Flipping the switch to "Fall"

Is there a switch located in the skies above the Rogue Valley? One that Mother Natures flips at will? Well, she flipped the switch to Fall on Friday after a beautiful 90 degree Thursday that still had us in light clothes and open-toed shoes! But that is typical Rogue Valley weather, the switch gets flipped all the time, unexpectedly, and we have just learned over the years to always be prepared!

So in keeping with Mother Nature's desire to force Fall upon us with a mere flip of a switch... here is as easy Vegetable Soup recipe requested by my dear mother-in-law Jean. As with most (if not all) soups, make it ahead, it is always better the second day.

Easy Vegetable Soup
This soup combines tasty vegetables with hints of smoke from the paprika. The honey melds all of the flavors and minimal fat makes this soup healthy and delicious!

2 tblsp butter
2 tblsp olive oil
1/2 cup diced sweet onion
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 cup zucchini, diced
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
4 cups vegetable broth
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tblsp honey
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp smoked paprika

In a large (3 qt) stockpot, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat. Saute onion, carrot, celery, garlic and mushrooms until onions start to brown. Add tomatoes, broth, honey, soy sauce and spices. Simmer for 30 minutes over low heat. Add zucchini and simmer 5 minutes longer. Taste and adjust seasoning. Yields 4-6 servings.

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
