Vegetable soup is a great way to get a variety of vegetables in your diet, even in the middle of winter.  Yes, while fresh tomatoes and green beans always taste better from a summer harvest, many frozen vegetables work pretty well in soups, allowing for the making of a hearty, homemade, vegetable soup.  This soup is more stew like.  If you prefer a soupier consistency just use more vegetable broth, or add in some water.

This is a hearty vegetarian main dish, but you could also serve it with roast pork, chicken or turkey.  The fig jam works well with each of these meats.  Any leftover jam will keep in the refrigerator for a week.  It’s also great spread on crusty bread.

Caramelized Onion and Garlic Pizza with Frizzled Sage

This is one of the first dishes I attempted to recreate from a restaurant dish, at one of our favorite places to eat in North Beach, Café Divine.  You slowly caramelize the onion and garlic until soft, sweet, and golden.  It’s flavorful and offers a nice change from red pizza sauce pizza.  Parmigiano-Reggiano offers a nice salty balance for the sweet onions and garlic.  The frizzled sage adds a touch of green to this white pizza.

Thursday Throwback – Chicken Pot Pie

Here’s a classic, hearty winter dish.  Perfect for using leftover chicken and other vegetables left in the refrigerator.  It makes a lot, so it’s also great to make early in the week.  Roast a chicken on Saturday, make the pot pie on Sunday, and you have lunch and/or dinner for a few days during the week.
