Potato, Leek and Broccoli Soup with Pancetta Crumbs
During its first year, Essex Farm harvested 10,000 pounds of potatoes in just one day; Kristin Kimball turned some of them into potato-leek soup. If you have a blender and good chicken broth, she swears it's one of the easiest soups to make. This version has a fabulous topping of supercrispy sourdough and pancetta crumbs mixed with sage and rosemary.

Creamy Broccoli Soup with Cheddar Crisps
For an ingenious twist on the classic combination of broccoli and melted cheddar, Barbara Lynch serves a warming broccoli soup with cheddar crisps. Try making the crisps with Mimolette, an orange-hued semihard cheese from France, which has a milder, nuttier flavor than cheddar. The soup is equally good with cauliflower or celery root in place of the broccoli.
Quick Turkey and Broccoli Soup
If you have fresh broccoli instead of frozen, cook it a little longer than the frozen version, which is often already par boiled.
