Veggie-centric, health at the forefront, and locally-sourced. The future of fine dining is eating clean.
Frozen scallops and thin white fish fillets are real time-savers for busy weeknights, as they thaw in a flash and take just minutes to cook. If your fennel bulb comes with the green fronds attached, feel free to use them as a pretty garnish on the soup instead of the parsley. You can use any firm white-fleshed fish for this soup – Pacific cod is another great option.
What’s Jennifer Iserloh’s secret sensuous ingredient? Kale. Her recipes prove that incorporating the antioxidant rich superfood into three meals a day is easy and delicious.
Souping is the new juicing. Soups have less sugar than juices, are warming and comforting at this time of year, plus they can be packed with veggies, protein and whole grains for added nutrient value and blood sugar management. While juice cleanses may be a thing of the past, souping is the cleanse du jour!
Kabocha, also called Japanese pumpkin, has a delectably sweet, creamy flesh. Slow-roasting this squash really brings out maximum flavor. If kabocha is not available in your area, feel free to subsitute an equal weight of acorn squash. Although acorn squash won't be as sweet, you can add a few drops of maple syrup to the mix to make up for it. Do add in all the toppings, though, which provide great flavor and texture to the soup.
The slightly sweet flavor of adzuki beans pairs beautifully with earthy miso and mushrooms in this soup. Take care to dissolve miso into a bit of broth at the end of cooking and add to the soup off the heat. By avoiding boiling the miso, you’ll preserve the beneficial enzymes and bacteria.
A hot bowl of stracciatella is the perfect antidote to a chill in the bones. Stracciatella means “little rags” in Italian and pertains to the straggly ribbons formed when eggs are drizzled in and cooked. Often, pastina is used in this soup, but beans are a heartier and less processed substitute. Parmesan rind adds an amazing savory quality, but freshly grated cheese will also do the trick.

Chill Out with Chickpeas: Chickpeas to help relieve stress? Yes! In fact, chickpeas are a good source of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that your body needs to make protein. High-tryptophan foods play a role in boosting your mood, and tryptophan is even used therapeutically to help treat anxiety, depression and sleep disorders.
Earthy lentils, a staple in many meatless diets, give this simple yet hearty soup a substantial helping of protein and fiber. Unlike larger legumes, there’s no need to presoak lentils before adding them – just pick out any pebbles or broken pieces and give them a rinse in a sieve. Sauté the onions and garlic for the soup while you prep the rest of the veggies – then set the slow cooker and go.
We’ve packed this soup with a triple-punch of greens – kale, Swiss chard and spinach. These greens contain antioxidants that help fight against oxidative stress and may help in the prevention of cancer. We’ve also added a finishing touch of pepitas (also known as pumpkin seeds), toasted with aromatic turmeric and ginger.
