We had a really cold January and we had been traveling, so it was nice to come home and make a nice pot of soup and some corn bread. When traveling with food allergies sometimes you end up eating the same thing over and over.
I like to make this soup when I make Chili for the nightshade eaters. I’m not sure if it’s the color of the soup or the fact that there is beans in it that remind me of Chili. It could be the fact that it tastes better with corn bread. If you have not had chili with corn bread it is the best!
This soup reheats well and I love to add tons of cilantro, avocado and lime on top. Enjoy!
If you have read my blog you know I make bone broth almost weekly. As a gift to myself I bought an 8 quart pressure cooker. Today I will do a test run with some rice for lunch. I can’t wait to make my first batch of bone broth tomorrow.
You know the sadness that takes over you in the line at Starbucks as you look at all the pastries in the case knowing you can’t eat any of it…. That feeling must be why I’m always trying recipes for things I see in that case at Starbucks. Or in this case those little bags by the register at Starbucks.
I have to admit I was intimidated by this recipe. The resting and refrigerating make me think this recipe is too fussy to make, but it is pretty easy.
I do find it is best to let the eggs come to room temperature. And I melt the Earth Balance in the microwave and let it sit until it is room temp.
The batter is really thick. But there are so few ingredients I like to hand stir this recipe instead of use my mixer.
I use a small disher to fill the molds, and usually have enough to make two pans worth.
I hope these will make it easier to stand in line at Starbucks. Enjoy! -SB
I like anything that has dill. My garden is overflowing with dill that reseeds itself year after year. The first time I saw this salad I thought “a whole cup of dill! – must be good!”
I still have the problem that no one else in my house is a fan of turkey. Thus no leftovers, because no turkey dinners.
One of my other favorite green things is celery! I love the leaves and the insides. In fact I grow it in my garden just to have the leaves for salads.
I like to buy a turkey breast and cook it in a crockpot on low for about 8 hours with white wine, veggies, and some fresh herbs. Sometimes I will use two legs. Make sure to keep the bones to make stock!
This salad is pretty and would be good to take for a holiday potluck. I like it for lunch with or without greens and sprouts.
