Recipe: Curried Apple Soup

**I’m just getting over a cold and soup is the only thing I crave to eat right now.**

Hope you enjoy this encore post for one of my fav autumn soups.

Fall is a great time of year for all kinds of apple recipes and this soup is a bit different, with the addition of curry. 

Now I’m off to take a nap. I don’t “do sick” often or well. :<(

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

 

One of the many pleasures of fall are the beautiful ‘fresh from the orchard’ apples that are now available. Of course they don’t last long before starting to lose their crisp and delicious texture so must be used up fairly quickly.

 In addition to making apple: pies, butters, crisps and good old baked; this is one of my favorite ways to use up some of the abundant fall crop. Tangy colorful and something a bit different for supper or lunch. Hope you will enjoy this luscious soup soon.

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

I’ve been making a variety of favorite soup recipes lately. It’s great to get back to cooking after the long, hot summer.

 I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I am NOT a hot weather person.

I thought I’d share a collection of some of my favorite soups today. 

 I’ve included photos and links back to the original posts that include the recipes and readers comments.

Brrrr…Soup Weather Has Returned!

slow cooker soup 007

I don’t know about where you are, but here in Interior BC it’s COLD again! 😦

It was down to 1C late afternoon yesterday. For here, at this time of year, that is very cold.

I’m making a lot of soups as we wait out this current weather.

This is one: Slow Cooker Red Lentil, Chickpea and Coconut Soup,  that I found over at the Kitchen Treaty blog. It’s nice and hearty. Full of healthy and delish ingredients and made in the slow-cooker. Can’t get much better than that.

Click through for the full recipe and to see another photo of this soup.

My photo above  is an “action shot”.  Look closely, you can see the steam rising and the soup bubbling. 😉

A few minor changes I made:

-I used 2 T. olive oil instead of butter

– 3 C. of pre-cooked chickpeas instead of canned type. Next time I’d cut back on the chickpeas, 2- 2 1/2 C. would be plenty IMO.

-I cooked soup on HIGH for 4 hours, instead of on LOW as the recipe is written.

Hope you enjoy the recipe, stay warm and let’s hope that SPRING arrives to stay and soon!

PS: How’s your weather and what’s your favorite soup?

Mine is Veggie Beet Borscht (click through for recipe)

It’s Root Veggie Time Again!

I love root veggies of all kinds. Turnips, potatoes, carrots…but most of all I beets!

Last week I made a big batch of my favorite soup (pictured above) Russian Beet Borscht from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians. Along with it, a yummy loaf of  Rye and Fennel Seed bread, a new recipe I just created. I can’t share that one ’cause it’s one I’m including in the new cookbook I’m working on. 😉 Speaking of that project, it’s going great!

 But I can share my recipe for the borscht, if you haven’t tried it already.

See page 2 of this post for the recipe for : Russian Beet Borscht.

What is your favorite root veggie and if you can, do share a recipe link you have for using it!

Happy Cooking! 🙂

Summer’s Bounty Herb and Veggie Soup

It’s finally cooling down here in BC. Yippee!!!

I’m feeling better already! It had been hot for weeks with no rain. Very draining weather. 😦

And with the cooler  temps. I’m getting back into cooking some of my favs again, like yummy soups and homemade breads.

This is one of my favorite late summer soup recipes that incorporates lots of the garden bounty.

I hope you’ll enjoy it soon.

Here’s the link to the recipe and original post with comments.

It really is as yummy as it looks.

And IMO it’s (almost)) always the right time for soup!!! 😉 Not when it’s over 90C though LOL.

Happy Cooking.

PS: How’s your weather?

Cat’s Paw Socks

                                                                             

                                                                                           

Aren’t these purty!!! 😉

I finished these Cat’s Paw socks  (click for pattern page) about a week ago.

 I wear them all the time, they are so warm and cozy and it’s been SO cold in the past few days.

I actually amazed myself that I could knit socks that look as complicated as these do (at least they do to me LOL).

I used to look at sock patterns and completed socks like this at blogs and think to myself: NO WAY! But it wasn’t that hard.

There were a couple of glitches in the pattern though that I made a few changes to. When I’m working with DPN needles, I don’t need any additional challenges. 😉

                          

How’s your weather been? Are you keeping the warm-woollies out too?

Looks like another good day for soup.

I made Sweet Red Pepper and Corn Chowder on Tuesday and Cream of Cauliflower yesterday. All gone, already!

Both recipes from my cookbook:  Not Just for Vegetarians.

Happy Crafting and Cooking ! 🙂

A Soup Recipe “staple” revisited

This is a soup recipe that  I come back to again and again.

 Split Pea Soup has got to be one of the satisfying of all “comfort” foods. For me, a big bowl is usually enough on it’s own, without any add-ons like bread or buns. The Cheddar Muffins (2 posts below) are good with this if you are extra hungry

  I’m including the complete recipe on the next page. Note the comment about using Tofurky Beer Brats in lieu of veggie pepperoni. I’ve also included a link to the review of these Tofurky sausages, from my review blog. These work great in this recipe!

Happy Cooking!
