Cream of Tomato Soup (Vegan)
In early summer I bought several tomato plants from our local nursery. I had been hoping to have a variety of different types of tomatoes to enjoy through out the summer.
Ham and Tortellini Soup
I planted some winter greens last fall, and now (May) I have a lot of kale which needs to be eaten before I plant spring veggies. Kale is very hardy and can easily handle the moderately cold winters here in Oregon. I like to use kale many different ways but my favorite use is in…
Egg Drop Soup
One of my favorite things about going out to a Chinese restaurant is getting piping-hot egg drop soup to start out the meal. You need few ingredients to make this but the taste is amazing when it’s done right.
Potato Leek Soup (Vichyssoise)
In 2004 I was living in Wisconsin and one day was eating lunch at work with a co-worker who grew up in Denmark. She had a very delicious-smelling soup that I had never seen before. She offered me a taste and said it was called Vichyssoise.
White Chicken Chili

Although cauliflower is probably no one’s favorite vegetable, it can be terrific with the right combination of spices and cooking methods.
Curried Asparagus Soup
One of the spring vegetables I really like is asparagus. I also really like curry, which is basically a combination of spices including cumin, coriander, turmeric, fennel, cinnamon, cloves, and chili. I’ve been making a lot of soups lately, as my family just really likes that style of meal. It’s also less work quite honestly.…
Hearty Vegetable Soup
We recently took an awesome trip to Central Oregon and visited the beautiful High Desert Museum. We stopped for a bite to eat in their café and I discovered an unusual minestrone soup that I really enjoyed. The flavor of the soup was really unique as it contained asparagus, artichoke hearts, and garbanzo beans along…
Awesome Chili That Happens To Be Vegan
I have been trying to incorporate more beans, lentils, and vegetables into our daily meals. With the right combination of spices, you can turn boring canned beans into something really spectacular. In my university job I was tasked with creating new and exciting vegan and vegetarian recipes for college students. One of the dishes that…
