This Chestnut Soup is a big star at my house and beyond!

The fresh herbs make a huge difference in this chestnut soup, and are easy to find everywhere.

Buy your chestnuts peeled, roasted, vacuum-packed.

All natural and inexpensive, they are easy to find in any good supermarket, and online. Lots of fabulous Israeli brands make them: Golan, Galil, Gefen etc…. This makes using chestnuts a real pleasure.

An immersion blender is extremely useful in the kitchen.

Inexpensive and unobtrusive, it allows you to blend a whole batch of soup straight in the pot.

Red Lentil Soup is ready in minutes!

Red lentils are very quick cooking, and promptly dissolve in the soup, forming a natural emulsion.

I adore lentils, and why not? Easy to use, inexpensive, and a nutritional treasure. And there are so many kinds of lentils, all delicious! Have you tried my Moroccan Lentil Soup?

Turn red lentil soup into a sauce!

Use much less liquid, say about half the liquid listed, and use the thick puree as a delicious sauce to dunk your bread in. This will make a terrific filling for savory crepes 1oo!

My Kale Fish Soup is a new star!

It bravely veers off the well-traveled Fish-Tomato combo road, with wonderful results!

It has too much going for it, with the kale and the shiitake, to be missing the tomatoes! You will love the funky and intense broth of my Kale Fish Soup.

Who knew kale could be so delicious, in addition to being so nutritious? You thought kale is good only for salads? Think again, and read this link on Kale, from, which gives you the whole scoop on kale, complete with delicious kale-based, dishes, three of them mine: an honor!

Consider this a main-course soup

The fish cooks practically on contact. Be sure to add it at the last minute, as instructed. This is the secret of its melt-in-your-mouth texture!

Quick Beet Borscht Recipe

adapted from Levana Cooks, using Garden Vegetable Levana Nourishments

quick borscht recipe lmr

My borscht is as quick as it is hearty.

It is a triumph of sweet-and-sour match.

I call my borscht quick, because although I love the Russian classic beef-based version and enjoy it occasionally, I have no intention (and neither do you, I’ll bet!) of spending half the day making the classic high-maintenance beef-based original on a regular basis. I just love the idea of a great vegetarian borscht, and all vegetarian soups, good with any meal and in all seasons.

The food processor will make short work of grating, grinding, and slicing all your ingredients—30 minutes of cooking is all my soup needs, as the ingredients’ flavors are so intense, and all ingredients are shredded fine.

Beets are totally vindicated in this soup: About time!

Moroccan Bean Soup:

Another delicious way to showcase our wonderful all-natural, all-vegetarian and inexpensive Moroccan soups.

The beans dissolve partially in the soup during cooking, making it at once  creamy and chunky, giving it its rustic look and hearty texture. Any good quality beans will do.

This delicious bean soup is inexpensive and ready in a jiffy. No problem making it with other types of white beans (lima, canellini, great Northern etc)

Please use good quality natural canned beans.

It makes all the difference! All you need to do is read the labels, to make sure no unwanted junky ingredients lurk in your food
