Recipes I've Shared:
My butcher friend gave me the andouille sausage mixture that was left over when he was done stuffing casings. Usually Andouille goes in a casing and into the smoker. I decided to make the bulk, raw sausage into meatballs.
I didn't add any seasoning because the Andouille is pretty highly seasoned already.
Nutrition info is for about 100 grams of porridge.
Adding amaranth, which is high in protein and other nutrients, increases the nutritional value of breakfast grains.
Easy way to get your whole grains. Start them in the crockpot or rice cooker when you go to bed, and you have wonderful porridge when you wake up.
Delicious served in baked wonton-skin cups as an appetizer.

A slightly spicy, nicely-flavored chicken salad. It goes nicely in a wonton cup for a party appetizer.

Black-eyed Peas are supposed to bring luck at New Year's. I figure it can't hurt!
I use 100-grams as the serving size because it's easy to figure out. I usually actually eat about 150 grams in a serving.
This is slightly adapted from "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two" by Beth Hensperger. It's so simple to make and packs a lot of complex flavor.
Makes 4 servings.
Velvety black bean soup like we had in Cancun
Cooked in a clay pot over a low gas flame, these are delicious. Don't be afraid of the lard. A little bit adds a lot of flavor to a big pot of beans. Serving size = 100 grams.
This is not-very-adapted from Diana Kennedy's book THE ESSENTIAL CUISINES OF MEXICO.
Adapted from Gordon Ramsay.
Makes 6 servings of 1/2 cup (just over 100 grams) each
Make these in a silicone muffin pan, then refrigerate or freeze for several days' worth of quick breakfasts.
A recipe from my CSA using this week's bounty.
Serve with Carrot, Potato and Swiss Chard Curry - yum!
When you end up with 2 Gigante Kohlrabies and a couple of regular green and purple kohlrabies from your CSA, you might just turn them into this delicious soup.
The calories are calculated for 100 grams. You'll probably want a 200-300 gram serving. Go ahead! It's low in calories.
This is scaled down from a huge recipe that called for 30 pounds of tomatoes. I had 4.5 pounds. I cooked it down until it was pretty thick and got a little less than a quart.
This light tuna salad with no mayonnaise is adapted from a recipe on the World's Healthiest Foods (www.whfoods.org) website. I've enlarged the serving and cut the calories by more than half.
My CSA box is brimming with huge kohlrabis and turnips. Making them into slaw seemed like an interesting idea. Some daikon radish adds a little zing and radicchio brings color to the mix.
I use Penzey's Balti Seasoning in this recipe. Here's the ingredient list if you're curious (you'll see why I let them do the mixing!):
coriander, garlic, ginger, cumin, dundicut chilies, Ceylon cinnamon, brown mustard seeds, cardamom, clove, fennel, fenugreek, charnushka (kalonji, black onion seed), ajwain, star anise, black cardamom, cilantro, anise seed and bay leaf
I used a globe zucchini from my CSA, but you could use larger regular zucchini, halved and hollowed out.
A great way to use up some of that abundant zucchini harvest!
This is like Tabouli, with extra-nutritious add-ins like edamame, dried cranberries, and almonds. Lots of superfoods here!

A lovely, different, lighter potato salad
A lighter, fresh-tasting version of potato salad.
A hearty salad, great for a main dish or a side. This will keep for a few days and would be great for a potluck or picnic.
A hearty soup with lentils, split peas, brown and wild rice. The base is the Harvest Soup Mix from American Spice Company.
Zippy, a little peppery, crisp and tasty.
Easy to make, easy to grab breakfast food for those days on the run. Protein, veggies, and whole grain -- all in one quick breakfast.
Refreshing, fruity salsa with a litle zing. Great with pork chops, chicken, fish, or . . .
A breakfast concoction of oats, nuts, yogurt and fruit. Easy and delicious.
A velvety soup with natural earthy sweetness and hearty flavor.
This uses light mayonnaise and horseradish for a little extra zing. I'm guessing on the serving size, but I think it's about half a cup.
This is a hearty hot cereal. It takes a while to cook, but does very well on the porridge setting of a fuzzy-logic rice cooker. I think it would work overnight in a crock-pot, but I'm not sure.
