Cauliflower-Leek Soup with Crispy Shrimp(AIP, Paleo)

For those of you who plan ahead, this is a soup for after the celebrating, when the July 4th ribs and potato salad and pie have been gleefully devoured and left you ready for something lighter. Encourage the pendulum swing back to fresh with restorative rich broth and garden-fresh vegetables, whirred in a blender to…

Chicken Broth

Chicken Broth | Fresh Tart

Here, in this jar, is the pure gold otherwise known as chicken broth. Utterly delicious yes, but equally as important – soothing. Healing. Not just to my soul, but to my sometimes bitchy digestive system. When I accidentally eat gluten, or hit a non-gluten grain too hard, I had might as well pull out my…

Ham, Bean & Sauerkraut Soup | Fresh Tart

It’s hard to beat the rib-stickin’ comfort of a bowl of ham & bean soup. I prefer it brothier than the version I grew up eating, and like many soups, it’s made even better with the tang of sauerkraut.In fact, sauerkraut’s salty acidity elevates many savory dishes, far beyond the typical brats-n-beer pairing (which is,…

Smoky Sausage Soup with Kale & Chickpeas | Fresh Tart

I realize, typing this, that I’m hitting you with two soup/stew recipes in a row. Oops! Well, ’tis the season, right? The combination of cool nights and piles of gorgeous harvest apparently makes me want to stew everything in sight. (In fact, I sort of do that, in batches as I go, a way of…

Green Gazpacho with Fried Shrimp: Tomato Party Part I

Green Gazpacho with Fried Shrimp

As pretty as green gazpacho is – a tangy twist on the usual – what I enjoy most about this dish is the fried shrimp WITH the gazpacho. With any gazpacho! I ordered the two together in a Palm Beach restaurant years ago – a smooth, creamy gazpacho with a side of hot, crispy little…

Avgolemono Soup | Fresh Tart

You might not think of making a pot of chicken broth on a warm summer day, but I suggest it anyhow. There are just so many fast, flavorful meals that spin out of one simple stockpot, for several days into the week, that it’s the perfect summer Sunday move. Plop a chicken in a pot,…

Asparagus is of course one of spring’s best treats. Whether steamed, roasted, or sauteed, everyone adores asparagus snuggled up to eggs or salty ham or even better, both! But my personal favorite is butttery asparagus, especially showered with toasted nuts. This soup puts a good amount of asparagus to creamy use, with brown butter and…

Chickpea Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 4, 2012 at 12:07pm

Braise a pot of beans one day, eat well for the next several. It’s the laziest, most delicious way to fill a week with food that I can imagine. Day 1 eat a bowlful of beans, on their own or alongside a roast or spooned over rice. Day 2 fry some beans until crispy and…

Roasted Tomato Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2012 at 4:54pm

Despite our first frost, there are still plenty of tomatoes kicking around! Make a double batch of this easy soup and freeze it for a mid-winter’s treat. Or eat it all hot from the pot, which is a good plan too. I make this soup all season long by roasting tomatoes as I pick them,…

Fall Soups: Twin Cities Live

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2012 at 8:39pm

I had a blast chatting fall soups on Twin Cities Live this week! I specifically talked about Coconut Curry Sweet Corn Soup, but also brought along Pozole (pork braised with chiles and hominy) and a Chicken Vegetable Soup that’s pretty much the perfect post-Thanksgiving soup (obviously made with turkey not chicken – please forgive me…
