Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

Winter has finally arrived and I am celebrating with this butternut squash and apple soup topped with cinnamon caramelized apples. It’s vegan, gluten free and made with a base of coconut milk (hello, extra creaminess!). Even better, the soup contains less than 10 ingredients and can be prepped in no time!

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

Ingredients

  • 3 garlic cloves

  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger

  • 4 cups vegetable broth

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Sugar to taste (I used about 1 tablespoon)

For the Caramelized Apples

  • 1 Autumn Glory apple, cubed

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon oil (you can use butter instead if you prefer)

Directions

Heat a pot with a drizzle of olive oil. Add your onions, garlic, ginger, cubed butternut squash and cubed apples and let everything sauté for 10-12 minutes. The Autumn Glory apple’s are naturally sweet, caramel flavored with notes of cinnamon that are perfect for this recipe!

Next add your coconut milk and vegetable broth. Season with salt, pepper and sugar as needed. Let the components and liquid simmer for about 30-45 minutes until the squash and apples are fork tender.

In the meantime, start to make your caramelized apples. Place a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet and add your apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Mix every 1-2 minutes until the apples are caramelized and the brown sugar and cinnamon is cooked through the apples. Set aside.

Place your soup mixture in a blender or use an immersion blender to blend the soup until all mixed through and creamy. Heat on medium-low and season as needed. Serve and top with your caramelized apples!

Vegan Dumplings with a Spicy Coconut Broth

Vegan Dumplings with a Spicy Coconut Broth

Working on my pleating grind, how did I do?! Vegan dumplings mixed with mushrooms, cabbage, carrots and loads of sesame oil and soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Paired with a spicy coconut broth with my fave Califia Farms Go Coconuts coconutmilk. It’s served as a hot broth but can work for the summertime as a cold sauce/broth as well. Seriously so easy and quick too (minus the pleating, that took more practice ;) 

Vegan Dumplings with a Spicy Coconut Broth

In the Dumpling Mixture

  • 1 Shredded Large Carrot
  • 8 minced mushrooms (you can use oyster, button or shiitake mushrooms) 1⁄4 cup minced green cabbage
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1⁄2 T soy sauce
  • 1⁄2 T olive oil
  • 1⁄2 T minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1⁄4 tsp white pepper (add more to your liking)
  • Chili flakes
  • Sesame seeds
  • Wonton wrappers (make sure they are vegan!)
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Broth

  • 3-4 T Califia Go Coconuts Coconutmilk
  • 1/4th cup Sriracha (less if you want less spicy!)
  • 3/14th-1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 T sesame oil
  • 2 T soy sauce

Directions

Start to make your dumpling mixture by shredded your carrots, garlic and ginger. Mince your mushrooms and mix in a bowl with sesame oil, soy sauce olive oil, white pepper, chili flakes, sesame seeds and salt & pepper to taste.

Make your dumplings by forming them in your favorite shape (you can do a triangle shape by just folding over or pleating the dumplings. You can do this by stuffing the dumpling, taking both sides together and slowly pleating the sides, folding over with both fingers to create each pleat).

Once all your dumplings are formed, toast the bottoms of the dumplings in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil. In the meantime, make your broth by mixing your coconut milk, sriracha, vegetable broth, red chili flakes, sesame seeds, sesame oil and soy sauce in a saucepan until all the flavors are absorbed and it becomes a creamy broth.

Plate your dumplings and spoon over the broth, top with sesame seeds and green onions, serve and enjoy!

  • 1/2 tsp paprika 
  • 1/8th tsp dried lemongrass 
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar 
  • 2-3 chiles
  • 1/2 beet chopped (for color and slight flavor)

Directions: 

  1. Make your curry paste first by slicing shallots, garlic, ginger and seeded and slicing your dried chiles. Place in a pan (without oil) and just char for about 10-15 minutes. 
  2. Place in a blender with paprika, lemongrass, salt, coriander, cumin and oil. Mix until a paste is formed. Add water if needed. Set aside. 
  3. Make your pickled red onions by slicing red onions and adding in your vinegars, water, pepper, salt, sugar chiles and a beet for color. Set in your fridge for 1-2 hours or keep overnight. 
  4. Once your onions and curry paste are ready, get the curry ready. Get 4 American Lamb Loin Chops and sear them in a big pot. Once seared and crusted, add in 2 cups of coconut milk and bring to a boil. Once bubbling, about 10-15 minutes, add in sugar, pepper salt and fish sauce. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes and add in your water and the curry paste. You can add as spicy as you’d like it, but we added about 1/3rd cup. 
  5. Let your curry simmer and reduce a bit and let lamb cook through and get tender about 20-30 minutes. If it gets too thick, you can always add water. 
  6. Once the lamb is tender, take it out and use a knife or fingers to tear apart and cube the lamb loin chops. Place the cubes back in the curry and stir for another 2-3 minutes. 
  7. When your curry is just about done, make your egg noodles according to the package instructions and start to spoon your curry in a bowl, add your noodles and garnish. 
  8. We added fresh mint, cilantro, pickled red onions, jalapeño, lime wedges and chili flakes but you can add whatever you’d prefer! Serve along some jasmine rice + enjoy!

The Best Khao Soi You'll Ever Eat (And Cook!)

IMG_5780.JPG

Game. Over. Made this Khao Soi (Thai coconut curry noodz) last night and it was spectaaacuuular, literally outdone myself, perhaps one of the best things I’ve ever made but maybe I’m bias because I love Thai Food. There is something about the flavors of Thai food that inspire me no matter what.

Thai food at first for me seemed like something was only attainable at restaurants, because the flavors taste so intense and strong that I never thought I can create my own really good Thai food at home. But once you get the technique down and find a local market that has all the ingredients you need - you're golden! I'll be honest though, this recipe is particular does have a lot of ingredients but I was surprised I already had a lot of these spices and simple ingredients already in my kitchen. You can definitely find other thai dishes a little bit simpler - but trust me, it's worth the extra steps for this one! 

This recipe is inspired by Night + Market's new cookbook (also one of my LA favorite restaurants!) I used Kris' Khao Soi recipe but added my own twist on some things, adjusting some seasoning, measurements + took out some ingredients and added some ingredients. 

Ingredients: 

  • 3 chicken thighs 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3-4 tablespoons sugar/palm sugar, i used 1/2 sugar 1/2 palm sugar, once the soup is complete, you can add more sugar too if you like your Khao Soi even sweeter
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoon khao soi paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 tsp sesame oil 
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil 

Toppings:

  • egg noodles - 5-10 ounces
  • bean sprouts 
  • thinly sliced shallots 
  • cilantro
  • lime wedges 

Khao Soi Paste: I pretty much used his paste recipe to the T except instead of his roasted chile flakes, I just used regular thai chile flakes and also turmeric powder instead of fresh turmeric. 

  • 1/4 cup sliced garlic
  • 1 T turmeric powder
  • 1/3 sliced ginger
  • 1/2 cup sliced shallots
  • 3 large dried NM chiles, seeded, cut into segments
    • 1-2 tablespoons chile flakes 
  • 3-4 fresh cardamon 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, put your chicken thighs, salt, fish sauce, sugar and coconut milk. Let boil, around 10-15 minutes.
  2. Make your khao soi paste: start by heating a small pan or wok and toast your sliced garlic, ginger, shallots and chiles. For the chiles, slice, seed and roughly chop. Dry cook/roast these on medium heat until browned and soft, around 15 minutes. Transfer everything to a food processor or blender with turmeric powder, chile powder, cardamom, salt and oil and blend to make a paste. You can add a little bit of oil or water extra, but not too much since you do want this super thick. 
  3. When the paste is ready, add 4-5 tablespoons to the pot (add more or less depending on desired heat, I like mine HOT). Add in your remaining turmeric powder and chile powder. Add in about 1 or 2 cups water and let simmer. I also added some sesame oil as well, about 1-2 tablespoons. Feel free to add more water as well if it get's too thick. 
  4. Once simmering, get your noodles ready. Take a little bit to the side to fry for the toppings and boil your water and cook the noodles according the the package instructions. To fry your noodles, heat vegetable oil and 1 tsp of sesame oil until really hot, add the noodles and fry 1-2 minutes on each side, set aside.
  5. Once noodles are cooked and the soup is boiled through and chicken is tender, start to spoon your soup into bowls, this will make about 3-4 bowls. Add the noodles and your toppings - fried noodles, limes, chile flakes, bean sprouts, cilantro and shallots. + Enjoy!

Tomato Soup with Sweet & Tangy Mustard Croutons

IMG_5747 A simple and delicious approach to tomato soup without any milk or cream. Topped with a unique garnish, challah sweet and tangy mustard croutons. The sweet and tangy mustard is from East Shore Foods and pairs so well with the challah bread! Read more for the recipe! 

Tomato Soup:

Prep cutting time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 1 hour

  • 4 cups veggie stock
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 1/2 yellow onion
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 large potatoes
  • bunch of lemon basil
  • bunch of dill
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder and sugar (to taste)
  • splash of red wine (about 1 t)
  • splash of balsamic (about 1 t)
  1. Start cutting and prepping your vegetables, cut them in cubes and make the cuts as consistent as possible for same cooking time
  2. Put garlic and onions first and sweat them out, add a pinch of salt, pepper and garlic
  3. Add the cut potatoes and carrots
  4. Then tomatoes, chiffonade basil and add the dill
  5. Add in the splash of wine and balsamic and mix, pinch of salt and pepper, sugar
  6. Allow to sweat and simmer with the water it's in (wine and balsamic and juices from veggies)
  7. When it starts to simmer, add in the 4 cups of stock and when it starts to boil and your carrots and potatoes are soft, take your blender/hand blender and blend through
  8. Once it is all blended, add more salt/pepper/garlic/sugar
  9. The starch from the potatoes makes the soup creamy so milk and cream doesn't need to be added, at this point you can add in milk or cream if you want your soup more creamy but the consistency after the blending should be smooth and creamy
  10. Let sit and garnish with the croutons and lemon basil (recipe will be below)

Sweet & Tangy Challah Croutons 

IMG_5740

Serves about 1 cup, 8 minutes in the oven

  • 2 sliced pieces of challah bread
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp of salt, pepper, garlic
  • 2 tsp East Shore Foods sweet and tangy mustard
  1. Slice your challah and mix in a bowl with the olive oil, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic
  2. Lay out on a sheet with parchment paper and cook in the oven for about 8 minutes or until the croutons are crispy (depends on oven), I used a mini oven that did not allow me to set a specific temp before so I just did it for 8 minutes but you can preheat your oven to 300-350 and you should be set!
  3. Serve on top of your tomato soup and you're good to go!
