Super Stew

The Chef: Elizabeth

The Menu: Everything. All that was in the fridge and organic produce box went into the stew. Well, okay, almost everything. What we're looking at here are sweet potatoes, golden beets, and carrots roasted and then puréed, with steamed kale, sautéed leek, and diced tomatoes all stewed up together. Those with perceptive eyes will be able to spot some of the stuffed mushrooms from yesterday chopped in the salad. And that, as they say, is that.

The Goods: As you've probably guessed, we take words pretty seriously around here, what with trying to put them together in the best possible way all the time. To that effect, there are certain words that we tend not to say (remember "moist" from yesterday?). Inevitably, the word "super" comes up whenever anyone makes anything soupish for lunch, and try as we might, we just can't seem to get away from saying silly things like, "This soup is super." So, today we're not hiding from it. We're embracing it and putting it right in the title. Try and find the next time you see a bowl of soup or stew and don't think the word "super" now. You're welcome.

I love meals that are made up of a mix of different ingredients/flavors - that certainly IS a super stew!! :0)

The stew sure does look super! Kale in soup is my favorite.

What a great idea to put the stuffed mushrooms in the salad.

Sweet potatoes + carrots = heaven!
