Recipes With: soup
After going home for Thanksgiving I’m on a bit of a vegetarian cook. I guess it makes sense since many of my meals at home were made up of mostly veggies thanks to my dad. I’m not complaining. The past few weeks I’d been eating pretty poorly and my body needed a cleanse of sorts. Strange, usually holiday foods are what cause your body to need a cleanse…
I’ve been wanting to try out a skinny version of lasagna soup for quite sometime now, but summer didn’t really seem like the right time to make it. But lucky for me, we’ve had a few days of cooler temperatures here in Chicago. Nothing too wild, but it’ll get into the 60s at night and for me, that’s perfect the soup temperature!
Last week I was in the beautiful Colorado Rockies with my family. We spent a lot of time hiking in mountains, visiting the town and just hanging out. You’d think I’d be sleeping great with all this working out, but I had been stressed about being away from work for so long. So after a particularly poor night’s sleep we went for another hike, about 5 miles and by the time we got home, I was beat.
Depending on where you live, summer may have already arrived, or maybe it’s not quite there yet. With temperatures in the 90s last weekend in Chicago, I think I can mark the Memorial Day holiday as the official start of summer. I’d also like to say that I hope temperatures drop a little. There’s no AC in our little old apartment.
Pho is in my top 5 favorite foods ever. I literally dream about this soup. It’s pronounced, fuh. Not fo or fa. The traditional preparation calls for simmering bones with herbs and spices for a long time. This is the quick and just as delicious version! The dish’s full name is pho ga (fuh-ga, see you got it!), meaning chicken pho. Sometimes it’s made with beef, pho bo, but I like this version better. This Vietnamese soup is perfect on a cool night and is hearty, aromatic and so delicious! The flavors are so unique and come together perfectly. I make the pho broth in bulk and freeze it in individual containers for easy one -person meals!
My family loves this soup! I got the idea for this soup from one with similar flavors at a favorite Dallas restaurant. The broth is rich and flavorful, which makes for a delicious base for this soup. Add avocados for a little creaminess too! Occasionally I’ll make a double batch of broth and freeze the broth in individual containers for a quick lunch or dinner — delicious & so easy!
I’m loving this soup — it’s a great twist from your traditional vegetable soup. The tortellini adds a unique Italian flavor and is the perfect dinner for a cold night! It makes a bunch and leftovers freeze well for any day of the week. The pasta can get squishy if you leave it in the refrigerator for a long time so either eat it or freeze it or add the tortellini individually each time you heat it up!
