Sick Days & Snow Days / Soup

We're so behind! In the wake of our first FEAST, my immune system took a real nose-dive, and I've been fighting some mutant strain of the common cold for the last week and a half. Needless to say, I haven't really been on my game and a few things have fallen to the wayside; namely, our blog. Even with a bad case of the sniffles and David encouraging me to stay in bed, I did manage to cook up a couple of soups that deserved to be posted. Simple, hearty, healing!

Creamy Mushroom Soup with Herbs
made with local portabellos, dill, parsley, thyme, vegetable stock, shallots, garlic and pureed with creme fraiche

White Bean Soup
cannellini beans cooked with sage, thyme, a head of garlic, and olive oil,
pureed with the starchy cooking liquids and topped with chives
served with toasted baguette and arugula & radish salad

Fish Stew with Sunchoke Puree
monkfish, andouille sausage, fennel, shitake mushrooms, shallots, rosemary, parsley, one 28 oz. can of San Marzano tomatoes & lobster stock with a creamy sunchoke puree

accompanied by David's lovely salad of sauteed asparagus, arugula, Parmesiano-Reggiano, capers, with lemon vinaigrette.
