I wanted hearty and filling mushroom soup, so into the pot went some wild rice and white beans!

Cilantro-Ginger Veggie Dumplings – Leftovers Edition

So, are you wondering what else you can do with your leftover veggie dumplings (perhaps after you made my Cilantro-Ginger Veggie Dumplings this week)? I highly recommend slurping them up in a bowl of miso soup! I’ve done this before, but with store-bought dumplings in my Miso Soup with Veggie Dumplings. And I can tell […]

Delhi, India: Past & Progress

The last stop on our whirlwind tour through India was the city of Delhi. Delhi was recently modernized for the 2010 Commonwealth Games — the city developed new transit, cleaned up the roads, and did tons of building. The taxis are known as “Tuk-Tuks”, and they are powered by Clean Natural Gas (CNG): It was […]

Red Kari Squash and Split Pea Soup with Sinful Onions

One of my favourite new traditions, is to start the new year with a bowl of lentil & pumpkin soup.  It’s a tradition from Nigel Slater that I borrowed from his hunger-inspiring account of what he cooked and ate in a year, The Kitchen Diaries. This year, I had on hand a red kari squash […]

We’ve had this soup as […]

Roasted Golden Beet Borscht with Collard Greens

My Mum and I decided to have a movie night: Doctor Zhivago and dinner.  I immediately thought of borscht, and that we needed a Russian-inspired dinner.  Instead of authentic Russian food, I used Russian flavours to make a meal of our own. Golden beets.  So pretty, I love the colour — and they’re great on […]

Cream of Parsnip and Carrot Soup with Maple

The parsnip and carrot combination has been calling to me lately (and I keep getting them in my veggie box delivery), so I thought I’d revisit my Roasted Parsnip and Carrot Soup.  I wanted to see what happened to the flavours if I made a quicker soup, where I didn’t roast the root veggies. The […]
