Ask Carb Diva: Questions & Answers About Food, Cooking, & Recipes #69
As I write this, we are in the final days of 2018. Why you may ask, did I begin this article one month ago? I knew that at the end of January my family and I would be in "the happiest place on earth", otherwise known as Disneyland. This little column takes at least 4 hours of work each week, and if I'm rubbing elbows with Mickey and company, there are not 4 hours to spare.
So, this episode will be different from the rest.
But, I do leave with you my weekly bowl of Alphabet Soup.
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 red onions, diced
- ½ pound button mushrooms, sliced
- 2 large red bell peppers, diced
- 2 14-ounce cans chicken broth
- 1 pound new or Yukon gold potatoes, diced
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 cup sour cream (not non-fat)
- 1 ½ pounds white fish (cod or halibut are excellent choices) cut into small chunks
- ½ cup minced fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
- Place butter, lemon juice, onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers in a large stockpot. Sauté until vegetables are tender.
- Add chicken broth and potatoes; bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender about 15 minutes.
- Stir together cornstarch, water, and sour cream. Stir into ingredients in stockpot, stirring constantly until blended.
- Add fish to stockpot and cook about 5 minutes or until fish is done (remove one piece to test; it should flake easily with a fork).
- Garnish with parsley, if desired.
Did you know that there is a Table of Contents for this series? I have created an article that provides a detailed listing of each question I've received. It's broken down by category, and within each category, the questions are listed alphabetically. Each question is actually a hotlink back to the original post.
Here's a link to that Table of Contents.
If you like this series, you'll love this! And, I have recently added to that Table of Contents an Index of all of the "Alphabet Soup" recipes. I love you guys.
