Miso Soup

I LOVE miso soup! I found a great, easy recipe and was able to recreate one of my favorite restuarant dishes at home. It takes very little time to prepare and if you are considering throwing a sushi party any time soon, this would be a great way to kick things off.

Loaded Turnip Potato Leek Soup

We received all three of the title ingredients in one of our last CSA pick-ups of the year and I figured out a way to use them all in one dish! I think that should get me some bonus points, don’t you? I made a creamy, comfort food style soup, jazzing it up with some cheese and bacon to really maximize the flavors. Making this soup involved very few steps.

Roasted Red Pepper Bisque

Sorry for the lack of posts recently.  Bizzy!  This was an end of winter soup that was pretty easy, filling, and tasty.  It is a bit time consuming but not with full attention steps throughout.  Red pepper has such a great taste and with a little extra spice added it was wonderful!

Cheeseburger Soup

I once saw a Diners, Drive Ins and Dives episode that featured a place that made cheeseburger soup and I wanted to make it really badly. Something about it sounded so good to me, but time wore on and I kind of forgot about it. Recently, I saw that one the blogs I frequent featured their own recipe for cheeseburger soup and since the recipe was right there and all I decided to go for it… and I am so happy I did! I am still thinking about it and I made it quite a while ago 🙂

Italian Wedding Soup

Amazing!  I have always loved Italian Wedding Soup but have never tried to make it.  We were turned on to this recipe by a visit to Eileen’s dad recently.  We like Lidia, and it is a recipe of hers which featured a step that I had not seen before and of course it worked out perfectly and was genius.

Broccoli Soup with Leeks and Thyme

This was a quick and easy soup to prepare that packed some great flavor with very few ingredients. 6 to be exact. It was also the first time I have ever cooked with leeks. I’ve been meaning to for a while and now that I have I don’t know how or why I waited so long! Leeks are like jumbo green onions, but you don’t use the dark green parts. They have an onion flavor that is nice and mild. They are really pretty too.

Cauliflower Bacon Soup

We are big fans of roasted cauliflower so when I saw this recipe for ‘bacon-flower soup‘ on Aarti’s blog I was instantly intrigued. Aarti won the show- “Next Food Network Star” and she is a food blogger in addition to being a TV chef nowadays. Pretty cool. This was the first recipe of her’s I’ve tried. Overall it went well despite having to google what a “rasher of bacon” was. Other than that though it was very easy to follow and the soup was good. Very interesting flavors all around.
