What is the Feel Good Foodie Cooking Challenge?

This Cooking Challenge is a fun way for us to join together and cook or bake the recipe of the month!

How does it work?

We’ll announce the Cooking Challenge at the start of the month on all social channels and in our Facebook Group. You will have until the last few days of the month to make the recipe and leave a rating and a comment on feelgoodfoodie.net. At the end of the month, we’ll share photos of some of your creations and announce a winner of a grand prize gift of a $100 gift card to Amazon.

How do I enter the challenge?

To enter the challenge, it’s required that you leave a rating and comment on the recipe card. You can also share photos of your creations on Instagram Stories using #feelgoodfoodie and tagging @feelgoodfoodie or in our Facebook group (optional).

  1. Hi! I want to try this recipe this week! Question I have is “most” recipes call for full fat cream and your recipe uses Greek yogurt. Have you tried cream vs. yogurt? Just wondering which would taste better and also be just as creamy. I prefer using the yogurt, just wondering if there is a flavor difference. Thanking you in advance for helping me! Michelle

    1. I can’t wait for you to try the recipe! I haven’t tried cream in this recipe because I wanted to put a healthier twist on it, but it should work!

        1. Yumna!!! This was ABSOLUTELY the best soup I have EVER made and I’m from south Louisiana where all food is good!!!! I didn’t change any part of the recipe and it was superb. You could sell this in a restaurant! Many thanks! Michelle.

  2. I really enjoyed this easy soup. I ended up blending this in a blender because my immersion blender was not getting it as smooth as I wanted. I used sour cream rather than yogurt which worked well and I might try a little heavy cream next time with some that I have in the freezer. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper.

  3. Made this today for lunch and for some guests. Didn’t use crushed red pepper flakes as I didn’t want them to think it was too spicy. Also didn’t use the Greek yogurt at the end because I know some don’t like the flavor. And I LOVED it! Great flavor and so easy! Had more for dinner tonight and I added some Gouda once I reheated and YUM!!!! Nice little salty bite in there 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  4. Delicious soup! I was planning on roasting the red papers myself, but ended up using ones from a jar because I didn’t have much time. I must say this was delicious and really quick to make. I used 3 carrots instead of 2 (I had to use them so they wouldn’t go bad), also topped with some sunflower seeds that really helped giving it a little crunch.
