Anna Thomas’s Vegetarian Epicure cookbooks have sold millions of copies and inspired generations. Now she describes her love affair with the ultimate comfort food. “From my kitchen to yours,” Anna says, “here are the best soups I’ve ever made.” Her wonderfully creative soups make use of fresh, seasonal produce—black bean and squash soup in the fall, smoky eggplant soup in midsummer, seductively perfumed wild mushroom soup for the holidays. From silky puree to rib-sticking chowder, each recipe has room for variation, and nearly all are vegan-friendly.
Love Soup also provides recipes for breads, hummus, pesto, salads, and a few easy desserts—simple additions to any one-pot meal. Throughout, Anna Thomas offers expert advice on shopping, seasoning, tasting, and becoming a cook. With soups that delight and nourish, Anna invites us all into the kitchen, reminding us of the joy and good sense of home cooking.
“Love Soup” by Anna Thomas is a wonder…a must companion for everyone with a vegetable garden, or a kitchen (this means everybody).
-- Margaret Roach, A Way To Garden
Anna Thomas. Anna has a way of making food accessible and comfortable while keeping it ethnically real…Her warmth infuses the food, and her intuitive cooking talent is generous, not at all precious. The result? Anyone can, and will want to, make her recipes easily, happily, and with confidence. This book is great.
