A Very Green Soup

Sometimes I have so many greens in my fridge I don’t know what to do with them – so I make soup. You can vary the vegetables you use in this recipe.

In this case I combined broccoli with spinach and arugula and it was really yummy!

Peter’s Hot Pepper Preserve

My awesome organic CSA farmer Peter Paniccia of Pietro’s Coop comes bearing baskets full of wonderful produce. One of my very favorites is his hot peppers.

I just love the vibrant kick these peppers add to pretty much every dish I make. Here is a recipe where I actually manage to preserve these hot peppers so they will last me through the winter months. I use a spoonful of this is so many dishes from pastas, to sandwiches or in dips and so on.

Romanesco Salad Recipe

Romanesco is that strange looking alien broccoli veggie that shows up from time to time in either in my organic CSA box or in the aisles of the super market. Romanesco is actually an Italian vegetable and can be cooked in a number of ways.

I tried a really easy salad recipe and ended up loving it.

Yummy Mushroom Soup

What is more comforting and yummy than a bowl of earthy mushroom soup? This is an easy recipe where I really cut back on the heaviness of cream. I always put a little bit of dried wild mushrooms to my soup as it adds to the depth of flavor.

One of my favorite meals especially when the weather is chilly outside is a warm bowl of mushroom soup with avocado toast.

Parsley Pesto

I am so spoiled by my favorite organic CSA farmer Peter Paniccia of Pietro’s Coop who brings me bushels of parsley every summer and fall. I use a lot of this parsley fresh in my everyday cooking but I also make a great pesto with it, which last me through the winter months.

The pesto is really easy to make and keeps really well in the fridge for months on end. I use it in everything from pastas, soups, sandwiches, sauces and so much more.
