Hi Souptacular! Just LOVE the Tandoori soup! I wanted to share how I prepared it using some leftover beef ribs from a BBQ. I chose the slow cooker method and combined: 1 pouch of Tandoori Hot Pot, 2 cups beef broth, 6 cups water, 4 large beef bones. I cooked this together for 5 hours in my crockpot. Then I removed the bones and added: 1 cup of left-over cooked beef chunks, and 1 cup celery diced. That is it. It was a gourmet version of Beef Tandoori Soup like no other. I love the curry warmth! My family really thought I worked hard! – by Jason M. from Lethbridge
When I cook this in the slow cooker…be sure to give it a good stir before you leave for work-if not the rice sticks together a bit. When I get home I add 1 peeled, and diced potato, and 1-2 stalks of celery (finely chopped). Continue to cook in the slow cooker for an additional 30-45 minutes, then enjoy. This soup has TONS of ways to add to the flavour – but with Souptacular, less works just as well! – by Evelyn of Edmonton, Alberta
This recipe makes use of the carcass left over from a roast chicken or turkey and allows you to “stretch the chicken” into one more meal! INGREDIENTS: Souptacular Tandoori Soup, Roast chicken or turkey carcass, chopped veggies (use fresh or leftovers), 2 tsp grated ginger, 1/4 c. chopped parsley, 1/4 c. chopped fresh basil, 1 can (400 ml) of coconut milk. INSTRUCTIONS: Cover chicken/turkey bones with water and simmer on stove or in crockpot until remaining meat falls off the bones. Remove meat from bones and discard bones. Add Souptacular Tandoori Soup and simmer for 2 hours on stove. During the last 20 minutes, add chopped veggies (great way to use up leftovers), and simmer until tender. Add ginger, parsley, basil (or 2 tsp dried basil) and coconut milk (use regular or light). Season to taste and enjoy! – by Carol Haley, Soup-er Chef Contest Winner
