Broccoli Green Curry Coconut Soup

This broccoli green curry coconut soup is an exotic and flavourful departure from the classic cream of broccoli soup. Aromatic garlic and ginger, curry paste and coconut milk come together to create a soup that is a far cry from the congealed goop in a can we all had growing up. No wonder broccoli gets…

Red Curry Carrot & Sweet Potato Soup

Okay. This soup is absolutely delicious and you should probably try it! You may even have all of the ingredients on hand at this very moment. That’s precisely how I dreamt up this soup- with some sweet potatoes that needed cooking and a pantry full of staples (red lentils, vegetable broth, coconut milk)- this soup…

Beet Bourguignon

I first made beef bourguignon for my mom’s birthday earlier this year. It was a fairly involved recipe and I can recall having numerous pans on the stove simultaneously, browning off large quantities of bacon and beef. The stew turned out to be delicious and it was a wonderful celebratory meal! Flash forward to today…

Moroccan-spiced Carrot & Red Lentil Soup

I’ve been making a version of this soup for many years and it is my husband’s all-time favourite. I’ve tweaked the recipe over time to improve the nutritional balance (cue the lentils!). I absolutely love cooking with red lentils- they virtually disappear in dishes like soups (especially pureed ones), while providing a generous amount of…

Hearty Lentil-Vegetable Soup

There’s nothing more cozy and comforting on a cold day than a hot bowl of soup- don’t you agree? I made this soup on a Sunday and have thoroughly enjoyed eating it throughout the week…either a warming mug to fuel and fill my belly during the workday, or a steamy bowl in my pj’s  in…

Butternut Squash Chili

The answer to a busy workweek: meal prep! This one-pot wonder can be prepared on a Sunday and eaten for the week. Vary it from day to day by changing the garnishes, serving it with a piece of whole grain toast or on top of brown rice. If you’re not one to eat the same…

Celeriac, Parsnip & White Bean Soup

Have you every tried celeriac? This knobbly root vegetable is one I recently discovered myself – and fell in love. It has a delicate celery flavour with the heartiness of a root vegetable. It really is a must-try. This is what celeriac – also called celery root – looks like. Have a look next time…

Creamy Tomato-Cashew Soup with Herbs

Every year I say it, yet every year it takes me by surprise- how is summer over already? Okay, I suppose it’s not technically over until September 21st, but it sure has been feeling like fall these past few weeks, with cool (i.e. FREEZING!) evenings and the changing colours of the leaves. Gone are the…
