  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes or until the veggies are beginning to brown.
  2. Add 1/4 cup broth to the pot and stir scraping up any brown bits. Cook for a minute or so to reduce slightly.
  3. Add 3-1/2 cups of stock, the allspice, and chipotle powder to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 - 15 minutes.
  4. While the stock simmers, blanch the broccoli. Dump the broccoli into a pot of salted boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Immediately remove the broccoli and submerge in a bowl of ice water. Drain well and set aside.
  5. Once the stock mixture starts smelling wonderful, add the evaporated milk and the buttermilk. Shake together the remaining 1/4 cup of stock and the flour. Slowly pour it into the soup stirring constantly. Continue to stir until it thickens.
  6. Add the broccoli, corn, Worcestershire Sauce and Chipotle Tabasco. Cook for several minutes.
  7. Over low heat, stir in the cheese, continuing to stir until it is melted. Give it a taste and adjust any seasoning. Serve.

Stir Fried Vegetables with Soba Noodles

DIGITAL CAMERA This beautiful plate of vegetables was the beginning of a side dish that embraced the flavors of Asia.

They were joined by Soba Noodles, a Japanese favorite. Made of Buckwheat, they have an earthy taste that holds up to spicy and ┬áhearty flavors alike. DIGITAL CAMERAI created this as a side dish, that complemented some Asian marinated chicken thighs. This is another side dish that could easily be a main dish with or without the addition of protein. As with many of my recipes, you can take all of the liberties that you want… Spices, vegetables, it’s all up to you.

  1. Cook noodles following the package directions. This will only take 3 or 4 minutes. Drain the noodles and rinse with cold water. These can be set aside, but better yet, cook them while the vegetables are cooking.
  2. Heat a large fry pan over high heat. Add the canola oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the broccoli and toss and cook for 2 minutes or so.
  3. Add the carrots and yellow onions and cook for about another 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper and the Thai chili to the pan and cook for a couple of more minutes.
  4. Mix the stock, peanut butter, and hoisin sauce together. Pour into the pan and toss to combine. Allow to simmer for several minutes.
  5. Add the cooked and drained noodles and the green onions, tossing everything to coat. Simmer for 3 - 4 minutes until everything is hot.
  6. Serve it as is for a main dish or pair it with the protein of your choice.
