My journey along the yellow brick road to becoming an RD
Mmmm delicious! I love making soups this time of year, since they're super easy and tasty...definitely adding this to my list :)
That looks so hearty and warm! Yummy, yummy. I have a serious soft spot for chicken and dumplings...so. good.
Soups are an absolute must in cold weather...I've been making them a lot lately! I'm a bit fan of pureed squash or sweet potato soup. If I'm trying to healthify a comfort food, I usually reduce the butter, replace the milk with a lower fat (or almond) milk, less crust/breadcrumbs...something along those lines! I like the idea of replacing a roux with cauliflower, that's clever!
Good idea with that cauliflower puree, so smart! That soup looks great too. I'm not a big soup fan unless it's hearty and filling and that stuff look bomb!
Both meals look amazing, Chelsea! I love the idea of using cauliflower puree as a roux! That's actually a frequent problem I run into with gluten free cooking; sometimes I'll substitute corn starch, but it's just not the same. I'm definitely going to try this technique! I love Ellie Krieger's recipes, and would love to give the baked penne a try! The soup is something I know I'd really enjoy, too - especially because it contains kale, something I haven't been able to get enough of lately. My favorite winter soup is either broccoli-cheddar or potato cheddar. Both are so comforting! Hope you're enjoying your weekend, dear friend! xoxo <3
Ive seen so many recipes for Kale soup, need to make asap!
i have never really found a way to enjoy kale because I don't like it alone but this is a great way to try it
I am definitely making this! I have never thought of a cauliflower puree to replace a roux! I will be trying that too!
MMMMMMMM comfort food! Okay, the cheesy noodles are what's really calling my name here haha. I have had a white bean/kale soup before (I think it was at Whole Foods?), but turkey sausage would be an awesome addition!
I've never tried turkey sausage but it the soup sounds lovely. I'm big into making soups at the moment. My current love is chicken soup with lots of veg!
This soup looks so good! I love soup in the winter! Perfect comfort food.
Ellie Kreiger has some good recipes! I love her whole wheat pancakes.
i looooove all soups!!!
You had me at kale & turkey sausage! Right now anything with warm carbs and nut butters are considered a comfort meal :)
I've always wanted to try a turkey soup like this. Looks really good Chelsea!
Every time I visit your blog, I end up leaving super hungry. You have a real talent for creating recipes and photographing dishes; and I love how you're always trying new things! Share some of that culinary genius with me? :D
I love finding healthy variations of classic comfort food! I love me some mac n' cheese, but it can be a bit heavy. Just because I'm looking to food for "comfort", doesn't mean I want to be in a coma for the rest of the day! I'm definitely curious about this cauliflower "roux". I've heard of it once before, but never knew it if was really worth it to try.The soup looks fantastic! I remember the first time I added parm rind to a soup I was making...love the flavor it lends! I'm definitely not picky when it comes to soup, but right now, I could really go for a creamy tomato and some grilled cheese!
