Silky Corn Soup
The beauty of this soup is that it is great hot or cold. If you are going to serve it chilled, I recommend pureeing until silky before adding the last of the corn kernels, and thinning it out with a bit more milk as needed just before serving.
Thai Coconut Zucchini Soup
This is one of those soups perfectly bridges the gap between summer and fall, when the nights start to cool down but the garden is still cranking. It is a symphony of dichotomies: creamy yet chunky, spicy and sweet, filling yet light.
This is best with full-fat coconut milk. Since you’ll only be using 1/2 cup, you can freeze the remainder (or better yet freeze it in two 1/2 cup portions) so that you can pull it out the next time you make this recipe.
Chunky Vegetable Dal Stew
In our newest attempt to spread our love for the humble lentil, we created a satisfying chunky dal stew.
We highly recommend full-fat coconut milk in this one, for the richness it lends. Since you'll only be using 1/2 cup, you can freeze the remainder (or better yet freeze it in two 1/2 cup portions) so that you can pull it out the next time you make this recipe.

Take-out reimagined for the home kitchen. Does it get any better than this? The toppings are highly recommended, for an extra fresh punch and crunch.

This recipe takes a little more time and a few more pots on the stove, so save it for a night when you aren't rushed. Totally worth it. An updated version of the classic packed with nutrient rich vegetables and high protein lentils.

A play on a traditional Chinese dish, this meal excels in simplicity and flavor. Serve over rice with your favorite fresh herbs and a drizzle of sriracha hot sauce.
