What's Cooking with the Library?

What's Cooking with the Library?

Are you wondering what to do with the mystery spices that appeared in your pantry? Looking for new recipes and cookbook recommendations? Want to talk to others about cooking? We have the program for you!

During What’s Cooking with the Library, we’ll talk about different aspects of cooking like pantry basics, ways to substitute those harder to find ingredients, and even cook simple recipes on-stream (we’ll let you know what the ingredients are ahead of time so you can cook with us!).

This week, we’re going to cook something tasty! Together, we'll whip up a Lentil Soup with Lemon Yogurt Cream! We'll include the ingredients below if you want to cook too.

  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 TBS tomato paste
  • 2 TSP cumin
  • 2 TSP salt
  • 1/2 TSP cinnamon
  • 2 Cups Lentils (soak in water 2 hours before the program to save a little time!)
  • 8 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 Cup red wine/red cooking wine
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 Lemon

Please register below and you’ll be sent the Zoom meeting details.

We at AC Library care about your privacy. None of our live programs where members can chat or share video are recorded and none of the chat logs are saved. No one who attends a virtual program will be able to see the list of other attendees. Links to join a program will not be posted publicly and will only be sent to members who register in advance.  

AC Library currently uses GoToMeeting for virtual programming. We encourage you to click on the join link a few minutes early to download the meeting software for the first time. If you do not want to download software, please use the Chrome browser to participate. When you login you will be given the option to share your webcam and microphone. The choice is yours! We’d love to see you like we do at the library, but also understand if you are still in your bathrobe.
