This recipe is from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook by Sally Fallon. It is a simple and warming soup, perfect for a cold fall or winter day. When I made this soup last week, I was excited to find all of the ingredients at my local farmer’s market – making the soup extra nutritious and tasty. The parsley and sprouted bread croutons are my additions and make the dish extra beautiful to look at too.
During the colder months nothing hits the spot like a bowl of chili. I like to make my chili with lots of veggies and either ground beef or dark meat turkey. I use bourbon to deglaze the pot after browning the meat, but you could use any alcohol you have on hand – wine, beer, etc. Or skip that step entirely and scrape the bottom of the pot when you add the crushed tomatoes.
This delicious soup is courtesy of Harvest Eating – a great website with tons of seasonal recipes. The recipe is simple, and the result is a warm and comforting soup, plus it’s a great way to use up a lot of kale. I have made this with both pastured pork chorizo sausage, turkey and chicken chorizo sausage, and all turned out well.
I love making soups all winter long. This is a recipe for Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup I stumbled upon several years ago and I make it on a regular basis during the cold weather months. The combination of the curry, ginger, and coconut milk will make your home smell delicious as you prepare it too. The original recipe is posted on 101 Cookbooks. I made a few alterations to make it my own – another great thing about soups – easy to modify to your liking.
