Pomegranate 4 Ways

Fall is here with its lovely cool days, colorful leaves, and its special seasonal fruits and vegetables. As a child pomegranate was my favorite fruit of the season and as an adult I still enjoy it all the same. I used to have the arils with a spoon when my dad had separated them and put them in small bowls for us (my siblings and I) or push the whole not opened pomegranate all over (آب لمبو) and when it is soft make a very small whole in it and drink the juice by sucking, YUM!

Cold Watermelon Soup

Hot summer days always call for cool drinks/food to cool you down, and I can tell you nothing can quench my thirst as much as a cold, sweet WATERMELON. Yum!! Today I did my cooking experiment or rather no-cooking required experiment on making Watermelon soup. It is quite refreshing and the best starter of the meal on a hot summer day. [ 103 more words ]

Asparagus Soup

Making a seasonal soup can be fulfilling yet challenging at the same time. For the past two weeks I have tried to achieve the right balance of ingredients to make vegetarian asparagus soup. I have failed the first few times as I added too much of something and not enough of another, some spices did not work well with the soup and so on. [ 206 more words ]
