.

Corn Chowder:
When I created this soup I had already created my yellow corn soup, so I went for a twist to my corn chowder. Caramelized onions, carrots, corn, tarragon and potatoes in a creamy soy and vegetable broth.
It was nice to have a stew-like meal with creamy potatoes.

I could see omnis being weary of the green kale soup (it's green!) but the corn chowder looks incredible - even my parents would be all over it.

Mmm, I love soup! I had split pea tonight.

those look amazing! Are those capers on the green soup?

The green soup is a bit odd looking, but it was so great!

The Kale soup has black salt on top. I should note that.

I need some desperate help making soup. Every time I made one, no matter where the recipe came from, it turns out bland. I know this is a very general question but what am I doing wrong?

Megan - I think good soups are all about a good base. I use a powdered vegetable broth I am fond of. Find a bullion you like.
I'm into fancy salts and I think they also add to the flavor after the soup is complete. yum.

Kale soup? That sounds right up my alley.
