    3. Hannah Olivia

    9. CM FourZeroNine

      Pro-Tip on the tomato soup: instead of using a cup of water, pour the water into the can of the tomatoes that you were using. That way the water even adds more tomato flavour to the soup! Great vid as always man

    10. Nyan Cat

      You sound like Bonzi Buddy with a deep voice

      This video made me feel guilty, like I did something wrong, even though I didn't do anything at all. ... could be 'cuz I'm drunk and it sounds like Babish is disappointed in me....but I have no idea why.

    15. Solem

    46. S Holmes

      I just made the tomato soup and I had to make some changes because I don’t have molasses and white bread but godDAMN it’s so good

    47. knmayberry

      Pro tip on the corn soup from an Iowan. After you cut off the corn kernels, scrape the corn cob with the back of your knife to get most of the pulp out. The majority of the sweet flavor and creamy consistency is in those remnants, especially if the corn is in season. You won't have to add nearly as much cream or sugar.

      1. Nyan Cat

        @Hex Flareheart okey

      2. Hex Flareheart

        @Nyan Cat I second this statement.

    49. M. Smith

      I want to try your Choclo Soup. Any suggestions for a heartier version?

    50. Retro_WrathX13

      The amount of times you said Corn reminded me of the Talon Actual Champion spotlight

    51. Cirian Пизда

      Just made the Elote Soup. And holy god is it fantastic! We served it in small bread bowls and it was super good. Will be making it again!

    52. Vixor

      This is like the Mad Lib dinner party!

    53. Gage Fleming

      When making a pan sauce that calls for deglazing with wine or other alcohol what kind of substitution can be made for a home cook not old enough to purchase alcohol?

      1. Stuart Odekirk

        Stock or broth works decently well for most recipes, or whatever your liquid component is going to be. It really depends on what you're making

    54. xX_Harold_Xx

      Anti vax moms got to babish

    55. Hayley Stephenson

      Aww poor guy😣 get well soon ☺️☺️

    56. WolfBot 0.7.2

    57. shut up nerd

      Maybe y'all can substitute heavy cream with coconut cream. Haven't tried it tho

      1. Nyan Cat


    58. Prue Stark

      I’m about to have jaw surgery and I’ll have to get my jaw wired shut so I’ll be eating everything through a straw for eight weeks and this is SO helpful! 😭❤️

    59. Christina Singleton


    60. Jordan Gordon

      should have added a gastric which is sugar and white wine vinegar brought up to the boil to dissolve the sugar this will bring out flavors from the tomato because tomato's love acid from the vinegar

    61. Patrick Lacey

      Why are you always sick babs?

    62. D. Ski

    67. R De Roche

      Dam hes so fucking hot

    68. ftullo96

      My little brother is allergic to dairy products, so I used margarine instead of butter. But when I made it for him he said "It feels wrong to eat this because how creamy it is" Definitely a good recipe to try at home

    69. Jãnis Graudins

      You should of made gaspacho

    70. Floris Cramer

      You have to try dutch pea soup

    71. mdub k20

    73. softgoddessTM

      i hope this helps me learn how to cook better

    74. GAO Gameplays and others

      How many bowls would you say the amount of ingredients you listed for the elote soup would make?

      1. Hannah Olivia

        GAO Gameplays and others I made this. Mine made two heaping bowls, or 3 regular serving size bowls. If serving to others, I’d double the recipe.

    75. incognito 82


    76. Alec Lawson

      I'm noticing that me and Babish have quite a few things in common; hating cilantro, loving burgers, and getting sick a lot, yet still doing what we enjoy doing

    77. Leviathis Krade

      how does bread make a soup creamy?

    78. Just_HeatWave

      I was sick for a while and lost my appetite for anything. Your channel makes me feel better, atleast to the point where I'm willing to eat.

    79. TheSilverPhoenix100

      I'd love to see you make Yeto's soup from Legend of Zelda

    80. Lizzie

      A video over mirin wine? I'd love to know how to use it.

    81. Prestige Clash

      A dollop of sour cream is better in the soup.

    82. vampirelordx1

      Grilled Cheese but instead of American, Mozzarella

    83. Sam Owens

      Everyone else at the end: oh my God it looks so good In my head: you just ruined a perfectly good grilled cheese

    84. Tanhar71

      I had an ad for soup just before this... wtf

      1. Moreli Binyamini Harel

        I unsubscribed because he stole Vinny

    92. RepaidChalice37

      I have a challenge for you : bobs burgers recently released a new episode called “Romin bob-iday” where he ends up helping Patricia completely a catering for 77 sandwiches needing to be picked up in 40 minutes! Your challenge is to grab a friend and make all 77 of the sandwiches listed on her board in 40 minutes or less! I paused the show a few times and you can clearly read the sandwich ingredients and a few are sung about in the ending credits
