  • Dinner Tonight: Warming Curry Cauliflower Soup

    by Paula Gallagher | November 28, 2018

    This curry cauliflower soup is easy to whip up and is the perfect meal after a day of shoveling snow or playing in it! It combines antioxidant-rich cauliflower and warming spices like ginger and cayenne. And because the veggies are roasted, the soup has a wonderful rich and creamy texture without a drop of cream.

    Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable that can be eaten raw, steamed, baked or pureed. Also, it delivers a wallop of nutrients and antioxidants responsible for its oft-touted health properties. A study in the journal Stroke found that for every 25g increase in the daily intake of white vegetables and fruits (about 1/4 cup of cauliflower), the risk of suffering a stroke dropped by 9%.

A raw food diet consists of eating fully uncooked and unprocessed food, but can include food preparation techniques such as fermenting, spiralizing, dehydrating, and blending. And because there is little to no heat applied in the raw food kitchen, foods are kept “living,” which preserves the integrity of many nutrients. Some raw “cooking” techniques, such as sprouting and fermenting, unlock valuable nutrients, making an ingredient more digestible. Read more

    borschtTraditionally an Eastern European dish, Borscht is a beet soup that is perfect for cooler weather. This hearty and colorful soup will certainly help you meet your daily requirement for vegetables. Rich in antioxidants, it makes a satisfying, probiotic-rich meal, especially when served with cheese and chunky fresh bread.

    Although this soup is packed with vegetables, making it a nutritional powerhouse of vitamins and minerals, the star of this dish is the beet! Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys and pancreas).

    by Paula Gallagher | October 18, 2016

    red-cabbageWe are well into fall now, with leaves starting to change colors, and crisper mornings and cooler nights. Fall is definitely one of my favorite times of year and aside from the beauty of the season, the produce that is available is spectacular. Squash, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and grapes are just a few things that arrive with the abundance of autumn harvest. Another three foods that I adore, especially in this soup recipe, are cabbage, pears and pomegranates.

    Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that really gives you a lot of bang for your buck. With so many varieties of cabbage, there is something for everyone. In this recipe, red cabbage is the star. Read more

  • Dinner Tonight: Cabbage Curry Soup

    by Paula Gallagher | December 7, 2015

    cabbageThere is something soul-soothing about making a warming winter meal while the wind blows and the snow falls (anyone else have snow yet?). Growing up, we had soup every day, usually to end the meal. Today, though, I enjoy soup on its own as a meal in itself. This cabbage soup is an economical meal that provides a bounty of nutrients.

    Cabbage is a great source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, and a range of vitamins. Cabbage is part of  the cruciferous family of vegetables and it contains  a group of chemicals called glucosinolates, which studies have shown could reduce the risk of certain cancers.

    Cabbage is very versatile and also comes in many varieties. Green, red, savoy and Napa all have unique nutritional properties. From salads to slaws to soups, make sure that cabbage is part of your late fall meal planning. Read more
