As I mentioned in the previous post, the past couple of weeks have been super busy. That means no healthy recipe for last week, BUT I did have some healthy dishes while I was out of town. I should have taken a picture.
For this week, Pete and I made harvest soup. We got a soup mix at an Amish store in TN while visiting my parents a while back. I’m kicking myself for not looking at the full list of ingredients for the mix, but I think it was a variety of lentils, rice, split peas and maybe some other bean. It was colorful.
Here’s the recipe:
We made a couple of adjustments. We added a vidalia onion that Pete got at a produce stand, and I added veggie meatballs I already had instead of making some other meat. (He calls them protein balls.) The soup came out more like a stew. The rest of our meal consisted of corn (which Pete was really excited to make after buying a corn peeler) and some fresh bread that he made in the bread machine.
If I were to make this again, I would have cooked the carrots first since they were a little crisp. I would also make the pieces of cabbage smaller. All in all, I liked it, which is good since we have a lot left.
