Weekend of the Great Soup Swap.

I'm not sure where I first heard about soup swaps, but I knew it was an idea that I wanted to try.  I have close group of girlfriends that I knew would be up for this, so I hosted our first ever soup swap party over the weekend.   It was great and everyone decided that it should be an annual event!  If you want to host a soup swap, here is how we did it...

1. Decide on a date/host/who to invite

2. Everyone picks a recipe (and tells everyone what they are making ahead of time to ensure a good variety.)

3. Everyone makes their soup and divides it up into enough single-serving containers for everyone at the party.

4.  Freeze said soup.

5.  The party host makes their soup for the party....plus other goodies.

6. Consume soup.  Mine was an African sweet potato and peanut soup.

7.  Everyone gets to take home a sample of everyone else's soup!

This was such a fun idea to try out!  I've heard of other soup swaps where everyone just makes one big batch, and basically everyone chooses one that they want to bring home (with some sort of lottery system I guess...), but it seemed more fun for everyone to get to take home a little bit of each!

We ended up with the sweet potato soup I made, chicken noodle, wild rice, cream of asparagus, lentil and sausage, and ale & cheese.  Seriously, so much goodness in my freezer right now!  And the best part is that we have meals all week long!

I'd highly recommend having a soup swap party sometime this winter, you will love it!

I know this isn't a recipe (although I plan to share my soup recipe sometime), I am linking up with the ladies of Taste of Tuesday!  Visit Ashley and Jessica for more :)


  1. I love any swap that involves me leaving with food. haha I have never done a soup swap, but I have had a soup party where everyone just bought a different type of soup I loved it. I eat soup all year round though, my husband thinks it is crazy when I order it in July. haha

  2. This sounds like so much fun! What a totally different take on a food swap... perfect for winter! I'd love to have a freezer full of different soups and stews for those days when I don't know what to grab for lunch. May have to think about hosting one of these myself :)

    Hopped over from the link-up! <3

  3. What a fun idea! I've never heard of this but I absolutely love it! Who wouldn't love to have some yummy soup in the wintertime :)

  4. What a fabulous idea!! I've heard of cookie swaps that are just like this, but never thought to do soup instead. So fun!

  5. I haven't heard of a soup swap before but it's such a great idea! I want to try this with my girlfriends now.
