Mulligatawny

Well, here we are. The holy grail… every good thing in food combined in one bowl… Mulligatawny soup. Beam me back to the 1800’s to hug whoever thought of putting spicy curry in a creamy soup with chicken and rice. As if rich, creamy chicken soup isn’t comforting enough, add some warm spices and fragrant basmati rice in there, please. I am so into this. Team Mulligatawny, all day.

Sweet Potato Corn Chowder

Chowder day! I’m a big chowder fan, mostly because of the cream and… well, yeah – it’s the heavy cream. And the texture. Sometimes a thin, brothy soup is just not what I’m after – gimme thickness. Gimme richness. Gimme chowder! In case creaminess is somehow not enough of a selling point for you, let me also mention that in this Sweet Potato Corn Chowder recipe, I am sharing my Top 2 Tried and True Tricks for Making Soup Delicious. They are easy, workable for almost any soup recipe, and they deliver on flavor and texture every single time.

Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup

Yeeeeesssss, creamy, dreamy, cheesy soup with green things for our health and beer for our wanna-have-a-good-time taste buds! I made this soup for dinner last week, right before my mom and I left for the Wine & Chocolate Festival in Greensboro, NC. More on that in a bit. First, let me tell you about this thing that had me holding the bowl up to my face, licking up all the last drops.

Sausage, Kale, and White Bean Soup

Well, heeeyyyy 2019! I’m so glad we were able to celebrate the holidays with friends and family over the past few weeks. But, I’m also very happy to welcome the new year and get back into normal habits. Cookies with every meal? Not normal. Meatballs as snacks between meals? Delicious but not ok. It’s time to Get. It. Together. Time to make some Sausage, Kale, and White Bean Soup. This recipe is, in my opinion, like, 90% healthy. If you want to be squeaky clean and leave out the sausage and cream, it’s fine -the soup is still amazing. For me, I still require a little fat and richness. Not to mention, Joey’s “there’s no meat in this” sensor would go off.

Chipotle Sweet Potato Peanut Soup

Here we are, a couple days before Christmas, almost time to slow down, crush some pillows, and generally chill out. This past week has been packed with doing, buying, wrapping, etc. and we need to sneak some coziness in today before we can fully relax tomorrow. Chipotle Sweet Potato Peanut Soup is just right- smoky, rich, and creamy but also super healthy. Sweet potatoes are true vitamin bombs and their sweet, earthy flavor combines perfectly with peanuts and chipotle.
