Cooking, Cooking, Cooking! It seems like it’s all I’ve been doing the past few days but I’ve been loving it because I know what I’m doing is good for my family and myself. This will be a simple blog day. I have been asked for some of my recipes so here they are. I would love to hear any of your healthy ideas!
Cabbage Curry Soup
2-4 cups of cabbage (I use red cabbage and cut it into strips)
8-12 cups of water (depends on how soupy you want it to be)
4-6 teaspoons of Better Than Bouillon (or 4-6 Bouillon cubes)
3-6 cloves of garlic (crushed)
Curry, season salt, pepper, red pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, basil and tarragon all to taste.
Add Bouillon to water and let begin to boil, add the garlic and spices and let boil while
you cut the cabbage into strips. Add cabbage and let boil for 40-90 minutes. Add all
spices to taste and let boil until the cabbage is the texture you want.
You can also add canned tomatoes to this recipe for a Tomato Cabbage Curry Soup
Tomato Soup2-4 cans of Fire Roasted tomatoes
2-4 cups of water
1/2 can of tomato paste
4-5 gloves of garlic
Season salt, pepper, red pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, paprika, basil and tarragon
(curry, if you want this added flavor) add all to taste.
Add all ingredients into a large pot and let boil for about 20 minutes then let simmer for
ChiliGround meat (whatever you prefer)
1-2 Red peppers or onion whichever you prefer (on our diet we can only have one veggie
at once so I pick just one you can use both if you want)
1/2 or full can of tomato paste
water (just used to add if the meat needs more moisture)
spices- season salt, pepper, red pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, paprika and cumin.
Brown meat then add peppers or onion and spices. Cook for 5 minutes or so then add
tomato paste and a little bit of water. Mix and serve. No cheese on our diet but it’s really
good with cheese on top.
Spices- Curry, season salt, pepper, red pepper, garlic salt, onion powder and paprika.
I like to marinate for about an hour 1st in the same seasoning mixture but you can just add
to cooked meat if you don’t have the time. I put water, garlic and spices in a bowl and let
chicken marinate. Then add meat and half the marinade to a pan and let cook. Serve.
