Our week in Vietnam was the most delicious week of my life. We were lucky enough to get to try many of the important local dishes in each region — and when our guides heard I was looking for something specific, they always made sure to take me to their favourite spot for that meal! […]
Our weather turned this morning — it’s officially fall, and I’m loving it. ‘Tis the season of fuzzy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and most importantly, soup! Now, my Mum is the soup alchemist in our family, but I’ve come up with something delicious… chickpea, fennel and summer squash, cooked in white wine with herbes de […]
We’re right on the cusp of summer-weather turning into fall-weather here… it’s just starting to get cool and rainy, and so Ashley and I are starting to crave fall foods. What better way to warm up than with a bowl of soup? We both love Potato Leek Soup, but it’s often not vegan-friendly. So we’ve […]
I got so excited the other day when I discovered that I could get gluten-free ramen noodles delivered with my veggie box!!! I immediately ordered a pack of the (organic, gluten-free & vegan) Jade Pearl Rice Ramen Noodles — and got excited for the soup I was planning on making. In undergrad, I just about […]
Who needs take out when you can make Chinese food this good at home?
As you may know, Nicole and I have a mutual affinity for anything related to pickles. From our Pickled Soprano Cocktails to Dill Pickle Hummus, we will attempt to put pickles in anything and everything. Last Christmas, her prezzie to me included a pickle-flavoured candy cane (sweet and pickle-y — weird and great for Christmas), and my prezzie to her included a glass pickle Christmas ornament. You could call us pickle obsessed.
So we all have colds in Casa del Kitchen Operas right now… so it was time for spicy soup. Our usual cold remedy of choice is either a big bowl of Tom Yum with Brown Rice Vermicelli or Miso & Coconut Soup with Soba Noodles. However, we had a craving around these parts for Thai […]
I was in San Francisco last week, and my absolute favourite place to visit while I’m there is Samovar Tea Lounge in the Yerba Buena Gardens. I stopped in for tea and lunch, and was treated to a quite place away from the hustle and bustle of both the city and of the conference I […]
I’ve been experimenting with the green garlic that I’ve been getting in my fabulous veggie box… it’s kind of like having fresh garlic, garlic scapes, leeks, and onions, all at the same time! I used all of the parts of the green garlic in this soup and it was oh-so delicious and garlicky without being […]
Dear Soup, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 1) You are magic. Somehow, soup as a whole is always better than the sum of its parts. You put veggies in a pot with some water, and they come out tasting incredible. Magic. 2) You make me love winter. Because who doesn’t […]
