Hi everyone,

As you might know if you have read any of my posts, my son lived on soup for lunch and soup for dinner for about 15 months. So I had to get a whole meal into a bowl! Here are some of the recipies that we used. When I first started adding oil, I began with 100ml per pot, gradually building up to about 300ml. 

I also added a Benecalorie to each soup for the calories but also for the protein and zinc. The trick is to make sure the soup is not too hot and stir like mad. I began with 1tsp and built up as much as I could. Each soup has a different amount it can take before it splits and you end up with a greasy puddle on top of the soup.

I reckon my son knew that I did all this but he could pretend he didn't and ate it all.

I bought a load of single portion containers and would freeze them. That way I could offer a different soup for each meal and he got lots of variety.

Most of the soups can also be fully blended depending on preference

Leek and Potato (Serves 6, 788cals)
2 carrots, sliced
2 onions, diced
2 sticks celery, sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
200g bacon lardons
2tbsp oil
          Saute until soft

400g potatoes, diced
200g yellow lentils
          Add to above with just enough vegetable stock to cover, you can always add more later. Cook about 20 mins until tender.

300g leeks, sliced
          Add to above and cook for 10 mins

300ml flavourless oil
          Put 2 or3 ladelfuls in the blender with the oil and whizz away. Add back to the soup and stir well. 

Pea and Pesto Soup (serves 6, 555cals)
1 carrot, sliced
1/2 leek, sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 sticks celery, sliced
2 onion, diced
          Saute until soft

Add 450g peas 
          Add to above with just enough vegetable stock to cover, you can always add more later. Cook about 10 mins.

Meanwhile, cook 175g green split peas in a separate pot per directions on packet.
Also, cook 150g (4 medium) potatoes separately (or use leftovers)

Blend
1/2 the cooked green split peas and any remaining cooking liquid,
300ml flavourless oil and
3 tbsp pesto

Add back to the soup, together with sliced potatoes and mix well

Sweet Potato and Chirozo soup (serves 6, 765 cals)
2 carrots, sliced
2 sticks celery, sliced
2 onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
800g orange sweet potato, diced
400g spicy chirozo ring, sliced
Handful fresh parsley, chopped
1 heaped tsp curry paste
1 chilli sliced
           Saute for about 10 mins

250g red lentils
          Add about 1 litre veg stock and cook for 20 mins or so.

225ml flavourless oil
Put 2 or3 ladelfuls in the blender with the oil and whizz away. Add back to the soup and stir well. 

Carrot Soup (Serves 6, 738 cals)
600g carrots, sliced
2 onions, diced
1 small sweet potato, diced
1/2 butternut squash, diced
         Saute until softened.

250g red lentils
4 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
pinch chilli flakes
        Add to the veg and cover with veg stock. Cook until the lentils are soft.

300ml flavourless oil
          Put 2 or3 ladelfuls in the blender with the oil and whizz away. Add back to the soup and stir well.

Keep on cookin' (and planning ... and shopping ... and washing up..sigh) 

The most tedious and the most important work of my life all at the same time! But we have our son back and it was so worth it.

Warm wishes,
D

Yep, these are the calorie counts assuming the full amount of oil and that you get 6 portions per batch. I use a free app, my fitness pal. I can't swear that they are perfectly accurate but I've found them close enough.

HI deenl,
thanks for the soup ideas. Soup and smoothies, that are the most easiest things for high calories on small portions. We blended nearly all soups so you can hide nearly everything in it [wink] Freezing is a great idea, it takes a lot of stress away and you get it ready quite soon.

My D 13 was Dx has Celiac disease.  I was wondering if anyone would share some menu ideas an recipes that are very HIGH calories. D also has oral sensory difficulties. Does anyone have some suggestions for meals, snacks, or drinks . I am new at this and already am getting burned out trying to think of what to give her. The nutritionist wants us increase calories from 3400-3800 a day. She says EVERY meal hurts her not matter what it is. Foods she once liked to eat and would ask for as snacks she no longer wants . This is all in the past 3 months. I'm really at a loss. Thanks for any help

kc13bandit welcome to the forum. I trust you have searched through this thread. There are indeed some very high calorie recipes here, you can also look at the high calorie snacks thread. 4000 calories plus is not at all uncommon for many of the parents here. It does take a lot of effort, and unfortunately it is hard on the children too, eating more than feels comfortable. Oils are your new best friends.
