Overview

Winner of the James Beard Foundation Book of the Year, Healthy Focus: delicious recipes for vegetarian soups from the author of “the most influential cookbooks in the history of modern vegetarian cuisine” (Chicago Sun-Times).
Anna Thomas’s Vegetarian Epicure cookbooks have sold millions of copies and inspired generations. Now she describes her love affair with the ultimate comfort food. “From my kitchen to yours,” Thomas says, “here are the best soups I’ve ever made.” Her wonderfully creative recipes make use of fresh, seasonal produce—try black bean and squash soup in the fall, smoky eggplant soup in midsummer, or seductively perfumed wild mushroom soup for Christmas. Silky puree or rib-sticking chowder—each recipe has room for variation, and nearly all are vegan-friendly.Love Soup also provides recipes for breads, hummus, pesto, salads, and homey desserts—and simple menus that put soup at the heart of the meal. Throughout, Thomas offers expert advice on shopping, seasoning, tasting, becoming a cook. With soups that delight and nourish, Thomas invites us all into the kitchen, to the most old-fashioned food and the newest, to the joy and good sense of home cooking.

Winner of the 2010 James Beard Foundation Book Award for Healthy Focus

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Anna Thomas's three Vegetarian Epicure cookbooks, two of them 30 years old, have made its German-born author one of vegetarianism's patron saints. This collection of all-new recipes, her first book in more than a decade, confirms what thousands of vegetarian home cooks already know: Anna Thomas is a self-trained chef of extraordinary subtlety and imagination. The 160 Love Soup recipes include not only soups but also breads, dips and spreads, salads, and desserts.
Macheesmo.com
“Every page is a new original soup that I want to try. This is a fantastic book... a great resource.”
Project Foodie
“Anna Thomas is back with her most... inspirational cookbook to date.”
Weight Watchers.com
“Is anything better than soup?... You'll be delighted and inspired by Thomas's collection of 160 recipes.... Each one a bowl of shining good health.”
Margaret Roach - A Way to Garden.com
“Love Soup is a must companion for everyone with a vegetable garden, or a kitchen (this means everybody).”

“Love Soup is a must companion for everyone with a vegetable garden, or a kitchen (this means everybody).”
Grumpy Vegan Blog
“This book will inspire me to make even better soups by just thumbing through the pages and savouring what it has to share.”
Amy Karol - AngryChicken.com
“This book hasn't left my hands in the last 48 hours.... It's better than I had ever hoped for.”
Publishers Weekly

With its title and a kitschy illustrated bright cover with hand-drawn lettering, along with all vegetarian recipes, it's hard not to think the blandly healthy vibe of the 1970s, but Thomas (of the Vegetarian Epicure cookbooks) presents 160 new and enticing recipes that may just charm even a die-hard carnivore. Soups are organized by season and range from hearty selections like rustic leek and potato, and minestrone for a crowd, to lighter summer options including tomato and fennel soup with blood orange and sweet corn. A deconstructed hummus soup, along with pickle soup, make the collection anything but tired. Inspired by a temporary housing move that included a kitchen less than seven feet wide, the author knows what it takes to make a recipe manageable and doesn't skimp on advice when it comes to time- and space-saving tips like freezing, doubling and garnishing. Recipes for breads, dips and spreads, salads and a collection of desserts, as well as sample menus at the start of each chapter, make it easy to plan a full meal. (Sept.)

Library Journal
Thomas (The Vegetarian Epicure) gives cooks 160 reasons to fall in love with soup all over again! Her introduction to each easy-to-follow recipe makes the reader feel like a close friend is recommending the soup. Sixty of the recipes are vegan, and many of the other dishes can be adapted to a vegan diet. Arranged by seasons, soups range from the traditional (Old-Fashioned Split Pea Soup) to the comforting (Corn and Cheese Chowder) to the exotic (Spicy Indonesian Yam and Peanut Soup). Also included are recipes for breads, hummus, salads, and desserts. In addition, Thomas advises readers on shopping, stocking the pantry, and freezing. Highly recommended.

Love Soup is a must companion for everyone with a vegetable garden, or a kitchen (this means everybody).”— Margaret Roach
Mollie Katzen
“Anna Thomas is a visionary, pure and simple. She opened our eyes and enlightened our palates—and a new world of garden-based eating began to unfold for a generation and beyond. In her latest book, Love Soup, Anna is as present as ever—consistent in her passion, skill, and pure delight. This book makes me want to run to my kitchen and get lost in her soups.”
