Root Veggie Barley Risotto from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two

Photo by Kate Lewis

It got into the 20’s here last night even though it was 70 degrees just 3 days ago, so that’s gotten me craving root veggies. I bought some great looking rutabagas at the farmers market and they will be the perfect centerpiece in this barley risotto tomorrow night. I’ve been in love with the humble […]

DSC_0773

I was at a wonderful food conference last weekend in upstate New York called Longhouse Revival. While it was much warmer than we expected in the morning there was enough of a chill in the air that made me long for bowls of piping hot soup. As soon as I got  home I made a slow […]

Slow Cooker Veggie Soup with Turnips

This is a perfect soup to come home from on a chilly night. I served mine with a pea shoot salad – yum!  Turnips seem to get a bad rap, but they’re in season and full of vitamin C. If you’ve had a not-so-good turnip experience in the past try them again in 2011. Get […]
