I can’t believe it’s been exactly one year since I set out on my pop-up journey.

From the first one that I hosted in my backyard, to the beginning stages of opening a permanent space for regular monthly meals {more on that soon}. My Forever Spring dinner was a real celebration. And I want to thank David and Tommy of Bohlen Family Farms from the bottom of my heart. Our partnership is like no other and I’m so proud to cook your beautiful vegetables.

A big thanks to Seed Sprout Spoon {local folks – Sunday brunch is back on!} for hosting me in your space. To my people, Big Heart Tea Co. for supplying all things botanical. To Urban Chestnut Brewing Company for the beer and cider. To Clementine’s Creamery for making my golden aggfogato dreams come true. And to my lady Meghan, who helped me take beautiful images throughout the night when I couldn’t. I mega-love all of you.

Check out my pop-up events page for a recap of each meal I’ve hosted so far!

This creamy, spring allium soup with hemp seed dukkah is a rendition of the green garlic soup I served for the first course. It’s beautiful served chilled or warm. And made creamy, and naturally vegan with protein/healthy fat packed hemp seeds. Give me all the alliums, all the time. Give me allium soup.

Inspired by Brooklyn Supper's Spring Onion Soup. This soup is incredibly flexible. As long as the measurements stay the same, you can use whatever alliums and greens you have on hand. I served this soup chilled at my pop-up, but it is equally delicious warm.
By:
Makes: 6 cups
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup shallots, diced
  • 1 cup leeks, sliced
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 2 cups green onion, diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • ½ cup fresh parsley
  • ½ cup hemp seeds
  • Hemp Seed Dukkah, to garnish {see below}
Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pot over low heat. Sweat the shallots for 5 minutes. Then add in the leeks and sweat for 5 minutes more.
  2. Turn up the heat to medium, and add in the white onion, green onion and garlic. Stir and cook for 5 minutes and then add in the lemon juice. Stir again and add in the water. Season with a heavy pinch of salt and black pepper. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 10 minutes and remove from heat.
  3. Add in the spinach, parsley and hemp seeds. Stir and blend. Serve chilled or warm with a drizzle of olive oil, chive flowers {or chopped chives} and a generous sprinkle of hemp seed dukkah.

Toasting the seeds with just a touch of olive oil gets them a little crispy, which makes the perfect soup topping.

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
