My friend Miriam Green has a noteworthy blog about how she helps her mother, who has Alzheimer's. The blog is entitled The Lost Kitchen. It is heartwarming. and nutritious. I feel like a better person after reading each new blogpost.
Miriam asked me to write a blogpost she could share, about my experience in such matters. Here we go:
1 LARGE leek or 3 small leeks (white part only or with finely chopped greens, per diner preferences) chopped
1 LARGE onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 lbs pumpkin, cubed (use flat slices for easier cubing)
4 medium carrots, julienned in bite-size pieces or thinly sliced
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp ginger (nutmeg if you like stronger flavors)
½ tsp ground coriander
Himalayan or ocean salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste
6 cups water (more for a thinner soup)
Sauté leeks - including the finely chopped greens if you're using them - with the onion and garlic in a large pot until they become translucent. Add the spices with the remaining vegetables (including the seaweed for more nutrition), water and stir. Bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes to an hour until the vegetables, including the greens, are cooked through.
