Soupline: Home Edition

A benefit for Housing Matters, in lieu of the April 16 live event

Where: At home; When: Right now

We’re here with a heaping spoonful of all the fixins for a fun night at home. Turn up the beats, learn some new kitchen skills, and try out a new recipe or three.

 

Soupline Spotify Playlist

Listen now to the free SouplineHome Edition Spotify playlist. It’s full of food-themed jams, a few tracks by the local Soupline performers, and a couple of songs about home. Turn up the volume and get ready for some quality time movin’ and groovin’ in the kitchen.

(The Joint Chiefs, one of this year’s bands, aren’t on Spotify, but you can listen to them here!)

 

Soup Recipes

We haven’t yet figured out how to deliver soup via the internet yet, so we hope these snazzy soup recipes will warm your heart and your belly.

Feeling ambitious? Make Shadowbrook’s famous creamy artichoke soup! It’s a favorite at Soupline every year.

Spring in a bowl, this soup is full of character. You might even have most of these ingredients on hand already.

Seven-can Soup
