September has arrived, and soon the autumn nights will begin to cool. I love all times of year, but the changing of seasons always makes me happy. And while the weather may still be on the warm side at my house, my thoughts are beginning to turn toward cozy sweaters, cute boots, and, of course, warm soups and stews.
This particular soup – it’s called aush, and comes from Afghanistan – is perfect for a cold weather evening. It is a rich and satisfying comfort food, loaded with hearty pasta, savory beef, plenty of delicious spices, and enriched with cream. Yumm!
The recipe comes from the lovely Sabrina Villanueva, a fellow Food Revolution ambassador. Here’s what she has to say, “my favorite winter dish from childhood is called Aush or Osh, and is a traditional soup from Afghanistan that my grandmother taught my mother before she moved to the United States. It’s the perfect remedy when I feel ill or just need that winter comfort food, followed by a nap, of course. Before I left for medical school, I decided that it was time to learn how to make this dish, and now I am excited to share it with you! ”
