Beat the Wheat: Thai Curry Noodle Soup

AKA Soup-ual Healing

The Price Is Right. Gilligan’s Island reruns. A pile of blankets. Chicken noodle soup. These are the four things I want when I’m feeling under the weather, no matter what time of year it is. Whenever I was home sick from school, my mom always made chicken or beef noodle soup for me, and she let me eat in front of the TV. It was the best! In college and into my 20s, I resorted to the canned stuff whenever I had the sniffles and needed some culinary TLC.

Meatless Monday: Rustic Fall Vegetable Soup

Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?

When it comes to homemade vs. store-bought, homemade is almost always better. The questions is whether it’s worth the time and effort. Peanut butter? Go ahead and buy a jar. (I myself have a soft spot for Skippy.) But if we’re talking soup, make your own. It tastes so much better than the sodium-packed stuff from the can.

Between the craziness at work and the crazies you have to feed, a complicated recipe is the last thing you want on a weekday night. Soup is simple. Add whatever veggies you like, pick a noodle or a grain (or don’t), throw in your favorite herbs and relax as it simmers away on the stove.

Kelsey’s Rustic Fall Vegetable Soup is cozy, comforting and hearty. There are no stressful steps or fancy ingredients, and the savory aroma that fills my little apartment is seriously therapeutic. Easy and delicious, it’s just what the doctor ordered for a Monday night.

Meatless Monday: Creamy Corn and Vegetable Soup

Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?

It’s prime time to be eating corn right now. It’s crunchy, sweet and affordable — and I can’t get enough. Of course it’s great grilled straight off the cob, but it’s also really lovely in a creamy vegetable soup.

Don’t dismiss the thought of soup until fall. Loaded with zucchini, bell pepper, corn and fresh basil, this soup gets you all of the bright and fresh flavors of summer. Set the table outside and serve with crusty bread and a simple side salad for a relaxing and healthy August dinner.

Restorative Winter-Warming Soups and Stews

Did you know that January is actually National Soup Month? I’m just guessing, but perhaps there is some correlation between National Soup Month and the cold and flu season. Don’t underestimate the comforting and healing powers of a steaming broth, or how such a simple, hot meal can be so welcoming after rich holiday foods. The bitterly cold month of January is optimal for enjoying vegetable-laden, creamy-pureed or hearty meat soups.

Just pair your soup or stew with a light salad and good, crusty “mopping” bread for a warm, curative meal. This month cook your way through broths, bisques, ramen and ribollita, because they may just be the best medicines for a cold winter.

Here are 5 soups for inspiration:
