Don't be put off by the thought of trotters! Pig's feet are simmered long and low to draw out their naturally occurring gelatin and calcium, creating a thick, rich soup that is low in fat and high in flavor and body. Add diced chicken for protein, or serve over egg noodles, potatoes, or with a thick slice of really good bread.
Note that nutrition estimates to the right include nutrition values for the pig's feet if they are eaten in the soup (Spark has done this automatically). This recipe just uses the pig's feet only to boil and to create a stock; actually eating the meat from the trotters is optional and by leaving it out the actual nutritional value may be changed accordingly.Submitted by COOKANDRUN
Cookbook creator says: use maple syrup or honey instead of sugar; can add rosemary rather than the hot spices for a rosemary/garlic flavor; parboil or micro yams first; add parsnips to the recipe, but don't parboil them first (they don't need it)Submitted by LIZZS2NDCHANCE
Cookbook creator says: try using some olive oil rather than all butter; basmati? rice or a texmati mix would be a strong enough flavor to complement the stew. high protein makes the overall calories well worth it!Submitted by AIMEELIZ1
