Foodie Corner – 2017 – Post #6 – Mix-‘n’-Match Citrus-Wine Soup

My motto used to be “If it didn’t get done in the microwave, it didn’t get done.” I’ve since learned to use my electric oven and its four-burner cooktop. But …

Foodie Corner – 2017 – Post #6 – Mix-‘n’-Match Citrus-Wine Soup

What is a nice, light soup for warmer weather?

My two cents, but please share yours:

The answer is any version of this mix-‘n’-match soup.

In a deep microwave pot, add in the following.

  • 3-4c Broth (choose from chicken, beef, mushroom, tomato, or vegetable)
  • 1.5-2c Wine (choose from white, rosé, red, sparkling, or any other alcoholic beverage–but never use cooking wine)
  • Citrus juice from 2-4 lemons (or equivalent amount from limes, oranges, or pineapple)
  • 2-4t Garlic powder
  • 1-2c Precooked shredded meat, beans, fish chunks, or chopped shellfish
  • 1-2c Diced precooked vegetables (any assortment you prefer)
  • 4T Butter (olive oil or coconut oil–only if you must, butter is much better)

Stir, cover, and nuke for 5-8 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and chopped herbs for a garnish. Serve with well-buttered toast or garlic bread for dipping in the soup. As always, be sure to play with this recipe and make it your own. Enjoy.


  1. What an unusual mix of ingredients. I’m going to have to try it 🙂

    • Remember, D. Wallace, to play with this mix of ingredients, and make it your own. Enjoy. And cheers, Ashley
