It’s not often cold here, really cold anyway, and we’ve had a bit of a cold snap come through, so this was the perfect time to work on this month’s Blogger C.L.U.E. theme– soups & stews. Who doesn’t love a good belly warming bowl of comforting soup?
I was assigned to Authentic Suburban Gourmet and went right to “work” looking for a scrumptious soup to dish up. I didn’t stew over it for long (see what I did there) as I quickly came across Perfect Italian Soup, and it had my name written all over it. At this time of year I really crave a nice bowl of ribollita which makes me fondly remember my time living in Florence, Italy. Ribollita is a rustic soup made with vegetables, and bread- it translates to reboiled, as it’s a peasants soup that dates back centuries. It is classically Tuscan and perfectly delizioso. Ribollita, GOOD ribollita, is really hard to find here, but I’m always up for something with an Italian flair, and although this is a different kind of soup, it’s a great recipe to have on hand when the temperatures drop. So here’s my take on Lisa’s Italian Soup.
As we head into the holiday season, it’s nice to have a lighter, healthier option on hand for those days when you can feel you’ve overindulged. Not to say this Roasted Squash and Apple Soup isn’t perfectly satisfying and delectable any old autumn day, just keep the recipe in your back pocket for when you’re hungry for a satisfying soup.
Since it’s such a lovely spring day here in North Florida, and since I didn’t have anything planned for lunch…I decided to do an extra post for Blogger C.L.U.E. I thought it would be a great opportunity to get a veggie recipe up to share, since my first post was fabulously fruity.
