Easy Lemon Lentil Soup with Spinach

Ingredients

* 1 1/2 cups red lentils, rinsed

* 1 cup chopped tomatoes with their juice

* 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

* 1/4 teaspoon turmeric

* 8 whole garlic cloves, peeled

* 4 slices fresh ginger (each about the size of a quarter)

* 1 sprig fresh rosemary

* 1 bay leaf

* 10 ounces (1 bag) washed baby spinach

* 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

* Coarse sea salt or kosher salt to taste

* Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Combine 6 cups of water with the lentils in a 3- to 4-quart saucepan over high heat. Skim off the foam as the lentils begin to boil. Add tomatoes, oil, turmeric, and garlic. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Wrap ginger, rosemary, and bay leaf in a piece of cheesecloth, tie it closed with kitchen string, and add to the pan. Simmer until the lentils are tender and the garlic is soft; discard the cheesecloth.

Add the spinach and simmer until wilted. Stir in the lemon juice. Crush the garlic against the side of the pot with the back of a spoon and stir so that it melts into the soup. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.

------------------------

Except you should crush or finely chop the garlic and let it sit for 10 minutes or so before cooking, rather than cook whole. Crushing the cells activates enzymes that start converting compounds into their most usable, potent form and would otherwise be prevented by cooking and destroying the enzymes. This applies to onions and apparently to many other plant foods foods. See this about whfood.org's food of today, collard greens:

Acne-Free Spaghet-ti!

Gluten/Casein/Sugar/Soy/Nut/Egg-Free - Low-Protein/Carb, High-Fat

serves 1

1 zucchini

1 can pure tomato paste

2 tbspns olive oil

1 pinch sea salt

1 pinch apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar

1 dash hot sauce

1 pkg chicken or turkey sausage gluten-free

1 tsp tamari soy sauce gluten-free

1 tsp ghee

1/4 cup water

Turn on an element to low-medium and add ghee and water. Place a couple sausages in the mixture and cover.

I have a small peeler that creates thin noodles, so I peel the zucchini and make spaghetti out of it. It takes less time to prepare than cooking pasta, it's raw too - much less processed! I combine the olive oil, sea salt and zucchini 'noodles' and mix well. The oil and salt slightly soften the 'noodles' and they'll end up al dente.

Check on the sausages. Flip them over. Adjust heat if necessary. When one side of them browns, flip them over and add the GF tamari, cover again. Once the other side is brown, turn off heat and place sausages on cutting board to cool.

Next I add a heaping teaspoon of tomato paste to the 'noodles'.

I add the clear yellow fat from the sausages to the spaghetti mixture. I'm used to a high-fat diet so if you want to skip this step, feel free =) but it does make it taste wonderful.

Cut up the sausages. Add some and put the remainder in the fridge, remainder of tomato paste as well. Finish with a pinch of vinegar and hot sauce for digestion; bon apetit!

I just ate this, and oh man...better than pasta.

Do your dishes yo!

Canadian Pea Soup

1 pork shank (I used the meaty bones of a bone-in salted ham I got on sale and prepared for family dinner @ Easter, therefore I added small cubes of ham in with the veggies)

3 quarts water

2 1/2 cups peas

1 medium chopped sweet onion

1 medium grated carrot

1 bay leaf

Soak and rinse peas for 10 minutes in lukewarm water.

Combine first 3 ingredients and boil gently for 3 hours. Add vegetables and simmer for 1/2 hour more.

This soup is delicious. If you have a large bone-in ham, I would suggest doubling this recipe, as it is really very good and makes for quick meals on nights you can't cook. Healthy!

Canadian Pea Soup....

You mean dried split peas, right? Not fresh? I love split pea soup. It's not a Canadian thing, though it is kind of a cold weather thing.

I think this a good thing to do with fresh or frozen peas:

Veggie Puree Soup

Just boil up some aromatics like onion, garlic, carrot, along with peas and a potato, then puree. You can use any veggies you like, but I think the texture and color is nicest when it's primarily peas and a bit of potato.

Also, you get more flavor for soups if you saute and even brown the onions, garlic and other hard veggies first, then add water to boil other veggies. Also, that way you can make sure the hard things get cooked without overcooking the softer things.

The recipe was called Canadian Pea Soup! I'm not being patriotic lol :)

That soup sounds great... although i seem to have a problem with onions.

I use this safetoeatfood brand with:

83% tomatoes

14% tomato puree

1.5% extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt

Black pepper

Can't be safer than that

If you want to make your own just put some tomatoes and a clove of garlic with a small bit of olive oil and puree into a blender, that's what I do :)

Kale & Potato Hash From EatingWell Magazine October/November 2005

A variation of a mashed potato and kale dish traditional in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe. Do this with sweet potatoes instead or in combo. And you can use frozen chopped greens

Serve as a side with a steak or pork chops or set a poached egg on top for a hearty breakfast or brunch.

Makes 4 servings, 1/2 cup each

ACTIVE TIME: 35 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes

8 cups torn kale leaves (about 1/2 large bunch; see Tip)

2 tablespoons horseradish

1 medium shallot, minced

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups cooked shredded potatoes (see Ingredient note)

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1. Place kale in a large microwave-safe bowl, cover and microwave until wilted, about 3 minutes. Drain, cool slightly, and finely chop.

2. Meanwhile, mix horseradish, shallot, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Add the chopped kale and potatoes; stir to combine.

3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the kale mixture, spread into an even layer and cook, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes and returning the mixture to an even layer, until the potatoes begin to turn golden brown and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes total.

NUTRITION INFORMATION: Per serving: 240 calories; 12 g fat (2 g sat, 8 g mono); 0 mg cholesterol; 30 g carbohydrate; 6 g protein; 5 g fiber; 244 mg sodium.

TIP: Tip: A 1- to 1 1/2-pound bunch of kale yields 16 to 24 cups of chopped leaves.When preparing kale for these recipes, remove the tough ribs, chop or tear the kale as directed, then wash it--allowing some water to cling to the leaves. The moisture helps steam the kale during the first stages of cooking.

Ingredient Note: Fresh, partially cooked, shredded potatoes for hash browns can be found in the refrigerated produce section and sometimes in the dairy section of most supermarkets. Alternatively, boil potatoes until they can just be pierced with a fork but are not completely tender. Let cool slightly, then shred.

Here's a good recipe. very simple..

Half of organic canned pinto beans ( Microwave for 40-50 sec thus will vary on the person )

( I usually add cold water into beans and let it sit for a min which will lower sodium a lot! )

1 ezekiel tortillaz ( warm it!!! It's delicious )

Lettuce

half of avocados

Warm tortillas then add beans, lettuce and avocados on top, close it, and enjoy. :)

I know that this recipes is everywhere.. but it's not posted here. :)

Yesterday was my first time doing this.. and man.. it was great. :)

Mix a can of low sodium black beans, kidney beans, white beans, corn and diced tomatoes and throw in some taco seasoning. Tastes amazing and is gluten and dairy free!

This recipe might break you out if you are alergic or can't eat legumes and beans. :0

Throw it all in a pot and throw it on the stove for 10 min!
