Enter Our SoupOrBowl Recipe Contest!

Friday, January 24, 2014

This year, people from across the country will brave the cold at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium to participate live in one of America's most beloved traditions: The Super Bowl. Even though we all won't be shelling out big bucks to head to the stadium on game day to freeze our butts off, we thought we'd come up with a way for public radio listeners all across the country to have a little half time fun.

We're hosting a recipe contest—Takeaway style. We want your best Super Bowl half-time recipes—your soup or bowl recipes, that is.

Submit your best soup recipe or a food that goes in a bowl. We’re not talking about dips here people—we want recipes for real food!

Whether your team made it to the playoffs or not, we dare you to give us your best, heartiest hot recipe. But it's got to be either soup or something that's hot and can be served in a bowl to fit in with our "Soup or Bowl" theme.

Submit your recipe below and our judge Dan Pashman, founder and host of the Sporkful Podcast, along with the foodie folks here at WNYC, will whittle down the best entries to four dishes before game day. If you want to brag about your recipe or submit a photo tell us about it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram by using the hashtag #SoupOrBowl.

If you win, the glory of Dan and our Host John Hockenberry noshing your recipe on air is yours! (Ditto for the bragging rights). Good luck and happy cooking.

Listen to our "Soup or Bowl Shuffle" while you fill out the form below. Deadline has been extended!: Entries are due by Friday, January 24.

Oooo, does "save your favorites" refer to the entries or will they remain secret during the contest?

Submission for soup r bowl....my recipe is easy and good.

Large can of chic peas that you rinse for purity
or you can cook chic peas if you like
You add to a pot half filled with water
Add sliced carrots
Add chopped onion
Add fresh rosemary, thyme and sage I keep fresh herbs in a glass of fresh water outside the frig. and chopped the herbs and put them in the pot.
Roast 2 cloves of garlic in olive oil.Add salt and black pepper to taste
fresh curry, yellow spice

add three tablespoons of orzo or pastina to thicken
Add parsley at the end with xvirgin olive oil

Cook all ingredients until soft

I have a long stainless steel mixer that you can puree right in the pot without pouring into a blender, and
it is one of my fav tools in the kitchen.

Add sliced and cleaned fresh mushrooms. Bring to boil and serve with a drizzle of xvirgin olive oil, parsley and/or cilantro. Warmed pita bread is ideal.

Whoever wins, I hope they take my advise and drink heavily while cooking, so that it can be a true "Stuper Bowl."

After all the regular NFL and college football chili - the Super Bowl deserves something special. Hope you like the Mulligatawny recipe which, if you search it on the web, comes in many more varieties.

Tsk, tsk... watch your grammar: "of Dan and I noshing" Super Bowl chili.
