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”

Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

Waste not, want not. I had some leftover Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Soup from last night, cooked chicken from the Fiesta Salad and cream cheese from the Rangoons that I needed to use. Sounds like casserole time! I love casseroles because you can throw in darn near anything and everything. 2 ½ Tablespoons Bacon Grease ½Continue reading “Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Casserole”

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”

Italian Venison Sausage Soup

Still sticking with lighter dishes to lose a few pounds, so carbs are at a minimum. I love cooking with game meat. Venison especially is really lean and delicious. It wasn’t gamey and went perfectly in this soup. Plus, it comes together so quick that it makes a great weeknight dinner. It’s packed with flavorContinue reading “Italian Venison Sausage Soup”

Chicken & Vegetable Curry

Day 36 of the #PantryChallenge  I had a lot of the Curried Sweet Potato Soup I made last night left over so I repurposed it. Chicken & Vegetable Curry is what’s for dinner! I normally add cauliflower, sugar snap peas and zucchini but didn’t have any on hand.  1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 3 large SweetContinue reading “Chicken & Vegetable Curry”

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”

Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup

Day 26 of my Pantry Challenge. ❤️  I told myself to only make 4 servings. But if I taste something and it needs another flavor I toss it in. Next thing I know, the soup’s doubled. Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup anyone?! I didn’t have any beef broth, so I used the stock from theContinue reading “Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup”
