Check this shit out!
This article is about one Bad Grandma fan's experience with making one of Bad Grandma’s Recipe Hell recipes: The Pink Green Goddess Soup. Read on to learn how Steph made this dish AND earned herself a free dishtowel.
~Below is Steph's account of her cooking of the soup. I hope you'll enjoy the read as much as I did! Steph says:
Hope this note finds you well, and not worn out. I decided to make one of your Recipe Hell recipes last night for dinner. The freaky, funky and very fucked up looking Pink Green Goddess Soup. My picture doesn’t do the strangeness justice, LOL. And it was hard to get the picture lighter under my kitchen light, unfortunately.
As for the pink color, well it was pink in the blender BEFORE adding in the celery and chiles. The milk makes it pink. But once you add the celery and chiles it looks more like thick Calamine Lotion, with chunks. Not like the pretty picture you posted. Adding the sour cream just makes the soup colder (it says not to boil it but heating it on medium doesn’t get it hot enough when you’re going to add a ½ cup of something cold). We had to warm it up in the microwave. I added cheese to the top and put it in sourdough bread bowls, thought it would be more pretty for presentation. I think I was mistaken. The cheese added thickness to it, and was an asset. I did taste it before adding it, it was still good without.
One of the alternate ways of trying it said to make it cold. I don’t think I’d recommend it cold. Just stick to the normal cold soups and leave this one out.
All in all, it was good. We ate everything that was in our bread bowl and ½ our bowls. Neither of us (hubby nor me) had 2nds, which did leave a lot of extra left over. I don’t think I’d make it again, but I am glad we tried something new.
~Thanks again Steph. I all admire your tenacity and courage to attempt to make a pink food.
Do you think you have what it takes?
Bad Grandma suspects that one hasn’t truly lived until having eaten pink soup. So if you make a bowl of it and send me photos, I’ll send you the free Bad Grandma dishtowel of your choice. (Just like Steph!)
As always, if you want to alter the recipe some to make it easier or more pleasant for your palate, go right ahead – I’ll still send ya the towel.
Just send your photos and contact info to grandma (at) badgrandmadesigns.com. I can’t wait to post your souptastic creations.
For the love of all that is pink,
Steph received her towel prize ("Say Perhaps To Drugs") in the mail after submitting her entry. She was kind enough to send in a photo (love you Steph!). You too can submit your take on a Recipe Hell meal to earn a free towel!
