Simple Cabbage Soup {Taste and Create}

Welcome, 2014...I'm back to participating in Taste and Create. Somehow this fun monthly blog exchange fell off my radar in 2013. But I contacted Min and this month I was assigned to Seduce Your Tastebuds. It's a gorgeous food blog written by Padmajha Sureshbabu under the pen name PJ. When she started her blog, she was full of doubt, asking herself: "What am I doing?! If I start a blog, will I be able to do justice to it?" Yes, PJ, you are doing a fabulous job and I am happy to have found your blog.

There were so many of her recipe that I want to try. They are bookmarked for future dinners. Check out her: Dragonfruit Salad, Coconut Kheer, and Simple Beetroot Pooriyal.

But for a quick, mid-week supper, I adapted Seduce Your Tastebuds's Simple Cabbage Soup. Thanks to my CSA box from High Ground Organics, I had plenty of ingredients to make this veggie-heavy. And since I didn't  need to hide the cabbage, I only blended about 2/3 of the soup, leaving some of it chunky and rustic. Also, I don't have a pressure cooker, so this took some adapting, but it was a hit!

olive oil
5 stalks of celery, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1 head of cabbage, chopped
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 tomato, diced
1 poblano chile, deseeded and chopped
4 C organic chicken broth
2 t ground cumin
1 t ground coriander
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground pepper
black sesame seeds for garnish

In a large souppot, heat a splash of olive oil. Stir in the celery, carrots, onion, poblano, and cabbage. Cook until fork tender. Add in the chicken broth and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Season with cumin and coriander. Let cool slightly, then blend to the consistency that you want. Add salt and pepper to to taste. Serve garnished with black sesame seeds.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
