I make roasted vegetables at least once a week all winter. It’s so pleasant to warm the house, to make it smell good, and then to have that panful of roasted vegetables that could be boring but now are glazed with olive oil and sherry, sweetly caramelized, dark brown around the edges. If possible, use homemade broth for this soup, one that is not too sweet. The roasted vegetables will provide plenty of sweetness. Recipe from Love Soup* by Anna Thomas. more→

Though borscht is generally eaten cold, the addition of potatoes creates a more robust version for fall or winter. If you like chilled beet borscht, you’ll love this hot beet and potato borscht — it’s so warming when the cold winds blow! Unless you are fond of grating, doing so in a food processor makes the job much easier. Adapted from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons. more→
