Spicy Black-Bean and Cabbage Stew

Spicy Black-Bean and Cabbage Stew

Happy New Year! The whirlwind activity of the holidays is behind us, decorations are packed away, and winter is settling in here.  The first snowfall of the season arrived overnight and, while it’s only an inch or so deep right now, I’m finding myself already looking […]

Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots

Leek and Potato Soup with Carrots

Leek and potato soup.  Whether you add the carrots or don’t (they do add a nice pop of color), you just can’t beat this type of soup, especially on a cold and rainy day like the one we’re having here today. These are the days […]

Vegan Curried Pumpkin Soup

Vegan Curried Pumpkin Soup

If you’re like me and ready to take a break from all the super-sweet treats that are everywhere right now, but still want to get your seasonal pumpkin fix, I have just the thing for you. This warm and savory soup is full of the flavors […]

Vegetable Stew

Vegetable Stew

This hearty vegan stew definitely hits the spot on a cool autumn day! And the recipe is very forgiving so throw in whatever seasonal vegetables you have on hand. I almost always overbuy on potatoes and celery and have found soups and stews to be an […]

Hearty Vegetable and Orzo Soup

Hearty Vegetable and Orzo Soup

I was never much of a soup eater until fairly recently. Our 4-year old loves soups like no one I’ve ever seen and would probably be just fine with me serving some version of it every day. So, we’ve naturally all adapted and become almost weekly soup eaters. […]

Chickpea and Pasta Soup with Spinach

Chipotle Spiced Black Bean Vegan Chili

Hi! Welcome to This Wife Cooks! Let me just begin by saying — Wow! What a crazy storm!! Snowzilla dumped three feet on us and we were snowed in for three days. I never fully appreciated what it meant to be “snowed in” until this past […]

Easy Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

Easy Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

I think my youngest daughter could eat soup every day of her life and be perfectly happy. Seriously, every day she asks me what we’re making for dinner that evening and every day she suggests soup. Yesterday was no different so, with the snow coming […]

Vegan Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Vegan Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Fall is here!  Time for sweaters & boots, hot apple cider, and comfort food at it’s best.  I’ve been making this family favorite every fall for several years now and it is always a big hit.  The recipe has evolved quite a bit from the […]

Cheesy Broccoli Twice Baked Potatoes

Cheesy Broccoli Twice Baked Potatoes

I love a big baked potato for dinner!   Aside from the classic-style buttered potato, BBQ vegetarian chicken had been my go-to favorite, until now. Served these up with sides of Clean Out the Fridge Soup, here, for an easy and tasty dinner! 5 Russet potatoes 1c […]
