Eating Real Recipes: Grilled Asparagus and Sweet Onion Soup

 

April through early June is generally the prime time for harvesting the asparagus variety grown in many CSA gardens.  This year’s warmer temperatures, however, brought out an early crop with the last of the stalks going to seed this past week.  That means this year’s asparagus harvest is over, and only those of us who worked the farm throughout the past couple of months got in on the sweet goodness of freshly picked asparagus.  I love it grilled, but I wanted to make something special to honor my last fresh stalks.  I found a couple of asparagus soup recipes that caught my eye, so I decided to combine the best of both.  What resulted was a soup made from grilled asparagus that was so incredibly delicious I’m already dreaming of next year’s crop!

Eating Real Recipes: Kung Pao Lettuce Wraps

Last winter a friend shared his mother’s traditional kung pao recipe, and I loved making the authentic spicy dish every chance I could. Being an avid label reader now, I was stopped in my tracks one afternoon while preparing the ingredients. Soy sauce, at least the brand in my refrigerator, has all kinds of crazy stuff in it: hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup, lactic acid, dextrose, caramel color, potassium sorbate.

I was appalled and tossed the sauce, but I was unsure how I was going to recreate this savory, spicy meal without it. What ensued was an experiment of mixing and tasting until I finally found a concoction which tantalized my taste buds without trampling on my real food sensibilities. The outcome was the following recipe, now a staple in our home. We make a batch or two (or three!) on the weekend, vacuum seal it into portions, and store it in the freezer. The result is homemade real food frozen dinners minus the ridiculous amounts of sodium and other nonsense.
