Simple Soups


In this video, I’ll share the building blocks and mix-and-match strategies for healthy, hearty, one-pot soups. In addition to showcasing the endless combination of vegetables, herbs, fruits, and proteins that can go into your soups and teaching you how to think about and organize these various categories, I will guide you through the following:

  • reveal how to make your soups thicker, by adding ingredients like homemade nut milks and fresh blended potatoes
  • share tips on giving your soup an extra kick, by adding ingredients like pears and lemongrass
  • help you discover savory and sweet spice combinations that make your nose and mouth sing in delight
  • share how you can use soup as medicine for reversing the basic cold or flu – by adding fresh herbs and spices like garlic and turmeric


Following some reminders about injecting art and fun into your process, I will create an improvisational one-pot soup before your very eyes, while spontaneously dancing to original music from my band, Iraqis in Pajamas!
