Ten Vegetable Soup
With Ten Vegetable Soup, you combine terrific-tasting and healthy carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, canned tomatoes, leek, onion, Swiss chard, a potato and parsley. Tossing them all into a pot takes less than 30 minutes. The result is enough to eat for several days — and it also freezes nicely.

Makes 10 servings. Per serving: 1 cup

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 cups chopped green cabbage, quartered and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips (or purchase already shredded)
1 cup cauliflower florets, 1-inch pieces
1 medium leek, sliced, use white and 1-inch of light green part
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 medium celery stalk, chopped
1 (14.5-oz.) can no salt added diced tomatoes
4 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 medium yellow-fleshed potato, diced
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 Tbsp. dried thyme
1 1/2 packed cups Swiss chard or spinach, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne, optional
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

1 – In large Dutch oven or heavy soup pot with tight-fitting cover, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, cauliflower, leek, onion, carrot and celery and stir to coat them with oil. Cook until cabbage is limp and onion translucent, 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook gently until vegetables release their juices, about 8 minutes.
2 – Add tomatoes with their liquid, broth, potato, parsley and thyme. Increase heat to medium-high until liquid boils, then cover, reduce heat, and simmer soup for 10 minutes. Add Swiss chard and simmer for 10 minutes. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper; let sit for 15 minutes before serving. If desired refrigerate for up to 4 days, reheating in covered pot over medium heat. Or divide cooled soup among resealable freezer bags and freeze. This soup keeps in freezer for up to 2 months.

Fresh Herbs or Dried Herbs…….

Fresh herbs can lose flavor when exposed to heat for long periods to time. For dishes that require a longer baking time of 1-2 hours, opt for dried herbs, which can withstand the heat.

The roasted poblano peppers in this creamy corn chowder give it just the right amount of smokiness and the potatoes make it hearty enough for a main course. We finally have some fall weather drifting into the south and that means it’s time for soup! It’s no secret that I love anything with a […]

Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread

Today’s Menu:Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread
 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I’m having another of the Buffalo Fillet Mignon. I love these SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon! To prepare it I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. It came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also as usual, had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

Rain, Thunderstorms, and a high of 56 degrees for a high. We have a lot of flooding across the area. So its a another indoor day. Did some cleaning; Turned the oven on and let clean, straightened up the freezer, and straightened up the pantry. After that just kicked back and watched some College Basketball. For Dinner tonight its Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 

 

You can make any Meal healthier by using healthier ingredients. That includes Meatballs and Pasta! I’ll be using Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large Meatballs. For the Sauce I’m using LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce. Then for the Rotini Pasta I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. For the added Cheese topping I’m using Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. The Bread is River Road Bakehouse Multi Grain Bread. I’ve been buying this from Meijer the last few months and it’s our favorite Baked Bread.

 

I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. As I said, for the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large Meatballs.

 

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking them in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray, added the Sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the Sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

For the Rotini Pasta I’m using my favorite, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. Easy to prepare; I used a large sauce pan and added 1 1/2 quarts of water and Salt and brought it to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and brought it back to a boil. Cooked uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring often. Drained the Pasta and put it into the Baking Dish. Then Seasoned the Rotini with 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, some McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Next I topped the Rotini with the LaRosa’s Sauce and Turkey Meatballs. Sprinkled more of the Grated Parm Cheese followed by a layer of Sargento Mozzarella Cheese. The oven was preheated at 400 degrees so it was ready to bake. As the Past Dish was baking I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

The Meatballs and Rotini came out incredible! The Turkey Meatballs, Rotini Pasta, Cheese, and Sauce combined to make one delicious Dish! Plus Mom and Dad both enjoyed it. Neither is big on Pasta but had 2 servings of it!. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
