I haven’t done nearly as much soup making this fall as I had hoped. Luckily, there is still an entire winter to make up for it. Although, it doesn’t really feel like winter around here. Who else is having unusually warm and dry weather right now?
This recipe came about when Dana + John, of Minimalist Baker, asked me to be a part of a blogger e-cookbook for Charity Water. I instantly agreed and started thinking about things I could make. Charity Water is a non-profit group working to bring clean + safe drinking water to developing countries. The work they have done is mind blowing, which I urge you to check out. My husband and a few other friends have worked with similar non-profits for this exact cause and it is something I feel very strongly about supporting.
The idea for the e-cookbook was to keep the focus on water and use at least 1 cup in whatever recipe we submitted. I instantly thought this was the perfect reason to make a gigantic pot of soup.
This soup is chock-full of veggies, both gluten free + vegan, and packed with quinoa and lentils. Sometimes I like a good creamy soup, but sometimes I prefer soup with a lot of texture.
And this is definitely full of hearty texture. I highly recommend pairing it with a buttery-golden grilled cheese sandwich and putting it on your to-make list this winter along with the other recipes in the book!
So what will you find in the e-cookbook?
Nine impressive recipes with photos from Dana + John of Minimalist Baker, Kate of Cookie + Kate, Erin of Naturally Ella, Kristin of Iowa Girl Eats, Kelsey of Happyolks, and myself. I was thrilled to work on a project with this list of extremely talented bloggers. You’ll find a fun + delicious compilation of recipes from hot chocolate, to soup, to mousse, to pizza, to quinoa salad, and more.
