Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

"A great soup to warm you up in a hurry. Great any time of year. You can play with the volumes of jalapeno and ginger and sour cream, to whatever you like. You can vary the amount of sour cream you add depending on how 'hot' you want the soup to taste."

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced*

  • 1 (2 pound) butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed*

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, or to taste

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, ginger, and jalapeno pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the butternut squash and chicken broth, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.

  2. Stir in the evaporated milk, coconut milk, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes more. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth, and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot. Ladle into bowls, and garnish with sour cream and thyme to serve.

*Lacinato Kale
Heirloom. Good looks and great taste combine in Lacinato kale, which makes a striking addition to any garden setting. Dark blue-green to black leaves often have a heavily crinkled texture, which inspires one of its many common names, dinosaur kale. The flattened leaves are perfect for making kale chips. This kale dates to 18th-century Italy, which is why it’s also called Tuscan kale. Thomas Jefferson grew it in his garden at Monticello.Kale is a super food, and Lacinato leaves extend excellent health benefits, lowering cholesterol, fighting cancer, and decreasing inflammation. Prepare leaves steamed, sautéed, or roasted. Kale is a classic fall flavor and combines nicely with garlic, peppers, chickpeas, sausage, squash, and apples.

Recipe to try:

Lacinato Kale Salad

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (45 milliliters)

  • 1 1/2 lemons - juiced

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

  • 1 bunch lacinato kale (also called cavolo nero, black kale, tuscan kale) (about 4 cups / 200 grams) - with the thick stems removed, washed and roughly chopped

  • 7 ounces bacon (200 grams)

  • 1 cup walnuts (120 grams) - roughly chopped

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan (60 grams)

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (40 grams)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

  • Pour the dressing over the kale leaves, and using your fingers, rub the dressing into the kale leaves. Make sure to work each of the leaves. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes to allow the olive oil and lemon juice to soften the kale.

  • When you are ready to serve the salad, heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a small frying pan on medium heat. Add in the bacon and cook, stirring frequently, until most of the fat has rendered and the bacon is starting to brown, leaving the grease in the pan. Add in the walnuts and cook, stirring frequently, until the walnuts are lightly toasted, about 3-5 minutes.

  • Pour the hot bacon and walnut mixture, over the softened kale leaves and toss. Toss in the cranberries and parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

  • 2 potatoes, diced*

  • 1 ear of fresh corn- kernels sliced off*

  • 1 cup stock ( veggie, chicken or fish) or sub water- or use corn stock (see notes)

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • Pepper to taste

  • ⅛ cup fresh basil leaves – diced*

  • Optional 2–3 tablespoon half and half or almond milk

  • Seared fish or chicken

  • olive oil for searing

  • salt and pepper to taste

instructions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté lightly. Add potatoes and corn. Saute 2- 3 minutes, add water or stock, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Cover, turn heat down to low and simmer 10 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.

While the potatoes are simmering, heat oil in another skillet. Season fish or chicken with salt and pepper and sear each side over medium high heat. Lower heat and cook to your desired doneness. Set aside.

When the potatoes are fork tender, uncover and cook off a little of the liquid. At this point you could add a few tablespoons half and half or almond milk for a little extra creaminess ( cook it for a minute or two to thicken) or simply  leave it out.

Stir in half of the basil. Taste, adjust salt.

Right before serving, stir in the remaining basil, saving a little for the top. Dish up the sweet corn”chowder” and top with the seared fish or chicken and more basil.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Ingredients

For the chocolate zucchini cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder sifted

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil or canola oil

  • 1/4 cup melted butter cooled to room temperature

  • 1/4 cup buttermilk at room temperature

  • 3 large eggs at room temperature

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 cups shredded zucchini

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

For the chocolate frosting:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar

  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 35o degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sifted cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, oil, melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.

  4. Stir in the dry ingredients until barley combined, it is ok if there is still some flour not mixed in. Gently squeeze out some of the moisture in the zucchini. You want the zucchini to still have some moisture, but not full of liquid. Add the zucchini and chocolate chips and stir until just combined. Don't over mix.

  5. Pour the cake batter in the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula. Bake for 25-32 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center or the cake.

  6. Let the cake cool completely. While the cake is cooling, make the chocolate frosting. In the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until smooth, about 1 minute. In a large bowl, sift together the confectioner's sugar and the cocoa powder. Add the mixture to the butter and beat, slowly adding in the milk. Add the vanilla extract and salt. Stop and scrape down the sides. Beat until frosting is smooth and fluffy.

  7. Frost the cooled chocolate zucchini cake with chocolate frosting. Cut the cake into squares and serve.
