Break out the Herbs and Spices…..

Flavor foods with more herbs and spices, using twice or three times more herbs than salt. Look at a book on how to use herbs and spices and try some unfamiliar ones,
such as cumin, coriander, turmeric or ginger.

Also try roasting vegetables like squash or peppers to enhance their sweetness. For dessert, try broiled peaches or a baked apple.

Preparing the perfect Squash…..

For seasoning the Squash try Sage. Something about how the earthiness of both ingredients work so well together. If you really want the flavor of sage to come through, get some butter going in a pan and fry the sage—a few seconds each side—to bring its oils out.

Deep-Dish Apple Pie
With all that delicious fruit an apple pie should be healthy, but the truth is a slice can have as much as 750 calories. For the most part, the culprit is the crust. We use whole-wheat pastry flour to add fiber and lower the saturated fat by replacing some of the butter with canola oil. The brown sugar-sweetened filling in this pie is made with two kinds of apples for the perfect balance. A slice has half the calories of a typical version—sweet!…..

Rustic Mushroom Tart
Don’t let phyllo dough’s fussy reputation put you off: our method of brushing olive oil and sprinkling breadcrumbs between the layers makes this tart actually quite simple to assemble, and helps keep it healthy. It can be served as a main course or cut into smaller pieces and enjoyed as an appetizer……

Grilled Lamb Chops with Thyme
Sometimes simple is best. These grilled lamb chops are a standout on their own, seasoned with just fresh thyme and a bit of crushed red pepper……

CHORIZO HASH
One way of adding a whole lot of flavor with very little effort to any recipe is to have our Buffalo Chorizo on hand. Both of the recipes below can be prepared meatless, but by adding the Chorizo you are adding flavor and a super healthy protein!
I used half a pound of Chorizo for this recipe, but if you were wanting to feed a crowd for a casual dinner, just double it up! I think you are going to really like this!

Ingredients: (serves 6 or 4 hungry ranchers)
1 – half pound package Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – cup onions, chopped
2 – cups squash or yams, diced & partially cooked through
1 – teaspoon each; cumin, coriander, salt & pepper
1/4 – teaspoon chili powder
2 to 3 cups – spinach, chopped
I – lemon, juiced
Chili Flake

Preparation:

1 – Prep all ingredients as noted in ingredient list.
2 – In a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil, onions and spices. Stir to incorporate and allow to start to brown.
3 – Crumble in the Chorizo Sausage and break up into the onions with a spatula. Continue to cook until lightly browned.
4 – Stir in squash or yams and stir to incorporate, stirring occasionally. About seven minutes.
5 – Add chopped spinach and stir to incorporate. Add lemon juice and stir in. Reduce heat to low.
6 – Season to taste and finish with a sprinkle of chili flake.
Serve immediately with crusty bread. Leftovers make a great breakfast with a poached egg on the top!

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup with Rotisserie Chicken
This rich-tasting but better-for-you creamy chicken soup has a delicious chicken pot pie feel to it. We call for rotisserie chicken to streamline your prep time–look for a nice big one with lots of breast meat on it. Pair this comforting and easy soup recipe with a green salad, or, if you’re really hungry, a grilled cheese sandwich……

Cream of Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
Got leftover cooked chicken or turkey? Cook up a pot of soup! This recipe is a healthier twist on a classic creamy turkey and wild rice soup that hails from Minnesota. Serve with a crisp romaine salad and whole-grain bread……

Butternut Squash Soup with Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Layering apple slices into grilled cheese sandwiches adds a little crunch to a favorite soup dipper. And creamy butternut squash soup with ginger, cumin and turmeric is a nice change of pace from grilled cheese’s usual tomato soup partner. Serve the duo for a comforting and easy weeknight dinner for the family. The soup keeps well in the fridge, so save leftovers for lunch or dinner later in the week.

One of America’s Favorites – Pumpkin Soup

A bowl of pumpkin cream soup

Pumpkin soup is a usually ‘bound’ (thick) soup made from a purée of pumpkin. It is made by combining the meat of a blended pumpkin with broth or stock. It can be served hot or cold, and is a popular Thanksgiving dish in the United States. Various versions of the dish are known in many European countries, the United States and other areas of North America, in Asia and in Australia. Pumpkin soup was a staple for the prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prison camps during the Vietnam War.

Squash soup is a soup prepared using squash as a primary ingredient. Squash used to prepare the soup commonly includes acorn and butternut squash.

Squash that has initially been separately roasted can be used in soup preparation. The roasting of squash can serve to concentrate the gourd’s flavor. Squash soup can be prepared with chunks or pieces of squash and also with puréed squash. Pre-cooked, frozen squash can also be used, as can commercially prepared packets of pre-cooked frozen squash purée. Butternut squash soup may have a sweet flavor, due to the sugars present in the squash. Additional basic ingredients in squash soup’s preparation can include broth, onion, cream, spices such as sage and thyme, salt and pepper. Other recipes have been known to include split peas and more exotic spices such as cumin and cinnamon. Pumpkin soup can be served hot or cold, and is a popular Thanksgiving dish in the United States.

Pumpkin “pies” made by early American colonists had more similarities to being a savory soup served in a pumpkin than a sweet custard in a crust.

Squash soup

Pumpkin soup was a staple for the prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prison camps during the Vietnam War.

Squash soup is a soup in African cuisine. It is a part of the cuisine of Northern Africa, and the cuisines of Mozambique and Namibia, both of which are located in Southern Africa. Squash soup is also served in other countries and is a part of other cuisines. Soup Joumou is traditionally consumed in Haiti on New Year’s Day (January 1), as a historical tribute to Haitian independence in 1804.
