Tuscan White Beans and Winter Greens Soup

Tuscan white bean and greens soup

This rustic white bean soup is stockless and gets its goodness and oomph from the beans’ own cooking liquid. Half a dozen sage leaves impart an amazing amount of flavor. It’s just the thing for cooler weather, costs two bucks all told and feeds six. And you’ll have done it yourself. Beans may be cooked a day ahead, if that reduces your anxiety. Plan your life accordingly. more→

Hot-and-Sour Soup

This recipe starts off as a simple, aromatic broth that can be served as is, but by adding chiles and lime juice, the dish becomes a hot-and-sour soup. As with other Southeast Asian cuisines, such as Burmese, Cambodian, Laotian, and Thai, lemongrass and galangal are often used in aromatic soups. The application of these herbs goes beyond cooking, as they are widely used in folk remedies. Both lemongrass and galangal have medicinal properties as antibacterials and tonics to aid indigestion.
