23 October 2021: Roasted Cauliflower & Potato Curry Soup

It’s soup weather! When I make cauliflower soups, I never think of creamy soups with a milk base. Adding tomato to this soup base was genius – something I had previously not thought of trying. After tasting this recipe, I’ll definitely correct that omission. With a tomato-based broth and the addition of coconut milk, this…

17 Sep 2021: Hello Old Friend, Moosewood Curried Squash & Mushroom Soup

My Moosewood Cookbook, purchased back in 1977, was one of the first books from which I learned to cook. Over time, its yellowing pages have introduced us to some delightful recipes and, of course, vegetarian cooking.

08 June 2020: Red Curry Cauliflower with Tofu

When you hear the name Joanne Chang do you think first of Flour Bakery’s fabulous baking and pastry? I do.

When we moved from our rental…

10 April 2017: Mushroom Curry

I love Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, really I do. And so, I when I came across a recipe on his website jamieoliver.com for Mushroom Curry, I decided to give it a whirl. I thought that navigating measurements in metric units would be my biggest challenge; however I have discovered that I don’t speak – and often…

19 February 2017: Red Curry Vegetable Soup

Living in a diverse community such as Lowell, MA, I sometimes find that I’ve taken for granted all of the ethnic flavors that are available to us here.  With one of the largest Southeast Asian populations in the United States, we’ve been so fortunate to experience some fantastic foods and flavors, and even the mainstream grocers…

02 August 2016 Curried Carrot Soup

Adapted from Mayo Clinic Diet. I love the combination of spices in this carrot soup – and with just 80 calories per 1 1/2 cups it is a perfect way to counteract the food treats I experienced at the Lowell Folk Festival this past weekend.  This tasty soup comes from the Mayo Clinic recipe resources….

Adapted from Riccardi, Victoria Abbott. “1 food 5 ways”. Vegetarian Times. (Mar. 2011). Issue 383, Vol. 37, No. 3. p. 67. My Comment: Eating We love curries — this one has a couple of things going for it. Using edamame in place of the traditional lentils is a clean taste. Not only is this recipe…
