Soups & Sweet Treat 1.3.19

Happy New Year!  Phew. I always look forward to the craziness of the holiday season- AND- I always breathe a sigh of relief on New Year’s Day. I’m a person that likes her routine. Waking up on New Year’s Day I feel hopeful, energized, and appreciative of the things that make my life mine. Cheers to all of you on this first day of the new year. Good luck with any resolutions you have made – but most importantly be kind to yourself and others. 2019 needs kindness!

Black-Eyed Pea & Kale Chili… for those of you that didn’t eat your black-eyed peas today, eat them Thursday!  They are suppose to bring luck in the new year, which is something we could all use. This chili is a perfect winters day soup…smoky, earthy, filling and good for the body and soul!  Ingredients: bacon, onions, celery, garlic, diced tomatoes, black-eyed peas, chipotle in adobe, cumin, coriander, dijoun mustard, shredded kale, kosher salt and pepper. Garnished w. Grated jack cheese. gluten-free. 13. Per quart served w. Bread

Carrot Soup w. Tahini & Crisped Chickpeas… this sounds like the kind of soup you should eat during the first week of the new year. It tastes like something so much more!  I’m not a big fan of cooked carrots (unless they are drizzled w. Olive oil, sprinkled with salt and roasted in a VERY hot oven ). Anyhow…this simple soup, thanks to its creamy texture and wonderful toppings , may change your mind towards cooked carrots!  Ingredients: olive oil, carrots, onions, garlic, coriander, cumin, kosher salt, Aleppo pepper, veggie broth.  Crisped Chickpea Garnish: chickpeas, olive oil, cumin, kosher salt. Also garnished w. Lemon-tahini sauce and a sprinkle of parsley. Vegetarian, Vegan & Gluten-free. 13. Per quart served w. Bread. 

Sweet Treat: simple, old fashioned chocolate chip cookies!  1. Each
