Carrot Tahini Soup

Carrot soup is a regular side dish in our family. After making it for so many years, I decided to change things up a little and add tahini. I now don’t make carrot soup without it, because it tastes so much more interesting than a plain carrot soup. A pinch of turmeric gives the soup a nice, bright color, and pistachios add another pop of color and texture while acting as a delicious topping. This recipe makes four servings, so you […]

Fennel Bean Soup

  Fennel is one of my favorite vegetables to cook with, because it is incredibly flavorful. It also adds wonderful flavor to soups. In this soup recipe, I combine chopped fennel with onion, tomatoes, broccoli, kale and white beans. By blending half of the soup and adding it back in, you create a nice, creamy texture. Chop off the fronds and add on top of the soup for an elegant presentation! Fennel Bean Soup Recipe Ingredients 2 tbsp olive oil […]

Creamy Corn Chowder

Crumbled bacon and this hearty corn chowder is a match made in heaven. Sweet corn is blended together with potatoes and heavy cream to create a creamy chowder. Blend the entire batch of soup if you like it extra creamy, or leave some unblended if you want a little more texture to your chowder. Either way, you will love how creamy and filling this soup is and how easy it is to make. Serve this corn chowder as a side […]

Thanks to this simple recipe, the chickpea is given center stage in a light soup that’ll warm you on the coldest winter day.

Peanut Stew with Sweet Potatoes, Chicken, and Kale

If you love peanut butter like I do, you probably spend all your time trying to figure out how to work it into more recipes. For whatever reason, that’s not something that’s done very often, at least not here in the ol’ U. S. of A. But, as it turns out, in West Africa they use peanut butter to create a delicious and nutritious soup, loaded with lots of vegetables and sweet potatoes for a healthy, savory, creamy, peanut buttery […]

Celery Root Soup

Celery root can be a frightening ingredient to cook with, but I recently discovered how delicious it tastes in soup. It has a unique flavor that takes over, providing wonderfully delicate taste and texture. Once you get past the sight of the thing, cooking it is actually easy—and you can even eat it raw, sliced up thinly or grated in a salad. This celery root soup is made with leek, corn, green onion, and tiny egg noodles that are made by […]

Flädlesuppe

Flädlesuppe in German is translated to pancake soup in English, because the main ingredients in this traditional soup are thin, shredded pancakes! I love this soup because it serves as a quick, easy-to-make lunch with little investment and lots of gain. You can use vegetable or beef broth, depending on your preference. Celery, leek, green onion, parsley and carrots give it a little texture and flavor, but the shredded pancakes are the absolute star in this dish. Here is a tip for shredding […]

There is no heavy cream added to this soup, making it a healthy alternative to most of the creamy mushroom soups out there.
