Vietnamese Spicy Eggplant & Mint Soup

Vietnamese Spicy Eggplant & Mint Soup

I had a wonderful soup at Long’s Provencal Restaurant in downtown Seattle. It was so good, I knew I had to try to replicate it at home. I tried doing a search for it online, but no luck…so, I came up with my own recipe and it tastes pretty darn close to the one at the restaurant!

Rocket Pop Sorbet

Rocket Pop Sorbet

Remember those Red, White, and Blue popsicles? Well, this sorbet is inspired by them, and is a great hot weather treat (not to mention being really pretty!). But, unlike the popsicles, this sorbet is made with no artificial colors or flavors, and it has a decidedly mature flavor profile. Fresh, tart, and herbal, this sorbet has 3 layers (strawberry-black pepper, lemon-sour mix, and blueberry-thyme) and the flavors all compliment each other.

Carrot and Ginger Soup

Carrot and Ginger Soup

Healthy, delicious and velvety; this versatile carrot-ginger soup is perfect for any occasion. It can be served hot or cold and I must admit that I love it chilled, as it is so light and refreshing. If serving chilled, refrigerate at least two hours before service.
Note: this soup can be made well in advance or frozen for later use.

This dairy free version of the Panna Cotta is a nice vegan alternative. The panna cottas can be prepared up to 2 days in advance and will need 8 to 12 hours to fully set.
