Soup

Edamame Soup

Edamame Soup

This soup is the perfect use for the leftover créme fraîche from the mussels in cider. I’m a big fan of edamame, but it is typically one of those things I only eat if it comes gratis with the sushi we’ve ordered (as much as I enjoy edamame, I don’t think I could ever convince Dustin…

Sausage and Pepper Tortellini Soup

Sausage and Pepper Tortellini Soup

I bought a family-sized package of cheese tortellini when we made this spinach and artichoke tortellini soup and only used half off it. While the spinach and artichoke version was light and refreshing, this meaty, tomato and pepper version was much heartier and fall/winter appropriate. Originally I envisioned large chunks of sausage or chorizo, but…

Spinach and Artichoke Tortellini Soup

Spinach and Artichoke Tortellini Soup

We’ve been eating crazy amounts of spinach lately. For the last few weeks, most mornings for breakfast, we’ve been drinking green smoothies for breakfast. Dustin was skeptical about the potential deliciousness of putting spinach in a smoothie, but has since perfected a version with bananas, honey, raspberries, mangoes, fresh orange juice, and coconut milk (another…

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Let’s face it. It will never be really be soup weather where I live, so I have to get my fill of warm, comforting soups when I’m wearing T-shirts and pretending it’s cold. I’ve previously made a more gourmet version of buffalo chicken soup with blue cheese biscuits and all, but I wanted a more everyday…

Creamy Amaretto Pumpkin Soup with Fried Sage

Creamy Amaretto Pumpkin Soup with Fried Sage

This is a pumpkin soup that even Dustin can get behind. When I told him pumpkin soup was on the menu, he was less than pleased. But once he tasted the mildly pumpkin soup, I think he quite enjoyed his meal. The amaretto in the soup is really quite subtle, but adds a little extra…

White Bean + Parmesan Stew

White Bean + Parmesan Stew

From now on I’m putting parmesan rinds in everything. We made this delicious white bean stew with three different kinds of greens (yes, three!), adapted from Bon Apetit, and there was not a drop of actual cheese in the stew, but there was the most wonderful cheesy flavor in the broth. It’s like 80 degrees…

Creamy Tomato Gorgonzola Soup (with Greek Yogurt)

Creamy Tomato Gorgonzola Soup (with Greek Yogurt)

My coworkers and I went out for lunch at a random restaurant we stumbled upon in downtown El Segundo. Second City Bistro offered a grilled cheese and tomato soup lunch special that I ordered. But they had a wonderful twist on their tomato soup— gorgonzola. We recreated the grilled cheese and gorgonzola tomato soup for dinner…

Three Chile Chowder

Three Chile Chowder

We absolutely loved this spicy and creamy soup with plenty of heat thanks to poblanos, jalapeños, and hatch chiles. To kill that intense spiciness, you have soft chunks of potatoes, half and half, and beautiful acid from the lime. Even though this was a much loved warming meal during our (cool) winter, we had a…

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I’d been craving a carb loaded baked potato recently, and given the (slightly) cooler days of fall, baked potato soup (with all of the fixins) seemed in order. We went to the farmer’s market and got all of the ingredients; however the actual making of the soup kept getting postponed in favor of eating out…

Buffalo Chicken Soup & Blue Cheese Biscuits

Buffalo Chicken Soup & Blue Cheese Biscuits

Before Dustin left for one of his trips back to San Antonio, he specifically told me not to eat all of his Frank’s. He literally eats Frank’s hot sauce all of the time now. Last week at the grocery store, he bought tortilla chips with no salsa, but instead said he would eat them with…
