Instant Noodle Soup

December 9, 2015

A recipe for Instant Noodle Soup Pots. Take the dry ingredients with you, e.g. to work. When you want your noodle soup, just pour boiling water in the jar, let sit for 2-3 minutes and you will have delicious, fresh, hot noodle soup. Recipe by That Healthy Kitchen

As promised, today I present to you one of my favorite to-go lunches/dinners: Instant Noodle Soup! Whaaaa!! It’s a dream come true, or at least for me. I used to love instant noodle soup when I was younger, it was salty, it was warm and it was super quick — no prepping or cutting of vegetables involved, just pouring in boiling water and wait 3 minutes (which was the hardest part!) and then you’d have this delicious bowl of salty soup with teeny tiny chunks of veggies and lots of noodles.

Of course, that’s not really healthy, and most of those instant noodle soups have extremely high sodium levels and actually little ingredients that were nutritious or had any significant value of vitamins and minerals.

Bouillon Powder

December 4, 2015

A recipe for homemade bouillon powder. Done within 5 minutes and without all the nasty additives that you'll normally find in bouillon powders or stock cubes. Recipe by That Healthy Kitchen

Most bouillon powders or stock cubes are chock full of additives, flavor enhancers, sugar, salt and other weird things that you don’t actually need. Although using stock cubes is an easy way to e.g. give your soups extra flavor, it can also give you all those things that you would probably prefer not ingesting. Therefore I went out onto the internet to see what alternatives there are.

Pumpkin Soup with Harissa and Orange

November 26, 2015

A recipe for Pumpkin Soup with Harissa and Orange. This soup is great to enjoy as lunch or as a light post-holiday dinner. The spicy Harissa paste and the orange juice and zest give the soup a North-African/Middle Eastern vibe. Recipe by That Healthy Kitchen

I know there are already two pumpkin soup recipes up on That Healthy Kitchen (this simple spicy one with chickpeas and this creamy one with coconut milk) and now I would like to add yet another one to my ever growing list of recipes: Pumpkin Soup with Harissa and Orange.

To those of you that don’t know what Harissa is, don’t worry, until two years ago I didn’t know either, but now I adore it! Harissa is a North-African/Middle Eastern sauce made from roasted bell peppers, red chillies, garlic and spices. Basically it is just Sriracha sauce, African/Middle Eastern style. Ever since I saw this recipe from Tieghan from Half Baked Harvest I’ve been wanting to make it at home too, but sometimes our “to-make wish list” just gets too long. I’m guessing basically everybody with Pinterest has that nowadays lol #toomuchinspiration

Spicy Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

Spicy Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

With my trip to Thailand in mind, I recently started to look more into Asian style food and recipes, because I’m actually not that familiar with the Asian kitchen! Yes, I love sushi and I’ve made some Indian curries a long time ago, but other than that I’m absolutely clueless on which spices to use, what herbs, what produce, what kinds of cooking methods, etc etc.

Creamy Red Lentil and Coconut Soup

Creamy Red Lentil and Coconut Soup

With winter approaching, I prefer easy, cosy dinners that are warming, delicious and nutritious. And what is more cosy and simple than soup?!

Admittedly, this Creamy Red Lentil and Coconut Soup isn’t the quickest (check out this tomato soup if you want a quick soup), but it is very budget friendly and perfectly spiced.

Italian Zuppa Caprese

Italian Zuppa Caprese

Do you guys love Italian food as much as I do? 🇮🇹

I don’t know what happened, but lately I’m SO into all things Italian! Example 1, 2 and 3.

For some reason, I’ve never really understood the Italian food crazy. I mean yeah, I like pizza and pasta, and even tiramisu, but ehm yeah, it’s not that special?! Well, I’ve totally changed my mind! Before starting this food blog, I was already into delicious food, and as a kid I used to bake a lot, but only when I started That Healthy Kitchen I started realizing the impact that good quality ingredients truly have on your food. I mean it when I say that a good quality ingredient can take a dish from okay to wow! And that, my friends, is exactly what Italian food is about: easy, simple recipes that become extraordinary by using high quality ingredients.

Spicy Pumpkin Soup

Happy soup season everyone! 💕

The weather here in the Netherlands has been horrible to say the least for the last couple days, and those grey-ish days always make me want to crawl into bed with a good cuppa soup and a good book or my current fave series.

Yes, imagine that… Aaahhh now I want to get back into bed!

Simple Zucchini Soup

August 12, 2015

Simple Zucchini Soup

If you are like me, and are blessed with enormous numbers of zucchinis every summer, this is a great recipe to have in your repertoire to use up that huge summer yield. Zucchinis are a perfect example of summer vegetables, with a harvest peak in July. As they tend to grow very vast, you’ll probably harvest them all around the same time, meaning that you will have a lot of zucchinis at the same time. From experience I’ve learned that they don’t really tend to freeze well, it is best to use them as soon as possible, and freeze the final product, such as this wonderful soup.
