  • Soupalooza: Minestrone a melting pot for summer veggies Aug 27, 2014 5:45 AM
    Sometimes she can't help herself. M. Eileen Brown gets overwhelmed by the lovely fresh produce at the farmers market and ends up buying more than she can possibly cook. Instead of letting the tomatoes and greenbeans rot on the counter (again) she turned to Alice Waters for a soupy solution.

     
  • Soupalooza: Zucchini soup so good you'll look forward to more zucchini Jul 30, 2014 5:32 PM
    Just when you think you can't handle any more zucchini comes a recipe that will have you roaming the neighborhood looking for squash ready for harvest. M. Eileen Brown's chowdery Mexican Zucchini Soup is that recipe.

     
  • Soupalooza: A cold soup that starts on a hot grill Jun 24, 2014 5:30 AM
    This recipe for Grilled Gazpacho adds just the right amount of smoke to the taste of the tomatoes, onions and red peppers. It’s also a great way to make gazpacho in early summer when the tomatoes aren’t nearly as tasty as they will be later on.

  • Soupalooza: Vegetable-rich broth gives your body a spring cleaning Apr 30, 2014 5:30 AM
    Looking forward to spring M. Eileen Brown put the winter clothes away, removed the down comforter from the bed, washed the windows and went on a program to eat more fruits and vegetables. Spring cleaning, inside and out, was her thinking. In her drive to pump up her intake of fruits and veggies she came across the recipe for Bieler’s Broth.

     
  • Walnut paste gives mushroom soup creaminess sans cholesterol Mar 26, 2014 6:08 AM
    M. Eileen Brown has a thing for cream soups. Really, who among us doesn't?! Yet enjoying cream soups often leads to guilt over the fat, calories and cholesterol in each spoonful. Eileen found toasted walnuts ground to a paste and stirred into soup add rich, creamy texture without an ounce of remorse.

     
  • Soupalooza: Concocting this Curried Carrot Soup a happy convergence Feb 26, 2014 5:45 AM
    It may be in the zeitgeist, but every cookbook, magazine or website I have been on lately features a recipe for Curried Carrot Soup. So I decided to give in and whip up a batch of the spicy orange concoction.

     
  • Soupalooza: Super versatile lentils a super food Jan 29, 2014 5:30 AM
    While lentils come in a variety of colors, M. Eileen Brown is partial to red lentils, which seems to be the nuttiest in terms of flavor. However, they are not always the easiest to find so feel free to substitute whatever lentils you have on hand or come across at the store for Red Lentil Soup with Cilantro Pesto and Lemon.

     
  • Soupalooza: Roasted red pepper soup a festive addition to winter menus Dec 22, 2013 12:07 PM
    Roasted red pepper soup with Christmas tree-shaped pesto croutons is about as festive as you can get in the soup world.

  • Soupalooza: Don't be scared off by cooking with dried beans Oct 29, 2013 1:26 PM
    When it comes to cooking with dried beans should you soak, or not? That's the question M. Eileen Brown faced when tackling a batch of black bean chili. "For something so ubiquitous and so elemental, cooking dried beans seems to stir up all kinds of opinions, controversies and, for me, angst," she writes.

     
  • Soupalooza: Learning to root for roots Sep 25, 2013 6:26 AM
    The root of the matter, if you will pardon the pun, is that I know very little about root vegetables. Oh, sure, I know carrots, potatoes and beets, but celery root? No idea. Salsify? Not a clue. On a recent trip to the grocery store, I even mixed up turnips and parsnips. I wouldn't know a rutabaga if you conked me on the head with it.

     
  • Finding happiness in a bowl of soup Aug 27, 2013 1:00 PM
    What's not to like about a soup called Happiness Soup. The soup, says M. Eileen Brown, is a great late summer-early fall recipe, especially if you have a garden filled with yellow squash. But it's the turmeric that breaks this recipe out of the ordinary. According to a recent article in Psychology Today, turmeric contains something called curcumin, a molecule with antidepressant effects.

     
  • Soupalooza: Farmers market bounty turns into hearty soup Jul 31, 2013 11:02 AM
    What do you do when you overbuy at the farmers market? When it's too hot to grill, M. Eileen Brown cranks up the A/C and heads into the kitchen to make soup. Her latest batch was a corn-based soup chock full of green beans, squash and peppers.

     
  • Soupalooza: Warming up to cold soups Jun 26, 2013 4:02 PM
    Cold fruit soup, I have to admit, doesn't do much for me. If I want a smoothie, I can happily slurp my sugary cold sweetness through a straw. Who wants to politely sip something that resembles a Slurpee with a spoon? And therein lies the problem with cold fruit soups. Are they dessert or an entree? How sweet should they be? When do you serve them?

     
  • Soupalooza: Cold pea soup you'll eat all up May 28, 2013 11:25 AM
    OK, OK, so I know what you're thinking. Chilled cream of snap pea soup? Really? Creamed cold pea soup with Marmite? Has Soupalooza gone mad? Well, how about we give it a French name? Mangetout soupe sounds much better, doesn't? (Try it with a French accent -- go on!)

     
  • Soupalooza: Mushroom Barley Soup brings a flood of good memories Apr 25, 2013 11:09 AM
    M. Eileen Brown finds a beloved recipe for Mushroom Barley Soup among her overflowing recipe box. This recipe from a dear friend and former co-worker brings back memories of her whole cooking history, family and friendships.

     
  • Favorite recipe yields different result. What's up with that? Mar 28, 2013 9:11 AM
    Everyone has their favorite go-to recipe, right? It's the one that's easy, tasty and, most importantly, surefire. You can make it in your sleep and it never varies. My favorite "no worry" recipe is one that I tore out of a food magazine somewhere near the time "Walk Like an Egyptian" was on the airwaves.

     
  • Soupalooza: Hot and sour soup cures what ails you Feb 25, 2013 4:41 PM
    Hot and Sour Soup is the Asian version of chicken noodle soup — the antidote to all that ails you.

The lightly cooked vegetables offer fiber, vitamins and minerals, but that's just the start.

    I don't know about you, but February requires an extra bit of effort on my part in order to maintain even a semblance of good cheer. Come February my spirits need a little bolstering. The perfect antidote to my winter of discontent is a nice decadent bowl of cioppino.

    Can the gunk collected from the bottom of beer barrels set you straight after a night of too much of said beer, or wine or spirits? According to M. Eileen Brown Marmite, that yeasty paste, adds the right balance of nutrients to green bean soup and provides a delicious hangover cure.
