What are your favorite soups?  Do you eat it with crackers?

Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding. Accepting yourself as the woman you are is very liberating.

Minestrone to which I add a spoon-full of Sambal. Lovely. I eat it with a crusty roll and butter

Crackers never eaten with soup.

No one has yet said they like stone soup. LOL

There are lots of soups that I like.  We can expand this to chowders too.

I like chicken soup for sure, if it has a lot of meaty chicken in it and not just broth.

Homemade turkey soup.  Made after Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Boil the carcass to get all of the meat off of the bones and to make the broth.  Then Potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, rice, barley, small pasta shells, Italian spices, Worcestershire sauce, and a little tabasco sauce.  The onions and pasta get added near the end so's not to overcook them.

It's a pretty hearty soup, no crackers required.

My wife use to buy broccoli just to make broccoli soup. I don't know her recipe but it seem very similar to what your describing.  It's very good, one of my favorites.  That would be the whole meal, maybe some baked bread with it.

I like a hearty chicken soup.  Noodles in it are just fine too.

I have two favorites.  One I've mastered and made my own.  The other I have to try to make at home.

My masterpiece is a copycat Zuppa Tuscana soup from Olive Garden.  When I make it, I make about 20 quarts.

1 pound of Sage Sausage
1 pound of Hot Italian Sausage
1 pound of Original Sausage
4 strips of Bacon, diced.
6 to 8 Potatoes, sliced thinly
1 large Onion, diced
1 bunch of Kale, stripped and torn into pieces
1 bulb of Garlic
1 TBsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
4 cups of Chicken Stock/Broth
1 quart of Heavy Whipping Cream
1 stick of Butter (8 TBsp)
1 or 2 cups of grated Parmesan-Romano cheese blend
Water

First, preheat the oven at 350, and place the garlic on a baking sheet, drizzle the olive oil and roast for about ten minutes.  Meanwhile, add the bacon to the stock pot, and cook for about five or six minutes.  Then add the sausuage.  Cook for about ten minutes.  Add the onion, cook until translucent.  The meats should be cooked and browned by now, and the garlic should be done.  Add the garlic to the pot with the chicken stock and potatoes.  Fill to 3/4 the top with water (everything should be covered by the liquid.  Add the Cayenne Pepper.  Cook on high, while covered for about 30 minutes.

Once the potatoes are done, reduce to a low heat and add the heavy cream and butter, give everything a good stir and cover.  Cook for about 15 minutes.  Add the cheese, cook for about ten minutes.  Add the Kale, cook for about two to five minutes.  Stir the bottom of the pot occasionally to ensure nothing sticks/burns.  Serve and add a sprinkle of more cheese to the top.

I'll eat like four bowls of this soup in one sitting.  One pot might last a week.

My second favorite soup is Miso soup.  For this soup I know that I"ll need:

Dashi (a fish stock)
Green Onion
Shiitake Mushrooms
Red Bean paste?
Soy Sauce?

And beyond that, I'm not sure.  I'll have to find a recipe again.  I love this soup so much that I'd eat it every morning, just like the Japanese do!  I order it every time I go to a Japanese restaurant.  Sadly, I haven't had it in about a year since that's when my budget dropped through the floor.
