Chinese Vegetable Soup

Chinese Vegetable Soup by John Spottiswood

I love to throw this recipe together when I am in the mood for a healthy and spicy meal. Just about every time I go to an Asian grocery store I end up picking up the ingredients for this tasty soup. This is not from any book...just pieced together from the great bowls of soup I've had in hole-in-the-wall chinese restaurants in the…

Minestrone Romagna Style

Minestrone Romagna Style by John Spottiswood

This is the way minestrone is made in Romagna. It's not a lot of prep time, but you simmer the soup for a long time until all of the vegetable flavors mellow into one mild but delicious soup. The subtle flavors of this soup are even more delicious the next day, so it is a good dish to prepare in advance of guests arriving for a…

Simple Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

Simple Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup by Robyn Savoie

Simply put...yummm. This is the best cream of broccoli soup I have ever tasted. Friends and Family love it when I make this. They request this all the time on those cold winter days. I made a few changes to a recipe I found based on things I read. Curry powder is the key, it adds a "pop" to the broccoli and cauliflower because…

We made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! This has everything I love about Indian food.

Creamy Lentil and Broccoli Soup

Creamy Lentil and Broccoli Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a creamy, flavorful, and incredibly healthy soup. The next time you're in the mood for split pea soup (also very healthy), try this instead. It has a wonderful body and a great hearty flavor. If you haven't had sumac before as a seasoning, this is a great dish to try it with. Sumac is commonly used in the middle east to…

Greek Minestrone Soup

Greek Minestrone Soup by Robyn Savoie

Try this robust soup for a quick lunch or dinner. Serve with fruit or side salad and you're good to go. I use Arborio rice in this soup. It's an Italian-grown grain that is shorter and plumper that any other short, grain rice. Traditionally used to make creamy risotto, it adds a similar texture to this bean and vegetable soup.

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (with Pressure Cooker Option)

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (with Pressure Cooker Option) by Salad Foodie

Inspired by a recipe from New Paradigm Cooking (Sandbach, Terranova and Ware), I chose to forego the cookbook’s recommended 30 minutes simmering time in a stockpot, for a pressure cooker rendition which cut the cooking time to well under 10 minutes…
