    Carrot and Apple Soup (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    Sweet apples and sophisticated spices amplify this otherwise unassuming version of carrot soup. This soup is an excellent way to offer your family or guests the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables in one pot. Including the fresh apple creates another layer of texture and complements the freshness of the apples in the soup. Whether you’re using it as a starter to your meal, or enjoying a large bowl to yourself while curled up during these chilling winter months, this soup is satisfying without being overbearing.

    Ingredients:
    1½ pounds peeled and diced carrots
    1 Fuji or Braburn apple peeled and diced, divided
    1½ teaspoons freshly grated ginger
    1 medium diced white onion
    ½ cup apple juice
    3½ cups chicken broth
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ¼ teaspoon allspice
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    Chopped mint for garnish

    Preparation:
    Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onions until they begin to sweat and are translucent, about 2 minutes.

    Add chicken broth, ¾ cup apple, ginger, diced carrot. Stir and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and allow to simmer 20-30 minutes, or until carrots are tender when pierced.

    Puree soup in batches in the blender and return to pan. Add apple juice and spices and reheat on low-medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.

    Mix remaining apple with mint in a bowl. Ladle soup into serving bowls and garnish with apple-mint mixture.

    Green Bean Salad with Toasted Almonds and Cherry Vinaigrette (Gluten-Free)
    The versatility of green beans to adapt to different flavors makes them an incredible side that compliments almost any meal. This is a beautiful dish that blends ease with elegance. The nuttiness of the almonds contrasts tartness of the cherries and because the beans are blanched, they cook to crisp perfection. This salad makes for an incredible bite.
    Cherries are high in iron and antioxidants and their flavor lends this dish to be enjoyed by even the pickiest of veggie-phobes.
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ pounds green beans
    1/3 cup minced shallots
    2 tbsp chopped mint
    1/3 cup dried cherries
    ½ cup toasted slivered almonds
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil   
    3 tbsp plus 2 tsp red wine vinegar
    1 ½ tsp kosher salt
    1 tsp sugar
    Preparation:
    Cherry vinaigrette can be made up to one day ahead. Keep covered and chilled; bring to room temperature before re-whisking to serve.
    In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, shallots, red wine vinegar, mint, salt and sugar. Stir in cherries and set aside.
    While a large pot of water comes to a boil, fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside. Add beans to boiling water and let cook until tender and crisp, no more than 5 minutes. Drain and transfer beans to the ice bath to cool. Drain once more.
    Toss cooled beans with the cherry vinaigrette and almonds. Sprinkle with black pepper and serve on a platter.

    Soups make wonderful lunches and double as light dinners. They’re also a great way to introduce almost any meal. This recipe calls for the soup to be partially blended which creates a creamy texture while still maintaining a rustic quality.
    You could easily blend the entire pot with a hand-held blender or in batches depending on the size of your blender or food processor. Whatever your preference, never bring your soup to a boil; nothing ruins the flavor quicker. Whether served warm in the winter or chilled in the summertime, make it a point to stock up on corn to try this is an always-tasty, go-to chowder.
    Ingredients:
    3-4 large ears of corn
    5 cups milk
    2 large Russet potatoes, diced
    1 medium onions, diced
    3 celery stalks, diced
    5 slices bacon, chopped
    1 ½ tablespoons butter
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    Directions:
    Remove kernels from ears and set aside, reserving the cobs.
    Cook bacon in a large soup or stock pot over medium heat until they begin to crisp, stirring occasionally, about 10-12 minutes. Leave bacon in pot along with about 2 tablespoons of fat. Add onion and celery and cook until tender and slightly browned, stirring occasionally for an additional 10-12 minutes.
    Add milk, potatoes and cobs to the pot. Gently simmer while covered until potatoes become tender, 12-15 minutes. Remove and discard cobs and add kernels to the soup along with salt and pepper.
    Simmer 5-7 minutes longer until kernels soften slightly. Remove from heat and separate about half the solids from the soup and puree in a blender until smooth. Return to soup and add butter. Heat over low until butter is melted and incorporated.
