More Fall Comfort Food...

Taking the dogs for a walk, I noticed this little maple tree in the park...

All these colors  from just one branch of one maple tree...

Going for walks in the park stimulates my appetite - especially for soup...

Here's a recipe inspired by a recipe for "Moroccan Carrot Soup" from the latest edition of Mary Jane's Farm magazine...


3 cups of peeled chopped carrots
2 cups of peeled chopped parsnips
2 medium size chopped peeled onions
4-5 peeled chopped garlic cloves
1 cup of chopped parsley
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tspn. Ground Cumin
1/2 tspn Ground allspice
6 cups of Vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion and garlic in 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
After 5 mins. add carrots and parsnips.
Add broth, bring to boil and cook for 20 minutes or so, till the veggies are soft.
Stir in parsley, lemon juice, cumin, and allspice.

Puree with a hand held blender (I don't have one so I used my Vitamix.)
Add salt and pepper to taste...

Quick, easy and sooooooo tasty...
