Well- I still cook all the time and make yummy healthy food- so I figure since I don’t get around to blogging that much- the least I can try to post some of my recipes as I make them.
Today’s soup/stew is so yummy! I couldn’t help but keep taking spoonfuls of it as it was cooling. (I made it ahead and we will officially eat it tonight for dinner.)
Thanks to my friend Nicole for offering to bring me some that she had made when I was sick this week- and inspiring me to ask her for the recipe so I could use up the Kale I had in my own fridge instead!
Of course- you know I always do something a “leetle bit” different. Below are the things I did differently. ENJOY!
I used ground italian turkey sausage
No chile pepper
Put Rosemary in as full sprigs and pulled them out after everything was cooked
I was out of cumin so I used a spice called “Galena Street” by Penzeys
I used 1 2/3 bundles kale- one Tuscan and one Dinosaur and I pre- wilted them with some water in a separate pan before adding to the stew
I used white cooking wine
Replaced 1 cup of water with a can of diced tomatoes with Italian herbs
1 cup dry red lentils/ I cooked them separate in my pressure cooker like usual and added last and simmered for 5-10 minutes more
Added a package of broccoli since we had some we needed to use up- added it when I added the other veggies (onions etc)
