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…

Recipe #45: Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Soup

I’ve made cauliflower soup before but I’ve never roasted the cauliflower before adding it to the pot. Roasting makes it a little caramelized and sweet which gives the soup so much good flavour. I guess you could roast any vegetables before adding them to your soup and they would have the same effect. I may…

Recipe #30: Classic Tomato Soup

Winter weather has officially arrived so I have been making a couple soups each week. They are just so versatile with ingredients and flavour profiles, and they are very comforting to eat. You can’t get more classic than a creamy bowl of tomato soup though. And I think what will surprise most people about this…

Recipe #21: Hearty Lentil Minestrone

I know I’ve mentioned that with the cold weather coming, I’m excited to be having more soups and stews. They are just so great because they warm you up nicely and it almost makes you forget how cold it it outside. Although it’s not quite winter yet, it’s definitely getting chilly here. I try to…

Chicken & Sweet Potato Soup

Hope everyone had a good week and I’m so excited it’s the weekend. I posted recipe #6 of my cookbook challenge earlier today, which you should really check out because it was a tasty one (you can see that here). But I wanted to get another post up before I sign off for a few…

New Cookbook Challenge + Recipe #1: West African Peanut Soup

When I finished my first cookbook challenge for the Yum & Yummer book by Greta Podleski (all recipes here), I told myself that I probably wouldn’t cook through another book. It was just a lot of work to organize all the recipes and be on such a consistent schedule of cooking, drafting and posting. It…

Recipe #101: Lemon Chicken & Orzo Soup

Who doesn’t love a bowl of warm chicken soup? There’s nothing fancy about it but there’s something so comforting when eating it. This lemon chicken & orzo soup had the classic flavours but the addition of lemon made it something new. It definitely adds a little tang that you wouldn’t expect from typical chicken soup…
