Chanterelle mushrooms and saffron are two things that I just find precious. And both of them combined is a hands-down winner. This delicious soup cooks up quickly and it’s impressive served up with crusty bread, to a small crowd as a starter. Saffron is an ingredient in Healthy On You® You’re So Spain spice blend, but a generous pinch more does the trick in making this soup come alive with color and taste.

Carrot and Asian Pear Soup with Mint Pistou and Walnuts

here comes the yum

On Orcas Island where I spend time during the summer and fall months, we have an Asian pear tree. The pears are ripe late August to mid-September and I love finding delicious ways to eat them. Carrot and ginger soup is one of my favorites but I wondered how I could incorporate Asian pears into the mix.

Fire Roasted Tomato Soup with Turkey Meatballs

let the good thymes roll

I’m loving this delicious, healthy and little spicy spin on your typical minestrone soup. First, I skip the regular canned tomatoes and use organic fire roasted tomatoes to give this dish an extra kick. Instead of pasta, chickpeas do the trick here to add a nice texture and a dose of fiber. Ground turkey is my go to when making meatballs but you can all always substitute with another organic, grass-fed meat of your choice.
