Tabbouleh Soup

Tabbouleh soup recipe

When it starts to (finally) get warmer outside, tabbouleh salad is one of my favourite salads to have as a quick lunch during the week. It doesn’t take long to prepare and it always tastes so fresh with the crunch of cucumbers, sweet tomatoes and parsley and the bulgur wheat makes it a much more substantial meal than it appears to be. Taking those elements of a tabbouleh salad and turning them into a soup is a natural transition and basically the only extra ingredients you’ll need here is some good quality vegetable stock, tomato paste and a little honey, which most of us have in our cupboards already, right? Right!

Rain or shine, this soup might be the easiest (and one of the tastier) things you could put on your dinner table this month.

Peppercorn and Cinnamon Preserved Lemons

Preserved lemons recipe

I haven’t really been able to get enough of preserved lemons lately. They’re tart, briny and work well in so many different dishes. Of course, adding an entire preserved lemon to a dish would probably be a bit much, but a few slices here and there help brighten up almost any dish.

Here’s a really simple recipe for them that was given to me by Calgary chef, Evan Robertson a year or so ago. They’re easy to make, but the hardest part is waiting for them to be finished. Hurry up lemons, god damn it!

Culinaire Magazine: Recipe Round Up For The Winter

braised pork and onion soup recipe

I’m not really sure how I ever got some enamoured with making soup. I do travel a lot these days, so maybe it’s the fact that a soup sitting in the fridge for a couple days while I’m out of town for work tastes just that much better (always true) or maybe it’s just the thought that as soon as I walk in the door, I can grab a bowl, reheat and eat. Tasty convenience is always nice, isn’t it!

I primarily do soup recipes for the magazine with my column, appropriately titled “Soup Kitchen”, so here are 6 of those that you can try to whip up this week. I faithfully standby their tastiness, 110%.

Happy Souping!

Winter Vegetable and Cracked Grain Salad

Cracked wheat salad recipe

I spent last week in Winnipeg to do some leg work for a story I’m working on and I was lucky enough to snag a cooking segment on CTV Morning Live. Truth be told, this isn’t the best photo I’ve ever taken, but it was a quick snap after recording in-studio there.

(Chatting about EatNorth.ca before we head over to the CTV kitchen to start cooking. You can check out the clip here.)

There’s a lot of other ways to enjoy winter vegetables than simply just roasting them and having them alongside some roast chicken or pork. This salad is perfectly filling and makes for an easy lunch during the week or something lighter at the dinner table.

Bulgur Wheat and Zucchini Salad

Bulgur wheat salad recipe

Happy New Year! Don’t you find that when Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall in the middle of their perspective weeks, we all seem to relax a lot more over than holidays? I certainly do. Having said that, I’m back from a couple weeks of rest and relaxation (and one hell of a trip to New York City), so I’m refreshed and ready to take on 2015 as best I can.

I originally came up with this salad recipe for the Chopped Canada Mystery Solved blog series on FoodNetwork.ca last winter, but thought it would be perfectly fitting for January. A month where most of us try to eat better (or less), but still want what we’re eating to taste good.

Bulgur wheat is a fun grain to play around with and nowadays you should be able to find it at most major grocery stores. So, go find some and try this salad out!

Caramel Butternut Squash and Apple Holiday Squares

Butternut squash dessert recipe

It’s extremely rare that you’ll find me baking desserts in my kitchen. I leave that sort of task to my much more talented friends (Stephanie Eddy), my mother or grandmother. But, when the Calgary Food Bloggers Bake Sale rolls around, I feel obligated to brush the dust off my rolling pin and stand mixer and whip something up for a good cause.

Before you start thinking butternut squash in a dessert is weird, I assure that it practically tastes identical to pumpkin once this is all over and done with. So…phew. Exactly.

To finish off the squares, I used a chai caramel sauce that I made at home (a recipe that you can find on EatNorth.ca), but if making homemade caramel sauce isn’t your thing or extremely hot sugar in a pan scares you, then just go out and buy some good quality stuff!
