But it’s a good one I promise.
Love Soup: 160 All-New Vegetarian Recipes from the Author of The Vegetarian Epicure
by Anna Thomas
While today is the winter solstice, it is most definitely soup weather, but then in my opinion every day is soup weather. I found this title on quite a few vegetarian food blogs. I placed a hold for it at the library and waited.
If I had known it was this good I don’t think I could have.
I love the easy intro and I feel the passion and easy approach she takes to cooking. I love that she asks you to take these as inspiration and tweak them to be your recipes. I love that there aren’t photos to discourage you. That she reminds us soups are easy. That there is an emphasis on fresh seasonal produce.
And what I really love?
A gluten free cream of mushroom soup (p76) and a no onion vege broth (for my husband who thinks onions are icky).
I made white bean and garlic soup with greens and we loved it.

Adding it to my list! Any good ideas for a soup to feed my Christmas Eve crowd? I’m making butternut squash soup for dinner the next day, but I cannot decide what to make for my open house!!
Oh–i made soup for myself for dinner (vegetarian even!) Carrot ginger soup–
2 lbs of carrot, (sliiced or chunked)
2 fingers of ginger (thumb sized)
boil till tender (do not drain)
remove about 1 cup of carrots (chop coarsely)
add broth (about 3 cups) water (also 3 cups)
chop 1 onion, saute till tender(i use butter, but …)
use blender or imersion blender to puree carrot and onions
vinagar (or sour salt, or lemon juice) i used sour salt
salt pepper, and some nutmeg (not too much!)
Add reserved chopped carrots.
cook till flavors have set (about 20 minutes at a bare simmer)
(if desired, finish with 1/4 cup cream) stir well
garnish with more sauteed onions–(cooked till well caramelized)
(and right now, i have more soup (potato onion) cooking for tomorrow (and later in the week, and next week)
Next, onion soup, (and then lentil . and then. ) love hot soup on a cold winter night!
