Tasteful Tuesday: Tomato Soup with Tortellini and Vegetables

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Another snowstorm is headed our way, and we couldn’t think of anything better than a hearty, delicious soup packed with vegetables and pasta to make and eat for the occasion. This is a meat-free soup, but you could certainly add Italian sausage or beef to make it even more filling. The following recipe makes about four servings.

What You’ll Need:

  • 14.5 ounces beef or chicken broth
  • 46 ounces (6 cups) tomato sauce
  • 28 ounces (3.5 cups) whole tomatoes, halved
  • 9 ounces cheese tortellini, uncooked
  • 1 cup zucchini, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup sweet corn
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • black pepper, oregano,
    and other preferred seasonings to taste
  • 1.5 cups fresh spinach
  • grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. In a large soup kettle over low-medium heat, combine broth, sauce and the tomatoes (including the juice).
  2. Add tortellini, zucchini, corn, garlic and seasonings. Cook for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add spinach and cook for at least ten more minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.

Tasteful Tuesday: Ginger-Molasses Bars

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

The molasses cookie – and molasses itself – is a historically favorite treat (and ingredient). We felt like our collection of recipes here on the blog really needed a molasses dessert, so here is a great ginger-molasses bar recipe.

What You’ll Need:

  • Molasses1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 ¼ cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup unsulfured molasses

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 10×15 inch rimmed baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper, and grease the pan and parchment. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt until combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar with a hand mixer or stand mixer. Beat on medium speed for several minutes, until smooth and creamy. Add egg, yolk, and molasses. Beat to combine, scraping the sides of the bowl if necessary. With the mixer on low, gradually add in the flour mixture, mixing just until combined (dough will be thick).
  4. Spread evenly onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through the cooking time. Place the baking sheet on a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares and enjoy.
