Some recipes are so easy to make, you may wonder why you never have before. I’ve posted a few recipes on here that only require a handful of ingredients. I never even thought about making some of these recipes until I stumbled upon them. This post features another easy recipe. This one contains a few ingredients, most of which you probably have in your pantry. However, it requires only three steps and a crock pot. I’m not lying; only three steps separate you from a delicious side dish!
Another Soup Sunday has come and gone. However, this Sunday was a little different. I made a chili for Soup Sunday. Now, do you consider chili a “soup?” I mean, in the soup section of a cookbook would you find chili? I feel like chili would be in the soup family. I digress, this week I made a killer chili for Soup Sunday. This chili combines a few flavors in one amazing dish. It’s a bonus that you make this in the crock pot, and it’s wonderfully easy.
There are some comfort foods that are slightly more difficult to have as a vegetarian. Growing up, we used to have chicken pot pies all the time. Buttery, flaky crusts with warm, delicious filling? Yes please. However, since becoming a vegetarian almost ten years ago, I can count the amount of times I’ve had a vegetarian-friendly pot pie on one hand. It’s just one of those foods that I miss having. So, for Soup Sunday, I decided to make a pot pie soup.
So for the new year, I decided to make a resolution. I’m already on a fitness journey, so I wanted to pick a resolution that focused on food. I decided I wanted to try a new food each month. Now, this could be a food I’ve never had before, or this could be a food I’ve had but that I personally have not made. So for the next year you will see some recipes that feature one or both parts of my resolution. This is the first post in my resolution collection.
As the weekend rolls on through, so does one of the most anticipated days in our house: Soup Sunday. This will be the fifth post about Soup Sunday. This is kind of a big deal in our house, seriously. Soups are wonderful. They are easy to make and typically on the lower calorie side. Also, doesn’t Sunday seem like it was meant for soup? I digress about my love for Soup Sunday. On to the soup…
I have tried to be adventurous this year with my cooking. I really should have made it a New Year’s resolution in fact. Usually, I am stubborn and don’t like trying new things, especially new foods. I am very particular, and I just know I won’t like certain foods even before trying them. Well, I made a side dish this weekend that I never would have willingly tried before this year. In fact, I was very excited to make this dish!
Sundays are typically my lazy day. This is one of the reasons I chose to do Soup Sundays on Sundays. I don’t have to typically invest a lot of time into soups, which makes them perfect for Sundays. I also love Soup Sunday because soups tend to be lower in calorie, so they are perfect for “rest days.” There are a few soups I keep on regular rotation. This happens to be one of those soups.
Soup Sunday made its return this weekend at my house. Last Sunday, I was going to make one of my favorite soups, but some things came up so Soup Sunday was postponed. Now it’s back! I try to mix up soups so we try new ones, like when I made Creamy Cauliflower Soup, and old favorites. Well, it was time for an old favorite this week. This soup is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most delicious soups you can make. Please give a warm welcome to my Crock Pot Taco Soup!
