I'm not a fan of rainy days, but today, I'm not going to complain. It's actually been raining for several days now but its turning everything green and beautiful again.
My office window faces out back, and although the sound of the rain pouring down is quite loud, so is the sound of the birds out back. The robins, doves, chickadees & cardinals are all busy, singing, chirping, flying around and eating from my bird feeder. There is even a mamma bird who made its nest in my hanging garden and now her babies are finally popping their heads out and flying around. So, so cute.
Why am I telling you this? Because it is 1 of the reasons why I love Spring. This season is just full of life and color.
Just like my Gazpacho Soup ....like my comparison? Loaded with fresh veggies, raw, unprocessed, did I mention, fresh? I mean, you can't get much better than this. This soup is FULL of life-giving, nutrient rich veggies and vibrant color.
One of the my most requested soups to make is Dirt Soup, especially from my youngest. Boy, does he love his Dirt Soup. So much so, he's on his 3rd large bowl right now.
We're having a "Mom & Me" hang out afternoon since he's not feeling well and of course, I had to make him his favorite, feel good soup.
In case you've never heard of this soup, it actually Miso Soup but growing up, my husband always called it Dirt Soup because of the cloudy, light brown color. It is actually, one of the first Korean dishes he made for me when we first were married, but over the years, it has transferred hands and now I am the maker of this simple and delicious soup.
I cannot believe in all my 42 years of life, I never had Lasagna Soup. OH had I missed out,,,,,and so have you if you haven't ever tried this before.
Two favorites during these cold months, rolled into one!
It's a rich & robust lasagna but in the form of a warm & comforting soup...can you see why it's simply amazing?
AND...I only had to use 1 pot to make this!
But it gets even better......it's vegan, gluten-free & free of dairy, eggs, & nuts.
I've missed being able to wear jeans.
I've missed wearing tall socks and boots.
I've missed cooler evenings and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit.
I've especially missed eating foods that warm me from the inside out, like hot cereals and soup! It's just been too hot for that,,,,until now.
When my son was diagnosed with life-threatening food allergies, I took it upon myself to dive in, "head first" into all our recipes and start tweaking them to make them safe for him. At the...
