Why soup now? And why these ingredients? Yes, it’s June. Where I am, it’s hot outside (it’s hit the upper 80s already). A creamy, comforting, delicious soup in this weather? In my opinion, soup is good all the time! And it makes use of the seasonal fresh broccoli that’s being harvested. Why not add some Read More
By Danielle, Contributing Writer Soup, for me is the ultimate comfort food on a cold Winter’s day. Not only that, but made with quality stock and real food ingredients it can be a bowl of awesome nourishment. Here are some simple yet amazing soups from around the web to try on snowy (or rainy) cold Read More
Daily Tip: Your body knows what it needs to be healthy, you just need to listen and pay attention to its signals. (Amanda Klenner-Labrow, Natural Living Mamma) It’s been several weeks since I’ve posted a new recipe. There was the holidays (during which I was cooking, but not really taking the time to do any Read More
This is a very yummy, creamy fall soup. It’s also healthy and satisfying! If you have family members who aren’t so thrilled with normal broth-based soups, this is a way to sneak broth into them while eating a creamy and wonderfully rich soup. Plus, who doesn’t love cheese? If you like, you could top this Read More
**This post has been entered in Real Food Wednesdays at Kelly the Kitchen Kop!** This soup recipe is actually quite versatile. It’s my standard “chicken vegetable” recipe, but I vary the vegetables a lot depending on what’s available or what I feel like having. However you do it, it’s delicious! My family generally likes Read More
This soup is a yummy, GAPS-friendly meal! And if you have people in your home who don’t really care for soup (as we do), the meatballs themselves make a great meal too. If you’re not on GAPS, feel free to add some beans to this too. Ingredients: 2 tbsp. olive oil 1 large onion, diced Read More
Have you ever heard of a stewing hen? I hadn’t, until a few weeks ago. My farmer started offering them, so I asked him what they were. Turns out they are the old laying hens that became too old to lay. They’re different because most chickens are raised only for about 3 months before slaughter, Read More
Creamed chicken is a wonderful comfort food. With the temperatures getting colder, comfort food is in order! I especially loved this one as a kid (from the frozen food section, then), so now I have created my own version. Delicious, creamy, oh-so-satisfying. Ingredients: 1/4 c. onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 4 tbsp. butter 2 Read More
**This post has been entered in Pennywise Platters Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet!** I say “minestone” in quotations like that because this is not a true minestone. A traditional minestrone would contain pasta, and I don’t use it. This makes it a lovely grain-free soup, generally suitable for those on GAPS or otherwise limiting carbs! Read More
Trying to come up with a vegetable soup that had plenty of flavor, wasn’t bitter, and didn’t rely on processed ingredients wasn’t easy. I spent many days eating bitter, nearly flavorless soup before I hit on this one. The secret is the lemon and sugar (you could use a little raw honey, too)! (It can be made without the tortellini to be dairy-free and GAPS-friendly.) Since it’s vegetarian, it’s suitable for a Good Friday meal.
