Curried Butternut Soup

I happened to stumble across this recipe at the perfect time. I had a partially-used can of coconut milk in the fridge, and a forlorn butternut squash that had been sitting on the counter for over a week waiting for inspiration to strike. That, on top of the cold [...]

Pho with beef or tofu

I ate pho at least once a day when we were in Vietnam, but when I gave up meat I knew it would be tough to make a vegetarian version that comes close to the rich, full-flavored broth that makes it so great. While this broth does have a [...]

Marrakesh Minestrone

What I really feel like eating right now is piles of these No-Bake Bars but I did a little too much of that on New Years Eve. Instead I thought it might be a smarter idea to find some more healthy recipes to throw your way (and make myself, [...]

Chickpea, Celery and Mushroom Soup

Although I tend to think New Years Resolutions are a little ridiculous, I pretty much always end up making a few. I’ve had a couple resolutions that I make every year, which I guess defeats the purpose, but that’s life. I’m currently working on one that I’ve made every [...]

Hearty Cabbage Soup

I was mentally writing this blog post as I pureed this soup. I considered writing about how this is perfect for those chilly winter nights when it’s hard to warm up after shoveling snow all day, or how an icy breeze cuts through all the layers you pile on [...]

Mushroom Chowder

I’m not a picky eater at all. Off the top of my head, the only thing I really don’t like is raw mushrooms, and you encounter those so infrequently I don’t really think it counts. I’m also starting to be much less inclined to eat meat, but that’s another [...]

My favorite vegetable soup

There’s something extraordinarily comforting about eating creamy soups when the weather gets cool. As a kid, I gravitated towards Campbell’s Cream of Asparagus with so many crushed Saltines in it that it basically solidified. These days I stay away from canned soups, but they’ve been replaced with something MUCH [...]

White Bean Soup with Ham

This soup all started with the biggest white beans I’ve ever seen in my life. After doing some internet research, I don’t think they’re as big as the ones they eat in Greece, but they’re about an inch long before they’re cooked and, since I’d never seen dried beans [...]

Corn and Roasted Red Pepper Soup

I think the whole idea of having a mantra is a little cheesy. Although during the last few miles of a marathon — when feel like I could keel over and die at any second — I have a few key phrases I repeat to myself to keep going, [...]

Agvolemono with Broccoli and Spinach

Try not to let the fact that this soup has two of the world’s most-hated vegetables in it deter you. Speaking of hating vegetables, that is high on my list of Things I Just Don’t Understand. Vegetables are incredibly healthy, cheap, and can be cooked in so many different [...]
