Spicy Dahl and Carrot Soup by Dianne
The idea of a food swap has always been intriguing to me. Last year I even secured some food swap themed URL’s in hopes of starting one locally. While that hasn’t happened yet, on my end, two friends of mine have recently held swaps. The first was a vegan/gluten free food swap at my friend Jen’s house. I came home with many quinoa dishes, a delicious hummus, a black rice, mushroom and lemongrass dish and a walnut sauce. I contributed coconut chocolates. I have no photographic evidence of this event at all or of any of the food I took home!
A few weeks later my friend Dianne held a Soup Swap on National Soup Swap Day. This day I do have photographic evidence of..but of just the soups…I didn’t take pictures of the amazing appetizers Dianne served at her swap.
Chef AJ’s Spicy Red Lentil Chili by Jen
Everyone in attendance brought 4 quarts of soup in four 1 quart containers…mostly mason jars. Since only 4 of us were able to attend we were each able to bring home one of each soup. Lucky us!
I made my Quinoa, White Bean and Vegetable Tomato Soup, I’ll be sharing the recipe for it this week!
Dianne made a Spicy Dahl and Carrot Soup with little baggies of Spiced Pumpkin Seeds.
Jen made Chef AJ’s Spicy Red Lentil Chili with instructions to add scallions, hot sauce, salsa..etc..on top.
Last but not least The Food Duo made a White Bean and Escarole Soup.

My husband and I have since consumed all of the soups and each and every one was fantastic. Its great having friends who know how to cook! I would gladly eat all of these soups again and again.
I’m looking forward to the next food swap I attend!
