The votes are in and the winner of the March edition of No Croutons Required is Helen of Food Stories who made this incredible Smoky, Sweet & Spicy Red Pepper Soup with Feta and Mint. I can't wait to try this one. Congratulations Helen! This is certainly one fine looking soup.
I will be hosting the April edition of No Croutons Required, a monthly vegetarian soup and salad challenge started by Holler of Tinned Tomatoes and myself. The first two themes have centered around soups. In anticipation of Spring, this month we would like participants to submit a soup or a salad or anything in between featuring mushrooms of any variety. Regular readers of our respective blogs will know that Holler and I can never eat enough mushrooms. Though mushrooms are probably the meatiest of vegetarian fare, we do ask that you stick to the vegetarian theme, meaning no meat, poultry or seafood. We are excited to see what everyone will come up with this month and look forward to some new mushroom dishes to grace our tables. Entries are due by April 20th. For a recap of the submission guidelines, please go here.
