Soups

01 Dec Curried Roasted Kabocha Squash, Carrot, and Sweet Potato Soup with Purple Sweet Potato Labne Squiggle

I am super crazy with my soup preferences, bordering on soup-nazi level specificity. Like, I really really am not into smoothies masking as soups (please never serve me chilled strawberry soup, like ever) but I frickin' love a spicy gazpacho, and while I have to will myself to have a whole both of a broth-y soup when I'm sick, I can drink a cup of local farmer's market Dave's Korean vegetable broth from a giant mug on a cold day with a ridiculous smile but when I have Ramen + Pho + other clear soups I just end up just eating the fun stuff and leaving the broth behind. I love posoles and chilis and stews (especially because of all the fun stuff you get to pile on top), but above all, I just LOVE creamy blended soups (tomato bisque, vichyssoise, any curry with coconut milk, tortilla soup, on and on...

30 Nov Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

Until the 5th grade, my mom's Hambone Stew was my favorite soup on earth.Growing up, I was an incredibly picky eater, and second in the line of evil food items on my list (spinach) was the dreaded pea.And my mom, a damn smart woman, was determined to get me to eat my veggies. So, that hambone stew? It was actually just split pea soup, but since she knew I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole if I heard the word "pea", she craftily renamed it and I licked the bowl every time. Now, as I mentioned, it was my favorite...

21 Sep Smoky Chilled Tomato Soup

It's ridiculously mind-numbingly hot here in Los Angeles and so I give you a ridiculously mind-numbingly easy recipe that requires no heat and no more than 5 minutes of your time! Tomato season is coming to a close (*sob*) and I'm using them in everything I can while they're still here and still incredible. This soup is a kind-of-gazpacho/tortilla soup/salmorejo type deal, and it's success hinges on the quality of your tomatoes so be sure to get the most fragrant and juicy ones you can find (the cheaper "softies" at the farmers market are perfect for this since their imperfections and almost-over-ripeness will be obliterated by the blender anyway). Use a high-quality Spanish smoked paprika as well for optimal flavor explosion, the bargain bin spice will get lost in translation.  [yumprint-recipe id='86']...

13 Mar Vegan Posole Stew

Inspired by a traditional meaty Mexican Pozole stew, this healthier vegan version develops a ton of flavor in a quick cook time. The hominy has an addicting flavor and texture, the canned beans cut the cooking and prep time, the Soyrizo brings the spice that the chilies and meat usually provide in the traditional version, and the toppings create an awesome crunch. One of my favorite comfort foods, this stew is an easy and hearty one pot meal to warm your heart and soul.[yumprint-recipe id='74']...
