Tonight is the Oscars and we’re having a nice little party over here (as usual). I’ll be serving this super quick and easy gluten free Mushroom Soup in little shot glasses. As you can probably tell by now, pretty much any event is an excuse for me to have people over and cook healthy gluten free food.
I frankly could not really care who wins what awards tonight. I just like to hang with my posse and have good eats. In ... read more →

I’m thrilled to be a part of Pacific Natural Foods’ Everyday Chef Challenge! For the first round of the competition, $5 Dinners, Aggie’s Kitchen, Herbivoracious, A Savory Nest and I will be using a “secret” ingredient along with one of Pacific Natural Foods’ broth products *.
The secret ingredient for this round? Mushrooms. I used shiitake, though any type will work for the recipe below. And I have chosen to use their Organic Vegetable Broth.
Thai Vegetable Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely ... read more →

I can tell this Green Chicken Soup is going to become one of my go to dishes in no time at all.
I love this soup because it is an easy way to take in powerfully nutritious greens. While I love my green juices in theory, in reality, my stomach doesn’t always agree with them, especially when it’s cold outside. That’s when it’s time to make Green Chicken Soup. Somehow, the carrots and kale give the soup a delicious sweet flavor, which makes this ... read more →

It seems that Fennel Apple Soup is on everyone’s radar these days. And what better time than now?! It’s perfect soup weather here in Boulder –a toasty -2 outside, which begs for soup.
Gluten free Fennel Apple Soup has been popping up everywhere –on various gluten free yahoo groups and in various magazines. Here’s my version.
Fennel Apple Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 (medium to large) fennel bulbs stems removed and diced
2 large apples (I used Honeycrisp), peeled, cored and diced
1 quart ... read more →

This recipe was inspired by Jaden’s Lemongrass Chicken and Coconut Soup from her fabulous book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook. I received it in the mail on Friday and played with it all weekend long. It is a captivating book, full of gorgeous pictures (which she styled and shot herself) and easy recipes. I’m in love. Last night, I made this Coconut Chicken Soup, Jaden’s Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce (also from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook) and some stir fried broccoli.
The ... read more →

Soup mania continues. And this dairy free creamy pumpkin coconut ginger soup hits the spot. I decided I had to make something pumpkin today after making pumpkin pies from my gluten free cookbook (The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook) and finding myself with a bunch of leftover roasted pumpkin. Of course soup was the easiest thing to make after making one too many pumpkin pies for family and friends.
We’re having nice weather here, in the 60’s and sunny, however ... read more →

This Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup is super easy if you have chicken stock on hand.
It’s a gray day here in Boulder and I decided some soup would be in order. Chicken Noodle Soup to be exact. So what’s a gluten free grain free girl to do for noodles? Zucchini. Yes, DIY zucchini noodles.
This recipe is super easy if you have chicken stock on hand. I keep several jars in the freezer and try to have one in the fridge ... read more →

When the cold weather comes I’m in the mood for soup. This gluten free Green Soup with Ginger that I found on Heidi’s website 101cookbooks.com is quite comforting on a chilly day. And I must confess, I often eat it for breakfast to start my day out right.
I’ve probably mangled the work of art that Heidi had on her site, however, I was in the mood for something very soothing so I decided to puree this soup. I also used ... read more →

You will find this cool and creamy cucumber avocado soup refreshing on a hot summer day. I’ve been drinking it all weekend and experimenting with it along the way.
I tried making it with raw garlic, which did not go down as smoothly as I thought it would, so I eliminated that ingredient. However I did leave in the raw onion as it added a very sharp yet sweet flavor.
According to my first friend in the entire world, Amy Merideth (we ... read more →

I have to give full credit for this photo of Thai Chicken Soup to my boys. They helped me stage the shot and then sat with me at the computer to crop and size the photo. They are becoming such little artists, having far surpassed me in this arena.
The delicious Thai soup above is based on a recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. My friend Deb got me hooked on this magazine last year when she gave me a ... read more →

When my husband takes the boys up to the mountains for a night or two, first I call Martha for a hike. Then, I go into soup mode.
For me, soup is all about simplicity –vegetables and protein in a one pot meal. I make soup for dinner and often end up eating it for breakfast and lunch the next day. My husband cringes when I tell him this; he has a strong dislike of leftovers, and has not yet discovered ... read more →
