Christmastime Mushroom Soup

Traditionally made with dried mushrooms, this fresher take on the classic Russian Christmastime soup comes together quickly and deliciously. Often served as part of the meatless Russian Christmas Eve Hold Supper, this soup will satisfy both vegetarians and carnivores around your table. Rather than thickening with flour, this recipe utilizes a bit of sour cream to add a decadent finish to the soup without weighing you down. Serve this at your holiday meal for a flavorful and satisfying starter.

Challah Knots

These easy challah knots are perfect for celebrating Hanukkah- but they’re so delicious, I think you’ll find an excuse to make them all year long. You can also make a double batch and freeze them for later use. Doughy, eggy, and golden brown- these are sure to be a fast favorite.

Check out the easy recipe I used here. I like sprinkling over a little Maldon sea salt after the egg wash and before baking for an extra salty kick. 

Winter Wellness Bowls with Honey Tahini Dressing

Warming spices and a creamy honey tahini dressing make these winter wellness bowls feel like a treat. Broccoli and cauliflower are rich in vitamin C, especially important in the colder months. They also improve digestion and aid in the body’s detoxification process. Mushrooms provide an excellent plant based source of protein, and also offer important antioxidants and minerals. Tahini, made from ground sesame seeds, is a great plant based source of calcium, important for strengthening bones. All these components keep well, so make a double batch and enjoy healthy meals all week long.
