I recently made my Kale and Black Bean soup, and my step-father got very excited – apparently it tasted almost the way his father’s Linguiça and Kale soup had tasted. So, I listened to his suggestions, and ended up with this soup. I recently served this to several relatives at a family party, [...]
Traditional miso contains barley, a gluten-containing grain. However, there are some companies, such as Great Eastern Sun which make miso from alternate ingredients such as soy, chickpeas, and rice (their misos are also certified organic and kosher). Additionally, as miso soup is usually made using a fish broth, using a vegetable broth in [...]
Gazpacho is chilled tomato-based soup with lots of veggies and a bit of a spicy kick is just right. For my kids, I explained it was “salsa soup”, which interested them. The adults loved it, and all the kids enjoyed it, too.
On a hot summer day, a cool bowl of gazpacho [...]
In New England, there is only one kind of Clam Chowder – and it’s creamy. If you are looking for a tomato-based fish soup, we recommend Caldeirada.

My oldest daughter has been asking for more vegetarian meals. This makes me happy, as we were vegetarian before the celiac and food sensitivities took over. My daughters needed a lot of protein, so we switched our diet. 5 1/2 years later, we are able to reduce some of our dependency on [...]
Kitchen Sink Soup
Have you ever started to make a recipe, only to find out that you are inexplicably out of half of the ingredients? Of course, we make do, but sometimes the “making do” recipes are wretched, and sometimes they taste better than the original. Here’s our “everything but the kitchen sink” soup [...]
This hearty soup was inspired by a few things – my husband bought about 3 times the amount of ground beef that I normally buy, I had some odd amounts of vegetables around, and I was very chilly and wanted a warm soup with a new flavor. This cooks reasonably quickly and is a [...]
Make this for thanksgiving. In our house, it is not thanksgiving without it.
As a warning, though, I broke my crock pot with this soup (OK, it slid off the hood of my car), and my mom needed stitches from this soup. So be careful!
2 large butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped in 2 [...]
Caldeirada is a meal in itself. The ingredients depend on the catch of the day. Putting the fish on top, preserves their integrity. And this was looooved by everyone in our house!
1 pound swordfish or tuna (a firm fish)
1 pound whitefish such as flounder or cod
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and [...]
