It's a Wonderful Loaf

I’m

dreaming

of

a

white

Christmas.

And clearly it will remain a dream.

As there is no snow in sight.

I’ll settle for White Christmas Soup.

Sauteed apples, onions, and slow cooked cauliflower make this soup velvety smooth without adding any cream. Cozy up to the fire and enjoy this comforting winter warmer. 

WHITE CHRISTMAS SOUP

2 apples, peeled and chopped

1 large onion, sliced

1 tablespoon olive oil

12 cups (about 2-3 large heads) cauliflower, chopped

1 cup of water

1 bay leaf

2 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 1/2 teaspoons coriander

1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper

2-3 cups of water

Green onion, sliced (optional garnish)

In a large stockpot, add apples, onion and oil.

Saute until softened.

Add cauliflower, water, and bay leaf. Cover and cook over medium heat until cauliflower is super tender.

Transfer to a blender or food processor and process in batches until smooth.

Return to pot and add spices and salt.

Add 2-3 cups of water until desired consistency.

Ladle into soup bowls.

Garnish with sliced green onions.

I’m pretty sure this is going to be awesome with my

“It’s a Wonderful Loaf” Bread

A quick, whole grain beer bread sweetened with apples and molasses, then topped with oats and pumpkin seeds.

3 cups white whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup molasses

1/4 cup raw oats

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

Add molasses.

Pour in beer and stir just to combine.

Fold in chopped apple.

Pour into cast iron skillet or baking dish.

Sprinkle on the oats and pumpkin seeds.

Bake 45-50 minutes.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
