Roasted Shrimp and Coconut Bisque

There are certain recipes that feel really special when you serve them to family and friends, and if you are lucky, they are pretty quick and easy to put together as well. This is one of them. We had a lovely physically-distanced brunch with old friends this weekend outdoor under my massive sugar maple tree….

Grilled Red Pepper Soup – Three Ways

The farm stands right now are filled with bargains. You’ll find sweet red peppers, pricey most of the year, offered by the basketful! They are so pretty! Beautiful, deep red and delicious in so many dishes. Stuff them, chop them up for the freezer, sauté them with onions and serve atop a bed of rice….

Iced Lemon and Wild Rice Soup

It’s still summer, it’s still nice and warm, and I’m hanging on to the season as long as possible. The calendar says September, and the humidity has broken here in the Green Mountain state. But it’s still summer in my book and that means chilled soups and anything lemon! Pat’s Iced Lemon Soup I had…

Fresh Pea and Coconut Soup

This chilled soup is light and refreshing, just the thing to enjoy on a hot summer’s evening. The first full day of summer is upon us, and we are in the middle of a little heat wave. Highs in the 90s, tons of humidity, lots of sun and pop-up thunder showers. I don’t want long…

Fire Roasted Tomato and Artichoke Soup

We can make this comfort soup entirely with items in our pantry, or dress it up with leftovers from the refrigerator. Whether living under a Stay Home order by the state, or just looking for an easy dinner on a day when there was no time to shop, this is a handy recipe to have…

Winter Market Shallot and Arugula Soup

My winter farm market had the largest shallots I’d ever seen in my life, as big as an onion; I knew I had to make something special.  The staples at our Winter CSA are reliable, and I am extremely grateful that all season long and well into spring, I can purchase organic, colorful potatoes, carrots,…

Quick Miso Soup

When you are craving miso soup, nothing else will do! The closest Japanese restaurant to us is a half hour away, so we usually plan ahead of time to make the trek, cravings for sushi or miso soup aside. But miso soup is really simple to make, and in less time than it takes to…

Yankee Cranberry Bean Soup

It was an old standby, a large pot of flavorful and filling soup that fed an army using pantry staples and leftover scraps. My mother made yankee bean soup when she had a leftover ham bone and bits of ham and wasn’t planning to make her split pea soup. She didn’t have an actual recipe…

Green Mountain Onion Soup

This variation on French onion soup gets a little twist with the additions of apple cider and maple syrup – just a touch. I love onions, and I really love French onion soup. However, what I want the most is to taste the vegetable first and foremost, so I thought I’d experiment with a vegetarian…

Vermont Cheddar, Beer, and Mushroom Soup

Follow the trails for Cheddar cheese and craft beer, and you’ll be treated to some of the best flavors of Vermont (yes, we have maps!). In this soup, we throw in a few wild mushrooms for good measure. Any where you land in Vermont, there are several things you will never be far from – maple…

Butternut Squash, Apple, & Ginger Soup

The apples are beautiful! The squash is beautiful. And we have locally grown exotic ginger just waiting to enhance just about everything, so it’s soup tonight! With a side of Apple Bread… I got lost in the apple orchard today, intentionally of course! The morning was crisp and bright the sky blue, and the car…

Grilled Tomato Soup

This flavorful soup is made with tomatoes, onions, and garlic, grilled over charcoal to add a deep, smoky background. The air cooled over the weekend to perfect weather and I used every possible excuse to be outside. Firing up the grill was at the top of the list. When I’m looking for a new spin…
