Being Green Can Be Delicious: Purée of Parsnip & Celeriac Soup.

Being green doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor or enjoyment of your meals. It does mean knowing where your foods comes from, and knowing how best to unlock your food’s power to nourish & please discerning, sustainability minded family members & guests.

Oven roasting at 375F unlocks the flavor.

First, get good vegetables as your base for a weekday soup & salad meal. Organic, from a local farmers’ market is best. Roast at 375F in cast iron, such as Lodge, which is made in the USA, for about an hour, until the smells emanating from the oven tell you it is time.
