I have posted quite a few soup recipes on the blog –  One Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup, Easy French Onion Soup, Crockpot Butternut Squash Soup (VG) – the list goes on. But what do all these soups have in common? They scream WINTER! Soup doesn’t just have to be for winter! No, my friends, soup can be great in the summer as well!

    3-Ingredient Broccoli Soup (V)

    Here’s the thing about soup – one bowl is NEVER enough. Soup is so warm and satisfying, its hard to stop yourself from getting a second helping! Or third! But, when so many delicious soups are jam packed with cream and other not so healthy ingredients, you really should stick to the one bowl! With this 3-Ingredient Broccoli Soup, WORRY NO MORE! Rich, creamy, and delicious – yet made with ONLY THREE INGREDIENTS!! WHHAAAATTTT? I know its crazy. Over time I have learned how HUGE of a difference any recipe can be when you use broth rather than water. This recipe was inspired by a recipe from Broma Bakery –…

    Chicken Tortilla Gumbo

    This Chicken Tortilla Gumbo was a completely delicious surprise! When I first made it, I never thought it would be something that I would post here – but we loved it so much, I just had to share! The birth of this recipe is a funny story actually… A few weeks back Jake and I went to the grocery store together. Now you might not think this is a big deal, but Jake NEVER comes to the grocery store with me! So I was excited. It was a cold wintery Sunday and he had suggested that I make Chicken Tortilla Soup for dinner – great! Problem was, we got to…

    Roasted Carrot Soup

    Cold winter weather calls for comforting, hearty soups. This Roasted Carrot Soup is sure to warm you up. Not to mention, its packed with healthy veggies (a.k.a. carrots), so you can get your daily source of veggies in without even realizing it! I absolutely love any soup – but I’ve realized, I much prefer a blended soup to a broth based soup (unless its ramen… because I LOVE ramen noodle soup). Otherwise, in terms of popular soups – sure chicken noodle is great, or a nice minestrone, but to me there is something so comforting about a blended soup – like potato leek, butternut squash, or even pea soup. This…

So flavorful, delicious – and did I mention, it’s EASY! The recipe can be made completely vegetarian or vegan – all you need is to use a broth and wonton that suits you! I chose to use chicken broth with pre-made Chicken Cilantro…

    Easy French Onion Soup

    Lately, time just seems to be FLYING by! How is it already March?? I feel like it was just Christmas-time and the New Year! Unfortunately, winter is just not flying by fast enough. I swear, every year I tell myself – “March! In March, it’ll be warmer.” Then March comes and goes – and its still cold out! Not this year, I am not getting my hopes up! Instead, I am preparing for the cold with this incredibly Easy French Onion Soup! Just like I mentioned in my last post for Easy Red Thai Chickpea Curry, ironically, I did not always like French Onion soup. My mom would make it in…

    Are you a fan of Potato Leek soup? If so, you are going to LOVE this Cauliflower Potato and Leek Soup. I guarantee it! As long as I can remember, one of my favorite dishes has always been my dad’s Potato Leek soup. That’s right folks – not just ANY Potato Leek soup. My favorite has to be made by my dad. It is warm, creamy, full of potato chunks, and rich with flavor. No other Potato Leek soup has every matched up!

    One Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

    Its official – I’ve got the fever. No, I am not sick. But I have got SOUP FEVER! Sorry that is so lame, I know – but it’s true! I am love love loving soup right now. After enjoying a nice hot bowl of my Crockpot Turkey, White Bean, Bacon Chili two weekends ago, and then ANOTHER amazing bowl of Butternut Squash Soup this past weekend – you’d think I’d be sick of soup already! But no, all I want is more soup! This week I’m thinking I’d still like something which makes additional cheese consumption appropriate. However, I want the recipe to be light – not too heavy. Nothing with cream. Something packed…

    Crockpot Butternut Squash Soup (VG)

    One of my favorite fall vegetables is HANDS-DOWN the Butternut Squash. Just thinking about it makes me excited for Thanksgiving!! It is such a versatile vegetable – you can use it in warm or cold salads, as a delicious mash, instead of noodles, or even just chopped and roasted! Butternut squash is amazing with other super foods like quinoa, brussel sprouts, and cranberries – but its also fabulous all on its own! Roasted with a little olive oil, salt and pepper – so flavorful and rich – mmm mmm MMM! I love it! Okay okay – you get it, I know. So why am I writing all this jibber jabber?…
