Avocado Vichyssoise

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

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 […]

Lemony Parsley-and-Egg Soup

Share

Found this recipe in the Sunday NY Times magazine section recently. It was in an article by Mark Bittman all about using fresh herbs from the garden in recipes, and letting the herbs take center stage. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough parsley in my garden to make this soup, […]

Spicy Chicken Barley Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Spinach

Share

This soup is incredibly healthy and quite delicious.    I ate it for a couple of days and I loved every bowl I ate.  The combination of spices is wonderful.   I took this picture the day after I made it.   I wish I had gotten a picture when it was first cooked – the spinach […]

Carrot-Coconut Milk Soup

Share

I thought this soup was delicious! It’s very rich, and I served one batch as an appetizer for four people. We each got a small serving, but it was a perfect size for an appetizer.   I could have easily eaten more, but I served a main course as well.

Black Bean Soup with Sherry

A friend stopped by for lunch last Friday. I had some leftover frittata, but I was afraid that there wasn’t going to be enough, so I whipped up this soup. The recipe popped into my inbox shortly before my friend called, and I had nearly all of the ingredients on hand, so I […]
