I wanted to share my friend Lillie’s recipes (I totally don’t “know” her, but I love her because she has the best recipes ever).  She has a blog, but I follow her mostly on Instagram because she has so many good ideas.

And since we’re winding down winter over here, I’m sharing a couple of her soups that I’ve made lately…

I love looking at stuff like this:

(and feeling all healthy that there are all those veggies in there)…that turns into this:

(Recipe for that chili)

She’s good at helping me use my Instant pot too…all that stuff up there goes into here:

 …with a few more things added:

 …and after the cooking but before the cauliflower:

 You get the idea.

And if you pair any of those soups with this from Trader Joes:

Then you’ve got yourself a pretty great meal.  (We use half applesauce to replace half of the oil and it’s better for you and still so so good…our family favorite for sure.)  Yes, still not the best side dish as far as healthy goes, but when you have all those veggies packed into your soup it makes it totally ok:)

Lillie has lots of other recipes I love as well, but for today, just sharing the soups.

Happy Thursday!
