This Month's Free Soup Recipe and Pattern Corrections

The soup recipe this time is for Spiced Beet and Carrot Soup in the December issue of Cooking Light. It was hard to decide between the beet soup and curried butternut soup. The deciding factor was the color of the beet soup! I guess once a quilter, always a quilter!!! I haven't made the soup yet but plan to next week. It sounds wonderful and I am giving you the recipe straight from the magazine.

Spiced Beet and Carrot Soup
From Cooking Light, December 2012 issue

Hands on time: 16 min
Total time: 1 hr 26 min

This soup is tart, just sweet enough, and hearty, though not a protein powerhouse. If you want to pump up the protein, increase the walnuts or serve with a salad of greens, nuts and goat cheese.

1 lb small red beets, peeled and quartered
1/2 pound large carrots, peeled and halved lengthwise
2 1/2 teaspons olive oil, divided
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups diced peeled apple
3/4 c chopped yellow onion
1/2 teaspoon garam masala (found in the boullion and spice section or at Indian markets)
2 cups organic vegetable broth
2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup plain 2 percent reduced fat Greek yougurt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1/3 cup baby watercress

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place beets and carrots into a bowl. Drizzle with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil; Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Toss and arrange vegetables in prepared pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes until tender, stirring once. Remove from oven; cool slightly. Cut beets and carrots into 1-inch pieces.

3. Heat a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat. Add apple, onion, garam masala to pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes. Add beet mixture, broth and 2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove froom heat and let stand 15 minutes.

4. Place half of the beet mixture in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour soup into a bowl. Repeat. Stir in lemon juice. Ladle about 1 1/4 cup soup into a bowl. Top with 3 tablespoons yogurt, 2 teaspoons walnuts and about 1 tablespoon watercress.

My thanks to Sinta Borland who found the mistakes and took the initiative to correct them. We appreciate her efforts!

  • The cutting for white red pindot was not included in the pattern (I can’t even imagine how this might have happened). Please add the following:

            White Pindot: Cut 8 – 10” x 10 1/2” rectangles for vase backgrounds
                                    Cut 16 – 4 1/2” wide x 2” high strips for stem units
                                    Cut 10 – 2” x 20” strips for sashing
                                    Cut 5- 2” x 5” strips for shorter sashes

  • Page 4- Make the sashing strips:
      
    Sew 2” x 20” white pindot sash to 2” red floral square.

 

  • Border strips: Please change the cutting as listed below:

    Left Hand Border, red and white squares, cut 1-4 1/2” x 21 1/4”

  • The cutting given for the Sage Word Print should be Cut 1-12 1/2” x 24 1/2 rectangle” instead of cut 1- 12 1/2” x 24” rectangle.

Hip Holdays Cutting Clarification:

  • Dianne Miller writes: In the cream pindot cutting, under tree backgrounds, if the rectangles are cut diagonally in the manner shown, won't you end up with two triangles in the same orientation? In other words, you will have two triangles that fit on the left edge of the tree and no triangles for the right side.

  • Our response: I am assuming that people will cut the rectangles with the fabric folded in half as it comes of the bolt which makes a duplicate pair of rectangles in the opposing direction. Then you mix and match the pairs to get the orientation needed. Folks might want to cut 8 of these rectangles (4 pair) and one will go to waste.

Seed Collectors:

  1. The assembly instructions for the border below the flowers should read “Sew black 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" between the blue plaid and then sew a black 2 /12" x 3 1/2" strip to both ends”. The cutting is correct as given.
  2. Which leaf patterns should I use for leaves in basket panel? We used “right top” for leaf on right and “right top reversed” for leaf on left.

Parisian Pastries Correction 1

Please change the cutting for the log cabin block to read as follows:
Brown small dot. Cut strips for sides of log cabin block at 5 1/2”. Then cut into rectangles 2” x 5 1/2”. The pattern says 2 1/2” x 5 1/2” but it should b 2” x 5 1/2”. Likewise for the 2" x 8 1/2" strip

Bad Dad:

Candy Brown writes that we should say cut 12 pieced blocks instead of 6. She is absolutely right!! You will not be short on yardage because there are approx 42 10 squares in the layer cake used for this quilt and we got the whole quilt from one layer cake.

Meredith writes that she was confused about what size the vehicle borders are finally trimmed to. They are trimmed to 9-1/2” x 41-1/2 after the vehicles are sewn to the black 2-1/2” “road” strip. The pattern says these are 11-1/2” wide.  Change that to 9-1/2” wide please. Hope that clears it up.

We thank Eli Bailey at Prairie Queens Quilt Shop for the following corrections to our Sunny Disposition pattern.

Sunny Disposition:  

  1. Cutting: There is no mention of the Red Cameo in the cutting directions. The red cameo is for the tree trunks. The pattern is included on the appliqué sheets.

    1. Directions: Sew together one each of the light green floral and one strip of the green paisley. Press toward light green floral. Cut (8) 3 15/16” units.
