Ten Vegetable Soup
With Ten Vegetable Soup, you combine terrific-tasting and healthy carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, canned tomatoes, leek, onion, Swiss chard, a potato and parsley. Tossing them all into a pot takes less than 30 minutes. The result is enough to eat for several days — and it also freezes nicely.

Makes 10 servings. Per serving: 1 cup


2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 cups chopped green cabbage, quartered and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips (or purchase already shredded)
1 cup cauliflower florets, 1-inch pieces
1 medium leek, sliced, use white and 1-inch of light green part
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 medium celery stalk, chopped
1 (14.5-oz.) can no salt added diced tomatoes
4 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 medium yellow-fleshed potato, diced
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 Tbsp. dried thyme
1 1/2 packed cups Swiss chard or spinach, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne, optional
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional


1 – In large Dutch oven or heavy soup pot with tight-fitting cover, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, cauliflower, leek, onion, carrot and celery and stir to coat them with oil. Cook until cabbage is limp and onion translucent, 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook gently until vegetables release their juices, about 8 minutes.
2 – Add tomatoes with their liquid, broth, potato, parsley and thyme. Increase heat to medium-high until liquid boils, then cover, reduce heat, and simmer soup for 10 minutes. Add Swiss chard and simmer for 10 minutes. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper; let sit for 15 minutes before serving. If desired refrigerate for up to 4 days, reheating in covered pot over medium heat. Or divide cooled soup among resealable freezer bags and freeze. This soup keeps in freezer for up to 2 months.

One of America’s Favorites – New England Boiled Dinner

August 28, 2017 at 5:34 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

New England boiled dinner is the basis of a traditional New England meal, consisting of corned beef or a smoked “picnic ham” shoulder, with cabbage and added vegetable items, often including potato, rutabaga, parsnip, carrot, white turnip, and onion. With a beef roast, this meal is often known simply as corned beef and cabbage. A similar Newfoundland dish is called a Jiggs dinner.

New England boiled dinner

New England boiled dinner is a traditional meal on St. Patrick’s Day. Ireland produced a significant amount of the corned beef in the Atlantic trade from local cattle and salt imported from the Iberian Peninsula and southwestern France. Coastal cities, such as Dublin, Belfast, and Cork, created vast beef curing and packing industries, with Cork producing half of Ireland’s annual beef exports in 1668. Most of the people of Ireland during this period consumed little of the meat produced, in either fresh or salted form, due to its prohibitive cost. In the colonies the product was looked upon with disdain due to its association with poverty and slavery.

Corned beef was used as a substitute for bacon by Irish-American immigrants in the late 19th century. Corned beef and cabbage is the Irish-American variant of the original Irish dish of bacon and cabbage.

A “picnic ham” shoulder consists of the cured and smoked primal pork shoulder, which is cut from the lower portion of a hog’s foreleg still containing the arm and shank bones. The meat is then boiled with root vegetables for several hours or until it is tender. The resulting meat does not taste similar to a traditional ham.

Corned beef is prepared before the actual cooking of the meal by seasoning a cut of beef with salt (large grains of salt were known as corns) and spices and the natural meat juices. This meat is then placed whole, like a rump or pot roast into a crock pot, which in olden times was a ceramic pot over a fire, filled with cabbage and carrots, and, when available, red potatoes. However, after Luther Burbank’s alteration of potatoes, the potatoes were chopped when placed in the pot. Rutabaga or turnips are also common ingredients. This meal can be left in a crock pot all day but must be kept in the naturally humid environment of cooking meat. Corned beef and cabbage is often served as a whole meal.

Smoked shoulder is an exceptionally salty cut of meat. Two different methods of preparation are commonly used to decrease the amount of salt in the meat. In the first method, the meat is placed in a pot and soaked in a refrigerated cold water bath for one day prior to cooking. During the soak, the water is changed several times. The pot of meat and water is then boiled on the stovetop until the meat is tender. In the second method, the meat is placed in cold water and brought to a boil. The boiling water is then poured off, replaced with fresh cold water, and the ham is brought to a boil again. This process can be repeated several times, as deemed appropriate by the chef, before the meat is allowed to cook. A combination of both methods is also acceptable. This is a very easy meal to cook, as the salt and flavor of the meat require no additional seasonings. The ham generally must boil for several hours until it is ready to eat. The vegetables are placed in the pot and boiled with the meat; however, some chefs prefer to place them in the ham’s water after the meat has been removed to avoid overcooking.

Common condiments include horseradish, mustard, and cider vinegar.
