Pork Soup with EggsJanuary 28th, 2019 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Recipe for a soup, quick to prepare as it doesn’t require additional time to cook a broth and it also calls for a limited amount of ingredients, yet it is pretty delicious.
It is pretty filling, with all the meat and eggs, and also warming up and I think it is a perfect winter time meal.
And also great choice for the times when you are short on time.
Something simple to start a new year with.
Butternut Squash Soup PureeOctober 20th, 2018 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
With pumpkin and squash season comes time for vegetable soups using said vegetables.
Today’s recipe features butternut squash and some other fine veggies to accompany it.
It is full of veggie goodness, has hint of a spice (which you can tame a bit if you are looking for something less spicy by reducing amount of peppers) and totally great taste.
If you are a fan of the season, butternut squash soup is definitely a dish to try.
Vegetable Soup with Cauliflower and RiceJune 30th, 2018 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Don’t let the amount of ingredients this recipe calls for to scare you: it is not as hard to cook as it may seem (just many pictures).
In fact it is pretty easy, especially if you are keen on peeling and slicing. And cooking takes just about 30 mins.
If you are looking for lighter version calorie-wise, reduce amount of flour (or skip it all together).
Reducing amount of sour cream will help too, but I wouldn’t skip on it entirely, it adds a lot to the taste.
Broccoli Cheddar SoupDecember 2nd, 2017 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Cold weather winter chill favorite, hot (as in temperature) and hearty, broccoli cheddar soup.
If you like this one just like I do, but wasn’t sure if you can make it, think no further: the recipe is pretty easy to follow.
The only tricky part is to make sure flour base doesn’t burn and is gradually mixed with half half and chicken broth until smooth and creamy – make sure the heat is low and continue stirring while mixing liquids in.
Clam ChowderFebruary 11th, 2017 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
This is my take on New England Clam Chowder, which I love and always wanted to learn to cook it, and somehow always hesitated.
It appeared not as hard as I thought it would. And it doesn’t take too much time to cook this fragrant and warm soup for a cold winter day. Listed amount of ingredients will produce 3-4 portions.
As many seafoods, it is important to not overcook clams, or they will harden and will become chewy. If you like bigger pieces of clam use chopped clams, minced clams are smaller.
Don’t skip on bacon, it gives the chowder that distinctive smoky taste.
Italian Sausage Soup with CauliflowerDecember 31st, 2016 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Cauliflower and vegetables soup infused with Italian spices and cream is another creation perfect for cold winter weather: it fills and warms you up.
And that fact that this soup is pretty easy and quick to do if just another reason to try it out.
Fresh chicken broth works perfect here, however good grade boxed broth is a good option too.
Sometimes I use broth from boiling chicken thighs for salads and such, to not waste a good stuff.
If you are looking for more heat use hot Italian sausage instead of mild one or in addition to it.
Summer Squash and Spinach Soup-PureeJune 4th, 2016 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
Recipe for pretty light soft soup-puree made of summer squash, spinach and milk. And isn’t this radiant green color fantastic?
Any kind of summer squash or combination of these will work for this recipe I think, I used young zucchini and yellow squash.
Use milk for lighter version (I’ve used milk here) or half-half for reacher one.
Also, I’ve cooked fresh spinach for this recipe, but I think frozen may work as well if added to the pot later in the process to avoid overcooking, the color maybe vary in this case.
