Healthy Corn Chowder – Dairy free

Healthy Corn Chowder – Dairy free

Okay, okay, I know a chowder must contain milk or cream for it to be a real chowder. But… on a dairy free blog, that just wouldn’t work, right? So please, no bad feelings if I took  dairy out of the equation. Milk is not  good for you even if you’re not allergic, anyway. This healthy corn chowder is of course dairy free, egg free and nut free. Nothing very bad inside, just don’t over eat it, or the corn might give you some trouble, if you know what I mean….

There is no need to munch on bland food when good combinations are so easy to achieve. This simple leek and potato soup is my family’s favourite. I don’t know exactly…

If you make new year’s resolutions and swear by them for a month or so, and you decided to take on a healthier diet this year, this recipe might be just right for you.

Homemade Beef Broth – A Soup That Tastes like Home

Homemade Beef Broth – A Soup That Tastes like Home

If there is one dish that tastes and feels like home, it is this one. I don’t know if it is like that only in my region or all around the world, but a plate of hot homemade beef broth always makes my heart sing.  This clear broth is a very rich soup that takes a lot of time to cook. It is a kind of a beef stock, but consumed as a stand alone dish, and not only as an ingredient in other recipes, kind of a tastier substitute for water. …

Pumpkin Coconut Soup – Dairy free but Creamy

Pumpkin Coconut Soup – Dairy free but Creamy

Fall is my favourite time of the year. It is something about all the colours in the nature, temperatures that are bearable again, and of course a lot of good seasonal food. Autumn is that time of the year when you start ordering red instead of white wine but at the same time you still wear short sleeves during the day. It is simply fantastic. Plus, my birthday is in the autumn. A dish that most resembles my sentiments toward autumn is pumpkin coconut soup and here’s why. It is always best…

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Potatoes and Dumplings

Let me tell you a little story behind this creamy cauliflower soup recipe… Me and my husband are quite lucky to have very good metabolisms so we can basically eat a lot and don’t get fat which is on one hand a blessing but on the other not very healthy. Our diet got even worse when I had to go on diet without dairy, eggs, nuts,.. so we baked a lot of bread and guess what, we did not throw any away, we ate it all. When we have a…

A healthy lentil soup might not sound like much, but I promise you, this simple and healthy dish is – delicious. I know people always say that when they give you a recipe, but this time it is for real. And it contains no milk, eggs or nuts, which is also why it’s such a gem. Even though lentil always has a vege subtone, this one really gives you a kind of a meaty inner satisfaction. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, don’t let this sentence discourage you from trying it. You try…

Strong Broccoli Soup

Strong Broccoli Soup

Broccoli. Children around the world are scared of the word itself. But I don’t know why. Maybe they have been fed soggy and bland broccoli dishes with mostly overcooked vegetables. Which is a shame, because it is one of the tastiest. And I really mean it. If accompanied with other flavorful vegetables like leek, it becomes more and more a winning combination. Add little bits of meat to enhance flavor and make dish suitable as a main course, and you saved the day. This is a super easy soup for…
