What is more comforting, warming, delicious, and nourishing than a hot bowl of homemade soup? There is nothing I would rather eat on a cold and blustery winter day.
Soup is nourishing, yet frugal. You can easily combine what you have on hand-a little of this, a little of that- to make a delicious bowl of soup. It’s a frugal queen’s dream and a nourishing mom’s delight.
For example, the photo I used above was a bowl of soup I whipped together at the last minute, made from some chicken stock in my fridge, some leftover chickpeas I had from a hummus project, some veggies thrown in and some cooked rice as well. Within minutes, my husband and Elena and I were sitting down to a delicious bowl of nourishing soup.
And then, other soups are more planned and thought out at this household. There are some delicious soup recipes and ideas that I am just aching to try out sometime. Soups flavors meld so well, that you can make a flavorful soup with little trouble at all, as long as you use quality ingredients.
I think soups and stews call for a carnival all of their own, and I invite you to get in on the soup sharing fun. (Thanks to everyone who participated in the last carnival-Nourishing New Years Resolutions. It was so inspiring!)
Here’s the plan. On January the 28th, bloggers will post on their own blog their nourishing, delicious, soup or stew recipes, with a link back to the carnival post (which will be posted the night before). After I have verified your post, and double check your link, I will link back to you from my post. From there the carnival will become a resource of delicious soups and stew recipes for the rest of the winter.
If you aren’t a blogger, please feel free to leave your recipe in the comment section. We would love to hear from you.
I will be once again not using Mr. Linky as it is more helpful to you if I provide a direct link instead of using Mr.Linky’s system (it helps your google ranking more).
Finally, make sure that you base your soup on nourishing ingredients!
Spread the word, if you like, and I hope to see you then!
