Rainy Soup for the Soul

27 May

Ready for a joke?

What do you get when you cross 3 days of rain + 1 Baby Boo + 1  Mama ??


Little Helper in the Kitchen:

Broken dishes:

Broken Wisk-A-Mabober:

Yogurt in the Bathtub: (Don’t even go there)

Peeling the skins off Chickpeas: (P.S. I was doing a spell check and realized I almost left the L out of Peeling…)

And the most delicious soup I have had to date:

Zucchini, Sweet Potato, and Cilantro Soup

Recipe by: 101 cookbooks.

Changes I made from the original recipe:

-Instead of Potatoes I used Sweet Potatoes

-Added an extra 1/2 cup cilantro

-Added seasonings: Cumin, Paprika, Salt, and Pepper

-Topped with Roasted Pumpkin Seeds and Drizzled with “Cheeze Sauce”

-“Cheeze Sauce idea from OhShe Glows: 1/4 cup hummus, 1-2 TB non diary milk, and 2 TB nutritional yeast all mixed together.

Best. Soup.Ever.

Warm, inviting, delicious, comforting, creamy, and did I say delicious?!

Oh, and if you must know, the yogurt in the bath tub had to do with a dumb idea on the internet.

It was an “edible” finger painting activity that turned into an episode of wipeout..

and no not Baby Boo…

Rain Rain please go away..

Some of us are going crazy…okay?

    Ohhh… good call using the sweet potato instead of the white potato! (I have never liked “regular” potatoes 🙂 ) Thanks for the “cheese” sauce reminder too – that will be making an appearance in today’s lunch!

    Looks like you guys have an eventful rainy day. She’s SO cute. 🙂

      I love sweet potatoes! Way better than the regular ones too 🙂
      and the cheeze sauce is seriously a staple in everything for me! 🙂
      And thank you for your compliment!

    What a great little helper Baby Boo is 🙂 And oh my goodness – I peeled chickpeas once and I will NEVER do it again!! haha 🙂 Instead, I invested in a Blendtec and it pulverizes anything so there is no need to peel them. The soup looks so tasty!!!

    • ThE DiVa DiSh May 31, 2011 at 5:01 pm #

      OH yes it was SO much fun peeling those chickpeas! haha..def requires time! I have a vitamix, so it does pretty good, but I still can’t get my hummus super creamy. 😦
