Butternut Squash Soup

Now, I’m doing this to show y’all how much I love you. I know it’s fall. I know butternut squash is a thing. I know some people like it. How? Why? I don’t know. There are plenty of psychopaths out there. I am not one of those people. I HATE butternut squash. I think it…

Kimchi Noodle Soup

First off, to all my Korean readers, I am so sorry. This is about as far from authentic as you can get. But it tastes good, if that’s any consolation! I would be pretty mad if someone made, say, chicken tandoori soup, so I get it. There are three parts to this- the creamy base,…

Tomato Soup

You can’t have soup week without tomato soup! And you can’t have a president without a brain! Oh yeah! You definitely can! Moron! Him, not me. I like to think I operate on a higher plane. Where was I going with this? I had a point. I know I had a point. I was like…

Vegetable Broth

The base. The OG. The backbone. The broth. Making chicken broth is easy enough- boil some bird bones. But veggie broth? Veggie broth is as easy or complicated as you make it, and it is so, so, so much better than the stuff you get in the store. I like to make this in bulk,…

Soup Week

It’s fall! I don’t care that it’s still 80 degrees outside, it’s fall, and that means it’s time for soup. I love soup- as a side dish, a main dish, a dessert dish (isn’t that what chocolate fondue is?) I’m going to be posting seven of my favorite recipes- leave me a comment and tell…

Red Lentil Soup-Egypt

There’s been a little cough/cold going around my house, so soup seemed like a good idea. This cured everyone! It was spicy, flavorful, creamy, silky- anything with that set of adjectives is going to be good! There was only one downside- I only had enough red lentils for two servings. As soon as I get…

Locro- Ecuador

I’m in a healthy mood recently. But I make what I like to call sustainable health food- the kind that tastes so good, you can eat it for the rest of your life. You eco nerds got excited, didn’t you? Well, I try to be sustainable in the eco sense, too. You little nerds keep…

Rodbeetsuppe- Denmark

Red beet soup! I had very low expectations for this, honestly. I’ve never been a beet lover, and I expected it to turn out somewhat like borscht. I’ve had the misfortune to eat some very bad borscht at the Russian tea room (Order the chicken Kiev instead!), and that’s put me off it. This soup…

White Fungus and Chicken Soup

Okay, that title is a little bit misleading. For one, I just used plain old white mushrooms from the grocery store. And there isn’t much chicken in here. But I can explain! It’s a funny story: I wasn’t sure what to make for China, there’s so many different regions and cuisines, I was sort of…

Pozole Soup

I had some pozole/hominy leftover from when I made Cachupa, and when there is pozole in my house, you better believe it’ll be turned into soup. A couple of years ago, I threw a bunch of spices and vegetables into a Dutch Oven with some pozole, cooked the heck out of it, and I’ve been…
