“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”  ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

There’s a quaint little health food store in Tofino, British Columbia.

It’s one of those places that feels comfortable right away, with the incredible aroma that health food stores have…but with a twist.

The store, Green Soul Organics, also hosts Earth Mama Love—a vegan kitchen that serves up delicious meals and snacks, and keeps the town-folk and all manner of tourists healthy.

A co-operative, Earth Mama Love is a genuine connection with the best of what organic, vegan food has to offer. As it happens, my first-born is one of the happy kitchen creatives, and recently she shared this recipe for Green Goddess Soup.

It may be the most delicious soup I have ever tasted. I am a lover of soup, being Eastern European and raised on a variety of nourishing recipes, and this one is addictive.

Easy to prepare, high in immune-boosting ingredients and wildly fragrant, Green Goddess Soup will soon become a favorite recipe to warm up on during winter months.
