Super Easy Solar Soup

New Sun Oven

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you, it’s packed with flavor. And don’t let the amount of garlic scare you, it mellows as it cooks and melds perfectly with the beans. If you can’t find cranberry beans use cannellini or great northern instead.

Sun Oven Smooth and Garlicky Bean Soup

Ingredients

1 pound dried cranberry beans, picked over, rinsed, soaked overnight, and drained

10 cups water

1 large garlic bulb

10 stems flat-leaf parsley

6 sprigs fresh thyme

East Meets West Solar Soup

Bonito Pasta e Ceci

Bonito flakes lend a nice depth of flavor to this traditional Roman soup but are entirely optional. They can be found in the Japanese section of a good Asian market. If you can’t find them, or prefer a vegetarian soup, don’t worry,  the Romans have been enjoying chickpea and pasta soup for centuries without them.

Sun Oven Chickpea Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1 white onion, finely chopped

1 carrot, finely chopped

1 stalk celery, finely chopped

1 whole dried hot red pepper

1 sprig rosemary

Chickpea (garbanzo) flour is my new favorite ingredient. When used in soups it creates a smooth texture and enhances the flavor, eliminating the need for cheese or cream.

Creamy Sun Oven Vegan Soup

Ingredients

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 small potato (about 3-ounces), well scrubbed and diced

1 bag (1-pound) frozen California blend vegetables

2 tablespoons chickpea flour

Sunny Potato Soup

Bacon!

The bacon can be cooked ahead of time or along with the soup. If cooking it with the soup, turn the lid upside down on the soup pot and set the pan with the bacon on top, and keep an eye on it. The bacon will cook faster than the soup and, unlike most everything else, it can burn in the Sun Oven.

Sun Oven Leek and Potato Soup

Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 leeks, (white and pale green parts only) finely sliced

1 onion, finely chopped

Solar Summer Soup

Bread Tomato Soup

We often pack a picnic and go hiking in the afternoon. Lately I’ve been bringing sandwiches that are a meal on their own. I take sourdough bread, hollow it out, and stuff it with all sorts of good stuff. The only problem was what to do with all the soft part of the bread. This soup, inspired by a classic Italian recipe, came to the rescue. It’s good warm or at room temperature; perfect for a hot summer evening.

Sun Oven Summer Tomato Bread Soup

Ingredients

1 pound country-style bread, crusts trimmed

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 or 2 ham hocks

3 carrots, peeled and finely chopped

1 onion, finely chopped

Solar Clam Chowder

Sun Oven Saute

I wish more restaurants would serve Manhattan style clam chowder. It’s much lighter than the creamy n

New England version. Luckily it’s easy to make in the Sun Oven.

2 stalks celery, finely chopped

2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped

1 onion, finely chopped
