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!

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.

Apple-Cinnamon Muffins
These healthy apple-cinnamon muffins will put you in an autumnal state of mind no matter the time of year. Sprinkling the muffins with sugar before baking gives them a crispy top, just like a coffee-shop muffin–but these are a whole lot more nutritious than your average coffee-shop muffin, thanks to wholesome ingredients like white whole-wheat flour. Serve them for breakfast or a grab-and-go snack……

Fried Apple Pie Rolls
In this healthy take on apple pie, egg roll wrappers stand in for pie crust, saving you calories and the headache of rolling out dough. We like to use Granny Smith apples because they hold their shape and provide tart balance to the sweet filling. Try dipping these handheld crispy treats in whipped cream…..

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Buying Butternut Squash…………

Look for a squash that feels heavy for its size; one with a fat neck and small bulb will have the smallest seed cavity, yielding the most meat. Butternut squash should have a hard skin without bruises or mold. (A darker-colored spot indicating where the squash has been resting is fine).

Buying Acorn Squash……………

Look for an acorn squash that is heavy for its size with smooth, dull skin and no soft spots. A good balance between green and orange coloring is optimal. Avoid: acorn squash that has shiny skin, which indicates it was picked before full maturity, unless the producer has applied wax.
