I like almost all soups, but I make one very quickly when I get home late at night, its just a good chicken stock, sesame oil ,noodles ,(1 minute variety) soy sauce, wombock or any veg you like and prawns,(I always have them in the freezer) also shallots if I have them it's very quick and good with a glass of vino

The best soup isn't best because it tastes good (though it does) but because it gives you EXISTENTIAL SATISFACTION. It's made (almost) entirely from left-overs or rejects. So, you've roasted and eaten a chicken, but there are still the bones and cartiledge to use up. Put them in a large pan, and let simmer for many hours. Then, you've surely got a lot of left-over veggies, or ones that need eating. Set then to stew in another pan. You may have some almost empty jars or cans of sauces that have reached their 'use-by' date; wash them out, and add the liquor to the veggies. You'll also have some chicken fat: combine it with flour to make a roux, and set aside. Finally, strain the liquor off the chicken bones into a fresh pan; add the roux, and stir vigorously on a hot gas; add the veggies, and continue to stir; add such herbs and spices as you have to hand, and keep stirring.
To be frank, I tend to cheat a little bit with this recipe. There are many places where you can buy thick off-cuts of bacon very cheaply. I buy them, dice them, slice off the fat, and add then with the veggies. How to live well on nothing a year (paid quarterly) ! Thackeray was a brilliant man.
