Due to difficulty procuring an ingredient I had to do a switch-a-roo with the soups this week. So, instead of doing soups 9 and 10, I did soups 9 and 11. What ingredient caused this problem? You guessed it, chicken gizzards! That means you have to wait one more week to hear about how I make out cooking the innards of a chicken.
The soups I have to present to you this week are..... (drum roll)....
Smoky Root Soup which comes to us from The Nourished Caveman and the #11 soup Meatball Noodle Soup which is from the blog Health Starts in the Kitchen.
I had a busy week scheduled, so on Sunday I made both of my soups so they'd be ready to go whenever I needed them. I got all my ingredients and tools out and once I got over my disappointment that I didn't need my immersion blender, I got started.

The Meatball Noodle Soup needed some more prep, in that I needed to roast a spaghetti squash. That's where the "noodle" comes from!

On taste, I would say at first my companion and I were not too impressed with this soup either. We were eating it for breakfast and it seemed to get better each day. I added some more salt and pepper, but I also think after sitting for a while more of the flavors started to combine. By the last day it reminded me almost of a stroganoff, I guess because of the beef and mushrooms.

Overall, these will probably not become our favorite soups from this list. But I'm glad we tried them and I'm sure I will be recreating them with my own twist in the future. Until then, I've got more soups to conquer on this list, including the gizzards! Make sure you check in next week to hear all about it!
