Non-Dairy Ways to Make Soup Creamy

I am down with slurping soup all year long. It’s not uncommon for me to curl up with a bowl of split pea soup, baby bok choy stoup or congee on a hot July evening. Kooky, I know. I appreciate that for most of you, soup season doesn’t kick off until the weather cools and […]

Baby Bok Choy Stoup with Coconut and Miso

‘Stoup’ is a delightful word, isn’t it? A hybrid of stew and soup, stoup is full of rustic whimsy and I can’t believe I’ve never used this descriptor before, because it represents 70% of the food I eat.

Split Pea Soup

Want to know why I’ve been posting so many soup recipes lately? It’s still cold here, and rainy, and that means I want the warm comfort that a hot bowl of soup brings. I typically eat a bowl of soup (or two) as a full meal, but I get that not everyone feels soup constitutes […]

Cream of Spinach Soup

I probably should have called this ‘fridge and freezer scraps’ soup, as this recipe came about after I rummaged through the fridge, selected what was old or about to go off and turned it into a meal. This soup was so simple, and yet I can’t tell you how delicious it was. The texture was […]

Leek, Potato and Parsnip Soup

Even though I make soup all year round, there is something about fall and winter that compels me to consume it in earnest. Thick, creamy soups are my favourite at this time of year and when I saw a pile of leeks at the farmers market, I immediately craved leek and potato soup. Potatoes get […]
