Creamy Celery Root Cauliflower Soup

This cozy, creamy celery root cauliflower soup is winter comfort food at its best! I like to make a big batch and freeze leftovers for busy weeknights.

Soup season continues! While I’ve made many creamy cauliflower soups before, this time, I have a special guest ingredient that I’ve yet to use here on the blog: celery root! I had never cooked with celery root prior to this fall, probably because I never saw it at the farmers markets in Austin. That’s been part of the fun of moving somewhere new – new city, new vegetables. Celery root has a wonderful, savory celery-like flavor and a creamy consistency when blended. For this soup, I combined it with roasted cauliflower, sautéed mushrooms, leeks, thyme, Dijon, and a pop of…

Creamy Wild Rice Soup

Craving something comforting but healthy? This lightly creamy wild rice soup with kale, mushrooms, carrots, and celery is just the thing for you.

This wild rice soup recipe is a sort of non-traditional spin on a classic autumnal wild rice soup. For the record, that’s the first time that I’ve ever used the word “autumnal,” but it’s also the first time that I’ve ever posted a recipe with wild rice(?!) so there are firsts for everything today! Classic creamy chicken and wild rice soup is filled with ingredients that I don’t usually use – chicken, of course, chicken broth, and even heavy cream. At its core, though, traditional wild rice soup contains a base of delicious fall vegetables and the yummy, hearty rice,…

Oyster Mushroom Soup

This oyster mushroom soup is a healthy, healing recipe for cool evenings. It's brimming with flavor from lemongrass, miso & ginger!

One night a week, Jack goes to comedy class, which means it’s the night that I have all to myself. In lieu of doing anything productive, I usually eat toast for dinner in front of the computer and let myself go down a rabbit hole of Youtube videos. I watch what people eat in a day, I watch people who live in vans and make vegan food (#vanlife), I watch people who live in vans and make vegan food while raising young children, and I read the scroll of crazy judgy comments that come as a result of that lifestyle…

Vegan Corn Chowder with Yellow Split Peas

The perfect soup to welcome fall! This cozy, creamy vegan corn chowder is thickened with split peas, which provide great plant-based protein.

If I had to choose 2 favorite foods, they would be, without question, peaches and corn. While we’ve made our peace with peaches for this season, there’s still some wonderful corn at our farmers markets, which inspired me to make this corn chowder! It’s such a wonderful recipe to transition from summer to fall. I’m a big fan of making healthy soups that are thick and creamy without using actual cream, like this creamy broccoli soup or this creamy tomato soup.  I love that this chowder uses yellow split peas – they thicken the soup nicely while adding some great…

Carrot Coconut Gazpacho with Lemongrass

This heavenly carrot gazpacho requires just 10 ingredients and blends together in a flash. Refreshing, creamy & bright, it's wonderful warm or cold.

It’s soup season! Well, it’s sort of soup season… one day there’s a chill in the air, the next day it’s warm and sunny. So here’s a soup that I crave no matter what’s happening outside. It’s meant to be served chilled but it could be just as easily warmed up. This creamy carrot gazpacho is one of my favorites from our first Cookbook. I remember when I first made it, I wanted to stop working on the book and just eat this soup every single day for lunch. It’s perfect with a slice of avocado toast on the side.…
