Hearty, nourishing, delicious, nutritious, and dead easy to make. This red potato, onion and garlic broth, which I affectionately refer to, as my “Happy Peasant Soup” (do you like the smiley face I made in my photo?) is quite simply phenomenal.
For a simple, impressive, and downright delicious soup, you just can’t go past this creamy cauliflower blend. I never tell people what is in it, cause it is so much fun listening to all of the creative guesses. Parsnip? Cream? Onion? What exactly makes this soup taste so good? The cashews!
I have always been a fan of the ubiquitous potato and leek soup. I thought I would try expanding on that idea a little, and adding in some greens. This soup is just delicious. When I think about grilling asparagus, I always serve it with a generous squeeze of lemon juice. Why should this soup be any different?
I am constantly overwhelmed by the surprising depth of flavor of this simple little soup, the beauty of this soup – it’s simplicity and bare ingredients. You just would not believe something so basic could taste so rich and deep AND creamy! Those macadamias are just pure magic in this soup.
The best thing about this soup? It takes less than half an hour from chopping board to table; and is dead easy. Unlike starchy soups that need about 30-40 minutes to cook through, this soup only needs about 20 minutes. Just chop up your ingredients, bring to the boil, simmer, blend and serve. I can’t seem to go past using whole roasted garlic in my soups.
This quick easy Summer cooler is like “liquid guacamole” that kicked me into a pleasure-induced coma that had me “coat-checking” my teeth and dreaming up a recipe for a “taco in a glass”. I have deliberately kept this soup simple. It is deceptively rich – with a subtle flavor that dances across the palate before leaving a lasting impression. Have a few tastes before you add more pizzazz.
