Chicken and Orzo Light Soup

No matter how hard I try to think and dig my brain, there would not be any interesting memories about soup from my childhood! I don't think Mom ever made a soup from scratch. It was always the instant, packaged soup that was quickly whipped up to keep us warm during the monsoon season. And, we always loved those packaged soups. Irrespective of the season, a soup can be the most comforting meal to enjoy with some bread on the side.

When you are on a vacation, time flies in the blink of an eye. I have no clue where did the last week go. We have been relaxing and indulging on too many yummy dishes. At this rate, I am sure we will gain a couple of pounds by the end of this trip. I am not getting too bothered about it now but I plan to lose it once I return back home. Maybe, I'll just indulge on soups for a week. I never need a season for soup and I am always looking for new recipes. Today, I…

Chicken Wonton Soup

You must be thinking I have gone crazy to enjoy soup at this time of the year and I don't blame you for that. Seriously, who enjoys soup in summer!! Summer calls for smoothies, spritzers, sorbets and something else that doesn't start with 'S' but everybody's favorite - ice creams. Somehow summer and soup doesn't fall in one sentence and yet, here I was enjoying my wonton soup in summer.

Zucchini & Avocado Cold Soup with Crispy Sticks

This is how I like to define a soup: smooth, comforting and hot steam coming off the top. Take a spoonful, blow a couple of times, slurp a little and slurp it all.. aaaahhhh! and repeat.  Then, I learned about cold soup. No kidding.. I really didn't know. In India, no matter how high the temperature shoots in summer and how humid it gets, we still like to eat hot sandwiches and hot lentil soups with equally hot rice/roti . Then, we cool ourselves off with some nimbu pani (lemon juice) or some chilled ice-cream.

Spaghetti Tortilla Soup

Most of you will definitely fall off from your chair when I say this: I never had Tortilla Soup! And it gets even worse.. I only heard of this soup about a week back... In my defense, the only thing I can say is that, in India, it's not a common dish. Yeah.. yeah, there are many more such dishes which are not common in India, but I still tried them. How could I miss this ? I had Tortilla chips, Tortilla Wrap, Tortilla Pizza, but never thought you could dip it in soup too!

Pumpkin Soup With Toasted Quinoa

Smooth to the palate with a hint of spice and coconut milk, this humble pumpkin soup gets elevated with toasted quinoa on top. While I always favor soaking slices of crusty bread in my warm bowl of soup, this time I just kept sprinkling crunchy quinoa until I reached to the bottom of the bowl.

Avocado Cucumber Cold Soup

Last year was a crazy year for us, and a very special one. A tiny person arrived in our life and turned it upside down. We became a family. Avyan took his first flight when he was just 4 months old when we moved back to India. We sold all our stuff and started from scratch with 6 suitcases packed with clothes and baby stuff, well, mostly baby stuff.   It was not an easy year for us. There were a lot of frustrating days, but others were filled with bliss and fun. A mixed bag it was. I have no…
