Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata

February 17 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata I love fennel, always, but especially during this time of year, when cravings for spring start coming on strong. Fennel’s one-of-a-kind anise flavor, brightness, and crunch really hit the spot, while I dream of verdant spring produce. It’s also citrus season, and simple mandolined fennel and blood orange salads are a favorite (something like this salad, plus segmented or sliced orange, and often without the beans). Fennel is delicious cooked, too – caramelized sauteed fennel, fennel gratin, etc. We also love it in soups, and this week’s recipe is a super simple lentil soup, centered around fennel. We use fennel seeds and bulbs in the soup, and even include the greens from the fennel tops in gremolata, for topping the soup. When it comes to very simple dishes like this one, it’s all about the accompaniments, which is where the gremolata comes in. It’s a condiment kind of similar to Italian salsa verde but without oil, made with just chopped parsley, garlic, and lemon zest. It’s delicious spooned over pretty much any savory fare. That, plus maybe some good, crusty bread, and you’re in for a very cozy meal with this soup. Hope you’ll give it a try! P.S. We just revived our Youtube Channel! Come and stay for simple, seasonal, plant-based cooking and other fun kitchen activities. Our very first video back happens to show you exactly how to make an orange and fennel salad, in case you’re as obsessed with fennel as we are. Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 1 tablespoon fennel seeds 1 large or 2 medium fennel bulbs olive oil sea salt 1 yellow onion, diced small 1 medium carrot, diced small 1 celery stalk, diced small 6 garlic cloves, minced, divided freshly ground black pepper 1 cup brown or French lentils, rinsed 2 bay leaves zest and juice from 1 lemon leaves from 1 small bunch parsley, finely chopped Instructions Toast the fennel seeds in a dry skillet on medium high heat until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Watch closely so as not to burn. Let cool slightly and grind the seeds in a mortar and pestle, spice grinder, or a dedicated coffee grinder. Cut the stalks off the fennel, pick off the tender fronds and set them aside for later. Discard the stalks or save to use for vegetable broth or even for juicing. Cut the fennel into wedges. Heat a soup pot over medium heat and add enough oil to generously coat the bottom. Add the fennel wedges and sprinkle them with salt. Let the fennel caramelize and brown for 3-4 minutes, until the undersides are golden, then flip and repeat on the other side. Transfer the fennel to a plate or bowl for now. Add the onion, carrot, and celery to the pot, along with a pinch of salt. Saute over medium low heat, until the vegetables are soft but not browned, about 10-15 minutes. Add about 5 garlic cloves worth of minced garlic (saving 1 minced clove for the gremolata), ground fennel seeds, and black pepper to taste, stir around until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the fennel wedges, lentils, bay leaves, 6 cups of water, and more salt to taste. Bring to a simmer and simmer, covered, until the lentils and fennel are tender. Brown lentils usually cook in 15-20 minutes, while French lentils take a bit longer, 20-25 minutes. No matter which lentils youre using, start tasting them at 15 minutes to keep them from getting mushy. Once the soup is done, turn off the heat and add the lemon juice. Discard the bay leaves. Taste for salt and pepper, and adjust if needed. While the soup is cooking, make the gremolata. Finely chop the tender fronds reserved from the fennel. In a small bowl, combine the fennel fronds, lemon zest, parsley, and the remaining minced garlic (1 clove). Mix to combine. Serve the soup warm, garnished with the gremolata. 3.5.3226 The post Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Label Lingo: Plant-Based Diet vs. Vegan Diet

November 6 2020 Vegetarian Times 

Plant-based products have never been hotter. From grocery store aisles to restaurant menus, the term plant-based is everywhere these days. Meanwhile, vegan has become so mainstream that it seems like every day, you hear about another celebrity or athlete going vegan. So does plant-based mean vegan and vice versa? Its hard enough reading labels on food products let alone figuring out the difference between these terms, especially when you throw whole food in front of plant-based. While they do have things in common, there are differences between these labels. Experts untangle them below. Related: 5 Plant-Based Subscription Meal Kits Guaranteed to Make Your Taste Buds Happy Plant-Based Versus Vegan As the name implies, plant-based dieters are focused on increasing the amount of plant-based food sources in their meals. This means more fruits, vegetables, legumes, tubers, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains. Although a person on a plant-based diet may still consume foods with animal products and/­­or byproducts, the ratio of plant-based sources increases while foods from animal and seafood sources are minimized, says Dan Nguyen, R.D.N., registered dietitian and nutritionist at HelloFresh. Of course, the based part of plant-based can be confusing, namely because it has wide-ranging meanings. For some, it could indicate that theyre eating 51 percent of their diet from plants while others might be closer to 90 or 95 percent. They can both be called plant-based eaters, but only if youre eating 100 percent plants can you say that youre a whole-food, plant-based eater, says Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., director of nutrition education for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Vegan, on the other hand, means that this person eats zero animal products. That translates into no meat, poultry, dairy, seafood, or any animal byproducts. Yet vegan extends beyond the diet, as it also affects what people wear and what purchases they make. According to the Vegan Society, vegan is defined as a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practicable--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms, it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals. Related: Tofu: The Unsung Hero of Coronavirus-Related Meat Shortages Why Plant-Based and Vegan Labels Arent a Health Halo Eating more plants is the key to better health and even longer life, according to numerous studies. Plants are a powerhouse of fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients, Nguyen says. By eating more plants and fewer animals, youll get more of these valuable nutrients. As a result, you might experience lower blood sugar, LDL (or bad) cholesterol, and blood pressure, to name a few beneficial side effects. Plus, eating fewer animal foods and seafood will help decrease your carbon footprint, which is a win for the planet. Yet dont get duped into thinking that foods labeled plant-based or vegan are automatically healthy. The surprise? Many of these foods are still highly processed. Foods marketed as plant-based may not necessarily be healthy or contain many whole plant foods, Nguyen says. These foods can be high in fat, sugar and/­­or sodium and could still make you sick, putting you at greater risk for chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Thats true even if youre a junk food vegan who primarily eats processed vegan food. Just taking animal products out of your diet doesnt guarantee that youll be healthier, as you may not be getting the fiber and nutrients you need, Levin says. Related: Less Meat, Less Problems How to eat healthy, no matter whether youre plant-based or vegan While going plant-based, more so vegan because youre eliminating all animal products, is an admirable first step, it shouldnt be your end step if youre prioritizing health, Levin says. Instead, think about moving as close as you can to a 100 percent whole-food diet. To get there, Levin suggests reading food labels and keying in on fiber. Fiber is often a good indicator of how processed the product is, she says. If you dont see much fiber in a food, chances are its on the low end of the healthy food scale. Then check the added sugar and the ingredient list in general. If you see ingredients you dont know how to pronounce, you should probably avoid putting that food in your cart, Levin says.

10 Reasons Why You Need To Eat More Plant Proteins

July 1 2020 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Although veganism is one of the in things right now, there are much better reasons to eat more plant proteins than following a trend. Just ask the vegans who went meat-free out of compassion for animals, or those who did it for health reasons. We can think of 10 great reasons why you should up your intake of plant proteins. Whether youre looking for motivation to embrace a plant-based diet or you want confirmation that youve made the right dietary decision, you will find it below. 1. Plant Protein Is Animal-Friendly One of the best reasons to adopt a plant-based diet is that its the compassionate choice. For many people, the idea of veganism begins and ends with the lack of slaughtering animals, but it really goes much deeper than that. Those same people may picture modern farms as seen in childrens story books - picturesque places filled with smiley daisies, happy cows, and friendly chickens. According to the ASPCA, the sad truth is that 95% of Americas farm animals live on factory farms. They are effectively meat factories, and theyre as depressing as they sound. Those animals live short, miserable lives, often are subjected to cruel treatment, and ultimately […] The post 10 Reasons Why You Need To Eat More Plant Proteins appeared first on HappyCow.

Earl Gray Chai Pancakes

January 27 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Earl Gray Chai Pancakes Makes 6 big pancakes These pancakes have it all! Masala chai spices like ginger, cardamom and black pepper. And although Ive made chai spiced pancakes before, this time I thought of adding actual tea. Like wow, how brilliant, since “tea” is what chai is. You can use any black tea you like. I used Earl Gray, which came through with its citrus-y notes. Tea is a difficult flavor to infuse so I made a really super concentrated cuppa. Then I tossed a couple of star anise pods into the steeping tea as well, because that is one of those flavors that can be harder to incorporate into chai spiced recipes, what with those big old pods. So the steeping comes in real handy in multiple ways. It also helps to add the turmeric into the infusion to bloom bright and golden. The final results is a nicely spiced pancake and you can actually taste the tea, too. So add these to your pancake repertoire next time you are craving everything. Recipe notes: ~ I have a lot of pancake tips all over the site, but Im not sure Ive ever written this one: If your pancakes arent cooking through, try covering them while cooking. ~ I love cooking pancakes in refined coconut oil! So buttery and yum. But you can cook in oil or vegan butter as well. I recommend Miyoko’s Butter for topping them, too. Ingredients Boiling water 3 earl gray tea bags 2 star anise pods 1/­­2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1 1/­­2 cups all purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 3/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­8 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 3/­­4 cup unsweetened soy milk (or vegan milk of choice) 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 3 tablespoons safflower oil (or any neutral tasting oil) 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Refined coconut oil for cooking Directions Place 3 black tea bags in a large mug along with star anise pods. Pour water over tea and let steep for 20 minutes or so. It should be cool enough to use by then. Measure out one cup of liquid.  In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center. Measure the milk into a measuring cup. Add the vinegar to the milk and let curdle a minute. Add the milk mixture, 1 cup of tea mixture, safflower oil and vanilla to the well. Stir just until incorporated and no large clumps of flour are left.  Preheat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat and let the batter rest for 10 minutes. Lightly coat the pan in coconut oil. Add 1/­­3 cup of batter for each pancake, and cook for about 4 minutes, until puffy, bubbly and matte. Flip the pancakes, adding a new coat of oil to the pan, and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes or so.  Transfer pancakes to a large plate covered with tin foil until ready to serve. To reheat, place pancakes on a baking sheet covered with tin foil in a 300 F degree oven for 5 minutes or so.
