This Month’s Monmouth County Co-op Corner

One of Monmouth County Organic Fruit and Veggie Co Op's recent deliveries included an array of artisanal lettuces. What to do with lots and lots of lettuce? Lettuce Soup, of course!


Lettuce Soup

by Monmouth County Organic Co-op member, Devon Devoe


Ingredients:


· 2-3 heads of lettuce (can be similar or various types)

· 4 tablespoons Earth Balance

· 1-2 medium sized yellow onions

· *Optional: additional 1-2 shallots

· 2-3 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cubed

· 1 teaspoon minced garlic

· 4 cups broth (I used Walmart Creamy Vegan Protein Broth)

· 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

· 1/4 black pepper

· 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

· Plain Greek yogurt (optional for garnish)

· Nutritional yeast (optional for garnish)


Melt Earth Balance in large pot, along with a few tablespoons of water. Add onion, shallot*, minced garlic and stir until soft (4-5 minutes)


Add cubed potato, sea salt, black pepper, and coriander, stir occasionally, let cook another 5-7 minutes


Add lettuce and 1 cup of broth, stir and let cook for 2-3 minutes until wilted.


Add remaining broth, cover and cook until potatoes are fully cooked through, approximately 10-12 more minutes


Blend in batches until completely smooth.**


**When blending hot ingredients, let cool for 10-15 minutes before adding to the blender. Fill blender only half way each time. Leave the top of the blender open (center circle) to release steam and place kitchen towel over it. To catch splatter. Start by pulsing, then blend on low. A few small pieces are okay.


Add remaining Earth Balance salt, and pepper to taste. Dollop with plain Greek yogurt before serving (optional) and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor burst


Enjoy hot or chilled!
