Today is the last day of the photoshoot for my second cookbook, #InspiralizeEverything!
I’ve been commuting into the city for the past 6 days (today is day 7) to watch the magic happen that is food photography.
Seriously, I’ve never been more impressed by photography teams in my life! There’s a prop stylist, two food stylists, and of course, a photographer and his assistant. It takes an army to make a book, that’s for sure!
I love the photos SO much, they’re exactly what I had imagined – even better! They really brought my recipes to life – and even helped me make small tweaks to better the recipes.
However, I’m looking forward to normalcy – working out of my apartment, getting work done (ha!), and planning all of the exciting things I have planned for this spring. I’m coming at you with more videos, by the way – I haven’t had a moment to film one!
So on to today’s recipe: I brought this carrot noodle soup to my sister in law’s to have during Superbowl Sunday, and she loved it! Her exact words: “I don’t know how it’s possible, but this soup tastes really hearty.” I’ll take that as a compliment!
I think it’s because of the carrot noodles – when they cook in the broth, they fluff up like whole wheat pasta does and create the perfect, robust consistency to carry the rich flavors of the sausage, cheese, and broth. Plus, kale always thickens things up!
If you don’t eat meat or want a lighter option other than sausage, try stirring in some quinoa or adding in some shredded chicken.
This soup also saves well, so make the full recipe and have leftovers for lunch!
