In a moment of sheer evil madness, while eating a more sophisticated potato soup, my mind came up with the idea of a ‘Hawaiian’ style soup. Hawaiian in the sense of the the pizza, which this tastes similar to, named because of the pineapple and with no relation to real Hawaiian culture. I was unable to find anything similar in a quick internet search, so now I get to share this concoction with the world and claim it was my own (although it would hardly be surprising if others have also dreamed this up).
Channeling the 1950’s, this comes from canned goods, but it could be upgraded with a homemade tomato soup, smoked ham, and more refined seasoning. This serves four with a decent bowlful. More than 4 cups of soup could be used for a ‘more dilute’ and less hearty soup, 6 cups would likely work well. 20 oz’s of pineapple is a relatively large amount, if you aren’t so keen on the pineapple you could cut that amount in half and still have plenty.
