Favorite Flavors of 2017 ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #recipe #memories

It’s New Years Day. a time of looking forward and reflecting back on the past year. 2017 was a really good year for me. I went to yoga teacher training from July through November. I had to put blogging … and a lot of other things in my life … on hold while I did […]

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Turkey Wild Rice Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #wildrice #soup #recipe

Creamy yet healthy, this turkey wild rice soup transforms leftovers into a dreamy hot bowl of comfort and deliciousness. I came home from Christmas with some special treasures … you might think I mean Christmas presents, but no, those weren’t my biggest treasures … although I had my fair share of lovely presents this year and […]

Creamy Carrot Cauliflower Soup

Dreamy Creamy Carrot Cauliflower Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cauliflower #cheese #soup #recipe

An easy vegetarian soup that’s pleasing to the eye and the palate. I’ve really been reveling in the joys of cauliflower lately and all the wonderful ways you can use it to lighten up your diet. This lovely soup is just one more bit of evidence that you can eat light and still love what you’re […]

Asparagus Crab Bisque

Asparagus Crab Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #soup #recipe

with Asiago cheese and fresh dill This soup happened by accident. I was looking for some green beans in my freezer and pulled out a package that looked like green beans, but as I thawed it, I realized that it wasn’t green beans, it was asparagus! Now, don’t get me wrong, I totally LOVE asparagus, […]

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe}

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #onion #soup #recipe

The blonde cousin of French Onion Soup, this German Onion Soup (or Zwiebelsuppe as they would say in Germany) uses chicken or vegetable broth rather than beef broth and the subtle flavors of nutmeg and thyme to provide a touch of intrigue. Topped as most onion soups are with toasted bread and melty white cheese, this soup is […]

Chicken Chile Corn Chowder

Chicken Chile Corn Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #chowder #hearty #soup #recipe

A creamy, chunky, hearty chicken chowder with corn, carrots, celery, white beans, cream cheese and a bit of heat. It is, in a way, a cross between chowder and chili. Yeah, I am in total soup mode now that winter is really upon us. The other day I was heating up my lunch and inquiring […]

Curried Red Lentil Apple Soup

Curried Red Lentil Apple Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #autumn #lentil #apple #soup #recipe

Adapted from Avocado Pesto A lovely curried lentil soup with a hint of sweet/tart apple and just a bit of heat, enough to make it lightly tingle on your tongue. The texture of the soup is soft, smooth and delicate. This month at work, they are doing a series of “fun Fridays” and one of […]

Sausage Zucchini Tomato Soup

Sausage Zucchini Tomato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #autumn #harvest #soup #recipe

As soon as the weather guy mentioned the first cold front of autumn, I was ready for soup. I had started thinking about soup long before this, but it was still too warm to actually WANT soup, so I started stashing ingredients that would be good for soup in my fridge, hoping I’d actually use […]

Irish Cabbage & Potato Soup with Ham

Irish Cabbage & Potato Soup with Ham ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #StPatricksDay #recipe

Adapted from epicurious I hear that in Ireland, this soup is made with bacon; however, the Irish bacon is different than the fatty smoked strips of goodness we eat in America. Irish bacon is a moderately marbled cut with less fat than American bacon but a bit more than Canadian. So, since there is no Irish […]

Coconut Chicken Stirfry Soup

Coconut Chicken Stirfry Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Inspired by What a Girl Eats I love a good Thai soup, but it’s difficult to find all the authentic Thai ingredients to make it … this soup has an exotic Thai taste, with ingredients that are pretty accessible to us in the middle US. I also like to transform my leftovers into new creations, […]

Shakshuka Chili Soup

Shakshuka Chili Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Remember the other day when I made Shakshuka and I mentioned that you should make a double batch of the (simple-to-make) sauce because I had other ideas for how to use it? Well, if you missed it, go pop over and introduce yourself to the deliciousness that is Shakshuka. Double the sauce recipe. Then use […]

Simple Seafood Bisque

Simple Seafood Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

A scrumptious seafood bisque that is super-simple to make, especially if you have some leftover seafood enchilada sauce on hand. I really really love the tiny flakes of crab in every creamy bite with slightly larger chunks of fish or a surprise shrimp on top and the lovely contrast of a bit of celery and […]

Bacon Provolone Potato Leek Soup

Bacon Provolone Potato Leek Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

I am rejoicing in the magic of leeks. Often throughout my culinary history, I’ve wondered why the distinction between leeks and onions? I mean really, they are just onions, right? It’s funny that it took me this long to realize that they are DIFFERENT! I like how WH Foods describes them: “With a more delicate […]

Roasted Tomato Bacon Soup

Roasted Tomato Bacon Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Inspired by Gimme Some Oven I don’t know why I never thought of this before … it’s uber simple, but makes all the difference in the world! Just a couple slices of bacon completely elevates tomato soup. If you are lucky enough to have a few fresh garden tomatoes left, roast the tomatoes in the […]

Creamy Cilantro Tomatillo Soup

Creamy Cilantro Tomatillo Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

The taste of a tomatillo is tart and lemony, but also a little sweet, especially when you roast them like I did for this soup. Tomatillos don’t turn all creamy in texture like cauliflower does when you roast and puree it; they retain a bit of their original texture even after they’ve been roasted and […]

Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese

Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

It always floors me when something simple like this turns out to taste soooo good. I made this soup with some leftover rosemary roasted squash we made when in the process of creating the Butternut Bacon Macaroni & Cheese. I was so pleased at how wonderful this soup turned out: it has a soft, silky texture, […]

Sunshine Soup {Yellow Tomato Basil Soup}

Sunshine Soup {Yellow Tomato Basil} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

My sister loves tomato basil soup. My sister also has four small children and has no time to turn around, let alone make lovely things like tomato basil soup. She did manage to plant a garden, though, and she has some gorgeous yellow tomatoes this year. She tells me she has buckets full of these […]

Creamy Havarti Cabbage Soup with Cheddar Croutons

Creamy Havarti Cabbage Soup with Cheddar Croutons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

It is the first day of spring and I keep waiting for spring-like weather, but spring seems to be dragging her feet this year. We are still having wintry weather, the forecast calls for more snow and cold and wind, and everything outside (including the sky) is gray or brown or white. Total soup weather! […]

Creole Stout Sausage Gumbo

Creole Stout Sausage Gumbo from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creole #gumbo #recipe

A hearty, spicy gumbo made with sausage, peppers, tomatoes, rice, dark stout beer, and Mystic Blue Creole Blackening Rub. Trisha over at The Mystic Blue Spice Company contacted me and asked if I’d like to create some recipes for the first in a series of eCookbooks she is creating called The Mystic Collections. Trisha and I have […]

Slightly Spicy Spinach & Porcupine Meatball Soup

Spicy Spinach & Porcupine Meatball Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatball #soup #recipe

What do you do when you have a bunch of meatballs leftover? Make soup! I gotta say, I loved the soup even more than the meatballs. Some of the rice from the meatballs falls off into the soup and mixes with the spinach and the broth and I just loved that. I thought about throwing […]

Easy Schmeasy Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup

Easy Schmeasy Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup

A healthy, creamy broccoli-potato-licious soup that’s a snap to prepare. So remember the light & luscious cheese sauce I posted yesterday? Well, maybe you didn’t see it, but here it is. I made up that sauce so I could make simple delicious things like this yummy soup when I found myself in a rush for […]

Magic “Feel Better” Soup

Feel Better Magic Soup

This soup is one of the best things to make when you’re feeling sick. I haven’t made it in years, but it was one of those things that has always made me feel better, not just because it’s full of loads of good vitamins and herbs, but also because it tastes soothing and comforting and […]

Have you ever been to New Mexico? If you haven’t, you must go. Really, schedule a trip to get there. Do it now. You must see this place before you die. It is one of the most enchanting places on earth. I used to live there. When I first moved to New Mexico from the […]
