Cold Weather Cuisine: Rustic Potato Soup

If you have ever lived along the Great Lakes, you know the weather forecasts often call for over a foot of snow and temperatures hovering near zero for weeks at a time. Warm and comforting meals are always on the menu during these cold months, which seem to last from October to April. There was a popular mom-and-pop restaurant where I lived (it is now, sadly, closed) which served a simple lunch of soup and bread on weekdays and it was packed in the winter. Fresh-from-the oven loaves of Italian bread were there for you to slice, and soups ranged… Read more

Butternut squash soup | Wolf Gourmet

A Soup for the Season

Soup season is year-round for us. Mason jars of soup show up in the office fridge on a regular basis, and there is an occasional line for the microwave around noon. We swap soup recipes regularly and experiment with new flavors on the weekends. Bring us a loaf of crusty bread, and we’re set. Some would say we are soup obsessed, and it may be true. When you can blend and pour a hot soup in six minutes, the possibilities seem endless. Using sautéed or roasted vegetables expands the flavor profiles even further. Cooler evenings and the arrival of fall… Read more

fennel soup | Wolf Gourmet

Expand Your Soup Repertoire

It’s good to have a few soup recipes you can call on again and again for an easy meal. We think it’s time to change up your soup routine with something a little different. Fennel. Not familiar with fennel? I wasn’t either until a few years ago. In season from mid-fall to early spring, it’s most often associated with Italian cuisine. My first foray into cooking with it involved a very dull knife, a giant fennel bulb, and an extremely large bunch of Swiss chard. The dish involved some serious knife work, but after one bite of this sweet aromatic,… Read more

Extend your summer nights with soup

As the lazy days of summer begin to wind down, we want to maximize our time spent enjoying it. Spending less time in the kitchen means more time for outdoor pursuits, or perhaps relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine watching the sun dip below the horizon. However you spend your summer evenings, a quick meal can get you where you want to be in no time. Sure, you could get takeout on the way home. But what if you could make something in the time it takes to stop at the local deli? Our culinary team came… Read more

Wolf Gourmet pea soup

Capturing the Season’s Flavor: Spring Pea Soup with Mint Oil

The season for fresh peas is short, as they are only grown and harvested in spring when the weather is cool. If you want to capitalize on the fleeting period for fresh peas, seek them out at your local market now. We combine the grassy freshness of fresh peas with aromatics and fresh mint to create a soup capturing the taste of spring. You’ll need about two pounds of fresh peas for this recipe. To shell them, snap off the stem end of the pod, and pull the string along the inner seam of the pod. Press the seam of… Read more

A Bright, Curried Cauliflower Soup

Using a blender to prepare soup is a time saver, even when you want to make something special. This soup sounds like a lot of work, but it isn’t. You could even roast the cauliflower the night before and prepare the soup in mere minutes the next day. Roasting cauliflower intensifies its sweetness, and coating the cauliflower with an Asian-inspired yogurt curry glaze before roasting turns a sometimes lackluster vegetable into a bright and creamy soup base. The Wolf Gourmet countertop oven is the right size to roast a whole head of cauliflower on a 10×15 pan. Once the roasting… Read more

Corn Soup

Corn Soup with Chile Cream

Preparing soup from scratch can be a time consuming endeavor of chopping, stirring and simmering. But making soup in a blender lets you serve dinner quickly, so you have more time to enjoy conversation around the kitchen table. The Wolf Gourmet blender takes room temperature ingredients and turns them into steaming-hot soup in less than six minutes. This recipe features roasted corn and spicy cream. The soup’s velvety texture accented by the creamy, chipotle topping is unbeatable. You could also grill the corn to add an additional depth of flavor. Or, prepare the chili cream and roast the corn ahead… Read more

Pumpkin Soup plated

Curried Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin soup prepared with a hint of curry and the richness of half and half is a satisfying meal for a cool fall evening. Add the ingredients, turn to the SOUP setting and the blender does the rest of the work for you. In less than six minutes you will have a ridiculously creamy soup heated to the perfect serving temperature. Pair it with crusty bread or a crisp pumpernickel panini with roasted turkey and Gruyere. Canned pumpkin is best to use, as fresh pumpkin varies widely in flavor and moisture content. Garnishing the soup is optional; toasted pepitas add… Read more

Thai Carrot Soup in the Wolf Gourmet Blender

Confidence in Every Step: Thai Carrot Soup

Inspired by the Thai soup tom kha gai, this vibrant orange soup is stunning (especially in a white bowl), and has a combination of sweetness and spice ideal for lunch or a light dinner. Coconut milk adds rich creaminess and also keeps this soup dairy-free. Cutting the carrots into large pieces is fine – the Wolf Gourmet blender can make quick work of the ingredients without any unnecessary effort on your part. Once the prep is complete, fill the blender and select the soup cycle. The high speed of the blades is enough to create friction to heat ingredients as the blending takes place…. Read more
