Jamaican Sweet Potato Chowder

Jamaican Sweet Potato Chowder from @HealthyDelish

This subtly spicy Jamaican sweet potato chowder, loaded with bacon and spices, is ready in under 40 minutes, but it tastes even better the next day! There’s a bakery near my house that has a few soup specials every day. For the most part, there’s never anything that piques my interest but on the occasions […]

Now, you didn’t think I’d be able to make it through the party without making a soup recipe did you? Obviously, not. Seriously, sometimes I feel like I should start a second blog devoted entirely to soup, since I’m sure you all get sick of it sometimes. I can’t help it though!

This Red Pepper Bisque is surprisingly easy to make, featuring just a few simple ingredients, but it’s incredibly rich and satisfying. Asiago crisps and a hunk of crusty baguette make the perfect accompaniments.

Roasted Eggplant and Lentil Soup

Yeah, so remember how I said all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with a blanket? Apparently it’s not because it’s fall… it’s because I’m sick! Ugh. I have a terrible cold – the worst one I’ve had in years. Three of the last four meals I’ve eaten have been soup. Luckily, I have a big pot of this roasted eggplant and lentil soup in the fridge, so all I have to do is heat it up (which is about all I have the energy for right now).

This soup is just want I need though. It’s rich, earthy, and slightly spicy, with a subtle Middle Eastern flavor from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, and ras el hanout. A dollop of coconut yogurt finishes it off and balances out the spiciness.

I feel like I’ve been posting an overabundance of desserts lately – that was definitely due to a very poorly planned editorial calendar for this month. I have a few more sweets planned for next week but I have some great savory recipes planned for early October. (And I promise, what I have in store for next week is definitely worth it!)

But for today, let’s eat soup. I took a quick facebook poll to see what people wanted me to post next and soup won by a landslide. I love that you all love soup as much as I do! This chicken tortilla soup is one of my new favorites. It’s rich, spicy, and super satisfying.

Soup season is here! Soup season is here!

This creamy Thai corn chowder is the perfect way to bridge the gap between summer and fall. It has a fresh, almost floral flavor that highlights the last of summer’s sweet corn, and a thick velvety texture that’s super cozy and luxurious. I love it! And I love it even more knowing that it can be on the table in just about a half an hour (and that 20 minutes of that it just simmering the broth!)

I’ve been participating in #SundaySupper for a few months now and I absolutely love it. Now that I’ve learned the ropes, I decided to join in the other part of the movement: #WeekdaySupper.

Braised Lamb with Apricots

I thought I was headed to Morocco with this recipe, but I took a wrong turn somewhere along the way and ended up somewhere closer to India. No matter, it was still delicious even if it wasn’t traditional. This recipe takes a little longer than most of my dinners, but it’s mostly inactive time. You probably won’t want to make it on a weeknight unless you don’t mind eating late (I’m ready for dinner at 5:30… which doesn’t usually work out well since I don’t get home until closer to 6!), but it’s the kind of recipe that can easily be made ahead of time and reheated when you’re ready for it. I made this on a Sunday with plans to eat it on Tuesday, and it was so nice to come home and not have to worry about cooking. I just moved the pot from the fridge to the stove and, in the time it took to boil some rice, dinner was ready.
