Soups & Sweet Treat For February 10, 2011

Albondigas Soup…Albondigas are meatballs & known to many as “Mexican Soul Food”.  While Albondigas soup is often considered Mexican food, history dates it to the sixth century where Islamic influence dominated the region of Southwestern Europe….then in the 13th century Spain conquered the region.  From there, albondigas made its way to Mexico by way of the conquistadors and has since flourished into a cultural favorite.  Due to its long history there are numerous versions of this soup.  The ingredients for my favorite 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.  13. per quart

I have been waiting to do a Beet soup to go with the name of my business!  This week in honor of the upcoming holiday of glitter and glue (Valentine’s day) the vegetarian soup will be a Roasted Beet borscht.  While not a classic “borscht” it is still delicious and will turn a lovely shade of pink when a bit of sour cream is swirled in.  Ingredients…local beets, salt & pepper, fresh thyme, olive oil, onion, carrot, garlic, vegetable stock, red wine vinegar, dill, honey.  Garnished with grated granny smith apple, fresh dill and local reduced fat sour cream.  Served w/multigrain bread. 12. per quart

Sweet Treat…Coffee Crunch Bars…a crunchy desert with yummy coffee and toffee flavors.  ingredients…flour, baking powder, salt, butter, dark brown sugar, instant espresso powder, almond extract, semisweet chocolate chips, sliced almonds.
