Leek & Celeriac Soup

I couldn’t think of anything else I wanted to put into this soup, but I was afraid it would be plain and dull. NO! It was delicious and indeed it didn’t need anything more. Well, Mr. Ferdzy lobbied for sour cream, but he is also Mr. Fat-Tooth so there is that. I thought it was excellent without it. Note that …

Brocc-a-Leekie Soup

There is no resemblance between this and the famous Scottish Cock-a-Leekie soup; in particular there are no prunes. I just found the name amusing and these days I need all the amusement I can get, however feeble. Leeks and bacon are a classic combination and broccoli works well with them too. Leeks are so sweet and agreeable they get along …

Black Bean, Corn, & Tomatillo Soup

Things seem to be taking a turn towards the Mexican around here at the moment; I guess you can thank those Poblano peppers. Tomatillos too. Mr. Ferdzy always wants to grow some and I have so few ideas of what to do with them. However, here’s one, and it went over very well. Gotta admit I just used a can …

Zucchini Soup to follow Turkish Stuffed Zucchini

When I made Turkish Style Stuffed Zucchini (and tomatoes), the recipe made no use of the centres taken out of the zucchini and tomatoes. So rather than waste them, I saved them and made this soup. You could also make it with new, unused zucchini and tomatoes if you didn’t want to make the stuffed vegetables. If you had a …

Mint & Barley Soup

Apart from cooking the barley – which is a 5 minute chore to set up the evening before, providing you use a rice cooker – this is a quick and easy soup to make. The barley and carrots give it just enough substance, the green onions and mint give it a lively flavour of spring greens. Yogurt and lemon juice …

Spinach & Mushroom Soup

I can’t believe I haven’t made Spinach & Mushroom Soup before! So delicious! Still, while this is easy enough, it can’t be said to be quick. Picky vegetable prep is picky, and slow.  Any time you use fresh spinach that is inevitable. I have to say this is worth the effort though. If you wanted to use good frozen spinach …

Mushroom Soup

Here’s another recipe that comes from Chrissy Teigen’s Cookbook, Cravings:  Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat.  As you can probably tell, I loved her cookbook!  She had me laughing with each page, she’s hilarious and I was drooling over every one of her recipes.  I’ve made a few of her recipes, Chicken Lettuce Wraps , Prosciutto-Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breasts, …

Carrot & Tomato Soup with Garlic Croutons

By itself, this is a very fast and simple soup. The garlic croutons do a lot to lift it out of the ordinary, so do make them. They are really not hard either. I used cheese bread for my croutons which in the face of the garlic was a bit subtle, but in fact did come through and was very …
