Sweet Potato Leek Soup
2 tbsp canola oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 leeks, white and light green parts, rinsed, dried
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-inch cubes
1 tbsp kosher salt
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 (32-ounce) carton Manischewitz® All Natural Vegetable Broth
¼ cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
Heat oil in a stock pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, and leeks. Sweat vegetables for 5 minutes. Add sweet potatoes, salt, and cayenne; mix well. Cook for 5 minutes more. Stir in broth and parsley. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Adjust seasoning, if needed.
1 cup flour
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp olive oil, divided
2 cups assorted thinly-sliced mushrooms
1 ½ lbs chicken cutlets, cut into ½ inch strips
½ cup Marsala wine
¼ cup Manischewitz® All Natural Chicken Broth
Combine flour, thyme, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
In a 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a small bowl and set aside.
Heat remaining 2 tbsp oil in the skillet. Dip chicken in flour mixture. Shake off excess flour and place chicken in hot oil. Do not crowd chicken or it won’t brown. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
Once all of the chicken has been cooked, add wine to the skillet, stirring up all of the browned bits and pieces. Increase heat to high and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Stir in broth, and cook for 3 minutes more or until sauce thickens. Return mushrooms to pan and heat through. Pour sauce over chicken.
