Wonton Soup is probably my ultimate comfort food. As far back as I can remember, my Ma-Ma (my Chinese Grandma) used to drive up to Kamloops to visit us every summer. I always looked forward to her annual ritual of folding fresh wontons to stock us up for the winter. I remember sitting at our kitchen table as she showed me her trick to make the folded edges of the dumplings stick.

The halcyon days of salad-loving summer may be long over, but does this mean we are all doomed to gain weight? Salad is a bastion of weight loss diets everywhere, but there is a new weight control food in town - soup!
I've never been a humongous soup fan. Not once did I ever come home from school salivating waiting for my mom to serve up some lip-smacking soup. The idea that soup can still get away with being served as an entree baffles me.
In my books, turkey makes the best stock for soup because it has so much flavour and body. Normally, I suggest making a proper, long, slow-cooked stock or using turkey bones left over from a roast turkey As a shortcut I'm making an express stock by simmering a turkey leg while prepping the rest of the ingredients.
Social Enterprise is defined by Donors Forum as "A nonprofit venture that combines the passion of a social mission with the discipline, innovation, and determination commonly associated with for-profit businesses."

It's soup season! I love me a warm bowl of roast veggie soup in the fall. I have been on the hunt for a low-sodium, MSG-free vegan broth for ages, and have not been satisfied with the flavour, cost, and ingredient list on many products currently out on store shelves. So I decided it was time to improvise. This is tasty as a base for soup, but can also serve as a great flavour base for cooking rice and other grains, and for de-glazing any dish you are sautéing up on the stovetop!
