Roasted Fennel and Garlic Soup
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Clean up the garlic bulbs by trimming the base off and cutting some of the tops off the garlic. Place whole bulbs or individual cloves into a small baking dish and drizzle olive oil all over. Roast for at least 20 minutes or till the cloves look a bit wilted and the garlic is golden and soft. Remove from oven and allow it to cool before squeezing out each clove. Be careful – they’re HOT!
  3. While garlic is in oven melt 2 tablespoons of ghee and toss with fresh fennel. Add salt and pepper to taste and place on a baking sheet. Roast for 20-30 minutes or till the fennel is translucent and starting to brown. The browner it is the more depth it will give the soup. Remove from heat.
  4. In a small stock pot, melt the remainder of ghee. Add fennel seeds and when they begin to release their aroma and turn slightly golden, add the leeks and potatoes.
  5. Sauté till leeks are somewhat translucent, then add the broth, roasted garlic, roasted fennel, bay leaves and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  6. Add the fresh herbs, salt and pepper and continue to simmer till the veggies are somewhat soft.
  7. Remove bay leaves. Blend in small batches in a blender or use an immersion blender to puree the soup till its smooth. Return to sauce pan and reheat. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve in bowls and top with homemade croutons.
Recipe Notes

Can use any of our savory ghee products in place of Original Ghee.

To Make Croutons: Pre-heat the oven to 375F. Slice your bread of choice and cut into 1/4” cubes. Melt 2 tablespoons of any ghee and add dried herbs of your chose to complement the soup’s flavors. Add salt and pepper and mix everything into the bread cubes. Spread out on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on crunchy you want them. Remove from oven and cool.

When using dried herbs vs: fresh, the rule of thumb measurement is 1/3 dried of what you're using fresh. In this recipe use 1 teaspoon dried vs. a tablespoon fresh!

Of course everyone's palate is different so season to your tastes.

Rice, Kale, Yam and Shrimp Bowl
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add rice. Reduce heat to low and keep lid slightly ajar. Watch for overflowing!
  2. While the rice is cooking, place a half cup of water and peeled yams into a sauté pan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil and allow the yams to cook till water is absorbed - at least 5-7 minutes. May need to add a little more water if yams are still too firm. When to the right tenderness remove from pan.
  3. In the same pan, melt 1 tablespoon of Original Ghee, add the fennel seeds and cook for one minute. Toss in the shallot and allow to cook for about 2 minutes or till translucent.
  4. Add chopped kale and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Adding a couple splashes of water helps it to cook faster. Remove from pan.
  5. In the same pan, add a small amount of Original Ghee and allow to melt. Add garlic, lemon, and shrimp. Sprinkle shrimp with sweet paprika and dill. Saute for about 2 minutes on each side. Shrimp cook very fast so once they are lightly pink they are done. They will continue to cook after you remove them from the heat.
  6. Once the rice is done, add the Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee, salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Add the yams and kale to the pan of rice and mix all together. Adjust seasonings and place in bowls. Top off with shrimp and serve.
  8. Serves 2 generously as a meal.

Recipe Notes

Serve alone, with fresh whipped cream or warm with vanilla ice cream.

  • Peeling peaches:  Blanching peaches loosens their skin and makes them super easy to peel.
    • 1) Score an X on the bottom skin of each washed peach. Do not cut deeply - just need to score the skin.
    • 2) Put the peaches in the boiling water, making sure they are entirely submerged. Blanch them for 40 seconds or up to one minute if the peach is not quite ripened.
    • 3) Remove each peach from the boiling water using a pair of tongs or slotted spoon.
    • 4) Submerge into a ice bath for at least one minute to cool quickly.
    • 5)  Cut them in half, remove the pit, peel off the skin using your fingers or a small knife.  Slice/dice them for the recipe.
    • 6) BE CAREFUL!  They are slippery!
