Rutabaga, Celery, Dill, & Smoked Chicken Soup

Rutabaga, Celery, Dill, & Smoked Chicken Soup

Spring may be on its way, but it’s not here yet. It was snowing in Brooklyn today! Plenty of time left to hunker down with winter vegetable based soups while shivering our way through March. (I’m on this big kick now where I make a pot of soup every weekend to eat for breakfast for […]

East African Sweet Pea Soup

East African Sweet Pea Soup

East African Sweet Pea Soup (adapted from Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant: Ethnic and Regional Recipes from the Cooks at the Legendary Restaurant by the Moosewood Collective) Hurry, hurry, you have to make this soup! I took a Hipstamatic photo just so I could post it for you all the sooner! I adapted this from one […]

Jerk Chicken and Jerk Corn Chowder

Jerk Chicken and Jerk Corn Chowder

I’m feeling very justified in my lifelong Depression-era housewife mentality lately, I must say. Times are rough for everyone, and it feels like they’re just getting worse. Good thing I’ve been doing home canning and jam-making for years, not to mention saving bacon grease in a can in my freezer and freezing chicken carcasses every […]

Ramp Udon Soup with Bacon Consommé and Asparagus Tempura

Ramp Udon Soup with Bacon Consommé and Asparagus Tempura

Everyone knows that ramps and bacon go well together. Everyone who knows about ramps, that is – and if you don’t, get down to the Union Square greenmarket or the Park Slope Food Co-op (if you live in NYC) or wherever your local source may be sometime in the next week or so before they […]

Parsnip Mint Soup

Parsnip Mint Soup

There’s something about temperature contrasts that really works for me, so I love the hot soup and cold salsa here with every bite. The salsa is also pretty key for me because when it come down to it, I just don’t like smooth soups without any texture to them. The greenmarkets are full of these […]

Goose Stew

Goose Stew

This is another recipe adapted from A Drizzle of Honey: The Life and Recipes of Spain’s Secret Jews by David M. Gitlitz and Linda Kay Davidson, a cookbook full of recipes for foods cooked and eaten by Jews and conversos in the Iberian Peninsula during the time of the Inquisition. About a year and a […]

Red Bean and Walnut Soup

Red Bean and Walnut Soup

This soup is of Georgian origin, where pairing red beans and walnuts appears to be some sort of national pastime. It sure beats baseball. This is a rustic soup, lusciously creamy and actually good for you, too. (Unless you overload on the olive oil, that is. Since I don’t specify quantities there, on your own […]

Sunchoke Fish Chowder

Sunchoke Fish Chowder

Yes, that’s bacon sprinkled on top of an Arabic spiced New England fish chowder pictured in front of my tallis bag, which features a beautiful watercolor painting of Jerusalem. Sacrelicious, maybe, but it all makes sense – this chowder is made with Jerusalem artichokes instead of potatoes, after all. Sunchokes (a/k/a Jerusalem artichokes) are subtly […]

Hungarian Sausage, Baby Bok Choy, and Sweet Potato Soup

Hungarian Sausage, Baby Bok Choy, and Sweet Potato Soup

My grandmother has congestive heart failure, which means that she is restricted to a low-salt diet. When she gets sick in the winter this goes straight out the window, because she tends to order in salty soup from the local take-out Chinese food place on the corner. I try to stave this off by delivering […]

Sweet Potato, Chestnut, and Bacon Soup

Sweet Potato, Chestnut, and Bacon Soup

This is meant as a direct response to the question – what do you do when you come across a monstrously large sweet potato that stares you in the face and demands to be bested? You puree the sucker into soup, that’s what.

Turkish Red Lentil Soup with Urfa-Biber Mint Sizzle

Turkish Red Lentil Soup with Urfa-Biber Mint Sizzle

I know, I know, I am posting too many recipes which call for urfa-biber lately. I am almost at the point where I will have to offer to mail a package of urfa-biber to anyone who wants it and has something interesting to swap for it. This recipe was adapted from Paula Wolfert’s The Slow […]

Leek and Oyster Chowder

Leek and Oyster Chowder

As I’ve mentioned before, I love chowder. What you may not know is that I also love oysters. (In fact, I love all seafood, except perhaps jellyfish and sea cucumbers.) This leek and oyster chowder is scrumptious as only a simple dish can be. The broth is creamy and flavorful, and the oysters themselves are […]

Chicken and Rice, Curry Banana, Roots and Rhizomes Stew

Chicken and Rice, Curry Banana, Roots and Rhizomes Stew

Soup’s On! February is soup month, according to Alanna of A Veggie Venture, and this is my contribution. This stew was mostly a stone soup, but it also turned into an excuse to try out my new curry powder, Two Knives Special Curry Blend from Auntie Arwen’s Spice Blends. It’s a fairly mild curry, but […]

Persian Pomegranate Soup (Ash-e Anar)

Persian Pomegranate Soup (Ash-e Anar)

Tami of Running With Tweezers set a Super Souper Challenge this month, asking everyone to share their favorite soup recipes. This is the first time I’ve made this soup, but it may become one of my favorites from now on. It’s adapted from a recipe I’ve had bookmarked for a while now in A Taste […]

Sichuan Shrimp Chowder

Sichuan Shrimp Chowder

This is my entry for The Spice is Right VIII: Frankenstein’s Monster, where we are creating culinary mash-ups using spices from one cuisine in recipes or with techniques from another. Here, I have used Sichuan peppercorns to add a tingle to a bowl of classically American shrimp chowder. The deadline to post your entries is […]

Crypto-Jewish Brazilian Yellow Stew

Crypto-Jewish Brazilian Yellow Stew

I have the most amazing new cookbook – A Drizzle of Honey: The Life and Recipes of Spain’s Secret Jews, by David M. Gitlitz and Linda Kay Davidson. It is full of recipes for foods cooked and eaten by Jews and conversos in the Iberian Peninsula during the time of Inquisition. To my great delight, […]
