Pea and spinach soup with mint, poached egg

0
Soupe de pois frais et épinards à la menthe et oeuf poché Yesterday the lunch was light since we had been invited by our neighbor’s for the Chinese new year to a restaurant. Usually, if I know my dinner will be more substantial than usual, I balance it out with a light lunch. After all, it’s all [...]

Pistou or pesto – Minestrone soup with quinoa, shrimps and pistou

0
Pistou o pesto – Minestrone con quinoa, gamberi e “pistou” (e non pesto) It’s been ages I haven’t made soup for myself, I’ve had no desire for soups whatsoever. Maybe with winter coming this way and cooler weather, this will change. Simple traditional minestrone is delicious, hearty, filled with [...]

Soup for the season – Split pea soup with pancetta

1
Zuppa di stagione – Zuppa di piselli spezzati con pancetta I tried many versions of split pea soup and this one is my favorite. You can keep it vegan if you don’t add the pancetta at the end, so it’s versatile. You can use bacon instead of pancetta, or just nothing at all…it’s all up to you. I [...]

Seems like winter – Chick pea and lacinato kale soup gratinée

2
Come se fosse l’inverno – Zuppa gratinata di ceci e cavolo nero  With the heat on, yes indeed it seems like winter. I live in the part of the city that gets the fog in summer, so my brain is wired to behave like we’re in winter and I have soup cravings. Growing up, I have always asked my parents [...]

Indeed fascinating – Lentil stew and poached egg with truffle oil

1
En effet, fascinant – Ragoût de lentilles et oeuf poché à l’huile de truffe  Anytime I eat a poached egg, it reminds me of this teenager sitting next to our table, at Gary Danko, a well known San Francisco restaurant, who was astonished to see a yolk running while he poked a poached egg on top of [...]

Simply Green – Green Gazpacho

11
On se met au vert – Gazpacho vert Since spring is officially here, my mood is officially looking for some light and fresh recipes, and what’s fresher than gazpacho? Cold soups are always wonderful for hot days, and nutritious too. I wanted to keep some of the flavors of a traditional gazpacho with [...]

Fresh, fruity and pink – Strawberry gaspacho

17
Frais, fruité et tout rose – Gaspacho de fraises I wanted to make something quick and fresh before my trip to LA leaving tomorrow, and use that big case of strawberries I bought. After strawberry tarts, coulis, cake, crumble, the only thing I haven’t tried with strawberries is soup and salad. So [...]

Vegan…or not Vegan – Red cabbage velouté with mixed vegetables

13
Vegan…ou pas vegan – Velouté de chou rouge et légumes It has been a long time since I posted a recipe on my blog. Not that I gave up blogging, or that I disappeared for no reason. I was in France for about one month and instead of enjoying my time with my family, I had to deal with the stress of my [...]

I heard it’s from Nice – Polenta and shrimp soup

14
On dit que ca vient de Nice – Soupe de crevettes et polenta I wish I could take the credit for this amazing soup, but unfortunately I cannot. I did change proportions of some ingredients but that’s the extent of my contribution to the recipe. One day going through my thick Mediterranean cookbook, [...]

Cauliflower adventures – Cauliflower and saffron cappuccino with clams

25
Les aventures d’un chou fleur – Cappuccino de chou fleur au saffran et praires Sorry about two cauliflower recipes in a row, I was convinced I used the nine of them I had in my case, then I found this one, that needed to be consumed or would go bad. Since I never throw away food (or at least I [...]
