Seven soups every Saturday: South American soup recipes


I know what you're thinking. South America: so many national and regional culinary identities, how can you lump the entire continent into one post? Certain staple ingredients -- corn, potatoes, chicken, garlic, fish, yuca -- define many of the cuisines of South American countries, and it's fun to take a look at those ingredients interpreted in different ways.

Seven South American soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Encebollado de pescado/Ecuadorian fresh tuna soup with pickled onions, from Laylita's Recipes

Changua (Colombian egg and milk soup), from My Colombian Recipes

Ajiaco Bogotano, from Andrea Meyers

Parihuela (Peruvian seafood soup), from Fruitcake or Nuts

Cazuela de ave (Chilean chicken soup), from Fresh Approach Cooking

Brazilian black bean soup, from The Taste Space

Sopa de sorrel, from From Argentina with Love

Find more delicious South American soup recipes on Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.

What an interesting collection of soup recipes. I definitely don't know much about South American cooking compared to other parts of the world.

We had some delicious soups when we visited Chile and Argentina last year. Thanks for the nice roundup and memories!

Maris, many thanks to Andrea for sharing her photo for a favorite Colombian soup.

Janet, I agree -- soup is a great way to explore the world.

Amy, I'm so glad you think so. I hope you'll find a few to try.

Kalyn, I haven't traveled very much in South America, but I'm fortunate to have learned a few recipes from friends from Guyana and Brazil.

Susie, would love to share some of your recipes!

Hi Lydia, I love this blog! I've never been good at making soup, but I'm working on it because I believe it's important. I'm wondering if you've ever tried the Bolivian "sopa de mani" (peanut soup)? It's absolutely amazing! Not that I've ever made it, but I've eaten it and funny enough, it doesn't really taste like peanuts. It would be a great addition here!
