Winter has settled in here in the coast of Carpintera and there is nothing more comforting than a warm soup! Root vegetables, crucifers, and spices are the delicious focus for the cooler days to come. This recipe is one of those go to's when you are preparing for a busy week or wanting to add to your favourite dish at a potluck! I love to prepare some of my weeks meals on Sundays where I can then enjoy some warm food on the longer days throughout the week.
As we begin to count down the days to the holiday festivities and dinners to come it is a fun time to gather some ideas of what to cook! You can never go wrong with a big pot of home cooked soup, especially when it is so beautifully decorated with all of the christmas colors! Here at the Heritage Goods and Supply shop we have some special goods to garnish your soup dish, such as the Landsea Gomasio! As well as our beautiful handmade ceramic bowls to enjoy your soup in!
It is always recommended to shop for your produce locally! Our neighbours down at our Heritage Shop are the Farm Cart of Carpinteria and they are a great resource for some amazing organic produce!
