There is no better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day then with a cozy home cooked dinner for two.
This is an outrageously easy soup as long as you don’t mind hunting down the one somewhat exotic ingredient, lemongrass. But one can even forego, and use extra lemons and not suffer consequences. The saffron gives this soup a vibrant jolt and the coconut milk a luxurious mouth feel.
Even if you don’t, this is interesting and delicious: rich, satisfying and relatively easy–as long as you have a grater.
This side dish is as easy as it is memorable. The trick is sautéed bread crumbs in butter. The vegetables are blanched in salted boiling water until fork tender. The drained vegetables are mixed with warm toasted bread crumbs. Parmesan is added at the end, off heat.

This soup is perfect for the weekend after Thanksgiving: light, clean, soothing. Have fun with this; vary it as you see fit, i.e., add par cooked pasta–orzo is good–other vegetables such as carrots or tomatoes, even croutons. Make this your own. Make a lot (12 cups of broth) or a little (8 cups or ½ gallon), it’s all good.
We have not one, not two, but THREE recipes to choose from using leftovers from Thanksgiving.
