a couple of recipes and the winner

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Today I made a quick, delicious zucchini potato soup and a couple of stuffed peppers with the vegetables from my CSA share.

Saute: 1 diced medium onion , 6-8 diced small potatoes until tender.  Add 3 diced zucchini, 1 diced summer squash and cook until those are tender.  Add 4 cups of vegetable broth, 1/2 cup white wine, 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tsp tarragon, 1 tsp pepper.  Simmer for a couple of hours.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and enjoy.

And with the peppers?  I cooked 1 cup of quinoa with 1 cup of homemade tomato sauce and 1 cup of vegetable broth.  Stirred in peas and feta cheese and a dash of red peppers and stuffed that into the green peppers.  Baked the peppers for about an hour at 350˚ until the pepper was tender.

The winner of the first weeks book giveaway, knitologie,  is number 56, Sandra.  Please email me with your address and I'll make sure the book lands in your hands.

See you tomorrow!
