Soups & Sweet Treat 3.20.14

Thursday is the official first day of Spring and soup will REALLY officially be BACK!  Sorry about the snow day last week.   What a storm!  Snow, wind, cold, blue skies…I actually started to enjoy winter again.  On Thursday the snow can melt and the crocus can come up.  Time to start seeds and hope that words such as blizzard & artic blast no longer appear in the weather forecast!

I was going to simply re-post the soups from last week- then realized that by Thursday some of you maybe done with cabbage and all things St. Patrick’s- so I am offering different soups.

Happy Spring!

Spinach & Crispy Onions….caramelized onions add a wonderful depth of flavor & spinach adds a splash of green.  Ingredients:  onions, olive oil, kosher salt, ginger, garlic, cumin, bay leaf, veggie stock, brown basmati rice, red lentils, spinach, kosher salt & pepper.  Garnished w. mint & lime.  13. per quart served w. bread  Vegetarian, Vegan & Gluten-Free
