This seems like the perfect weather to make a big pot of soup. When the weather is cold, few things are more comforting than having a delicious soup simmering on the stove. And so the other night I pulled out some of my cookbooks to find a good one. Sometimes looking for recipes is half the fun.
I browsed through Giada de Laurentiis' new cookbook Giada's Feel Good Food. It is filled with healthy and delicious-looking recipes.
I decided to make her Turkey, Kale, and Brown Rice soup which looked beautiful
It couldn't have been simpler. You start by chopping some vegetables.
After you saute them, you add the remaining ingredients which include kale, brown rice, red peppers, and herbes de provence. The soup simmers for about 30 minutes. This will make your kitchen smell heavenly!
The result is a beautiful, warm and nourishing soup to eat on a cold February night. Add a savory scone and a green salad and you have a delicious winter meal.
Go here to get the recipe for Giada's Turkey, Kale, and Brown Rice Soup. And better yet, go here to order her beautiful book.
I hope you enjoy it. What are you cooking on these cold winter nights? Isn't it bliss to stay home?
And what are you reading? I am almost done with The Goldfinch. Can't wait to discuss it with my book club next week!
