Any other year round soup lovers out there?! This one’s for YOU!

If there was ever a soup to make and love this time of year this creamy dairy free tomato and red pepper soup would be IT.

Tomatoes just don’t get any sweeter than they are right now. And not only are they having an insanely delicious moment in the spotlight, they are also crazy affordable. The same goes for the red peppers. That’s the bonus of eating with the seasons ya’ll! Freaking delicious produce that doesn’t break the bank. Which means a little extra money in your wallet for that bottle of white wine or a fancy chocolate bar.

At least that’s how I justify those little splurge purchases 😉

I am pretty sure Seattle is confused about what season it’s supposed to be (SPRING, SEATTLE. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SPRING!). Because the trees are blooming and the crocuses and daffodils have sprung up from their earthly depths but it was SNOWING last Friday, you guys. SNOWING. Like big wet flakes falling to the ground for at least two hours 🙄 I know we’re not the only one’s but it just makes me wanna say COME ON ALREADY.

(Very ready for sun over here 🙋🏼)

So while at first I thought I might be a little too far past the cold weather season to share this recipe for the best paleo bean free chili, after this recent flash back to winter-like weather that we’ve been having around here I realized that no, it’s definitely not too late. In fact, this chili recipe is probably needed now more than ever. Because if we’re gonna have to deal with snow at the end of March, we might as well be eating delicious paleo bean free chili while we do it!

Creamy Dairy Free Parsnip and Chive Soup {paleo + vegan}

Anyone else feel like they’re still unwinding from the holiday? While I love love love spending time with friends and family and sharing good food, it always takes me awhile to get back into the groove of things afterwards. There are some things that have been helping me get back into the flow – exercise, quiet down time for reading or watching favorite movies (currently mid Harry Potter marathon!), and making easy, nourishing meals like this creamy dairy free parsnip and chive soup.


 
A good soup recipe is at the top of the list of my all time favorite things, and favorite ways to warm up. Especially this time of year when every day IS RAIN and I literally need just as many lights on in my house during the day as I do at night.

Not even exaggerating.

These are the days that I dream of spending the winter in someplace warm and tropical.

But for now…

Creamy parsnip and chive soup + twinkle lights + kitty cuddles = things that are keeping me sane.
