It feels good to end the year on a humble note. Simple earthy flavors that are cozy and comforting are a good way to say hello to new adventures in a new year.
Soups & Stews
Chili was our annual pre-trick-or-treating dinner as a child, and it’s a tradition I’m happy to keep going today! There’s few things that are quite as comforting as hot, thick chili topped with lots of sour cream.
It’s like Colorado heard it’s officially autumn and flipped seasons overnight! This weekend was cold, drizzly, and absolutely perfect for curling up on the couch with a blanket.
If you’ve visited Colorado, you might have seen green chile on almost every menu in some form or another. Green chile stew trades tomatoes for tomatillos and beef for shredded pork, all slow-simmered and loaded with freshly roasted green chiles.
Lazy wonton soup: for when you don’t want to spend money on takeout, but you don’t want to spend time making dumplings. Wonton-filling meatballs and wonton wrapper noodles is the easy solution!
It’s getting cold cold here lately, the kind that makes you want to curl up under a blanket with a big mug of soup – this is the right choice for dreary Mondays. Creamy and sweet but packed with veggies, this roasted corn chowder combines southwest flair with lots of filling power!
I’m bringing you a creamy, slightly-sweet, gorgeous orange soup that’s perfect for fall – and we’re not even talking about pumpkins! Yet.
Miso soup has the same soul-warming, ill-curing magic as chicken soup. There’s nothing too special about the separate ingredients, but when they come together it’s perfectly comforting.
Okay, let’s start by being honest with each other: this is vegetables and broth. It’s not sexy and it’s definitely not photogenic.
Oh, this stew. Trust me when I tell you that you need it in your life now, because it is the perfect way to warm up these freezing winter days.
