I was in the mood for soup, but felt like switching up the traditional Split Pea that i usually make. This is what I did:

Unconventional Split Pea Soup

2 Tbsps olive oil
2 cups yellow split peas
2 carrots, diced small
2 stalks of celery, diced small
1/2 yellow onion, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
2 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
1 14 oz. can fire roasted tomatoes
1/2 tsp. Each cumin and coriander
~1 tsp. Paprika
Saut veggies in 2 TBSPS. Olive oil

Add in Split peas, bay leaves, tomatoes and broth, stir well. Add seasonings.

Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 40-45 minutes. Remove bay leaves.

Use immersion blender, or regular blender to blend and thicken.

Extra delicious with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice right before serving.

I just tasted it, and it痴 delicious.  Probably even better tomorrow.

I made this cold soup today.  I'm posting the original recipe, but I changed it up significantly.


5 cucumbers
1/2 cup chopped parsley Scant 1/2 cup mint
6 scallions, chopped  3 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 quart pint buttermilk
1 pint yogurt 1 cup Greek Yogurt
Salt and freshly ground pepper


Peel cucumbers and cut them in half, scraping out seeds. Sprinkle the cucumbers with salt and let them stand 30 minutes. Drain excess water.
Chop the cucumbers coarsely and put the pieces in the blender along with scallions, dill, mint, lemon juice, buttermilk, and yogurt. Blend at high speed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill well before serving.

Next time I might use all yogurt so it's a little thicker.  I also wouldn't mind a pinch of cayenne in there.  I might add that after it has chilled and the flavors have a chance to blend well.

I've been using this website lately.


Pet peeve: excessive scrolling on so many sites to get to the recipe.

Feeling like I need some new soups in my healthy diet rotation.  This looks good.  Putting it here for future reference.

Butternut squash soup made from leftovers:

Cubed squash
1 cubed potato (skin on)
2 carrots, 1 rib celery, 1 small onion, Clove garlic- all chopped
2 Tbsps. Olive oil
~5-6 cups broth or water
Salt, pepper and seasonings to taste

Saut馥 carrots, celery, garlic and onion for a few minutes, then add squash and potato. Add enough liquid to cover.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for 45 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Allow to cool, then pur馥 in blender. Add seasonings to taste, as soup is bland when plain. I added curry and garam masala, but hot sauce or paprika would be good as well.

DH loved it.

Tortilla soup is one of my favorite things to eat out at a Mexican restaurant--and is sometimes one of the few safe things I can eat.  Every time I order some I think that I need to make a vegetarian version for DS.  Well, this week I finally did.

2 poblanos, seeds and stuff removed, diced
1 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
cumin (I grind my own, Baby!)
Box of No-Chicken Stock
1 can of Rotel
1 can of diced or crushed tomatoes
1 can of chiles
Some tomato paste (I used a tube)
Salt and pepper to taste
Frozen or canned corn
You could add drained, rinsed black beans, but I didn't
Tortilla Chips (the Lime Tostitos would be awesome, but I used Restaurant Style)

In a soup pot , saute the poblano. Add the onion after a couple of minutes. Then add the garlic at some point.  Throw in the cumin.

Then add the tomatoes, Rotel, chiles, No-Chicken stock, tomato paste, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes or so. 

Squeeze one half lime into the soup at some point. 

Cut up an avocado shortly before serving for putting in the soup and garnish with tortilla chips and a lime wedge.

My project for this afternoon:

But as usual, I'm changing it up a bit.  I think it needs to be pureed, so I'll simmer for 1/2 hour until everything is tender, using water instead of veg broth (need to cut salt) and will jazz it up with some smoked paprika and hot sauce.  I'll let y'all know how it comes out.

GN - This rocks!!!  Well so my family tells me.  They loved it!  I'm lactose intolerant so I nibbled a couple veggies for a brief taste.  I used broth and paprika but did not puree it.

So, you guys made me crave beef stew/soup.  I am trying to keep it very simple hoping that the kids will have it.  I can dream!  I would prefer some tomatoes in it, but they will not touch it if I do that.  So, I diced everything small, more like a soup, and used beef, onions, celery, and garlic, all tossed together in the bottom, with some seasonings and salt and pepper.  Layered above are carrots and 3 red potatoes, diced.  I added about 2 cups of bullion, made with 2 beef cubes, and 2tsp worcestershire sauce.  I figure I may have to add water or seasonings, later, depending on saltiness.  I went a bit heavy, so the meat and veggies get flavor, and have room to dilute later.  If it were up to me, I might add more veggies, like mushrooms, or even a simple bag of mixed frozen, but again, trying to entice the kids.  wish me luck.
