Ahhhh…fall weather. Sweaters, boots and soups. I grew up in Florida so I was never a big soup lover. Then I moved “up North” (as we Floridians say about anywhere above South Carolina) and fell in love with warmth in a bowl. Last week I asked around for some soup inspiration and my friends were more than happy to share their favorites.
Thursday’s Pick: Cabbage Soup
This was pretty good, but I’ll admit that it wasn’t my favorite. My boyfriend M really loved it. To be fair I don’t really like one of the main ingredients (tomato juice) but I wanted to give it a chance. All in all it was still satisfying enough to eat two bowls in one day.
Lunch time: fresh from the pot
Heated up at the wellness center for dinner
I transport in tupperware, but bring my own bowl and spoon from home. It just feels more like a meal that way. I’m also not so sure about heating plastic in the microwave.
Friday’s Pick: Tortilla Soup
Cilantro + avocado + chili powder = love in my book.
One burrito wrap cut into triangles and fried in olive oil
Both of these were easy-peasy.
Do you make your own food for work? Or do you prefer take-out? What kinds of soups are you making these days?
I almost always bring my own food. I keep leftovers frozen in individual bags for emergencies. Read why I (mostly) gave up take-out here. I’m on a major soup kick: potato-leek, white bean and kale and spicy sweet potato are the latest.
What should I make next?
