Asian Vegetable Soup on Muffin Tin Monday

It's Muffin Tin Monday, and we've been eating a lot of soup lately.
Garlic bread with a silly face, salad (Pierce doesn't like salad, but I keep presenting it as an option with different flavored dressings, in hopes that eventually I'll find one he likes) and my Asian vegetable soup.  So although Pierce likes a lot of veggies, he does not like salad!  Yet. As for the soup, I came up with this recipe a couple of winters ago and have been making it off and on since - it comes together quickly and we all really like the flavors.  If you want to try it out, you can find the recipe here.

Sweet Soup meal!

Only one of my boys like salad. Discovered that when I had made a spinach salad for myself and he ate it all when I got up from the table to go get something else for the boys.

The soup looks good and I love the bowl! Have you ever tried a salad bar (either at a restuarant- we love Salad Works- or at home) with Pierce? My kids have had on again, off again, relationships with salads- However, if they make their own salad they are much more likely to eat it.

Samantha said...

Another recipe to try..we're loving soups right now.

Joy said...

Very cute tins! My little boy will ask for salad, only to lick off the salad dressing ; ) Hoping we out grow that one soon!

That soup recipe looks really, really good! We like tofu, and I know we would love this soup!

Amy liked salad when she was little, and everyone thought it was odd. But her love of salads got us to eat more of them too:)

Slamdunk said...

Clever Lisa. Our youngest is a picky eater, but will eat salads (even at McDonalds). Funny how each kiddo is different.

Deborah Ann said...

Audrey's mom said...

How healthy and yummy looking! My girls are not big salad fans either. I keep putting them out and them Mo asked for one yesterday. She did not eat it but she asked for it. That is a step in the right direction.

That soup looks yummy. Thank you for the recipe.

Sandy said...

My daughter, Madelyn, never liked salad either, but I was persistent and kept offering it. Now at the age of 6, she often requests it for dinner. It took some time, but now she loves it!

Loretta said...

Oh, what a beautiful presentation! Hope the boys ate at least some of it! You are an awesome mom! Hugs

SnoopyGirl said...

Your froggy bowl with soup is so cute!

Crow said...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Cute presentation. My son didn't eat salad until he was an adult and he only like Thousand Island dressing!

Dee said...

Yummy! My kids have been so picky lately but we've been having soup too. :)

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Sweet Virginia Breeze said...

Since the weather has cooled a bit, we've been eating a lot of soup with garlic bread and salad.

Farmchick said...

That frog bowl totally cracked me up!

Angela said...

Cute lunch Lisa! I'm sure he will eventually like salads. My son started wanting to taste my salad when we were eating out. I would give him the crunchier pieces of the romaine lettuce and he loved it with ranch dressing. He's not much on toppings though! lol Maybe put a cucumber on it and that will get him to try it more.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

The soup looks delicious. I will have to check out the recipe. Hope you have a great week, Lisa. :)
