farmers market soup

Farmers Market Soup

My Mom and I dropped in to our local Thursday Market and veggies were aplenty along with fresh ciabatta bread and vegan cashew ice cream from Rock Salt Creamery; sooooo freakin' good.

 I absolutely adore this time of year (although Fall still has my heart) - aside from growing my own veggies which just didn't happen this year, local markets are the next best thing. This past Saturday was rainy and cold, but I was up and figured I would pop down to our Saturday Market to see who braved the weather, I wasn't dissapointed and came home with another overflowing bag of early summer goodness.


Farmers Market Soup
Swiss Chard is one of my favorite Summer Veggies, I love the bight lights variety- the color is absolutely gorgeous. Heirloom striped zucchini + peppers along with green onions and wax beans were all calling to come home with me.

Speaking of veggies calling to come home with me, has anyone seen the trailer to Sausage Party? OMG hilarious, if you haven't you must watch.

I have a new favorite pasta - it is so yum. The Quinoa Macaroni and Pasta from livingNOW is so good. It is hands down the best gluten free pasta I have tried to date. There is no weird taste or texture, it is simply perfect and I use it in everything // mac n' cheese, pasta salads, soup. Well that isn't really everything, but I use it every chance that I get.

Like I mentioned before, the weather on Saturday was cold and rainy. On any rainy day, summer or not I always get the most intense craving for Soup + Grilled Cheese- anyone else with me on this?

I mean there is no official rule book saying soup is a no no during the summer right? Especially a soup that is loaded with Market veggies. I hope I didn't mess with the etiquette of soup.

Aside from the copious amounts of veggies, a healthy dose of nutritional yeast, all purpose seasoning, garlic and tomato paste make up the broth - easy peasey.

I always load on an extra spoonful of nooch once the soup is in the bowl just before enjoying.

A few other favorite finds of mine from this past week:

Drunk Waiter - this looks like too much fun

I'm so in love with this brand - drooling over this outfit

Are you a sensitive person? Kathy's post really resonated with me

brand goals // a small spirits company with beautiful branding + gorgeous photos

Obsessing over tree tattoos - I think it'll be my next ink!

Also obessing  considering this for our upcoming kitchen reno // anyone have one and love it/hate it?

  6. What is all purpose seasoning?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Typically organic all purpose seasoning has ORGANIC ONION, ORGANIC BLACK PEPPER, ORGANIC GARLIC, ORGANIC PARSLEY, ORGANIC CELERY SEED, ORGANIC BASIL, ORGANIC THYME, ORGANIC OREGANO, They are all different so use your favorite or make your own to suite your preferences by using bulk spices at your local store if they offer them.

  11. Nice soup. This summer, I was looking out for some healthy soups and smoothies which not only help in making my skin look good but even help in reducing pimples. My dermatologist recommended fresh fruits to get clear skin. And many fruits and veggies are filled with nutritious vitamins that make one healthy and have acne-sans skin.
