Slow Cooker Vietnamese soup

I had this before a wedding during their home-made lunch hour, and it was the most amazing soup I've ever had. The key for me is the special beef packet, Oriental Beef Spices (gia vị nấu bò kho), which I've found at most Asian supermarkets in my area, the daikon, and freshly boiled rice noodles.

Greek Lentil Soup

This recipe is adapted from Rebar: Modern Food Cookbook, a fantastic collection of recipes from the famous restaurant on Vancouver Island.

Kabocha Squash Soup

When I first started the Whole30, I was able to curb some of my sweet cravings with my favorite squash in the whole universe - the Japanese pumpkin - or more commonly known as, the Kabocha squash.  It is common in Asian culture to have "dessert soups," so sweet soups are a familiar comfort to [...]
