Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Sweet carrots and snappy ginger are great paired with a dry Riesling. Try those from Clare Valley, Australia, which tend to be super limey.

Beer Pairings

The refreshing, clean, and smooth taste of a light Lager complements the ginger, garlic, and cilantro and adds depth to light dishes.

4. Prepare Toppings: Crumble goat cheese and chop cilantro.

To Serve: Divide soup among serving bowls. Top with goat cheese, cilantro, and pepitas.

Pro Tip:

Have an immersion blender on hand? If so, puree the soup directly in the slow cooker instead of blending in batches in a stand blender or food processor.

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #arecipeforreallife.
