It’s been chilly and wet up here, and Queenie has been fighting off a cold bug. In addition to the usual warming liquids that I give her in such situations (simple miso broth with scallions, various teas), I prepared this lunch for her yesterday. It seems to have done the trick, as she is much improved today.
I roasted some beets, parsnips and garlic in olive oil.
These root vegetables accompanied a delicious fennel-asparagus soup (recipe from the American Vegetarian Cookbook from the Fit for Life Kitchen).
The two together created something harmonious and delicious.
