This is my take on tortilla soup, a spicy, sour, rich and flavorful meal in a dish! It uses sous vide pulled pork as the base protein.
If you are like my family, and flavorful gravy is a highlight of the meal, you'll need to make or buy turkey stock. I always recommend making your own and there are many ways to make a stock, depending on what you are planning on using it for, but at its most basic, it's just water, meat, bones, vegetables, herbs and spices simmered for a long time. If you have a pressure cooker I highly recommend using it, it produces a richer, deeper stock than simmering it...plus you don't have to tend the stove for an hour or two!
Red kuri squash is a nutty and sweet winter squash. It can be used in most dishes that call for butternut squash or pumpkin and it is a favorite of mine to use in late fall. Cooking it with sous vide makes it an easy process with very little cleanup at the end.

I made my creamy sous vide parsnip soup into a lighter version that still retains much of the creaminess of the original while using much less butter and cream. The soup will get smoother and smoother the more chicken stock you add, so you can tailor it to the texture you prefer. I love to serve it with some hearty whole grain bread you can use to sop up all the soup.
People often don't think about adding sous vide chicken to dishes that would normally cook it. A great example is this flavorful chicken soup. Normally you cook the chicken in the soup, but it usually dries it out and overcooks it. Making the soup separately with some flavorful chicken stock and lots of vegetables while you cook the chicken sous vide results in more tender chunks of chicken.
My wife loves a rich and spicy tortilla soup so I've been working on a go-to recipe I can make for her. There's lots of ingredients, so it can look intimidating, but it is actually really easy to put together. The magic begins by sous viding a pork shoulder or pork butt to shred in the soup! The smell of the soup cooking on the stove will also fill your house with anticipation for dinner! This recipe makes a ton of soup, but it is real easy to freeze the leftovers for easy meals in a week or two.
I recently took a Thai cooking class at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan and ever since I've been trying to work traditional Thai flavors into my cooking. Classic Thai food has an amazing mix of hot, salty, and sour and I tried to work that into this flavorful soup. The soup pops in your mouth, with bright highs of all the flavor combinations.
Making pureed soups is very easy to do with sous vide. Cooking the vegetables for between one and four hours allows them to break down fully, making it easy to simply add some liquid and puree them into a soup.
At this time of cantaloupe is just starting to come into season. They are tender and sweet and barely resemble the bland and watery winter versions. The local farmers market recently had some "Sugar Kiss" melons that I couldn't resist.
This soup is easy to put together, highlights the flavors of
strawberries, and is light and refreshing. Xanthan gum helps hold it together and traps the bubbles created from pureeing it, keeping it a little frothy.
In this soup recipe I pressure cook butternut squash along with some bacon and onion to add depth of flavor and smokiness. Then serve it topped off with some sage and Gruyere or Swiss cheese.
Roasted red peppers are a classic Italian offering and this recipe uses the whipping siphon to aerate them into a light, smooth soup. The amount of agar can be adjusted to
easily control the thickness of the soup. In addition to serving it as a soup, this foam can be used in many
different ways to turn traditional dishes into modern masterpieces.
This recipe makes fresh cantaloupe and honeydew melons into a simple flavorful soup, then turns it into little spheres that my guests can pop into their mouths. By using a modernist spherification technique and the modernist ingredients of calcium lactate and sodium alginate, you too can make a fun take on this favorite summer food!
This classic bacon cheddar broccoli soup recipe uses the modernist ingredient of sodium citrate to help it stay together without diluting the flavor of the cheese with flour and other starches. The result is a super smooth, super cheesy soup.
When watermelon is in season it's hard to resist. For some parties you need nothing more than to slice it and hand it out with paper towels for people to scarf down. However, sometimes you want something a little more refined and that's where this recipe comes in.
Sweet green grapes are another favorite snack of mine and they're a great party food because most people really like them. For this more upscale dish I turn them into a sweet, fizzy soup. The xanthan gum helps hold the particles in suspension and the carbonation effect adds a pleasant tingle and tang to it.
For this soup, the spicy flavor of ginger really complements the super-sweet carrot flavor that develops in the soup. I like to finish it off with a little butter and basil and cilantro leaves.
My mother-in-law always cooks great meals for us when we come to visit. She recently cooked a wonderful sweet potato soup that I thought would be great in a modernist preparation. I've roasted the sweet potatoes and added some molasses, ginger, and thyme for extra depth of flavor.
While this recipe calls for many exotic ingredients they can be left out and the soup will still be very good. I've marked the ones that aren't critical to the soup as optional but I would try to add in as many as possible for the deepest flavor.
