I hope that your week is going well. I've been trying to keep up with my workouts but I doubt that anything will be going down today. Too much to do with limited amount of time. However, on yesterday my time was not too limited to get in a quick healthy & delicious recipe.
Some weeks ago, I was contacted by the people of Grimmway Farms/Cal-Organic or Bunny Luv (Don't you just love that name?) to review a product of theirs. After researching them, I discovered that I was already familiar with their line of produce. I'd actually purchased some of their produce before. So now I was eager to consciously buy, use and review their goods.
So I had to figure out which product I would feature. Since I'm a big fan of carrots, I decided to go with them. I received the coupon and went to scoop some up.
|Cal-Organic Farms carrots ..and green onions|
And look what I ended up with:
I totally enjoyed preparing this. Again, do note that I had been running around earlier and honestly didn't feel like going through the motions of preparing anything to eat. But this was so simple and took only a small amount of time & effort. The carrots were fresh and ready to go. Easy to peel and chop up. I honestly cannot recall a time that I've purchased this brand and experienced anything outside of good.
Anyhoo, I also picked up some of their green onions to top the soup of with. Yummm. And yes. Same fresh quality.
Oh! Before I forget, here's the recipe, which I got from EatLiveRun.com.
1 lb carrots, peeled and chopped
2 T minced fresh ginger
1 shallot, minced
2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp coriander
1 T olive oil
thinly sliced green onions for topping
Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the minced shallot and saute until tender, about five minutes. Add the ginger and saute for another three-four minutes. Can I just pipe tell you how wonderful this aroma is. Ooh!!
Add the chopped carrots, broth, coriander and salt and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes until carrots are tender. Carefully transfer to a blender and puree. Serve with thinly sliced green onions on top.
30 minutes Yes!
This was so easy to make and so delicious. The smell alone will make you salivate.
I think its a great accompaniment to the holidays or simply for the fall season.
And a big thanks to the folks at Grimmway Farms for even considering me for this. I'm very appreciative. And so is my stomach. ;) Thanks for the great organic products. Love!
