Quite cold  50F and rain by noon so David Lebovitz rendition of cabbage soup on deck and cornbread on the side. The bread will have lots of flat leaf parsley as opposed to the soup which will get either ancient poppyseed or caraway. Trying times.

Perspective is a marvelous thing. We've quite enjoyed getting up to that temperature a few times in the past week, and celebrated with light, summery meals. :)

Saw my first new blossoms of the spring yesterday (what more prosaic souls would describe as "weeds"). Also, while the lawns hereabouts are still in their winter drab, fresh green shoots - currently just a haze of green - are on the verge of asserting themselves and doubtless will do so over the next few days.

Update after you make it, will you? I saw the recipe and I think I have the ingredients. Are you making that parsley oil? It made me tired just reading it, and ordinarily cabbage soup doesn't have a big draw for me. Picture makes it look delicious, though.

Not the oil. I just scrounged some parsley outside growing among the weeds and snipped a good amount in the bowl I was eating ftom..Just me so I made a half recipe. . I like cooked cabbage.

We are in the opening days of the annual Spring asparagus harvest here in Washington State and two of the first dishes I always do are asparagus soups. We are lucky to get it within a day of harvest when it's at its best, and the stalks are what I call "medium" in size.  The larger the stalk, the less tender it seems to be.  This is an easy recipe for Miso Soup with Asparagus and Tofu.  I make my own dashi stock from scratch, but you can also use instant dashi powder reconstituted in hot water. Once the stock is made, you simply cook the asparagus quickly in the stock and add a block of tofu to the bowl.

Ingredients-

6 cups dashi stock (see our link for recipe)

5 tbsp. red miso

1 tsp. light soy sauce

8 oz. firm tofu, cut in 1"x2" chunks

12 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed

 

Instructions-

Cut the woody white ends off the asparagus and discard. Cut the tips of the asparagus and reserve. Using a vegetable peeler, trim the stalks of asparagus and cut into 1" pieces.

 

Pour the dashi into a stockpot over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer.  Turn the heat Stir in the red miso and soy sauce.  The miso will melt into the dashi in about 3 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Add the trimmed asparagus stalks to the miso soup and cook until the asparagus is tender, another 3 minutes.

 

Stir the miso soup and then ladle into serving bowls. Add one of the chunks of tofu to the center of the bowl. Place 2-3 of the asparagus spears on top of the tofu and serve the soup hot.

This is my recipe for Cream of Asparagus. It's not a silky, thinner cream soup but thick like a chowder. After I make it the first serving is always as a soup, but it's also good tossed in pasta, a warm dip for bread, and drizzled over omelet's.

Ingredients-

1 lb. fresh asparagus

1/2 cup chicken stock

3/4 cup cream

1 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon

1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

dash cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste

blanched asparagus tips and sliced asparagus for garnish

 

Instructions-

Heat 4 cups salted water to a boil in a heavy stockpot. Cut the white stalk ends off the end of the asparagus. Add the asparagus and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Remove the asparagus and drain. Reserve some of the asparagus tips and slice some asparagus to garnish the soup.

 

Cut the asparagus spears into 1" pieces and place in a blender. Add the chicken stock and start the blender on low speed. Add the half and half and continue to blend, then add the tarragon and lemon juice. Continue to puree the asparagus soup, adding more half and half to your desired consistency. Season the soup with cayenne pepper and salt and pepper.

 

Just before serving heat the cream of asparagus in a saucepan over medium heat. Ladle the cream of asparagus into bowls and garnish with asparagus tips and sliced asparagus.

Copied @heidihand made cabbage soup for supper.  With baking powder biscuits.  Soup had no poppyseed or caraway though.  Delicious.

It cooled off today so I finally got around to using my two bags of spinach to make spinach soup. I generally followed a recipe from the Pioneer Woman, but used a bit less milk and roux. Its basically creamed spinach soup, which isn’t a bad thing.
