The BEST Vegetarian Chili

The BEST Vegetarian Chili

I’ve eaten a lot of vegetarian chili in my life, and while most of it is good, this is the best one I’ve ever had. Unlike most that rely on meat substitutes or too many beans, this one is made of veggies, with a couple of secret ingredients. There are several steps to this that [...]

coconut lentil soup

Coconut Lentil Soup

An easy green lentil soup recipe gets creaminess from coconut milk. Perfect for a light, healthy meal. There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of soup. Potato, broccoli, or even a hearty chili are staples in my household. But one of my favorites is lentil soup, even though let’s face it, lentils don’t seem all [...]

Easy Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

The time for an easy vegetarian tortilla soup is now. The weather we’ve been having has not been different from any other year, but that doesn’t mean it’s not irritating. It makes it hard to plan meals when one day it’s 90 and humid and the next is 45 and rainy. Luckily, my pantry is [...]

The Best Creamy Tomato Soup with Crunchy Nut Topping

I debated what to call this soup. For many reasons. But finally settled on the best creamy tomato soup. Is it the best creamy tomato soup? Maybe, maybe not. But it was delicious and reminds me of a fun time in the past. A few years back, my husband, a friend, and I went to [...]

corn and poblano soup

Summer Corn and Poblano Soup

A simple corn and poblano soup to begin the countdown to the end of summer. I’m not going to miss the heat and humidity (and hopefully all the rain we’ve been having this summer!)

Broccoli Potato Soup

My favorite vegetable is broccoli. Roasted, steamed or soup. So it stands to reason that I love broccoli potato soup. It’s the perfect cold-weather food. Currently stuck inside due to both weather and other reasons, soup seems like the best meal to cozy up to on the couch while binge watching more tv than a [...]

Creamy Potato Leek Soup

Some days are just cold and windy, and you don’t want to do anything but curl up on the couch with comfort food. Especially when you look out the front window and see snow flurries. While there are lots of options for comfort food, my favorite when the weather is crisp and blustery is soup. [...]

Instant Pot Corn Chowder

It’s been hot and humid here, and I am not a fan. It’s not the time of year for high heat cooking, and probably not for soup. But it is time for sweet corn, and one of my favorite ways to eat corn is in a corn chowder. This is when my Instant Pot comes [...]

Lemon Lentil Quinoa Soup

I love soups that are delicious and super healthy, and easy lentil soup recipe fits perfectly. It’s full of hearty lentils, quinoa, and veggies, so it’s perfect for a cold Monday night after a long weekend of over indulging. It uses tons of garlic, and both lemon juice and zest give it a bright and [...]

Roasted Tomato Tortilla Soup

I’m a fan of soups, and my favorite is tortilla. This roasted tomato tortilla soup is a different version of the usual broth based version with black beans and corn, and is easy and delicious. It’s also a great way to use up tomatoes that aren’t quite the best — you know, anything from a [...]
