What are your favorite, easy, and dairy free recipes. If it uses milk I can use soy milk, butter I can use, sour cream I can use, but I can't do things like condensed milk. TIA

Are you looking for specific types of soup? I just made veggie beef soup yesterday. It's probably my favorite! I cook a meaty soup bone and some stew meat for a few hours in a few quarts of water, strain the broth and pick the meat off the bone. Add whatever veggies sound good; I generally use green beans, corn, peas, lima beans, okra, cabbage, carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. Then I let it cook for another hour or so on low till everything is tender and serve with a nice crunchy, crusty whole grain or sourdough bread.

good question. I am looking for recipes that have protein of some sort and veggies. Especially recipes that use veggies I can find in the winter.

I just came on here to post butternut squash, too! It is SO simple and delicious! I put some pumpkin pie spice in mine (nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.) and it was SO delicious. You can even put pasta in it.

Soups are so forgiving which is why I enjoy cooking them so much. You can pretty much just throw whatever you have on hand in a pot with some protein and broth and tah-dah...soup.

Some of my favorite soups we've made are Chicken White Bean Chili, Cannellini Bean and Shrimp Stew, and Brunswick Stew. All are outstanding!
