White Velvet Soup and a Guest Post at Green Kitchen Stories

The snow just won’t stop. The world is quiet and soft. It’s time for a bowl of soup.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a soup recipe here on My New Roots, and this weather is serving as divine inspiration for a piping hot bowl of creamy comfort food. It combines a few of my favorite things, golden-roasted cauliflower, garlic, onions and velvety lima beans, all blended up to create the most creamy, rich-tasting, delectable soup to cross my lips this new year. And whether your 2011 resolution was to eat more whole foods, lose weight, or cut back on meat, you’ll be checking off all three with my White Velvet Soup that tastes like anything but deprivation – it’s down-right dreamy!

David and Luise, some blogger friends who created the unbelievably beautiful site Green Kitchen Stories, are traveling around the world and asked me if I was interested in posting something on their site. A total honor. How fast can I say yes? To view the whole recipe you can head over to their blog, cruise around and drool at their spectacular photography and innovative recipes. They are the real deal.

This soup is a total breeze to make – most of the work is done for you in the oven! All it takes is a quick blend up and you’re done. So simple. Who says gourmet food can’t be incredibly fast and easy?

Hope you’re all keeping warm!
Best, Sarah B.

    They are also the entry through which very many people enter their homes at the end of long days.
    It often comes in two varieties one with dual flexible
    sides and one that has a hard side and a flexible side that looks a lot like wood
    molding. These materials are all very sturdy and
    perfect as garage gate.

    Thanks to your entire valuable hard work with this site. Betty normally takes pleasure in getting yourself into research and it’s really obvious why. I actually learn all in relation to the vibrant way you make rewarding items on this blog and even improve share from the others on this strategy so my little princess will probably be starting to learn several things. Get pleasure from all of those other 12 months. You have been doing dazzling employment.

    Oh, I love this soup.
    I added some Jerusalem artichoke because it seemed to fit. It was so delicious, and like many soups, it freezes well. and the smoked paprika oil is a brilliant addition.

    Thank you for this lovely recipe. I’ll make it again, for certain.

    My soup turned out a little brown too, but it’s mostly because I got over-zealous with my roasting. I used ground chipotle and flax oil as a garnish on mine and it was excellent!

    Hello Natashia!

    So happy you found the blog 🙂
    As all foods are different, they may produce different colours after cooking. Perhaps my beans were extra white?

    All the best,
    Sarah B

    Just found your blog, and this was the first recipe I tried – OMG so delicious! only thing is that my soup definitely didn’t come out white, more like a dirty cream/light brown colour. How did you get yours so white?

    loved this warm, winter soup!

    my local grocery didn’t have smoked paprika so i used smoked sea salt instead, a very flavorful substitue.

    Hmm, would this soup be good without the garlic? It looks so yummy and I like garlic, but it does not agree with anyone in our family, sadly. Usually I wouldn’t consider omitting an ingredient that has such a powerful role in a soup, but it just looks so healthy and tasty.

    I was very excited to see you as a guest post at Green Kitchen Stories. Poor them, traveling around Vietnam without a kitchen… :-).

    Your soup looks stunning. I was immediately drawn to it when I was checking my Green Kitchen Stories feed and had to have the recipe. I’m so pleased I discovered your blog via Green Kitchen Stories. It’s stunning and I love your photos 😀
