simply in season

when i asked for cookbook recommendations last month, brooke recommended the cookbook simply in season. a few weeks later, we were having lunch with the friends from the art department, and lisa made the delicious nova scotia hodgepodge recipe from the same book. i am currently borrowing the book from lisa, and the first thing i made was the same soup. i already want to make it again but i should try some of the other recipes first. most of the recipes are not vegan but can be easily adjusted. all fresh, simple and with few ingredients! 


2 tablespoons of earth balance melted in a soup pot
1 onion and a handful of green onions sauteed until soft
2 cups of veggie broth
1 cup of green beans
10-12 fingerling potatoes
4-6 medium carrots or a handful of carrot thinnings
simmer veggies until tender
add half cup of peas and cook until bright
add 2 cups of soy or almond milk and cook until warm
add salt, pepper and herbs to taste

    can't quite remember exactly what we've made from it but the dirtiest pgs for spring 'n summer are:

    Rhubarb Sorrel Crisp
    Fresh Pea Soup

    Four Bean Salad
    Zucchini Brownies

    Recently I've been dog-ear-ing lots in preparation for our 1st CSA pick-up in BKNY.
