Asparagus Zucchini Winter Soup

2 Comments 16 December 2014

Zuchinni and Asparagus soup


Thank u @shushyturin for this great winter soup recipe!

  • 3 large zucchini (with skins)
  • 1 bunch of thin asparagus
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tbl unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbl dry sherry
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped finely
  • 2 large dashes of Kosher salt
  • 1 dash of fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (for Parma Crisps)

1. Top a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop spoonfuls (use a tablespoon) on to the liner into little mounds, then press them flat. Bake in 400 degree oven between 5 and 8 minutes (depending upon your oven). Once cooked remove from liner and serve with the soup. I make these while the soup is simmering. 1/2 cup grated cheese makes 9 to 12 crisps.

1. In heavy saucepan melt butter, and add the chopped onion and garlic. Stir till onion is translucent.

2. Wash vegetables and pat dry. Quick chop the zucchini into small chunks and add to pot. Cut off bottom of asparagus stocks (the woody section), and then rough chop the asparagus and add to pot. Cook for about 5 minutes till the veggies get some brown on them, stirring the entire time.

3. Once veggies are brown, add the chicken broth and bring the soup to a boil, then turn down heat. cover the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes.

4. Vegetables should be soft but still keep their green color. Test the vegetables by pressing them against the side of the pan with a wooden spoon. The vegetables are cooked when they smash against the side but still hold their shape.

5. Take the soup off the stove and using an immersion blender, blend all ingredients till it starts to thicken. I like the immersion blender over a food processor as the clean-up is much easier and I don’t make a big mess on my side counter, as I do when I use the food processor.

6. Just before serving add the sherry, mix well and pour into soup bowls. Add a bit of heavy cream to top, and affix one parmesan crisp in center and serve a couple on the side.

Caramelized French Onion Soup

No Comments 28 November 2012


The legendary “French” onion soup may give the impression of chic “La Femme” demurely sipping hot soup from fine china bowls and sterling soup spoons, but in actuality, French onion soup origins began with cheap laborers in the Lyons silk industry.   The inexpensive and easily found ingredients are what made this soup so affordable and comforting after working an 18 hour day looming the heavy silk attire that French men and women dreamed of impressing each other with.

 So, the next time you enjoy a hot fresh bowl of French onion soup, just remember that this recipe was intended to soothe and relax the hard workers in your home. Put up your feet, take a deep breath, and enjoy this moment of cozy comfort that was meant just for you.

Here’s another treasured Instagram recipe. Have a great day! Marlene

Healthy Brown Rice Sauteed with Spinach and Mushrooms

2 Comments 18 October 2011

This is another healthy and easy kosher recipe from the Magen David Yeshivah Chef at Home gourmet kosher cookbook(page 206).  I made it for a Sukkot meal, but of course its great for any Jewish holiday menu, or Shabbat meal. Since I was voted to cook the meal for the second night of Sukkot (always so HARD because everything has to be done from the day before!) I cooked the rice and the mushrooms in advance, and last minute re-sauteed the mushrooms and adding in the fresh baby spinach till it wilted.

I multiplied this recipe by 4 because I was having a lot of company and I also added in a cup of cooked wild rice which was not in the original recipe.

Kosher Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 cup COOKED wild rice according to the instructions on the bag
  • 2 cups Imagine No- Chicken Broth 
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 pound (total) portobella and button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bag fresh cleaned baby spinach leaves


  1. Combine washed rice and broth in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stir, reduce heat cover and simmer about 45 minutes till cooked.
  2. In another skillet, saute chopped  onion, mushrooms and garlic till tender. Stir in lemon juice and oregano.
  3. Right before serving, re-heat mushroom mixture and add in spinach until wilted- don’t overcook or you will lose the pretty bright green color of the fresh spinach.
  4. Toss brown rice with cooked wild rice, and mushroom and spinach mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
