Honeyed Carrot Soup with Smoked Trout


    Honeyed Carrot Soup with Smoked Trout

    Mix it up and sub half the carrots for parsnip or celery root—check for what’s fresh at your local farmers’ market. It’s also great without the fish if you want to keep it vegetarian, or top with grated aged cheddar cheese or crumbled goat feta.


    4 cups (1 L) low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
    2 cups (500 mL) water
    4 cups (1 L) thinly sliced carrots (about 6 medium carrots)
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    3 fresh thyme sprigs
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) honey
    1 cup (250 mL) plain Greek yogurt
    1/3 cup (80 mL) coarsely chopped fresh dill
    1 cup (250 mL) flaked smoked trout

    In stockpot, stir broth with water, carrots, garlic, thyme, and honey. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium. Partially cover and simmer until carrots are tender, 15 minutes.

    Remove from heat, uncover, and let stand for 5 minutes. Add yogurt and dill. Using hand blender, blitz just until broken up but not entirely puréed.

    Spoon into bowls, then crumble in trout.

    Serves 4.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
