Soups & Sweet Treat for 2.17.11

The theme of this weeks soup is comfort.  As we enter that time of winter when we start to wonder if it will ever end, our minds and bodies deserve warm, nourishing comfort food!

Chicken Soup is thought to have first been made in Russia where for centuries poultry was the only affordable protein source.  It is now one of the most well-know comfort foods in the world.  Researchers have found that chicken soup has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe sore throats and runny noses.  It is also believed that chicken soup works as a placebo on the body because it is prepared as a comfort food that warms the insides.  Hearty Chicken Soup w/Shells, Tomatoes & Zucchini…ingredients are: olive oil, chicken, onions, bay leaves, carrots, celery, zucchini, chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, baby shells, salt & pepper.  Garnished with freshly grated parmesan cheese & served w/crusty bread.

13. per quart

Potatoes are the world’s number one vegetable.  It is believed that the word potato stems from the corruption of the Indian name for the plant..patata or papa.  The simple Potato has nourished civilizations going as far back on the Incans.  It is thought that they made the first potato soup by drying them in the sun & then reconstituting them to make a thick and nutritious soup. Creamy Potato Soup w/ Homemade Croutons…ingredients are: olive oil, butter, onions, garlic, local russet potatoes, vegetable stock, bay leaves, local low-fat milk, a tiny touch of light cream & and a tiny touch of local cheddar cheese.  Served w/croutons and crusty bread.

12. per quart

Sweet Treat: Carrot Cake Cupcakes w/Orange Pineapple Glaze…ingredients: cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, brown sugar, canola oil, carrots & walnuts.  Glaze: pineapple juice, orange juice & confectioners sugar.

2. per cupcake

Note: I will be taking a soupcation the week of 2.21.11 to spend the winter vacation with my children.  A new post & email will go out on 2.25.11 with the soups & sweet treat for 3.3.11!

Soups & Sweet Treat For February 10, 2011

Albondigas Soup…Albondigas are meatballs and known to many as Mexican Soul Food.  While this soup has flourished into a Mexican Cultural favorite its roots date back to the 6th century when Islamic influence dominated Southwestern Europe.  Then in the 13th century the Spaniards conquered the region…from there albondigas made its way to Mexico by way of the conquistadors.  Due to its long history there are numerous variations of this soup.  The ingredients for my favorite version are…Plainfield ground turkey, onion, celery, green pepper, garlic, cumin, eggs, white rice, salt & pepper, olive oil, carrots, tomato, chicken stock, cilantro, and peas.  Served w/ Tortillas.
