Here are some recipes to warm your heart, body and soul on these chilly winter days.


Elizabeth’s Tomato Soup
Dr. Crook’s daughter, Elizabeth, contributed this delicious recipe. It freezes very well.

4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons each of olive oil and butter
4 carrots, peeled and diced
4 stalks of celery, finely diced
3 medium onions, chopped
14 large ripe tomatoes
3 quarts of canned tomatoes, chopped, with juice
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
6 leaves fresh basil
freshly ground pepper (optional)

Heat the oil (and butter, if you’re using it) in a large kettle. Sauté the carrots, celery and onions for about 20 minutes or until very tender. Add the tomatoes and continue cooking over moderate heat for 25-30 minutes or longer. Stir in parsley and basil. Season with salt and pepper and cook a minute longer. Serve.

Nell’s Chicken Soup

This soup tastes different with and without the yogurt—and both are good. Add a few vegetables if you wish.

2 tablespoons butter (or oil)
1/4 cup oat flour
2 tablespoons arrowroot
3 cups chicken broth, skimmed
_ cup chicken, cooked and shredded
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup plain yogurt (optional)
Garnish: minced green onion or chives

Melt the butter in a 3-quart pot. Sprinkle the flour over the butter and stir well. Slowly whisk in the broth. Cook over low heat until smooth and slightly thickened. Add the chicken, salt and pepper to taste.

If you like and con tolerate it, stir in the plain yogurt just before serving. Heat another minute or so, without boiling, until the soup is steamy. Garnish each serving with green onion or chives.
