Soups

The perfect companion at lunch with your favorite sandwich. These soups are so good they are a meal unto themselves.

Carrot Ginger Soup

What's up doc? Your mother told you that eating carrots was good for your eyesight. Your friends told you about the health benefits of ginger. But did you know that red onions contain the antioxidant quercetin that is believed to protect against cataracts? It's the reason why we have included red onions in this recipe. We don't want our mother mad at us. Prep time is approximately 20-30 minutes depending on how thoroughly you wash your carrots.

Celeriac and Stilton Soup

Let's start off with a quick explanation of what we are making and what we are making it with. This soup is great for the holidays - from Thanksgiving through to the New Year. Celeriac is also known as celery root and Stilton is a type of blue cheese originating from England. Together, in a soup, they help make every family get together that much more special.

Chioggia Beet Soup

For this recipe we have tried something a little different. We have used chioggia beets instead of your classic red beets. The taste is a little different, the color is a little different and your hands don't get stained from chopping and dicing the beets. That alone makes it a winner in our books.

Garlic Artichoke Soup

Is it a garlic soup with artichokes or an artichoke soup with garlic? We'll let you decide. For ease of use and to reduce your cooking time you may want to substitute the five fresh artichoke hearts for frozen or one can(ned) artichokes. You should avoid marinated artichokes for this recipe. Prep time is approximately 10-15 minutes.

Leek and Potato Soup

Fall has officially arrived when your first leek soup of the year is simmering on the stovetop. Delicious hot or cold, our leek soup is easy to make and a delight to ladle into a bowl. This recipe will feed an army, (or the customers we expected to taste our dreamy soup one fall day at the Orillia market but didn't as we forgot the soup in the fridge that morning).
