    Make your own version of Ratatouille. Which is eggplant peppers, tomatoes, zucchini,onions all cooked down to make a veg. soup cold or hot. There are so many great vegetables to work with, try a variation.

    An incredibly flavorful crystal clear (as in, not cloudy) broth

    Something you can puree and top w/ sour cream; maybe pumpkin or butternut squash?

    a dessert soup, made w/ cream or H&H or yogurt and fresh fruit (peaches, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon, honeydew, anything juicy)

    think of a favorite dish, and convert it to a soup. Like a loaded baked potato became Potato Soup and is garnished w/ bacon, cheese, chives, and sour cream. So think of another calssic dish, likeTurkey Tetrazini, or Corned Beef & Cabbage, BLT or Reuben Sandwich, or Hot Tamles w/ Chili & Cheese. Hope this makes sense.

    What about sweet potatoes? There are potato soups but I never heard of a sweet potato soup. The question would be whether to make it sweet or savory? Somehow making a soup that reflects the flavors of sweet potato casserole would be sweet but I do know that sweet potatoes are really good with onion soup mix on them....mmmm. A french onion sweet potato soup? Savory seems like it would be the best but if a good sweet version with marshmellows melted on top like they do the cheese on a french onion soup...

    Did I gross you out? I must be in the mood for sweet potatoes!!! Good luck!

    try a cold soup. One with icecream blended to soup consistency

    you can also try making a sweet soup. Since its a brand new recipe, you can market it well.. saying its a "new concept in culinary excellence"

    How about turning a classic entree into a soup? Like, say, fish & chip soup. Or maybe a BLT (or even better, BLTA) soup?

    i love making new recipes! (fyi, im not some person who knows nothing about cullinary skills giving you advice!)

    i've never tried this, but an idea could be a chicken soup with pureed bananas, walnuts, egg noodles, rosemary, & lemon peper.

    another idea might be a soup based on chicken mole, with a bittersweet chocolate/garlic/chili powder/cumin/cinnamon/tomatoe/chicken broth stock with chicken, chipotle & bell peppers, diced tomatoes, & peanuts garnished with toasted pumpkin seeds.

    hope that helped!
