The weather here in Maryland is most certainly cooperating with my 2015 Fall Soup Plan. It’s been cold, windy and rainy for the better part of the past 5 days. Definitely soup weather. Does rainy weather make anyone else want soup as almost every meal or is it just me?
Life got a bit hectic over the past week for me. I have been feeling a bit under the weather and, of course, that is coinciding with the last week of my current short semester at school. Add in the responsibilities of my day job and just, ugh. To top it off, Murphy was hanging out at my house tonight and the frozen butternut squash I had hoped to use in some Butternut Squash Soup this week had an expiration date of 2014. Oops.
But no worries, the internets never fail us right? Here are a few links to some soup recipes around the web that I have tried and can attest to their tastiness:
Garden Corn Chowder With Basil & Chives by Isa Chandra at Post Punk Kitchen
Red Lentil Soup With Lemon by Melissa Clark at The New York Times
Pumpkin Chili from The Shrinking Kitchen
Pea and ‘Ham’ Soup (Smoked Tofu) from Veg Hot Pot
Any of these would set you straight during a chilly Fall week with some plant-based goodness. I have some of that Pumpkin Chili in the freezer, so it will be in rotation this week for me. I hope you are warm and dry wherever you are and enjoying some soup!
