Brisk Days, Cold Nights? Soup's On!

Posted on December 29, 2014 by Antoinette Celes | 0 comments

Now that Winter has finally come to the Pacific Northwest the wet days and cooler nights call for warm cozy foods. We've added organic soup stock to our menu as a quick and healthy way to make your own healthy soups or to warm you during your juice cleanse. Homemade stock is an incredible source of minerals and electrolytes and contains a number of substances with beneficial medicinal properties.

Nutritionist Barbara J. Rolls of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School has conducted over 250 clinical trials of soup in regulating appetite and food consumption. She has found that beginning any meal with a cup of soup curbs eaters appetites and cuts overall consumption by as much as 250 calories per meal.

Our soup stock is made from organic vegetables, contains no flavor enhancers like MSG or the 250 other names given to MSG. It is low in salt, slow simmered for rich flavor and super convenient. Gently heat for a warm liquid during your fast or add fresh vegetables and flavor for a quick homemade soup. It's slow food for us but a fast fix for you. Available in the Apothecary section of our shop.

 Recipe: Curried Cauliflower Soup

Put 1 chopped onion, 1 tablespoon minced ginger, 3 cups of Strawberry Moon Organic Vegetable Stock, salt & pepper in a pot over high heat. Boil, cover, lower the heat and simmer until the onion is tender, about 10 minutes. Add 2 cups cauliflower florets and 1 tablespoon of curry powder; cook until tender. Add 1 cup of coconut milk and heat through. Puree with a blender or food mill for a smooth creamy soup, if desired. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
