Fava Bean & Saffron Soup

While fresh fava beans are great in the springtime, they can be hard to find and require a lot of labor in peeling each individual bean. Having neither the time, nor the inclination to do so, dried fava beans are a great alternative that can be enjoyed year round. While searching for ways to use

Tomato Garlic Soup

We spent several weeks in hotels this past summer as we awaited the completion of our new home. As with any project that involves construction or renovation, the project did not complete on time. When the 12 month lease ran out on our apartment, we were naively  optimistic that our house would be

Ginger Carrot Soup

Many of the recipes that I cook include ginger, garlic or some combination of the two. Until I had this soup, I was always more “Team Garlic” than “Team Ginger.” Continue Reading

Minestrone in the Morning

This simple minestrone soup was the breakfast of choice this morning. It actually won versus an option of freshly made Belgian waffles. In many parts of the world, breakfast is often leftovers from dinner the night before, or a substantial meal with many different flavors. Feel free to think

Adzuki Bean Chili

I am always inspired when I look at the bulk bin “wall of grains” at Whole Foods. So many healthy options. This weekend, I wanted to make some chili with a bean I haven’t used (or heard of) before. Adzuki beans fit the criteria. According to a Whole Foods FAQ, adzuki beans are

Roasted Rainbow Pepper Soup

We woke up this morning to the sound of a woodpecker right outside our window trying to have his Sunday brunch (at the cost of our house). He was there for a while so we  were able to sneak a peak carefully through the window. I was surprised at how tiny he was relative to his beak size. Despite

Spicy & Creamy Asparagus Soup (Vegan)

When I think about the first eight years of my life, growing up in the suburbs of Toronto, Canada, a few things come to mind: Snow (which we have had too much of this winter in Virginia) St. Patricks Day (I went to St Patricks School- so this was an important day.) Asparagus… My parents

Red Lentil and Lime Soup

I always gravitate towards making soup when the forecast calls for really cold weather (remember the vegan Creamy Potato Soup I made when we had snow here in early January?) Well, snow is on the way again tomorrow for my area. Here’s my answer: a red lentil and lime soup. This simple and

Creamy Potato Soup

Winter holidays started two weeks ago with unseasonably warm weather (more than 70°F in December in Virginia)- hence the summery Strawberry Cake post. Now at the end of winter break, the weather has gone completely the other direction. We woke up this morning to a blanket of snow and unseasonably

Vegetable Miso Soup

One of the things we love about Hawaii is its diverse culture. American, Asian and traditional Hawaiian influences blend together for a truly unique experience. A few years ago, on our visit there,  this diversity was very evident in the breakfasts at the hotels we stayed at. In addition to
