Italian Wedding Soup

Did you know that despite how the name suggests, Italian wedding soup is not served at Italian weddings. The name comes from the Italian words “minestra maritata” which means “married soup”. It refers to the marriage of flavours from the meat and greens that go into it. I thought that was pretty interesting. Now that…

Turmeric & Sweet Potato Soup

I’ve made a lot of soups in my life. And I feel like every time I post about soup, I tell you how much I love soup. Well I’m here today to keep that streak alive! Since it’s Monday, this soup is another recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. The name of it only…

(Not Terrible) Lentil Soup

Yes, it is Monday so this is another recipe from Thug Kitchen 101. The name of this really is “Not Terrible Lentil Soup”. I guess it’s pretty common to have bad lentil soup, I fortunately have never experienced that. But I can say that this soup was quite delicious. I liked that it was a…

Curried Cauliflower Soup

Hot soup might not be the first food you think of to eat on a summer day, but I love it. I just really like making and eating soups so I enjoy them all year long. This was a creamy cauliflower soup with a little sweetness from apple and kick of flavour from curry powder….

Sweet Potato & Lentil Curry

Vegetable Ramen

I think I’ve said this before but I love to make (and eat) soup. It’s so fun to cook because everything goes into the pot and you end up with this delicious meal. The soup I’ve made today is my take on Japanese ramen. It is traditionally made with a pork broth but I made…

Recipe #70: Tuscan White Bean, Kale & Farro Stew

Meal in a bowl, that’s what this was. It’s one of those soups/stews that is an entire meal because it has grains, protein and tons of veggies. It was nice comfort food and the recipe yields a huge pot of stew so it’s perfect for second helpings or leftovers. I’m so happy with how this…

Recipe #55: Black Bean Tortilla Soup with Sweet Potatoes

I’ve never had tortilla soup but it sounded pretty good just reading through the recipe. It’s a tomato based soup with beans and tons of veggies, as well as yummy toppings, including homemade crispy tortilla strips. I couldn’t wait to make and eat it. It did take a bit of time to chop all the…

Recipe #51: Moroccan Butternut, Chickpea & Couscous Stew

If you’re one of those people who make one of their new year’s resolutions to eat healthier/more veggies, I recommend this soup for you. It is a perfect colourful and nutritious dinner. There are so many things going on in this recipe – ingredient-wise – but the result is worth it. You end up with…
