In this comforting, creamy soup sans cream, warm hints of curry and ginger round out the natural sweetness of the carrots.

Lentil Soup in Acorn Squash Bowls

Thursday, November 3, 2011


Squash and pumpkins make eye-catching soup tureens, adding a rustic touch to the tabletop that can’t be recreated with any store-bought ceramic bowls. You can use the squash and soup of your choice. I found that lentil soup and acorn squash pair nicely together for a hearty, warming and healthy meal that is perfect for chilly days.

Chicken Pozole Blanco (Mexican Soup)

Pozole (also commonly spelled posole) is a traditional Mexican soup made with hominy and meat, such as chicken or pork. This version which comes from my world-traveling friend uses chicken breasts and comes together quickly, but the longer you let it simmer the more the flavors will develop. But in my opinion, it is all of the garnishes that "make" the soup, adding color, texture and a myriad of flavors to each spoonful.

Turkey Brown Rice Soup

Monday, March 21, 2011


I had some leftover turkey meat to use up so I decided to make a soup. Corn and cilantro were welcome additions. Also, by using brown rice, I incorporated whole grains into the soup so that you have lean protein, whole grains and vegetables with each bite.

This hearty two-bean chowder is a healthy comfort food, perfect for the cold winter weather we've been having. Mashing a portion of the beans is a healthy way to make the soup thick and creamy like a chowder.

Pumpkin Soup

Tuesday, October 12, 2010


My inspiration for this soup came from a curried butternut squash soup that was one of my favorites at a restaurant when I was younger. I used a basic recipe from The All New All Purpose Joy of Cooking as my guide, but I made several slight variations and ultimately added a bit of curry powder. For a festive autumn meal, serve the soup in hollowed out pumpkins.

French Onion Soup

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


This hearty soup can be a satisfying main course or a filling side dish. It is simple to make, just allow up to an hour to properly caramelize the onions. {Although I have to admit that I recently made it when I was short on time and I cooked the onions at a higher temp for only about 30 minutes and the soup still turned out great.}

BBQ Chicken Chili

This chili is easy to make and can be made on the stovetop or in a slow-cooker. I used leftover BBQ chicken but it would also be good with ground chicken, turkey or beef.
