If for no other reason, make this soup for the way it will make your house smell.
Seriously. It should be a diptych candle.
Winnie, the quiet cook from New Paltz with the seriously brilliant blog, Healthy Green Kitchen, is another of the home cook bloggers I’ve met through Food52. Before Food52, and their lively online community of home cooks, I expressed myself, creativity and intellectually, alone in my own kitchen.
I certainly had friends who cooked, but no one with the lunacy to make a cake twelve times until it was perfect. Or chop ten pounds of onions just to learn to dice and mince and brunoise. Or figure out how to recreate a restaurant meal. Or put up food in jars, for heaven’s sake.
Food52 came along and I found my peeps. Love you all. And then there was Twitter. Found more. And now, seriously? I’ve learned some mad kitchen skills, and have at hand an unbelievably vibrant, seemingly endless, resource of great ideas for dinner.
And that’s why I want you to meet Winnie. Winnie’s blog is where my love for food and Dennis’ desire for health collide. Her recipes never fail to impress us both. I served her award winning Turkey Pho at the Dead Poultry Society and we were scraping the last drops from a huge batch before the party was half over.
Here’s a link to the recipe. Give it a try. I think you’ll love it. And I know you’ll love the way the house smells.
