Spinach Soup

This is an ideal chilled soup to drink for health on a daily basis and even serve to guests, in a shooter for an hors d’oeuvre.  I wish I would have been the creator of this recipe, it’s that delicious.  The ratio of ingredients are perfectly balanced, no tweaking is necessary.  Quick and easy, this has become one of the staples in my diet.  Try it, you’ll fall in love with it!


Gazpacho with Quinoa Croutons

Gazpacho is a super energizing and refreshing first course on a warm summer day. It originated from Andalusia, southern Spain where day laborers working in vineyards, olive plantations, citrus groves, & wheat fields were given rations of bread and oil for their meals. Bread soaked in water made a simple soup, to which oil, garlic &  salt were added for flavor, plus whatever fresh vegetables were available–usually, tomatoes, peppers & cucumbers. This soup helped increase the energy for the workers in the hot sun. Garden of Eydie changed the recipe to increase the nutrient density of the foods and made it even more delicious than the original.

We replaced the processed bread with white quinoa, which has a delicate taste and is chewier, like bread, compared to the other varieties of quinoa. We cooked the white quinoa and added it to the soup instead of bread, and WOW!  the texture is even lighter and more interesting than soaked bread! We also created amazingly delicious Quinoa bread croutons for garnish amongst freshly cut colorful tomatoes, and voila, Garden of Eydie healthier and even more delicious Gazpacho was born!


Caramelized Carrot Soup

Trying new cooking techniques and methods really ups your game when it comes to making super special, delicious and unique dishes.  From the Modernist Cuisine cookbook, where all recipes are created with scientific ratios, I’ve learned amazing ways to enhance the food we cook.  Techniques such as sous vide, pressure cooking, smoking gun, and ingredients to maximize the way food tastes. Here we take just 3 ingredients, cook them in a pressure cooker and create the most delicious, sweet (no sugar added) and delectable carrot soup you’ll ever taste.  Serve it for lunch or dinner or pour it in a shooter for a wow hors d’oeuvre.  Carrots are the vegetable for eyesight and you’ll be “seeing” that this soup is all that and more!


Garden Green Soup

This super satisfying and warming soup is perfect for the last chilly days of winter.  I used a bunch of several kinds of swiss chard and kale from my garden and oh is it gooooood!  These highly nutrient rich dark leafy greens are simmered in water with cubes of butternut squash then finished with caramelized onions and lots of lemon juice, making this soup an easy and quick to make, meal in a bowl!


Healing Broth

I am a big fan of Anthony William as his food philosophy is right on par with all of my brilliant Plant Based Docs.  Whole food, plant based, teeny bits of oil and salt and no sugar! My Ed was under the weather from traveling so much I decided to make this healing broth for him.  He love it! It was “Test-Ed” approved. This is a beautiful soup to make and take to friends and family when they’re experiencing the sniffles!
