Happy, Healthy Kitchen – Yummy Homemade Soups

Happy, Healthy Kitchen – Yummy Homemade Soups to Warm Your Soul

One of my favorite things about this time of year is making a different pot of yummy, cozy soup each week. Each pot is not only full of good nutrition but comforting to my soul as well. I call them my love soups because I create each hearty soup with love, for me and my family’s good health and enjoyment. As mentioned before, I am a big fan of meal prepping for success in reaching my health goals. And I have to admit having the soup already in the fridge makes dinnertime a snap. I love soup so much that I happily eat it all week and will sometimes add a slice of homemade cornbread to my bowl or side salad depending on my mood.  Sometimes my husband will eat soup with me or have a different meal I have usually prepped in advance for the week.

I vary my soups from week to week depending on what veggies I have on hand and also what is in season. I have to admit I am a huge fan of potatoes and more often than not, my soup will include either red, gold or sweet potatoes. The soup in my fridge now is one I made up which includes onion, carrot, celery, leek, butternut squash, crimini mushroom, corn and little red potatoes. I love to use my immersion blender to blend about half of the pot into a thicker, creamy but still chunky consistency. This time I added about one cup of cashew cream to make the soup even creamier like a chowder. It turned out delicious! Whenever I create a soup recipe that is a definite winner, I make sure to write down all the ingredients and spices I used so I can make it again.

Speaking of chowder, the soup I made last week was a new recipe I tried from Gena Hamshaw of the Full Helping. It is her Creamy Vegan Cauliflower Corn Chowder. Oh. My. Goodness. It was fantastic and SO tasty. In fact, I have all the ingredients to make it again the end of this week. YUM! I hope you try it out and enjoy it as much as my family and I did! Bon appetit!
