Soups & Sweet Treat for 4.7.11

April is here & the weather forecasters played a great joke on us!  I for one am thankful that the “predicted” winter storm was a no-show!  To celebrate the beginning of April and to help usher in the daffodils, tulips, forsythia & magnolias this weeks soups will feature some classic spring ingredients: eggs, local spinach & mint while still making use of some of the winters bounty. 

As an aside I am in the process of trying to become a member of the Vermont Fresh Network so that I can partner with a local farmer or two in order to start offering more local ingredients!  I will keep you posted on the progression.

Here are the soups….

Greek Orzo, Lemon & Chicken Soup…Rich homemade chicken stock infused with lemon juice and zest, fresh spinach & threads of cooked eggs.  An instant spirit lifter!  ingredients: chicken stock (chicken wings & thighs, onions, celery, local carrots, parsley, pay leaves, salt & pepper), orzo, local cage free eggs, lemons, local spinach, poached chicken breasts, salt & pepper.  Garnished with fresh dill and served with bread.

13. per quart

Eggplant, Roasted Red Pepper & Mint Soup: a beautiful creamy coral colored soup with smoky flavors balanced with fresh mint.  Ingredients: eggplant, olive oil, garlic, onions, celery, local carrots, roasted red peppers, veggie stock, tomato juice, optional local light cream, mint leaves, tabasco sauce, dash of Worcestershire sauce, kosher salt & pepper.  Garnished with Toasted pita chips and served with bread.

Gluten-Free, Vegetarian &  can be Vegan if specified.
