Healing Green Broth | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Clam, Halibut & Kale Chowder | Fresh Tart (Gluten-free)

Happy Birthday to me and to Fresh Tart! My baby turned 10 years old on January 6, how crazy is that? If you’re newish to these musings, this blog started as The Moderate Epicurean, reflecting my then efforts to indulge gracefully without compromising my health. It didn’t work very well, ha! In fact, in retrospect,…

Marvelously Rich and Simple Mushroom Soup (Paleo)

Mushroom Soup | Fresh Tart (Paleo)

As a mushroom fiend, I’ve made many attempts at mushroom soup, never to discover one that I wanted to make again. I wouldn’t keep trying if I hadn’t had the craveable ones, the ones that are the very essence of mushroom, earthy and savory and marvelously rich with hot cream and buttery fresh wild mushrooms. Since I can’t afford to make soup…

10-Minute Spring Soup (Paleo, AIP, Bone Broth) | Fresh Tart

Sometimes, I am a damn fool. The more I talk with people about whole food/paleo, anti-inflammatory food choices, and the autoimmune protocol in particular, the more I recognize a stage we all pass through – we start to feel better, and then we forget that we can’t eat whatever we want, and then we eat…

Halibut Coconut Milk Soup with Roasted Squash | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

While I might bemoan the slow fading away of summer – and oh, I do bemoan it, loudly – there’s no denying the deliciousness of winter squash, in full display at every market and grocery store right about now. The acorn varieties are my personal favorite, particularly the jester (stripe-y like a delicata but shaped…

Melon Soup | Fresh Tart (Paleo AIP, Vegan)

It’s not too late, it’s not too late! There are still fantastic melons – cantaloupes and watermelons are my fave, but honeydew is lovely too – to be had at the farmers market, so don’t be too annoyed with me for being so lazy about getting this post up.I was inspired to make melon soup…

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More | Fresh Tart (Paleo AIP)

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Soupe au Pistou | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

A bounty of garden-fresh vegetables and loads of fresh basil means it’s time for soup au pistou, one of my favorite summer treats. The first time I made it, I was a bit confused by the simplicity of the ingredients: vegetables cooked in water, that’s it? I underestimated the transformative power of pistou, the French…

Homemade Chicken Broth (Bone Broth, Paleo, AIP)

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

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,…
