Zucchini and Pea Soup Recipe

05.08.14 by Jackie

The weather isn't as warm these days compared to last week. I prepared a hearty soup made exclusively of vegetables I was able to harvest from our garden, except for the canned pinto beans.

Harvesting ingredients planted by the girls, Lulu and even baby Aria made me proud. They appreciate that we get to grow organic fruits and vegetables. So far we have been able to eat strawberries, Creole onions, green onions, zucchini, peas and the first tomatoes that have started peaking. Can't wait to see what the rest of the season will have for us!

Pea Soup Topped with Pasta Chips Recipe

I may sound like a broken record, but I try not to waste food. In Vietnamese, it is tội chết: "dreadfully sinful" to waste. Yesterday, I had a little bit of leftover boiled bow-tie pasta. The quantity was too little to serve as a main dish, so I seasoned them, deep-fried them and served them as chips.

To ensure everyone enjoyed the small amount of chips in equal portions, I used them as crunchy toppings for pea and leek soup. You could serve them as appetizers for a buffet-style party (maybe next week for Christmas Eve) in mini shot glasses. A sprinkle of curly parsley is more than enough to provide an elegant final touch. 

Waste not, want not!

Homemade Vegetable Soup Recipe

11.01.12 by Jackie

My husband Lulu has been stuck in bed for the last 2 days because of a bad cough. I made a comforting vegetable soup to soothe his throat. The ingredients of the soup are pretty standard. I used leeks, carrots, turnips, oregano, green onions, green peas and potatoes. For added crunch, saltiness and as a reminder of the flavoring in the soup, I topped the soup with fried green peas.

When I became a mom, I told myself I wouldn't become the kind of annoying mother, oversharing baby photos. So with that in mind, here's a really cute picture of my daughter Aria in her first Halloween costume. Isn't she a cutie pie?
