Cooking Tip

Bean Cookin' 101 -

Soak: Soaking beans before cooking helps to remove some of those indigestible sugars that cause flatulence. There are two simple ways to get the job done:

Regular soak: Put beans into a large bowl and cover with 2 to 3 inches of cool, clean water. Set aside at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight; drain well.

Quick soak: Put beans into a large pot and cover with 2 to 3 inches of cool, clean water. Bring to a boil then boil briskly for 2 to 3 minutes. Cover and set aside off of the heat for 1 hour; drain well.

The Power of Chicken Soup!

Warm, soothing - and healing. Grandmothers the world over have always known it, and now health experts agree: This dish is more than just delicious! When hot compresses, pills, and steam baths fail, the contents of a bubbling, herb-scented stockpot always seem to work wonders. With every sip of soul-stirring chicken soup, coughs subside, congestion is miraculously eased, and bellies reluctant to take other forms of nourishment happily accept the soothing broth.

Chicken Soup

Who would question the power of chicken soup, a dish that, thanks to the cure-all recipes of bubbes everywhere, has earned the nickname "Jewish penicillin"? The 11th-century doctor Avicenna and the 12th-century philosopher and physician Maimonides touted the soup's healing properties in their writings. But for a long time, there was little medical evidence to back up the soup's reputation. That has changed in recent years, as scientists have undertaken research into the brawn behind the bowl.

Outside the lab, the dish has a more compelling factor working in its favor: generosity of spirit. Chicken soup is love made visible. It's power may lie in letting a sick person know that they matter to someone who cares enough to make them something nourishing and comforting with their own hands. Classic Chicken Soup - everyone has a personal spin on the recipe, but rarely have so few ingredients added up to so much comfort. You and those you feed are sure to feel better in a whole host of ways :)

"It's a comforting sort of thing to have, said Christopher Robin."
~ House at Pooh Corner, A.A. Milne

Bowls of Goodness!

Every culture has its own version of the hearty bowl of soup. Earthy and elemental, they're one-pot main courses loaded with deep, transcendent flavor. Making great soup doesn't have to be difficult. The key is building a strong foundation, or "flavor base," that infuses and enriches the finished dish. The starting point is neither the usual chicken stock nor any type of meat. Instead, it's the variety of ingredients: spices, aromatics, and vegetables - and cooking techniques applied to them. The resulting flavor profiles are as delicious as they are diverse - a full meal in a single bowl!

Pasta e Fagioli

Originally thought to hail from Sicily, Pasta e Fagioli is a classic soup served all over Italy and varies slightly from region to region. Hearty with pasta and beans, yet light-tasting and fresh, it's a perfect soup any time of year.

"Grilled cheese and tomato soup is the ultimate confort meal."
