Today I’m reviewing the Dutch book Leafs by Carola de Kanter. From the book I also make a green pea soup with lemon!
I like the idea of using everything when I cook so when I made my pickled white asparagus a few days ago, I also immediately made a soup of the asparagus peel left. A creamy, white asparagus soup with a lot of flavor!
Chestnuts are really a nice treat to enjoy at this time of the year! Just roasted with some salt and butter on a cold evening in front of the fireplace. Aaaah! But luckily you also can enjoy them even without the open fire. Like in this soup with chestnuts and crispy sage.
October means to me that the real soup-season has started. Preferably with a lot of flavor and tasty vegetables. Today I serve a comforting soup with courgette and saffron.
Don’t miss the give-away at the end of the post! A number of days ago, I was invited for a try-out in a new restaurant in Rotterdam, Freshii. Freshii already exists in 15 countries and 75 cities al over the world but this one, is the first in the Netherlands. Freshii wants to offer a healthy alternative for a snack, lunch or dinner when on the run. Eat and get energized is the Northstar in their green philosophy. And the real good news is, the menus are suitable for everyone – carnivores, vegetarians and vegans. You can completely customize your own dish. Wow!
So finally, December is past and January started. I hope you al have had a good Christmas and new year! Personally I couldn’t wait for the routines of normal weekdays to start again. Not so much because I don’t like holiday’s but because I like the feeling of being “on it” with both food and sports. Do you feel the same? Maybe you also have the feeling, just like me, of bringing in new routines in your life, or just taking back the old ones you had? Maybe this soup is the kick in the right direction?
Maybe you actually made the complete oven-cooked celeriac sunday? And you did your utmost best to finish it but still you are left with half of it (that’s what happened to me with my 2 kilo celeriac at least)? Congratulations, this is a fresh start of a vegetarian soup for lunch or dinner!
