January’s featured recipe is for Roasted Vegetable Soup.

Every weekend, farmers market is brimming with the freshest seasonal vegetables.  Each trip yields a different collection of ingredients for this soup, which I enjoy every day.

Back in the kitchen, these vegetables are cut into bite sized pieces, generously coated in white miso paste and paprika, and roasted at until caramelized.  The drier, leafy vegetables, like leeks, kale and cabbage, are added with the roasted vegetables to a large heavy-bottomed pot, covered with water, and brought to a bubble.  I always look forward to helping myself to some of the caramelized roasted vegetables, before adding them to the pot.  There is a divine alchemy at work between the flavorful juices of the vegetables and miso as they roast.  At the very end, I often add a jar of my favorite tomato sauce, and berbere or curry powder.  After heating up a bowl, optional garnishes include fresh herbs, green onions, shredded cabbage and cherry tomatoes.
