In this age of technology, I tend to get most of my recipes from food blogs versus paper cookbooks. I have tons of cookbooks, probably around 20! I even have a subscription to Cooking Light magazine which provides me with dozens of recipes each month. One of my favorite cookbooks is Cooking Light: Way to Cook Vegetarian.
Here are some of my other favorites!
This soup incorporates many Thai flavors and since I love Thai food, I figured this would be delicious! It actually turned out semi bland and oily. As I’ve said before, I usually follow recipes exactly the first time and then start to experiment. I would definitely decrease the oil and maybe use full fat coconut milk (or 1 full fat, 1 light). If you make this, please comment and let me know what adjustments you made!
This recipe is very simple in flavor, and VERY simple to make! I wish I had taken more notes on each recipe that I already made. From what I remember, this could have used a little more spice. Soup warms me up during the cold winter, even though it’s not that cold here in California. As you can probably already tell, I rarely cook meat but sometimes I get sick of eating so many beans/legumes. The tortellini make this soup more filling than a traditional broth based soup. I added a spoonful of pesto onto each bowl of soup because in my opinion, pesto makes everything taste better.
Soup is definitely one of my go to recipes during winter. It is unfortunate when a recipe is a flop because that means I am stuck with it all week since I live alone! Fortunately, this one was a winner to me! The flavor is a bit mild but I still really enjoyed it. Dipping bread into my soup is a must so I chose a crusty, herby bread for this soup.
Let’s just say this definitely tasted as described….carrot soup. I’m not sure if I would remake this soup as it did not have much flavor beyond the carrots. If you are more creative than I, feel free to spice this up and make it delicious! My boyfriend at the time actually loved it and got himself seconds!
