From Summer to Soup Season
With us sadly saying goodbye to summer, we're starting to look forward to our cozy sweaters, ankle boots and most importantly soup! I know the infamous PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) is normally what people look forward to this season but truth be told, I’ve never even had one before, I just don’t see the appeal. However, a pumpkin soup I could definitely get on board with. If you’ve been following us on Insta, you’ll see that I already started soup season on the first chilly day we had with a staple in our family, a white bean, kale and butternut squash soup which is like pumpkin but way easier to carry in my grocery basket. I’ll link it below. I was glad to see how many people were also as excited as I was for soup season so I’ve dedicated the rest of this post to be all about soup! If you’re not really a fan, you may want to check back in a bit but we do hope that you’ll stay.
Products: Fog bowl, Fog dinner plate, natural beeswax tapers and organic cotton hand towel in latte.
Why I’m such a soup fanatic is a) to me there’s nothing more comforting than a hot bowl of soup and b) I love how it lasts for many meals and can be eaten during any time of the day. Yes, soup for breakfast please! I love to eat but I don’t love to cook so I really love food that has longevity and is versatile. If you’re anything like me, you’re going to love these go to soup recipes!
The great thing about all 3 of these soups is that they can be eaten like a meal. The white-bean, kale and squash minestrone goes great with a crusty bread, my daughter always requests that there’s garlic butter with it. The Soondubu is so tasty on it’s own or you can also add a side of purple Korean rice.
Next week, we’ll share with you how to make your table extra special with some simple and minimalist arrangements that will last forever, so you can invite friends and family to enjoy soup with you at your pretty table. As well as our fave bowls for soups. Yes, we take soup season seriously. It is so underrated I feel. Soup has really saved me on many nights when I didn’t have the energy to cook a “real” meal, it’s easy to pull together and everyone always feels great after a big bowl of hot soup.
Let us know if you give any of these soups a try or have favourites of your own that you’d like to share. We always love trying new soup recipes.
