Gazpacho!!

This is one of the easiest soups I have ever made!! I was a bit skeptical about it when I looked at the recipe, but it was a recipe of my aunt’s, so I decided to have faith & give it a try! 

Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut

This recipe is from the Cooking New York Times. It is delicious. The recipe calls for cutting up some red onion & kale, sautéing it & adding it to the soup as a garnish. This was good, but in the future I might just eat the soup without the kale/onion. Both of these were good…

Lentil Soup with Bulgur

This soup is rich and tasty. The bulgur adds a delicious heartiness to the broth so that just a chunk of fresh bread along side is all you need. I cooked mine a bit too long so it actually became kind of like a lentil and bulgur stew which was good too!! Murray ate it just…
