Spicy Immune Boosting Vegetable Stock with Ginger and Mushrooms

I made this spicy, gingery, garlicky veggie stock for my best friend Gigi. Born in Texas, we both love spicy foods and she asked me for something to give her dishes a “kick”! Here it is! Not only does this stock tickle your tastebuds, it’s full of nutrients to make you feel great. Use this stock whenever a recipe calls for vegetable stock, or add vegetables to the stock and simmer until cooked through for a delicious, spicy vegetable soup. You can also use it in a salad dressing instead of oil or when making hummus!

Winter Soup au Pistou

Soup au Pistou is a French Provencal vegetable soup, usually served in the late spring and early summer with bountiful in-season vegetables (green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini and basil). . Pistou is the French term for the Italian Pesto, pounding and grinding basil, pine nuts, garlic and salt in a mortar & pestle. It is said that this classic Provençal soup was created in the 18th century by a duchess in order to seduce a marquis. It’s Valentine’s Day and I wanted to woo my husband! So I made a winter style Soup au Pistou using flavorful in-season veggies along with a “winter” Pistou made with walnuts and parsley. Watch out, this soup really works!

Caramelized Parsnip Soup With Micro Watercress

This recipe comes from Chef Jamie Simpson of The Chef’s Table. He is a genius when it comes to making super delicious vegetable forward recipes. It is easy, healthy and magnificent, and a perfect warming winter soup. Caramelizing the parsnips is the magic trick to making this soup sweet, and with a lot of depth. The original recipe calls for a little salt and maple syrup – but I have to tell you, it doesn’t need it! The micro watercress greens add a nice herbal note and texture to the soup.

The Best Kabocha Squash Soup

Seriously, this is everyone’s favorite soup — a recipe from my Chef mentor, Alfred Portale, but made with the “Eydie” treatment: subbing out veggie stock for chicken stock, cooking without oil and using minimal salt. When I first made this soup, I followed the recipe to a “t,” but I promise you, giving it the “Eydie treatment” made it healthier, and did not alter the flavor one iota!

Purple Soup with Purple Snow Peas for Romance

I have these royal looking Purple Snow Peas growing in my garden and it inspired me to make a Purple Soup! What better way to treat your loved ones like royalty than making this for them? Red onions, ginger, a spicy broth to enhance the cabbage and cauliflower, its delicious and you may make it quite delightful. If you use store bought vegetable stock just add a red chili pepper, sliced in the middle lengthwise, then simmer the stock with it for 10 minutes. Remove the pepper and now you have the kick this soup so desires!
