Winter Soup

It’s still winter

We’ve made it past the winter solstice and the days are slowly getting longer. But the weather is definitely cold and damp. And it still gets dark pretty early. On days like that, I think there’s nothing like a nourishing, warming winter soup. Combined with a simple salad and a delicious cheesy biscuit, it makes a perfect dinner at the end of the day. Plus it’s an easy meal that comes together pretty quickly.

For quick and easy cheesy biscuits I use this recipe from Pamela’s and add 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. I get perfect gluten-free biscuits every time.
