How I LOVE Beets, Let Me Count the Ways! ;-)

borscht

beets sooooo much! 😉

I think beets are one of the most underrated vegetables in terms of versatility and taste.

Not to mention their health benefits, which are significant too and  in a number of ways. It’s not just vitamin C that you’re getting in a serving of beets! You can read about some of the many nutritional pluses of eating beets and beet greens here. 

Tonight I’m making a beet pesto with pasta recipe for the first time. Sounds and looks so yummy. It’s a recipe that I found recently in Alive MagazineI also make a variety of beet salads on a regular basis and of course, my fav soup of all time:

Veggie Beet Borscht (click for the recipe).

Do you like beets and what’s your fav recipe to make with them?

Happy Cooking! :)

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?

Meal-in-a-Bowl Cabbage Soup

                                                                                                                          

I was browsing through some “old” photos over at my Flickr account the other day and came across this one for Meal-in-a-Bowl Cabbage Soup from Not Just for Vegetarians.

With winter almost getting ready to bid us “farewell” (fingers-crossed) I still think there are quite a few perfect “soup days” to come. 

I think every day is a good soup day actually LOL.  I   all kinds of soups and in the spring summer, winter and fall! . 😉

                                        

This is a very filling and flavorful, “chunky-style” vegetable soup. If you like cabbage, you’re going to love this soup.

When I make this recipe, I don’t bother with side dishes or add-ons. Maybe a slice of bread but nothing else.

Makes a generous batch too. I hope you enjoy it soon. 🙂

See page 2 for complete recipe.

Happy Cooking 🙂
