Vegan “Chicken” Noodle Soup

Soup season is getting off to a good start this year with a brand new recipe in our house. Keri and I have recently discovered the wonders of Jackfruit. This tropical fruit has the texture of chicken/pork when pan-fried or roasted and then shredded. It has a slightly...

What to do with all that chard?

Chard, a relative of the beet plant, is ridiculously easy to grow here so we grow a lot of it. Kale is just as easy to grow but kale is cheap to buy by the pound at the store. Chard, on the other hand, is expensive. I have no idea why. I actually prefer chard over...

Roasted Poblano Corn Chowder

The Snowmageddon Snowpocalypse snow storm that passed through has kept us mostly indoors for the past couple days. We were totally prepared with a fully-stocked fridge, freezer, and pantry. Cold weather like this calls for soup, and I have been meaning to try this...

Spicy Dal Soup

We're entering the last week of winter with a blast of cold up here in New England and I'm just about out of my stock soup ingredients. Luckily, I had just enough of the three main ingredients for Mirepoix plus a bit of fresh ginger and garlic, some hot peppers...

Tomato Mirepoix Soup

I've been experimenting with some new (to me) cooking techniques lately and discovered "Aromatics." Aromatics are a mix of vegetables and herbs sautéed in a bit of oil or fat and are used as the base for many dishes. They are perfect for making rich, flavorful soups....
