We're kicking off this new column with our very own Market Manager Christine Hawks and Polenta Soup with Kale and Parmesan from Christopher Kimball's Milk Street. She says it was a great success at her family table, describing it as rustic and delicious.
Here's a few notes from Christine about how it came together:
"Humble ingredients make for a cozy, satisfying soup to chase away those winter chills. I would 100% make this recipe again. Instead of the canned cannellini beans (noted as an addition in the headnote of the recipe), I used dried Great Northern beans (soaked for about 8 hours) from Mud Run Farm and added them with 2 quarts of water and aromatics, including 4 big cloves of garlic from Foraged & Sown. I cooked the beans until just tender (about an hour after bringing the beans to a boil and then simmering, covered.)
Make it vegan by omitting the cheese or substituting the Parmesan for a vegan parmesan though the texture will be a little less creamy.
Pro Tip: If you're using dried beans in the soup, avoid salting the soup until the end. Salting the beans while they are cooking can make the beans tough rather than tender and creamy.
So, who's up next? We'd love to hear from you!
We did a new thing! White chocolate coated brittle blanks. We created one with imperial red hot candies that will only be here until Valentine’s Day and a cinnamon coated blank that will be here to stay.
Love is in the air and it smells like a cup of freshly brewed Silver Bridge Coffee. Our Raspberry Truffle is especially popular this time of year and is available in Whole Bean, Ground, Kcups, & Decaf. Pick it up on our website or at the farmers markets this weekend.
Who doesn’t love a good sample? Four Cheese Pizza for Breakfast!
