Broccoli Cauliflower Soup with Dubliner Cheese
Dubliner is a robust aged cow’s milk cheese from West Cork, Ireland with a texture similar to a cheddar. It has nutty, sharp, sweet flavors that come from the milk of Irish grass-fed cows.
Here, the ubiquitous broccoli cheese soup is taken to another level – adding another vegetable profile – cauliflower, and creamy earthy white beans plus Irish cheese for a St. Paddy’s Day celebration!
The silky smooth texture is achieved by the action of a high-performance blender. It is that velvety texture that makes the soup so extraordinary. It could easily be served naked…
…but the blank green canvas begs for something jazzy. Queue up a range of garnishes such as micro greens, super-thin radish, chili oil, shredded cheese, and even a creamy shamrock! Erin go bragh.

Broccoli and White Bean Soup
Tempeh Croutons, Microgreens
I’ve got a corned beef brisket cooking on the stove top right now, but that won’t be ready in time to share with you for St. Patrick’s Day dinner. I do, however, have a gorgeous striking spring-green soup here.
It’s vibrant and velvety and vegan. It screams of springtime with its verdant color and micro purple princess flowers which have a delicate texture and mild green pepper flavor. Tempeh croutons add just the right amount of crunch and earthiness.
This Broccoli and White Bean Soup is hearty enough to be served as a satisfying lunchtime meal, one that is healthy and happy… chock-full of protein, veggies, and fiber.

Curried Broccoli Latkes with Carrot, Scallion & Dried Cranberry
Preserved Meyer Lemon Sour Cream
May you be strengthened by tradition,
Warmed by the Hanukkah lights,
And may your life be touched with miracles.
We eat foods fried in olive oil to commemorate the ancient miracle that occurred in the second century BCE. A jug of olive oil, which held enough oil to last for one day, burned for eight when the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated.
I make latkes every Hanukkah. And they are always a little different. Almost always the base is potato, but not this year. 5773 is the year of the broccoli latke!
