THAI CHICKEN SOUP

Around New Years my family had a pot luck….a pot luck of soup. I guess that would make it a soup luck. Anyway, every one who came brought their favorite soup to share. Fun right?!!! There were a ton of AWESOME soups, but my most favorite was this Thai soup that my mom’s cousin had made.  I seriously could have eaten the whole pot of it with no “ragrets” (name that movie).

CLAM CHOWDER SOUP

There is a “hole in the wall” fish restaurant near us and they have some of the best chowder we have ever had. Its creamy, and dreamy and I think about it often. I don’t know about you, but for some reason clam chowder has always been one of those soups that seemed like too much work. But I really really have been wanting it lately, so I made it and it was stupid easy. If you are new to cooking, soups are always a great way to start. You basically throw things into a pot and let it cook up. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

PUMPKIN BARLEY SOUP

Every year after Halloween I always make some sort of recipe to use up the ridiculous amount of pumpkins I buy for decor!
This year I decided on a pumpkin barley soup. You guys, this was out of this world delicious! I originally made enough to have leftovers, but once my husband got a taste of it he invited his brother over to have some too and I was left with an empty pot.
If you are currently on a whole30, doing  the whole paleo thing, or barley and your tummy are enemies then simply omit. You can try subbing with cauliflower rice, but I haven’t tried that yet.
This is perfect for those cold rainy days. You’ll want to cozy up next to a fire and eat this for sure!

BRAZILIAN SHRIMP STEW

I’ve been scouring the internet lately for new soup ideas for this coming up winter. #winteriscoming and the other day I ran across a Brazilian fish soup recipe that intrigued me. I wasn’t too sure if my family would like such a fishy dinner, so I decided to just do shrimp instead, which they love.

ROASTED CAULIFLOWER SOUP

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and thankfully so have the leftovers! While looking for something to make on this rainy day I came across some cauliflower that had been literally sitting in my fridge for a couple weeks. Thank goodness cauliflower lasts forever, otherwise we would have starved for the night.  Especially because there was no way I was going to go out in the rain. (I live in California so this rain thing is just not my thang!)
