Soups & Sweet Treat 3.22.12

The talk on the street is the weather.  It has thrown me for a loop!  Today we will be washing screens & taking off storms so that the house doesn’t implode from the freakish heat.  Instead of making end of the season comfort soups I have been searching my repertoire for SUMMER soups.  Strange.  Thursday will be warm, but the sun will go down, temps will fall into the 40’s and a quart or two of soup & a sweet treat will still taste great!!!

Chilled Curried Carrot Soup…This soup tastes great chilled or heated…your choice.  Ingredients: canola oil, carrots, onion, shallot, garlic, fresh ginger, jalapeno, coriander, curry powder, veggie stock, coconut milk, lime juice, kosher salt, pepper, & fresh cilantro.  Garnished w. toasted Pepita.  13. per quart served w. bread.  Vegan, vegetarian & gluten-free

Corn & Roasted Red Pepper Chowder…The roasted red peppers in this soup are pureed giving the soup a beautiful color and fresh taste.  Ingredients: unsalted butter, olive oil, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, yukon gold potatoes, chicken stock, coriander, bay leaves, corn, whole milk, roasted red peppers, dash of Tabasco, kosher salt, pepper, & fresh cilantro.  Garnished w. tortilla chips.  13. per quart served w. bread.  Gluten-Free

Sweet Treat: Zucchini-Nut-Bread Sandwich Cookies (filled w. a sweet cream cheese filling) 1.50 per cookie

*****Due to warm temps PLEASE leave some form of ice in your container if you will not be home by 4!
