Isn't "My dad really /loves/ soup" correct as well? The only accepted correct versions use the word like, but phrase the sentence differently.

I agree, I was always taught that любить was to love

See olimo's guide to liking and loving, perhaps that will help. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11754722

I agree. Furthermore, they almost expect "love" in the Swedish lessons, they don't distinguish early on, and then they start expecting "like." (Regarding alskar / tycker om.) It's pretty inconsistent.

I'm comparing this problem to the Swedish course I'm taking on here.

Well, it's not a problem here. In this course, любить used in the meaning of "like" is expected to be translated as "like"

Bad audio on this one. It sounds like, "Мой папу очень любит сок."
