When I posted last night’s Detox Menu, I listed Lemon Chicken Smothered in Onions as the main course for dinner. Below is the recipe I conjured up to get my protein (and onion) quota for the day.

Since Bill can’t eat wheat, I like using quinoa as a substitute in tabouli. This is the recipe I threw together on Sunday as part of my preparation for my detox this coming week. With garbanzo beans, it makes a great lunch!

It’s still winter squash season and butternut is one of my favorites. Unlike the Winter Squash Soup I made last month–with its savory sage and thyme–the recipe I followed today calls for a base of curry and ginger, balanced by the sweetness of butternut squash and the pungency of cumin.
I found Curried Roasted Squash Soup in the November issue of Taste for Life magazine, which I picked up for free at Nature’s Market, our local organic grocer. But the recipe is originally from The Roasted Vegetable by Andrea Chesman.
Here’s her recipe:
It’s soup season in Michigan. Especially when you have lots of root vegetables stored up from the farmers’ market. Because I had a bin full of carrots from Visser Farms and onions from the Boeve Farm, it made sense to make a batch of Roasted Onion and Carrot Soup from Bon Appetit.
I’m surprised this recipe only serves two people. Since we were having guests for dinner, I made one and a half times the recipe–18 ounces of carrots–which ended up being six large ones.

I’ll admit, I was slightly intimidated by the idea of roasting a duck after watching the scene in “Julie & Julia” where Julie attempts one of Julia Child’s duck recipes. And, in the days leading up to today, everyone’s been saying, “Boy, ducks have a lot of fat!”, which means—what? A smoky oven? Overcooked, undercooked, or inedible duck? So I planned for lots of side dishes as a back-up. And I made dessert first thing this morning so we could at least count on chocolate cake, if all else fails.
