Growing up on the farm without a lot of money, Mom learned how to cook like Grandma.
They had plenty of ways to make something out of nothing. Some recipes were handed down through the generations and others they got from friends and neighbors. My grandparents just happened to live on the same road as a nice Amish family. They would often visit one another, swap foods for services, and share stories and recipes.
One of the recipes that Grandma got from that family was Friendship soup. Seemed fitting seeings as they really were friends. I remember eating it all the time when I was younger. When I found the same recipe on Recipe Lion, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself at home.
It was just as yummy and simple to make as what I remembered. I like to add a few more vegetables to mine, especially when I’m not sharing with my picky kids. It’s a great dish to have around when we aren’t feeling the greatest. It is the ultimate comfort food on those drab winter days too.
This soup recipe is the perfect one for giving. You can add all of the dry ingredients to a mason jar, attach a card with the directions, and pass them out to all of your friends. It’s an excellent option when you are looking to cheer someone up who is sad or make someone feel better that is sick. I like to give it away during the holidays too because it is a huge time saver!
Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at What The Fork’s For Dinner:
One of our first recipes on What the “Forks” for Dinner? was Hamburger Soup. It has been one of our most popular recipes and it is Tim and I’s personal favorite.
I can see why!
