Split Pea Soup and a Good Book

Hot soup and a good book is a winning combination.This hearty and satisfing soup does the trick to chase away a gloomy day. I  like to add extra veggies to my soups to add layers of flavor as well as the added benefit of more vegetables to my diet.

Creamy Split Pea Soup

Creamy Split Pea Soup

1/2 package of dry slit peas

1 32 oz. carton of vegetable stock

32 oz. of water

1 carrot diced

1 stalk of celery diced

1 clove of garlic minced

1 small onion diced

1 teaspoon extra vigrin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Option – add chili pepper flakes to spice up the soup

Rinse the split peas well, until the water runs clear. You can also soak the peas for an hour or so but it is not necessary. Add onion, celery,carrots and garlic to the small amount of oil in the bottom of your pot, cook until onions are clear and tender. Add in the peas, stock and water, cook on medium high heat until soup begins to boil, reduce heat, cover and let simmer for 30-45 minutes until tender.  For a smoother soup blend in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.

Mediterranean Salmon Salad from Diet and Nutrition blog

I found this on a Diet and Nutrition blog and had to share. Enjoy

Recipe Repeat: Mediterranean Salmon Salad

Oh how I love this salad. I’ve posted this recipe in the past but I’ve been making it so often I just had to repost it.

We had friends over for dinner and when I asked what type of food they wanted the only request was “something healthy”. I knew exactly what to make. What I love is how easy this recipe comes together.

The first step is to make the recipe for Becky’s Dressing. I like to to make it about an hour before dinner so the flavors have time to blend.

Lucky for me I had a very eager kitchen helper. M told me it was her job to make the dressing perfect;)

While M stirred her little heart out, I placed the salmon under the broiler, boiled the orzo, and chopped up the onion, peppers, artichokes, & olives.

While the salmon was cooling I drained the orzo and poured 1/4 cup of dressing over it. I added the onion, feta, olives, artichoke, & peppers and mixed it all together. Next I gently mixed in a combo of baby spinach & arugula.

The last step was to top it with the shredded salmon.

I served it with the leftover dressing on the side and sliced French Bread.

I highly recommend making this for dinner. It’s delicious:)

Dreamfields Elbows with Prosciutto Marinara

I found this on the Dreamfields site. They have so many great ideas.

 

Elbows with Prosciutto, Olives and Marinara (Gobetti alla Boscaiola)

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
1 box Dreamfields Elbows
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped red onion
3 ounces prosciutto or cooked ham, cut into thin strips
1 jar (26 ounces) marinara sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons pitted Kalamata olives, halved
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and prosciutto; cook 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Stir in marinara sauce, parsley and olives. Simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain and return to pan. Add sauce; toss. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

Note: Make chopping easy by using a kitchen scissors—chop everything from snipping herbs, slicing ham and cutting olives in half.
