Smoky Italian Tomato Bisque

It’s a bit dreary today and tomato soup sounded so good! I had some fry bread leftover from yesterday’s Fry Bread Tacos and they absolutely amazing dipped in the soup. You can easily replace any of the herbs that you don’t like with more of the other herbs, just be careful with thyme. A little goesContinue reading “Smoky Italian Tomato Bisque”

Smoky Tortilla Soup

This is one of my favorite ways of using up extra shredded chicken. 😋 It’s so flavorful and quick! It’s been a hit with my family for a long while and I don’t think that’ll change anytime soon. ❤️  1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1 cup Onion; chopped 1 small Jalapeño; cored and chopped 3 clovesContinue reading “Smoky Tortilla Soup”

Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili

A little bit of a cheat since beans really aren’t part of my diet plan, but I need them in my chili. I made some cheese crisps to use as chips and topped the chili with sour cream, cheese and avocado. So delicious! 2 lbs Ground Turkey 1 cup Zucchini; cored & chopped ½ cupContinue reading “Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili”

Vegetarian Coconut Dahl

I was gifted these beautiful Red Lentils by a friend, so I decided to make my version of Dahl (Dal, Daal, Dahl), an Indian Curry. It’s really hearty and delicious! I don’t make very many vegetarian/vegan dishes, but this is definitely one of my favorites. 1 ½ cups Red Lentils 14.5 oz. Vegetable Broth 13.5Continue reading “Vegetarian Coconut Dahl”

Curried Goat

This was my first time cooking and eating goat, which is odd because we’ve been raising them for years. I’d always heard that it was really gamey, so I made sure to marinade it a good long while. It was amazing and so tender. I’ll definitely be making it again. The turmeric yellow rice andContinue reading “Curried Goat”

Tomato Rabbit & Mushroom Stew

I was going to make Hasenpfeffer with some leftover smoked rabbit, but was missing some crucial ingredients. Bummer! I still made a stew because it’s really cold and grey here. You can also make this recipe with chicken with phenomenal results. 2 lbs Rabbit; cooked and cubed ½ cup Bacon Crumbles 2 cups Mushrooms; choppedContinue reading “Tomato Rabbit & Mushroom Stew”

Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Another cold day calls for more soup. Bacon Broccoli Cheddar this time. I had some cream, broccoli and carrots that I needed to use up, so it was perfect. I made some homemade Garlic Bread to go with it. ¼ Cup Bacon Grease 1 small Onion; chopped ½ cup Celery; chopped 3 cloves Garlic; mincedContinue reading “Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Soup”

Mushroom & Leek Soup

It’s pretty chilly, so this amazing soup really helped fight off the cold. Homemade soup is so much richer and more flavorful than the canned variety. Plus, the leftovers make an amazing tuna casserole. 1 lb Mushrooms; chopped 1 medium Onion; chopped 3 cloves Garlic; minced ½ cup Leek; chopped ½ cup Flour 8 cupsContinue reading “Mushroom & Leek Soup”

Homemade Black Beans

There is no price comparison when it comes to canned black beans and homemade. They’re so much richer in flavor and they’re not as hard as you think to make. You can also cook these in an InstaPot or slow cooker, but I prefer them on the stovetop. I definitely recommend cooking them with brothContinue reading “Homemade Black Beans”

Curried Sweet Potato Soup

Day 35 of the #PantryChallenge  Hey look! It’s soup…again. Still can’t really do the whole solid food thing, so immersion blender to the rescue! I love pureed soups and I added a bit more peppers to try and help clear out my sinuses.  It could have done with a splash of heavy cream, but IContinue reading “Curried Sweet Potato Soup”
