My Thyme Scented Creamy Fennel + Asparagus Soup represents one of the many ways I like to celebrate asparagus’s arrival and the joy of Spring’s bounty.

We’ve officially entered what I call “The Last Season For Soup.” Winter is all about hearty stews. Come Summer, I’ll be loath to have anything hot, but this time of year a bowlful of something warm and light hits the spot.
I officially have a Dr’s prescription to nosh on more succulent crustaceans and umami mollusks. Yeah, that’s right. You see, I recently had my labs done which revealed I’m low in Zinc (but otherwise looking good thanks to my nutrient dense diet, huzzah!) To boost my levels of this important immune system mineral, I’ve started some supplementation, and I’ll also be enjoying more zinc-rich foods like shellfish. Doctor’s orders. Oh, I’m loving this.
Quick pickles are a great way to increase your daily dose of gut healing probiotics. And they’re easy! I love creating new pickle recipes from whatever vegetables I have on hand. Like the rest of my menu, my pickles change with the seasons. This recipe is perfect for warmer months because it features cucumber and celery, which are both cooling and hydrating. Orange juice and zest provide a touch of sweetness to create a balanced and refreshing side dish or snack. I hope you’ll enjoy!
