Winter White Bean Soup

This is one creamy, hearty vegan bean soup! It uses easy to find ingredients, and cooks up pretty fast (~30 minutes). While it doesn’t have a ton of herbs and spices, the ones selected are quite potent. Rosemary and red pepper flakes create some serious flavor, especially with the synergy of a good broth (like…

Pumpkin Spicy Soup

In the U.S., “Pumpkin Spice” is all the rage. Americans can’t seem to get enough of Pumpkin Spice foods. But honestly, pumpkin needs the spice, because pumpkin, on it’s own, is pretty bland.

Cream of Celery Soup

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Spiced Carrot Soup

This soup is spicy in a warming curry way, bright from the lemon juice, savory from the fennel bulb, and a bit sweet from the carrots. All in all, it uses few ingredients, cooks up fast, and is very easy to make. And best of all, it tastes absolutely delicious. Ras el hanout is a…
