Artichoke Oyster Soup Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

6 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup shallots (chopped fine)
1/4 tsp thyme
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp flour
14 oz chicken broth (more or less won't h, urt)
4 cup oysters, drained, reserve liquid (less, to
14 oz artichoke hearts, cooked
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp tabasco
1/2 cup whipping cream
3 tbsp parsley (chopped, fresh)

Recipe Preparation

In a 3-quart casserole, melt butter and saute shallots. When shallots
are translucent, add thyme, bay leaf and cayenne pepper. Add flour
and whisk well. Add broth, oyster water, artichoke hearts, salt and
tabasco. Bring to a boil. Add oysters and parsley. Simmer on medium,
partly covered, for exactly 5 minutes. Add whipped cream and serve
immediately.

NOTES:

* Chicken broth with artichokes and poached oysters ~- This is a
modern cajun-style recipe that I adapted from a local
convenience-food cookbook by Jean Durkee. It's an intriguing
combination of modern American ingredients with traditional cajun
flavorings.

* Fresh parsley tastes much better than dried parsley. If the
oysters are bigger than a small bite-size, cut them up before adding
them to the soup. Use the smallest oysters you can find.

* When I'm not making a double recipe, I usually dump the entire
(about 1-cup) container of whipping cream into the soup, even though
that's double what the recipe calls form.

* The timing on cooking the oysters is fairly critical. If you
overcook them, they will be rubbery.

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 20 minutes.
: Precision: measure the spices.

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Many are only a little less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.

* Fiber is crucial Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in fiber reduction as well. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.

Foods containing carotenes
(includes cilantro, mangos and winter squash)
These foods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed to play a major part in preventing cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lungs. Most also have a low calorie count, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
