Moroccan Spiced Lentil Vegetable Soup/Khobz

All I can think about is lentils. I love lentils partially because they are so versatile, but mostly because they are so delicious with their faintly peppery bite. This week the flavors shall be Moroccan and the only version will be vegetarian. I plan on loading it up with the tastiest aromatics and vegetables, plus a hint of tomatoes. A finishing touch will be the flavors of ras el hanout, a traditional Moroccan spice blend of cumin, ginger, black pepper, cinnamon and more. It's going to be great, I promise!

To accompany the soup, I'm baking loaves of Moroccan bread, called khobz. Almost a cross between a flat bread and a round loaf, there will be plenty of crust to soak up every bit of soup!

Prices as follows:
1 quart/$8     2 quarts/$15      3 quarts/$22     4 quarts/$28

Loaves: $3/each

(Payment via cash, check, credit, or Paypal)

I'm taking orders till mid-afternoon on Wednesday. Orders taken via emails, text messages, carrier pigeon, smoke signals, etc. Pickup will be Friday evening and Saturday. Delivery available for an additional $2 to City and inner ring suburbs locations.

Tiny Montgomery Kitchen returns! Portuguese Caldo Verde and Broa Loaves!

Hello TMK friends!

It has been much too long since I've made a giant pot of soup for you. I think the weather this week merits something nice, hearty, and warming so I've settled on a Portuguese dish called Caldo Verde or Green Soup, so named because of the abundance of healthy greens like kale and collard greens. The soup itself is fairly simple, full of creamy potatoes, greens, garlic, and homemade linguica sausage (if you choose the meaty option), a slightly spicy and smoky pork sausage with lots of garlic, paprika, and red wine. A bit of appropriately seasoned tempeh will add some heft to the vegetarian version. 

To accompany this Portuguese dish, I've chosen a bread popular in that region too, called Broa. It's a cornbread/yeast bread hybrid with a crusty exterior, perfect for soaking up soup juices!

Prices as follows (you can mix and match meaty/veg): 
1 quart/$8     2 quarts/$15      3 quarts/$22     4 quarts/$28

I am taking orders until Wednesday afternoon! Please share with anyone you think might be interested! To order, email me: or
You can also message me on Facebook or you can text me if you have my number! This season I do need to add a $2 delivery fee per order (and the delivery area of inner ring suburbs/inside I-170 still stands). Of course, pickup is available as well. Delivery/pickup will start Friday evening and continue on Saturday this week.
