I was excited to hear from Helena over at Low Carb Lovelies when I found out she wanted to feature me as a guest poster on her very impressive and dedicated blog. We were lucky enough to find each other in the world of WordPress and she was looking for a soup to warm her bones. Just as a chill has been settling in where she lives in Australia, it has been heating up here in Toronto. Normally this is where I put a pause on all things soup for the summer, yet I excitedly accepted the offer, as I had loads of chicken stock in my freezer to use up before summer truly sets in here.

Chicken Fajita Soup (Low Carb)

Most of my soup recipes start as a quick thought I’ll jot down and then save in my gmail account draft folder as an unsent email entitled “recipes”. I usually have a few soup ideas written down at a time and I’ll slowly add ingredients to each idea when I think of what would work well.

Sometimes I get so carried away in creating such complex soup recipes that I forget to include the easier ones I’ve tried out that require few ingredients and little time. Continue reading Simple Cream of Celery Soup (Low Carb, Vegetarian)

Simple Homemade Turkey Stock (Low Carb)

This stock is super simple and it’s so flavourful that you needn’t fuss with any additional ingredients, such as vegetables, if you don’t feel like it.

This is a great way to use up holiday turkey leftovers. I usually freeze my bones and forget all about them for a few months. I made this using frozen bones from Christmas. It is now well past the holiday season. This stock would make a great turkey stew if you had any leftover meat. I used it to make my Sriracha Turkey Chili recipe.

After more than a year of blogging about soups and experiencing the many frustrations of using an upright blender, I have finally got my hands on an immersion blender.

It’s about time, no? Continue reading Spicy Cauliflower and Jalapeño Soup (Low Carb, Vegetarian)

Roasted Eggplant Burgers (Low Carb, Vegan)

I think the winter may be starting to wear on me. I’ve been feeling a little uninspired and not as much up to cooking as I usually am. I find myself eating ingredients or parts of meals for lunches and dinners. Eating an avocado, a tomato, and fistfuls of arugula separately rather than putting it together to make a salad. I’ll get back into it eventually, but there is still so much winter left and February is always the toughest to get through. Continue reading Roasted Eggplant Burgers (Low Carb, Vegan)

Red Onion and Fennel Soup with Gruyere (Low Carb, Vegetarian)

I’ve been suffering from a cold for about 5 weeks now. It’s been so long since I could breathe through my nose that I’m starting to forget what that feels like. Of course this also means that my sense of taste is completely off. I’ve had to step up my flavour game in a big way because I want to remember what food tastes like.
