Creamy Asparagus Soup

This lightly creamy asparagus soup is bright with lemon and loaded with spring herbs & veggies. It's the perfect fresh meal for a cool spring night.

It’s raining, it’s spring, and it’s asparagus season… so naturally, I made asparagus soup! I think this is the perfect spring soup because it’s lightly creamy and not at all heavy. The asparagus flavor is subtle and it has a nice sweetness from the peas and a fresh, herbal flavor from the basil. I like to serve this soup warm, but not piping hot so that the bright flavors don’t get muddled. Although, fun fact: my sister came over the other day and ate it cold out of the fridge like gazpacho, which I don’t totally recommend, but it works…

Best Lentil Soup

Meet my favorite lentil soup recipe! This vegan lentil soup is delicious, made with tomato, creamy coconut milk, ginger, and a bit of curry.

This post is for my mom. I made the first version of this lentil soup a few months ago when my family came over for dinner, and every time I’ve seen her since, she’s asked, “where is that soup recipe?” That says a lot about this soup because my mom has very strict criteria for recipes that make it into her rotation. They have to be quick to make with minimal prep, they have to be easy enough to eventually memorize (because cooking goes faster that way), and they have to be either batch-able or freezer-friendly so she can eat…

Golden Turmeric Noodle Miso Soup

This vegetable noodle miso soup will brighten up a winter's day! Healthy & healing, it's made with lemon, ginger, and turmeric.

The thing that no one talks about in food blogging is that you develop some really weird eating patterns. The question of the day isn’t “what am I having for breakfast or lunch,” it’s “what are we working on and can it be considered a meal?” In December, testing cookie recipes every day was a bit of a sugar rush. After that, balance was restored while testing/creating this healthy nourishing veggie noodle miso soup recipe. I think I ate this soup four times in a row last week – so what you’re looking at is my unintentional soup cleanse. Now,…

Roasted Red Pepper Soup

I love making this colorful roasted red pepper soup on cold winter days. With simple steps and nourishing flavor, it's a weeknight go-to.

This roasted red pepper soup recipe is light and nourishing, yet creamy and delicious – just the thing if you ate too many cookies this weekend. Plus, I think the red pepper soup and green herbs look so festive! If you haven’t gotten around to decorating a tree this year (or if you’re tired of decorating cookies), you can decorate your soup! 🙂 Roasted Red Pepper Soup Recipe Ingredients Because red bell peppers aren’t in season, I use jarred roasted red peppers, which are a super convenient pantry ingredient. If you’re making this soup in the summer or fall, though,…
