  • Chicken Pot Pie Soup

    Chicken Pot Pie Soup

    Broth gives this comforting soup plenty of meaty flavor, but you can stir in chopped cooked chicken for a heartier version. The recipe comes from La Soupe, a nonprofit cafe that helps feed hungry families in Cincinnati.

  • Better-For-You Taco Meat

    Better-For-You Taco Meat

    Nutrient-filled mushrooms replace some of the beef in this family-friendly taco filling, but they're finely chopped, so you won't even notice they're there! Use the meat for tacos, or on nachos or baked potatoes. (And feel free to trade the ground beef for pork or turkey.)

  • Thai Egg Drop Soup

    Thai Egg Drop Soup

    Curry paste and fish sauce (both available at large supermarkets) give a Thai twist to the Chinese take-out staple. Ready in about 20 minutes, this recipe from La Soupe cafe in Cincinnati is a great pantry recipe for frigid winter weeknights.

  • Sweet Potato and Caramelized Onion Soup

    Sweet Potato and Caramelized Onion Soup

    Nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and naturally sugary Vidalia onion and sweet potato mingle to evoke pumpkin pie. The soup (which is served at La Soupe in Cincinnati) is dairy-free, but if you like, swirl in some sour cream or crème fraîche.

  • Sweet-and-Salty Scotcheroos

    Sweet-and-Salty Scotcheroos

    You would think there's no way to improve on a scotcheroo (that peanut-buttery, chocolate-y cousin to Rice Krispies treats). But then we added Fritos.

  • Curried Cauliflower Soup

    Curried Cauliflower Soup

    Let your imagination roam to India when it comes to toppers for this mildly spicy soup: toasted unsweetened coconut, coarsely chopped cashews, a dollop of yogurt and warm naan bread for dipping. The recipe comes from La Soupe, a nonprofit cafe in Cincinnati.

  • Golden Milk Latte

    Golden Milk Latte

    Whip up this trendy and good-for-you coffeehouse drink at home with a few pantry spices. Turmeric has been shown to have anti-inflammatory health benefits, and this sunny alternative to tea or coffee is a great way to eat more of it.

  • Power Green Soup

    Power Green Soup

    One of the most popular menu items at La Soupe in Cincinnati, this cleansing blend is flavored with garlic, ginger and horseradish, and is loaded with nearly 2 pounds of spinach, collards, kale and mustard greens. Try it with a squeeze of lemon.
