Carrot Soup with Ginger and Lemon

Share

My husband’s aunt recently had some dental work done and she’s a huge fan of my soup.  Her favorite is this Lemon Parsley-and-Egg Soup, so I made her a batch of that, and I also made her a batch of this carrot soup. I love the soup. It’s quite healthy, and a great way to […]

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup with Smoky Caprese Panini

Share

It’s a cold and rainy night in NYC.  A good night to stay inside.  It’s the kind of night where I’d get a roaring fire going if we had a fireplace.  I’ve mentioned before that one of my sons won’t eat meat because he can’t stand the thought of hurting an animal, so we’ve been […]

Marcus Samuelsson's Spiced Coconut Lentil Soup

Share

I was  doing some Christmas shopping with my husband the other day and we stopped for lunch at a cafe that opened a couple of months ago in Lincoln Center.   The cafe is called American Table by Marcus Samuelsson.  It’s cafeteria style in that you place your order at a counter, then you find a […]

Creamy Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

Share

The weather turned chilly recently, and when it’s cold outside there’s nothing better than a big pot of hot soup. In my book, this soup is classic comfort food. Both creamy and cheesy, and packing a lot of flavor. I love to make soups. They’re surprisingly easy to make and canned soups can’t hold a […]

Sausage, White Bean, and Swiss Chard Soup

Share

One of the vegetables being featured at my CSA this week is swiss chard. I’ve never cooked with it before. Since I’m responsible for recipes/photos for the weekly newsletter, I pored over swiss chard recipes and decided to try this one. I’m so glad I did because this is now one of my top 5 […]

This Sunday’s NY Times had an article on cold soups written by Mark Bittman.    Twelve bowls of beautiful soup were pictured in an online interactive feature .  I had some time before my son’s baseball game on Sunday afternoon, so I made a batch. It’s very easy to make and incredibly tasty.

I used my […]

Tomato Peanut Soup

Share

 

When I worked downtown, I would often grab lunch at Hale and Hearty Soup, a place that offered about 10 different kinds of soup each day. My favorite was the Senegalese Peanut soup. It was a vegetable soup with a kick of cayenne that tasted strongly of peanuts. It also had some chicken in it. […]

Curried Lentil Stew with Potatoes

Share

 

Despite what the food looks like (I actually think it looks a little like dog food – is that terrible to say?) I found it to be incredibly delicious and I was sad when I finished the last bowl.   I could have eaten this for lunch for a week without getting sick of it.   I […]

Classic Tomato Soup

Share

My husband’s aunt recently had some dental work done, so I was fishing through my saved recipes for a nice soup to make for her. I have made tomato soup before, but I liked that fact that this one did not contain any cream, yet it looked incredibly creamy (and appealing) in the […]

Creamy Curried Celery Root Soup

Share

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I love the farmers market that comes to our neighborhood on Thursdays and Saturdays. I especially love the fall vegetables that start to appear at this time of year – the beautifully colored and oddly shaped squash, the beets, the husk cherries and the other […]
