Quick: On the roadmap of food, what’s at the intersection of Healthy and Delicious? 

The answer is spice

Here’s a peak at our new Suppers at Savory Spice, a Saturday morning breakfast meeting at the spice shop on Spring Street in Princeton. 

Andrew Appello – acupuncturist, R.N., clinical herbalist – deconstructed a therapeutic Winter soup for us.  Each item in the recipe was there because it had some therapeutic property.  It was heady and fragrant with a hefty dose of healing spices, from anti-inflammatory turmeric and ginger to blood sugar stabilizing cinnamon to good-for-everything garlic.  Recipe below!

We are just about keeping up with the demand for more Suppers.  We’ve stretched into public venues in the hope of reaching and accommodating more people.  Just let me know you’re coming!

  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • Seat salt
  • 2 pounds organic carrots, scrubbed and chopped
  • 4 large yams, peeled and chopped

  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 inches of ginger, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Black pepper
  • 2 quarts veggie stock
  • 1 can organic coconut milk
  • water as needed for consistency
  1. Place 1/3 of the coconut oil in a roasting pan or two, depending on volume of vegetables.
