Last weekend’s snow prompted me to make this warming stew. With a freshly made batch of harissa in my fridge, this nutritious and flavorful dish took only 20 minutes of active cooking time.
This dish is a classic Tunisian breakfast favorite. It’s interesting how many traditional cuisines have such savory and robust foods for breakfast. Although we celebrate the start of the day with some fairly hearty breakfasts in Santa Fe, like with chile smothered breakfast burritos, I think most people like to ease their appetite awake with more simple fare. Either way, this stew is delish, no matter what meal you decide to enjoy it.
Tuesday was the first spring-like day of the year. I decided to make a raw soup to celebrate the changing of the seasons. I have been looking forward to making this recipe all winter, and the weather finally gave me a reason to make it. Only two days later, it’s snowing. Oh Santa Fe, you keep us guessing!
This soup is an adaptation of a traditional Moroccan soup, not a contemporary raw food recipe. Semantics are an interesting thing, however, in Morocco they refer this dish as a salad.
Zach and I have both been fighting colds this week. I thought the topic of home made vegetable stock would be fitting. We have been eating a lot of soup in hopes of speeding up our recoveries.
Many of my recipes for soups, stews, and braises call for vegetable stock. Though you can always find a nice quality stock at the grocery store, I see it as an unnecessary expense. It is very easy to make your own and costs practically nothing.
Since we made oven braised beans yesterday, I thought I would post a recipe using the beans today. This recipe is a plant-based version of a childhood favorite.
Chile vs. Chili
I wanted to mention this before diving into the recipe. I feel somewhat obligated to go over this point, because depending on where you live geographically, you probably know one but not both of these terms.
