Gazpacho, Spain’s famous chilled tomato based soup, is basically summer in a bowl or salad in a blender. It sounds fancy to say it but it’s uber-easy to make! There’s the classic red version of Gazpacho, tomato based, and the classic White Gazpacho, usually made with cucumber, almonds and grapes but I’ve changed it and kicked it up a notch and I’m using an ingredient that will surprise you!
What’s more comforting than a rich bowl of creamy, warm tomato soup? Maybe with a little sass added to it, a few ingredients to kick it up a bit. A dash of basil, a glug of heavy cream, a pinch of crushed red pepper, a smidge of sundried tomatoes. Blend it all together, put grilled cheese croutons on top and you’ve got dinner worthy, guest worthy soup. And it’s soup-er easy to put together. In fact, I bet you already have most of the ingredients in your pantry right now!
Chicken soup is all about love! What’s the one thing you want to eat when you’re feeling under the weather? Chicken soup! Because it’s loaded with vegetables, it really does help you to get better. It’s got lots of nutrition and a hot mug will warm you down to your toes on a cold winter’s night.
Chicken soup, homemade and savory, is super easy to make. Ideally, you’ll start with the leftover chicken frame and meat from your homemade roast chicken but in a pinch, a rotisserie chicken will work fine. This is an easy recipe to add to your collection and one you’ll make again and again, I promise!
My favorite soups are the ones I can put together quickly yet are deeply flavorful. Simple yet able to be the centerpiece of a simple meal. Hearty soups, like Roast Broccoli Cheese soup with Roast Garlic, are perfect as the days grow short and the nights cold. I’ve made broccoli cheese soup for years but only recently have I discovered how much richer the flavor is when you roast the broccoli and a few cloves of garlic along with it.
My favorite and most beautiful way of eating beets is in this luscious, fuschia, dill infused lemony beet borscht. Most people think of borscht as a hot winter soup rich with beef and cabbage and indeed, it is. This is the light, cold and summery version. The best part of this soup is no cooking other than the beets. Enjoy!
