Potato Leek Soup Face Off

We’re hitting record lows in Chicago (and across the US), so what better way to warm up than a hot bowl of soup? I find myself making soup on a regular basis this time of year, and Potato Leek is one of my go-to soups; it is an easy to follow recipe, it comes together quickly and I usually have all ingredients on hand (with the exception of the leeks).

Vegan Potato Leek Soup

For me leeks were one of those intimidating looking vegetables at the grocery store and as scared of Kale as I used to be, I was equally scared of leeks. I didn’t know what they tasted like, I didn’t know any recipes that called for them and I had no idea how to prepare them. Read more

Potato Leek Soup

Because everyone is talking about how cold it is outside, I will not be talking about how cold it is… though, it’s really freaking cold outside. Instead, I will write about my resolve to actually adhere to my resolutions this year.

I’m always trying to think of ways to minimize my food waste and I never realized that stale bread was a staple of gazpacho, did you? Now I know what I am going to do with all the stale bread and leftover vegetables in my house. Read more

White Bean, Turkey & Kale Soup

Here’s the deal. I really hate planning things out in advance. I’m not the best at packing ahead for trips, setting up a weekly menu for myself, or even getting a grocery list together before I get to Whole Foods. Of course the last one might be a bit on purpose, since I like having an excuse to get a tea and stare at the cute baristas while I gather my thoughts. Read more

Smoky White Bean & Kale Soup

Soup doesn’t always have to take hours; this one comes together and is ready to eat in under an hour, start to finish. And if you are anything like me you likely have all the ingredients on hand and could make this soup today without stepping foot in the grocery store. Read more

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

About 5 years ago, I decided to try being vegan for 3 months. This was my first step in understanding where the food I consume comes from and what I am putting in my body. Learning about the vegan diet, opened my eyes to how animals make their way to our plates and how our decisions can affect the world we live in. Read more
