3 – Transfer the potatoes and reserved water to a blender and puree.

8 – Bring soup to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
9 – Before serving whisk in the lemon juice and adjust seasoning to taste.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Simmer, simmer, and simmer some more………

Simmer that Soup! – Once soup has come to a boil, reduce to a simmer and make sure that it stays there. Boil things too vigorously, and the vegetables will get mushy, the meat will toughen, and the noodles will start to break down.

Korean Turkey Burgers with Kimchi
Korean chile paste (also known as gochujang) blended into the ground turkey makes this turkey burger recipe incredibly moist and flavorful. Top these healthy turkey burgers with kimchi–a fermented mixture of cabbage and other vegetables–which can be found near other refrigerated Asian ingredients or near sauerkraut or pickles in well-stocked supermarkets or natural-foods stores…………….

Honey-Harissa Pork Tenderloin with Saffron Freekeh and Zucchini
In this 30-minute healthy dinner recipe, whole-grain freekeh cooks unattended while you finish the rest of the meal. Using baby vegetables cuts down on prep time because they can be cooked whole. Look for them near prepared and/or specialty vegetables. If you can’t find them, use 4 cups sliced small zucchini or summer squash instead (1/2-inch-thick slices)……………

 

Crispy Chicken Schnitzel with Herb-Brown Butter
This healthy recipe for crispy chicken schnitzel involves coating the chicken breasts with fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs and oven “frying” using a mist of olive oil cooking spray instead of frying in lots of oil. Serve on a bed of mixed greens or with mashed potatoes……………….

4 – Add the onions, garlic, chilies, and seasonings to the pot. Allow vegetables to lightly brown, stirring occassionally.

7 – Transfer the soup to a blender in batches and mix until smooth. Return soup to medium high heat and bring to a gentle boil.
8 – Add the two packages of the Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast and and stir to incorporate. Heat for 5 minutes, then stir in the juice of half of a fresh lime and season to taste.

Beer-Glazed Chicken with Grilled Vegetables
Need a new chicken dinner idea? Try this grilled chicken and vegetable dish from chef Rick Bayless. Grilling the chicken and summer vegetables is a no-brainer, but in colder months, you may wish to move indoors and roast the chicken, along with some root vegetables. Whatever the weather, it’s worth seeking out piloncillo for the beer glaze. This unrefined sugar used in Mexican cooking is made from evaporated cane juice. Its complex caramelized flavor balances any bitterness in the beer. Look for it in Latin markets and online…………..

Open-Face Italian Chicken Sandwiches with Avocado Slaw
The quick tomato topping on these hearty and healthy chicken sandwiches will remind you of pizza. The accompanying slaw swaps out mayo for healthier avocado. Cook the chicken breasts on the grill if you prefer (see Tip) and consider making a double batch of the chicken for lunches and dinners later in the week……..

Chicken Pesto Pasta with Asparagus
This healthy chicken pesto pasta is easy to make thanks to convenience ingredients like rotisserie chicken and store-bought pesto. The addition of fresh asparagus—which is cooked in the same pot as the pasta—brightens up the look and the flavors of this family-friendly and easy one-pot dinner. Fresh basil, if you have it on hand, is a nice finishing touch…………
