Feel Better Soup

Feel Better Soup | Well and Full | #vegan #soup #recipe

Happy Snowy Sunday! We’ve been getting seriously hit with winter vibes here in Connecticut – I don’t know how many inches of snow we’ve gotten exactly, but I DO know that I can’t get my car up and down the driveway. However, the weather is very appropriate for my second #SoupSunday… there’s nothing like a hot bowl of soup when it’s snowing like crazy outside.

So without further ado, here are the links that caught my eye this week:

1 // I’m seriously eyeing this list of healthy + decadent Valentine’s Day treats!

2 // I’m ALL ABOUT these falafel salad bowls by Snixy Kitchen (#Falafel4Lyfe)

3 // This hazelnut sugar cookie cereal by Molly of My Name is Yeh is so insanely cute and creative!!

4 // This dry rub tofu salad by Lauren Caris Cooks = AMAZING

5 // I’ve been really into the art of Claire Desjardins lately. Her abstract pieces are just beautiful, especially her use of color and composition.

7 // Some Valentine’s Day recipes from one of my chef-heroes, Yotam Ottolenghi. They’re not all vegetarian, but that sorbet recipe looks amazing.

I hope all of you have a fantastic week!

Feel Better Soup

This is the perfect feel better soup – made with healing spices and delicious aromatics, it’s perfect for when you’re feeling under the weather!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 3 -4 Bowls of Soup


  • 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion diced
  • 1 Shallot diced
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil for sauté
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Can Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 Cups Finely Chopped Kale
  • 6 Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 1 Tsp Turmeric
  • 1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 Tsp Dried Parsley
  • Salt if needed, to taste
  • Squeeze of Lemon Juice
  • Orzo or small pasta to serve
  • Avocado sliced, to serve
  • Sprouts to serve


  • Start by prepping the veggies – dice onions and shallot, mince garlic, etc.
  • Bring a soup pot to medium heat with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Add in the diced onions and shallot (not the garlic!!) and sauté for a couple of minutes until onions are soft.
  • Then, add in the minced garlic, diced tomatoes, and chopped kale and sauté until garlic is fragrant. Be sure not to let garlic brown, it will change the flavor of the soup.
  • Then, add in the vegetable stock, the squeeze of lemon juice, and spices.
  • Let everything simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
  • When done, ladle soup into bowls. Serve with as much orzo as you like, or another small pasta (rice works too). Soup is also delicious with avocado and sprouts, if that’s your thing!
  • Enjoy!

    But who would even want to brave all that snow outside when there are such cozy eats inside?! This looks wonderful! And I don’t know how you always find the most amazing cereal-related posts, but that sugar cookie cereal is like my five year old (okay let’s be honest: current :D) dream come true!!

    I love avocado in soups like these. It’s so magical the way it warms up, softens and nearly melts in the hot broth. Mmm…

    What exactly do you mean by sprouts? They look lovely and something we would enjoy. This entire recipe is getting added to my next week soup night – thanks!

      My New Roots has a great resource on sprouts, I would definitely recommend reading it! And you can also buy pre-packaged sprouts at Whole Foods. I’ve even seen them popping up in local grocery stores! Hope this helps!

    I made this but added a Serrano pepper and corn. Also I couldn’t find sprouts at my grocer. But wow, so delicious!! Thank you for sharing!

      Hi CJ, I’m so glad to hear you liked the recipe!! Serrano pepper and corn sound like great additions, I’ll have to try that myself! :)
