There's a whole chapter on "green soups" that use those dark leafy greens the nutritionists are always urging us to eat (unsuccessfully in my case). In my first attempt vast quantities of kale and spinach almost overflowed the soup pot, but after being cooked down and pureed with seasonings the greens were transformed into a delicious soup that was creamy without the need for butter or cream. It was so good I made it two weeks in a row.
Next I made the zucchini basil soup which uses a full 2 cups of basil to 2 pounds of zucchini - easy and delicious.
Seriously, in less than a week I have made three of her recipes (Carol's Finnish Pea Soup with Apples, Red Lentil and Squash Soup & Roasted Kabocha Squash and Celery Root Soup) and each one has been a joy to prepare and divine to eat/slurp. Serving sizes are generous so luckily we have lots of leftovers to freeze and enjoy later.
Even if someone is not a vegetarian they would be hard pressed to not be wowed by the delicious flavors and heartiness (particularly regarding the colder weather soups).
I look forward to making my way through all of them, very ambitious I know, as thus far I have yet to read one that does not appeal to me.
Another aspect of this cookbook is the fact that in addition to stating how many, the user is offered the weight. Medium to me may be another size to someone else and I have been off eyeballing it but because a weight is also offered I am saved. My kitchen scale get quite the workout when I prepare one of these recipes.
Thanks Anna for the great tasties!!!
A few months later we joined a CSA for the summer and I found myself baffled by what to do with the swiss chard that arrived with our bi-weekly basket. I tried a couple of chard recipes I found on the internet but kept finding myself being drawn back to "Love Soup". I finally realized that, as long as you already have broth on hand, many of the recipes just involved chopping up 3 or 4 different kinds of vegetables and pitching them into a pot with some herbs -- in other words, no more effort than the veggie soup I've made for years, just with some different vegetables. And, after all, didn't we join a CSA in the first place to try new vegetables?
So, I set off to make the basic light vegetable broth from the book.Read more ›
