Mirepoix: red onion, celery, carrot. Chicken, eggplant, macaroni noodle, red bell pepper, garlic, fresh basil, wasabi powder.
Wasabi in chicken soup? Heck yeah!
Just a note: I’ve been sweating the mirepoix in coconut oil for the past half year or so. Certainly olive oil, bacon fat, butter, or other fats work great.
Mirepoix: red onion, celery, carrot. Roasted cauliflower, quinoa, raisin, half and half, coconut milk, coconut flakes, curry powder, ginger.
This was a fun one, jam packed with pureed and chunks of cauliflower.

Red onion, chicken, kale, eggplant, shiitake mushroom, rice, liquid aminos, nori komi furikake (Japanese seasoning), lemon ginger burst juice.
Martin was out, and once again we were swamped, so this day I made three soups. This was the quick and dirty third soup, but with some fun Japanese flavors.
Had never seen lemon ginger burst juice before, but it worked perfectly, adding a nice acidic touch.
Skirt steak, ground beef, onion, celery, carrot, potato, zucchini, asparagus, tomato, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic, Italian seasoning.
Perfectly hearty soup to ward off the winter chills. By Michele.
Tri-tip steak, potato, cauliflower, mashed potato, roasted potato, sun-dried tomato, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, goat cheese.
One of the very few times we didn’t have any onions. I’m crying for not crying.
Bacon, rice, broccoli, zucchini, celery, fresh basil, white pepper, sambal oelek.
The city opened a new cold-weather shelter nearby, and we’ve been swamped. Thus I stayed late and whipped this little devil together. It was extra thick and flavorful, so it likely will be cut into two soups tomorrow.

Mirepoix: yellow onion, celery, orange bell pepper, parsnip, fennel. Tempura shrimp, potato, zucchini, mushroom, green bell pepper, coconut milk, coconut cream, half and half, butter, fresh Thai basil, fresh basil, garlic, sambal oelek (Indonesian hot chili sauce).
The chili sauce added a sly underneath heat. And yay for coconut.
