Cardamom Curry Eggplant Tomato Soup

Cardamom Curry Eggplant Tomato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #healthy #spicy #soup #recipe

Can soup be sexy? I think this one is. Silky and velvety, rich and lightly spicy and laced with exotic flavors, this curried eggplant tomato soup is so enticing, I found myself licking the bowl to get every last drop. Can you tell I’m a little smitten with this soup? I came up with the idea after […]


Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs

Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garden #tomato #spicy #curry #breakfast #recipe

It’s harvest season … a time of year I absolutely love. I personally don’t have much of a garden (other than the massive container garden on my patio which is mostly flowers and herbs this year), mostly because I find myself too busy to tend to it and partly because I live in a forest. […]

Cilantro Coconut Curry Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #curried #hummus #dip #recipe

I have a beautiful circle of yoga friends. Every Wednesday night we meet for yoga, then we go for wine. We’ve been doing this every Wednesday night for years and it’s made Wednesdays the night we all look forward to every week. We have laughed and cried together and shared so many special moments, birthday celebrations, and quite […]


Nepalese Cauliflower Curry {Misayeko Tarkari}

Nepalese Cauliflower Curry {Misayeko Tarkari} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Nepal #Cauliflower #Vegetarian #Curry #recipe

It’s hard to explain all the sensory satisfaction you get from this eating dish–it has a little creaminess, a little exotic spice, a tingle of heat that dances on your tongue, a touch of sweetness and so many wonderful textures and flavors all mingling together beautifully. The color is so vibrant too, it’s even a […]


Biswa’s Winning Chicken Curry

Biswa's Winning Chicken Curry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #amazing #chicken #curry #recipe

We had a little soup/chili competition at work a while ago and Biswa, one of my coworkers, brought this ah-mazing chicken curry … he won first prize at the competition.

Brazilian Thai Fusion Fish Stew with Zucchini

Brazilian Thai Fusion Fish Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #fusion #fish #stew #recipe

Inspired by Dizzy Busy & Hungry and my own kitchen meanderings Over the 4th of July we visited my sister and her husband who live on a lake in Minnesota. They both love to fish, so they always have an over-abundance of fish. Of course we had a huge fish fry on Saturday (which is always the highlight […]

Curried Red Lentil Apple Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #autumn #lentil #apple #soup #recipe

Adapted from Avocado Pesto A lovely curried lentil soup with a hint of sweet/tart apple and just a bit of heat, enough to make it lightly tingle on your tongue. The texture of the soup is soft, smooth and delicate. This month at work, they are doing a series of “fun Fridays” and one of […]


Eggplant & Chickpea Curry

Eggplant & Chickpea Curry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #vegetarian #dinner #recipe #glutenfree

with tomatoes and basil … adapted from Real Simple (and my sister) When my family gets together, no matter what the occasion, the conversation always turns towards food. It’s been a very sad past couple weeks for my family, with my uncle’s battle with cancer, then the funeral. My sister was worried about my dad, so […]


Cilantro Curry Potato Salad

Cilantro Curry Potato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #curry #potato #salad #recipe

I’m going to apologize for posting so many “produce” recipes, but it IS that time of year! I have so many fresh garden goodies and not enough time to make good use of everything! This was another creation I made for our little camping trip to the folk fest. I used my glorious cilantro coconut […]


Cilantro Coconut Curry Sauce

Cilantro Coconut Curry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thai #curry #sauce #recipe

A delicious Thai-style curry sauce with a sweet coconut base, Sriracha, ginger, cilantro, lime, Thai red curry paste and jalapeno. It’s a new twist on that amazing Thai peanut sauce I love so much. I used this sauce for my Watermelon Coconut Curry. The sauce is sooooo scrumptious and so simple to make, I think […]

Shakshuka {Eggs in Moroccan Tomato Sauce} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Adapted just slightly from my good friend Melissa at ChinDeep You know what? I have a foodie love. I’ve never met her, but I love EVERYTHING that she does. She writes books and makes beautiful drawings, takes gorgeous photos, makes the most delicious dishes and elegant appetizers and treats, she drinks lots of tea and […]


Ginger Carrot Red Lentil Soup

Ginger Carrot Red Lentil Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Adapted from La Belle Cuisine Sundays in the wintertime for me seem to be soup making days. If I don’t make soup on Sunday, I find myself regretting it all week long when I have no soup to eat for lunches during the week. So this morning I set out to make some soup, but […]


Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese

Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

It always floors me when something simple like this turns out to taste soooo good. I made this soup with some leftover rosemary roasted squash we made when in the process of creating the Butternut Bacon Macaroni & Cheese. I was so pleased at how wonderful this soup turned out: it has a soft, silky texture, […]


Curried Lentil Tomato Sausage Stew

Curried Lentil Tomato Sausage Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lentil #soup #recipe

I’ve been making soup like crazy the past few weeks, trying to use up my fresh garden things and fight off this virus that invaded my body. Last weekend was really bad … I was a complete energy void. I realized Sunday that if I was going to make it through the week, I needed […]


Half Moon Sesame Thai Cucumber Salad

Half Moon Sesame Thai Cucumber Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cucumber #salad

A tasty light cucumber salad that takes advantage of garden fresh produce, fresh herbs and some exotic flavors from Thailand and the Orient. This week has been a rough week for me on a lot of levels. I won’t trouble you with the details, but suffice it to say there is some teenage angst, young […]


Curry Saffron Wild Mushroom Risotto

Curry Saffron Wild Mushroom Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #risotto #recipe

Creamy wild mushroom risotto with a light subtle hint of curry and saffron, Italian cheeses and cherry tomatoes, garnished with snipped chives and chive flowers. It’s not curry like you typically think of curry … it’s a very mild, subtle curry flavor from a curry plant. I had never heard of such a thing until […]


Curried Carrot Cheddar Tea Sandwiches

Curried Carrot Cheddar Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted just slightly from my dear friend Melissa at ChinDeep Cheddar, carrot, and curry? together? in a sandwich? I had really never thought of putting carrot in a sandwich until I saw Melissa’s bright orange carrot cheddar curry tea sandwiches. I was immediately intrigued … (aka obsessed) Yeah, I had to go there. The carrots took a little […]


Red Thai Curry Pepper Mushroom Chicken

Red Thai Curry Pepper Mushroom Chicken

I fell in love with Thai curry in California. We used to go to this beautiful little Thai restaurant for lunch and they had the most marvelous Thai chicken curry. It came in a big bowl, all soupy, with big hunks of chicken and potato, with rice on the side. The sauce was pure heaven; […]


Curried Chicken Salad in Crispy Wonton Cups

Curried Chicken Salad in Crispy Wonton Cups

I went to a New Year’s Eve party one year, and one of my friends there had brought these amazing little appetizers! They have been stuck in my head ever since … It was a curried chicken  salad with grapes in it, served in these pretty crispy little wonton cups. I asked her for the […]


Curried Red Pepper Aubergine Soup

Fire Roasted Red Pepper Eggplant Thai Curry Soup

I’ve been toying with the idea of making a thai-style curry soup with my aubergines … aubergine, isn’t that a fabulous word? It sounds so fancy and cultured to me. Usually I just use the word “eggplant”, but it doesn’t carry the same elegance that these beautiful purple vegetables really deserve. Anyway, I came home […]


Thick & Hearty Curried Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Thick & Hearty Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

I got in a fight with my teenage son this afternoon … it was, as usual, a very emotionally charged exchange. We were both livid by the time we left the house. I was driving him to his dad’s place and yes, I was angry, but after a moment, I forced myself to calm down […]


Curried Stuffed Summer Squash

Curried Stuffed Summer Squash

My parents came to visit this weekend and with them they brought SO much beautiful bounty from their garden: peppers, onions, potatoes, eggplant, turnips, tomatoes, yellow watermelon, butternut squash. They brought me a jar of salsa that they had made and a box full of canned tomatoes. AND a case of dad’s homemade wine. We […]
