While I was in Senegal the average temperature was 90 F, with a heat index that made it feel like 100. It was hot. And there was nary an air conditioner anywhere. While I was baking away, Fall was descending on the mid-atlantic. Though normally Fall seems time to wear cosy clothes, drink apple cider and eat pumpkin-related items, right now it just feels downright COLD. Seriously, I'm freezing.
So when I got home I instantly began looking for some new soup recipes. Luckily 101 Cookbooks had a delicious looking soup that featured not only my love, ginger, but CHARD! I knew it was meant to be.
I made the mistake of not adding the ginger when I put in the other veggies, so I had to let it sit a little longer, which of course caused the veggies to lose a little bit of their consistency, but it was still delicious. The extra lemon juice at the end seemed bizarre, but really gave the soup a kick - I ended up adding a little extra.
For this great recipe, check out Heidi's post for this Green Soup with Ginger.
