This summer vegetable salad comes together in no time—as the shallots macerate in the vinegar for the dressing, you can prep everything else: slice the radishes, turnips, scallions, etc. With a hunk of bread on the side, the meal is complete. //

Loaded with vegetables — carrots, potatoes, onions and cabbage — a little bacon and a touch of cream, this cabbage soup is definitely hearty, best served on a cold winter day with crusty bread and nothing more. For me, it's the dill and caraway seeds that make it unlike any other I have tasted, the caraway seeds in particular imparting a lovely yet subtle flavor. //

Paul Steindler’s Cabbage Soup and A Peasant Bread Follow-Up

It's the bite of the sherry vinegar makes this lentil soup, but the virtues of it are truly countless: It is completely vegetarian, vegan in fact. It cooks in one hour and takes only as long to prepare as it does to chop up some carrots, celery and onions. No vegetables are sautéed; no stock is simmered. It also couldn't be more healthy — lentils are high in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. This soup is complete goodness. //
