I know what you’re thinking. A soup recipe? On 1st of June? With root vegetables, not even a cold one? Yupp. Because for me, any season is soup season. It feeds my soul above everything else.
My favourite in cold winter days is soup. A hearty soup. Yet this year I rarely had any, because the winter has been barely here. No proper snow, no proper cold. But I did remember to have soup finally last weekend.
Last month, I met a close friend on a Tuesday for lunch in my favourite local restaurant. In the lunch menu was a carrot and ginger soup and I just loved it, even though I don’t always like carrot soup. But adding fresh ginger is a delicious touch indeed.
I just look at my latest recipes and realised that I’ve posted a lot of colourful dishes lately. This recipe is not like that, may even look a bit bland, but it is delicious and nutritious.
Last week I fought hard not to get sick. Seriously, I had a bit of a sore throat and a bit of headache here and there, but it wasn’t a full blown flu. So in order to keep myself warm and keep the flu further away, I made this healthy and delicious soup.
It’s been raining almost all day long in Helsinki today. When I say rain, think of a huge bulk of water pouring down from the sky. Seriously, there were no drops, there was one MASSIVE drop I believe. So of course, this horrible weather immediately prompted me to make soup. Because soup saves life.
Well, the sunshine is slowly fading these days. It’s still relatively warm, and not extremely hot like just about 10 days earlier. So, we may start to have a bit of hearty soup. But to keep the spirits high, we can make it sunshine yellow!
I usually don’t like posting same kind of recipes one after another. And I just posted another soup recipe on Monday. But this soup is too good not to share immediately. Besides, the other recipe I was planning to post turned out to be not so good yet, so here we are.
Last Sunday I needed 1 stalk of celery for a sauce. So I bought a package of celery because you cannot buy just one stalk and ended up having lots of celery in my hands. What did I do? I made lots of soup with each and every celery stalk. This chunky and herby one is one of them.
It’s September! Which means, officially it’s autumn. Yet judging by the weather, it’s unofficially still summer! I mean really, it’s quite warm today in Helsinki. But most members of pumpkin family are out in the markets so to give a start to autumn, here is a delicious pumpkin soup.
