No Croutons Required Does Random Recipes

Dom and I have teamed up this month and we are doing a joint challenge. So for those of you have been wondering what we have been up to. Voila!
No Croutons Required Does Random Recipes.

Dom and I would like you to select a random soup recipe, make it and post it for our challenge. Randomly select a soup from one of your cookbooks. They tend to be at the beginning, so it should be easy enough. It is up to you how you choose the cookbook, then the recipe. Get someone else involved if you like.

The Rules:

1. The soup must be suitable for vegetarians (you can adapt a recipe to make it vegetarian).
2. Make and post your entry, using the logo and linking to both Belleau Kitchen & Tinned Tomatoes.
3. Email your entry by the 29th of November 2011 to myself ( or Dom ( Don't worry you will make it into the roundup. Please be sure to include:

* your name
* name of your blog
* blog url
* name of your soup
* name of the cookbook your soup came from
* soup post url
* your location

The winner will be chosen by Dom and myself and will be announced at the same time as the roundup on the first of December 2011. The winner will receive a special edition of the No Croutons Required Winner's badge for their blog and much kudos.

We hope you will all join in and can't wait to see your entries.

Jac & Dom


  1. What a great challenge. I'll try and get involved this month, as I'm fully intent on becoming a regular blogger again.

  2. sounds like a great challenge... If I get the chance i'll try and do it this month ;0) ... plus that Dominic is soooo HOT!

  3. Oooh, I've been meaning to join in both of these challenges, and now I can do both in one go! Fantastic.
    But what's the deadline? (Apologies I'm being an idiot and it's in there somewhere!)

  4. Fab idea and great team up. I've never done a random recipe before, so am excited about trying this.

  5. I don't know...that Dom doesn't half big himself up! Lovely idea Jac, I did wonder what was going on between you and Dom - all that whispering on Twitter, hinting and teasing us poor bloggers. Will delve into my cook books at the weekend.

  6. A really lovely challenge for the season too...I have never made a soup recipe from a book in my life, but make my own up all the time!

  7. I love soup in autumn. Cant wait to see all the delicious entries :)

  8. Oh no - I have been avoiding random recipes event - no doubt due to control freak tendencies! Will have to have a think about how I do this - maybe I can just see which soup sylvia tears out of a cookbook

  9. FABULOUS NCR and RR combined challenge as am I am a soup monster, this should be wonderful for me!

  10. Thanks Jacqueline, this sounds like fun! Am going to have a look through some cookbooks now.

  11. Random soup! Does this mean I can close my eyes and grab whatever comes to hand in the fridge?! ;-)
