SOUP…so hot (literally) right now. We wanted to debut our new cookbook Soupology by Drew Smith, and thought of no one better to introduce and recipe test then our very own Grace Olson, self proclaimed #soupgal and our Senior Account Executive at BOXFOX!
Grace reviewed these fun soup selections, and decided her inaugural recipe to try would be the Wild Garlic, Mint, and Zucchini Soup. She found it to be very simple and easy to create, as well as light, bright, and refreshing! Anchored by the Potassium Broth you learn to make in the cookbook, all you need is onion, olive oil, garlic, and zucchini to make the soup, as well as yogurt and fresh mint to garnish. (Extra points if you have a pressure cooker to make the base broth - it is an efficient way to make your own broths, which is a flavor game changer! It’s super easy to save your scraps of carrot, onion, and celery to create, as well as adding chicken or beef bones for a delicious bone broth.) For this recipe, Grace also recommends seasoning with oregano and thyme along with your salt and pepper to enhance the flavor. It’s great for sipping and is great for a late afternoon pick me up!
Known for introducing Soup Swap at BOXFOX back in 2017 when our entire company was around 10 employees, Grace has always loved soup! Her passion for cooking and nourishing her body with healthy, filling recipes lead her to the efficient and hearty ritual of making soups on Fall and Winter Sundays to sustain her for the week. And now that soup is ~trendy~ (queue Adam Driver muttering “good soup” on TikTok), Grace hosts soup parties with her friends as an easy way to get together, share a meal, and stay connected through these next few months of the pandemic. Because what could be better than pouring vino, breaking bread, dunking it in a rich, homemade soup, and catching up with close friends?
