Tomato Vegetable Soup with Wheat Berries

IMG_7272

Sunday was pretty much the best non-racing race day ever.  There was a practice race on the Dipsea trail up in Marin county, and Mike talked my dad into running it with him.  The trail is only 6.8 miles long, but it climbs over 1600 feet total, and involves a whole bunch […]

Simple Curry Red Lentil Soup

I’ve made a bunch of red lentil soups before, but this is the simplest, and we all really love it (espeically Ellie).  It’s almost as comforting as a bowl of mac and cheese (or maybe I’ve been eating hippie food for too long…) and easy to throw together. Life lately […]

Red Lentil and Carrot Soup

Mike just turned 31, and the celebration lasted days.  Pizza one day, cake another, and on day 3, the Vitamix arrived. Ellie was almost as excited about it as he was. If I’d had this when I made this soup, I definitely would have pureed it, but since I […]

Laksa

I try to eat at least a couple servings of vegetables every day, and usually I have no problem doing that.  Saturday, however, I realized as I got into bed that the mushrooms in this soup were the only vegetable I had all day.  Oops. I guess that’s what […]

Tofu Noodle Soup with Dumplings

Ellie got her first cold last week, and of course we ended up getting it too. I hate seeing her sick, but she’s a trooper. I felt pretty crappy on Monday and Tuesday. My throat was killing me and I had basically zero energy. Sometimes I’ll try and run […]

Tortellini and Kale Soup

There are a million things to love about San Francisco, but this is one of my favorites: We’re members, and this weekend, we gave Ellie her first science museum experience. Our first stop was the living roof, which is covered with native plants and absorbs 98% of the water […]

South Indian Rice and Tofu Soup

This was originally a Jamie Oliver recipe for seafood and rice soup, using lots of spices and some coconut milk (but also seafood and white rice). Since I don’t eat seafood I added tofu, and I wanted brown rice instead of white. I also wanted to up the vegetable […]

Red Lentil Soup with Caramelized Onions

I have been all about red lentils lately. They make the best soup, they’re such a pretty orangey-red color (which unfortunately changes to yellow when they’re cooked), and they are hopefully pretty healthy (I’ll have to check on that). I normally cook them with Indian spices (mustard seeds, a […]

Potato and Corn Chowder

I know I’m a broken record, but I am completely obsessed with summer produce. Watermelon, berries, peaches, plums, grapes, corn, tomatoes… It may not ever feel like summer here, but at least we get all the amazing produce. We had a pretty awesome weekend…Friday night we went to Ikea […]

Almost-raw vegan creamy broccoli soup

I may have slightly over-indulged in home-made coleslaw and milk chocolate ice cream this weekend. I definitely do not subscribe to the “oh crap I ate so horribly I better go to the gym and work it all off” mentality (and Megan wrote a great post that explains exactly […]
