Spicy Vegetable Blah-ness
I strongly dislike starting December with a mediocre recipe. I’m a sucker for soup, but something about this didn’t appeal to me.
The combination of spices sounded interesting (cumin seeds and chili flakes), and it even called for fresh ginger! But somewhere between the blended sweet potatoes and chickpeas, and the added spinach, it fell flat. Luckily, I made cornbread muffins to go with the soup, and they salvaged the meal. The soup didn’t taste as bland with the crumbled muffins in it 🙂
Lame as this post (and soup) has been, there are exciting things on the horizon! Two of my friends have agreed to let me showcase their favorite recipe on Feature Friday! I’m also hoping to get a step-by-step “how to” from mom on her delicious spanish tortilla. It’s all very exciting and I look forward to sharing it with you!
Here’s to December, and to the end of 2010!
