Light and Lively Spring Soups

Okra-Rice Soup

Okra and green tomatoes

A true southern classic, this okra soup was as commonplace in the nineteenth century as it is unusual today. Despite the “throw-everything-into-the-pot” simplicity of the recipe, the result is a wonderfully complex blend of flavors and textures—thanks mainly to the unique character of okra. This thick soup is  closely related to a Creole gumbo. more→

Mixed Mushrooms Soup with Bok Choy

Mixed mushrooms and bok choy soup recipe

Aromatic and broth, this mushroom-filled, Asian-flavored soup can be enjoyed any time of the year when you can find good bok choy. Generally, bok choy is a spring vegetable, but in some areas the season is extended. This is an excellent way to whet the appetite for a vegetable stir-fry or a simple tofu dish. It’s best served the moment it comes off the heat. more→

Raw Mushroom Medley Scape Soup

Mushroom Scape Soup by Joelle Amiot from Jar o Honey

Garlic scapes are the edible flower of the immature garlic plant. They have been around for thousands of years and are used in both culinary and medicinal applications. The flavor is of a soft, velvety garlic with a hint of green. I can’t think of a more perfect marriage of flavors than mushrooms and garlic! The best thing about mushrooms is that they taste great raw and cooked so I thought an in between soup would be divine. A raw mushroom soup with scapes is perfect! This soup is so simple to make yet bursting with flavor, everyone should make it at least once. Because it is only heated to 105 degrees F, it is the perfect soup also for warmer weather. Recipes and photos contributed by Joelle Amiot from her blog JarOHoney. more→
