What’s better than a nice, hot bowl of soup on a cold winter day? And what’s better than stuffing your face with chocolate when you’re 100% done with cold winter days? Fortunately, we here at Persephone have got you covered for both scenarios. In case you missed them, here are all of our soup of the […]
I get the pleasure of closing out the month of soups. I hope you’ve found some tasty treats to warm up your winter, and I hope you’ll like this one as well.
Growing up in a place where the summers are hot, but the winters are atrocious (thank you, lake-effect snow!) there was nothing like a warm stew or soup to perk you up from the winter blues, while simultaneously warming up a perpetually drafty home. The tradition in my home was two thrifty, go-to meals: potato […]
January is the long, long Monday of the soul. Everyone is sick, the days aren’t noticeably longer yet, we’re all buried under a few feet of snow, and temperatures are hovering around bone-chilling. On top of all that, I got four impacted wisdom teeth removed last week (the former homes of which have now turned […]
It sounds like a weird combination, but this soup is a tradition in my family. It came from a restaurant that one of my uncles worked at in the ’80s. My mom’s family goes bonkers for it. Especially my great-uncle, who one year, hid the big container that my mom had brought to my grandmother’s […]
Seattle is known for a lot of things, including grunge, the Space Needle, Death Cab for Cutie. We should be known for our chowder. Pike’s Place Chowder has won international chowder competitions, beating out those east coast chowderheads. We have plenty of amazing fish and shellfish in the Northwest. It inspired me to make a […]
Happy Burns Night! January 25th is, in Scotland, known as Burns Night. It’s when we celebrate our beloved bard, Robert Burns; it’s a celebration involving haggis, neep, tatties and considerable amounts of whisky. So logic would dictate that the following soup involve haggis, and well, everyone has boundaries. Mine involve having haggis soup.
Bean soup and cornbread is one of my favorite winter meals. One, it’s easy peasy, especially when you use a crockpot. Two, one day’s cooking ends up being a week’s worth of meals. That’s a win/win, as far as I’m concerned.
Oh, friends, you are in for a treat. While this chili recipe seems like it has a gerbillion ingredients, and it does have to simmer for a long time, it is worth it. Because I only make this recipe a couple times per year, it makes it seem all the more special. Do you like […]
Broccoli cheddar soup is everything I want in food: comforting, nourishing, and full of cheese.
Solyanka, a meat-based hot and sour soup, originates from Russia and Ukraine. Because it can be made with any leftover meat, and because anything Soviet was highly encouraged in the former GDR, it became a staple in East German cuisine. Wherever you went, Solyanka was the soup of the day. It still is immensely popular […]
This customizable recipe is perfect cold weather food.
I am typically a fan of hearty soups with lots of spices, vegetables, or interesting ingredients. Soups that have cooked for hours, simmering into sloppy deliciousness that smell so good, you can’t stop yourself from tasting them now and then. This is not that soup.
I love curry, I love soup, and if January doesn’t inspire you to make soup, I don’t know what would. I found this recipe because I had a head of cauliflower that I needed to use. This soup is very flexible — you can can nearly any root vegetable, make it with water or broth, and […]
This soup is a simplified version of the Shiitake Rice Soup they served at The Peaceful Dragon, a now closed vegetarian restaurant where I used to waitress in Charlotte, NC. The soup was a customer and an employee favorite, and I ate many bowls of it as both. It’s got a wonderful, rich, and savory […]
