  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots, sliced or diced
  • 1 cup sweet potatoes or yams, diced
  • 1 cup frozen yellow corn
  • 1 cup kale or spinach, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh peppercorns, ground, to taste

 

Grind sage and thyme with a mortar and pestle or with fingers to a fine consistency, like the consistency of coarse salt or finer. Whisk sage and thyme with flour, milk, broth and nutmeg together in a medium pot. Add garlic, onion, carrots, sweet potatoes or yams and corn, then cover and bring to a boil.

Once it’s boiling, add kale or spinach, cover again and reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook until kale or spinach is wilted and the other vegetables are fork-tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in ketchup, maple syrup, salt and pepper. If broth is too thick, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of milk.
