Creamy kale Soup topped with Kale Chips
This is a great soup to serve as a first course if you want to really impress company! The delightfully creamy soup is topped with an unusual soup topper- kale chips. They add a slight crispness in every bite that brings this soup to a whole new level! The soup can be prepared a couple of days in advance, store in an airtight container in the fridge. Just before serving heat the soup and top with the kale chips. If you prefer you can also pass around the chips and allow guests to top their own bowls as they please.
Mini Pumpkin and Goat Cheese Tarts
For this recipe I made 6 mini tarts using these adorable 5 inch molds that I bought! It makes a really nice presentation for an appetizer or light lunch. If you prefer however you can also make one large (12 inch) tart instead.
Roasted Tomato and Poblano Soup
Roasting the tomatoes before processing them in the soup brings out their natural sweetness and bold flavours. This is a great soup to make in summer when you can buy big boxes of fresh tomatoes in the farmer’s markets for very little money. In this version of the soup I added poblano peppers for a touch of earthy heat. This soup is a real winner!
