Curried Pea Soup

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Curried Split Pea Soup is a delicious mild curry flavored soup the whole family will enjoy.
Curried Split Pea Soup.

Tonight I cooked. That is a fun sentence to write, because I have been so out of sorts with this stomach disorder. But finally I am feeling better, and food is once again enjoyable to cook, eat and blog about. It took awhile to find the right medicine to allow my stomach to heal and function at the same time. And while I am not a "medicine" sort of person, I am grateful to have the help!


So let's talk about this soup. I noticed the recipe in this little book of bean recipes, this book printed on coarse paper with no photos, this little paperback cookbook that is but one book upon my shelf of over 700 (and counting!!!) cookbooks. And we are glad I did. This soup is very delicious!


Curried Pea Soup
adapted from:  EASY BEANS
serves 6

olive oil, start with 2 T
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 T curry powder (if you are a seasoned curry fan, by all means add more, if desired)
1 c dried split peas
6 c chicken bone stock
2-3 carrots, peeled and diced*
2-3 stalks celery, diced
1-2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 t sugar
1 t salt
1 bay leaf

2 T flour
1/4 c cold water

In a large soup pot, add the oil, onion and garlic. Saute until onion is softened. Add curry through bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer 1 hour and 15 minutes or until peas are very soft and falling apart. Remove bay leaf.

Increase heat to high, stir flour into cold water until smooth with no lumps. Stir into soup, stirring constantly until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.


Enjoy!

* diced vegetables is my preference rather than sliced. Often times sliced carrots are so large, the only food on your spoon is a slice of carrot.....

Three Grain Date Muffins

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Three Grain Date Muffins with molasses and buttermilk.
Three Grain Date Muffins

Dates, whole grains, molasses and buttermilk. What is not to like? These are really good, and make a great "grab and go" breakfast if need be.

Three Grain Date Muffins
adapted from:  Mostly Muffins
375 degree oven

1 c bran morsels. (like bran buds)
3/4 c boiling water
1/2 c corn meal
1/2 c oat meal


The next time I make these, I will add some chopped walnuts.

1 c buttermilk
1/4 c molasses
1/4 c butter or coconut oil melted and cooled
2 T honey
2 T oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 t vanilla

1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt

3/4 c chopped pitted dates

In a large bowl, combine bran morsels and boiling water, let stand 5 minutes. Stir in oats and corn meal. .

Add buttermilk through vanilla, stirring well.

In a medium bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, soda and salt. Add to the wet mixture, stir to combine well. There will be small lumps, do not over mix.

Stir in dates.







It only looks like the cups will bake over the top, this hearty muffin batter does not rise much, yet the muffins are not heavy. They have a chewy texture from the oats and dates.

Divide into 12 muffin cups, bake 20-25 minutes or until done in your oven.


Cool 5 minutes, remove from muffin tin or tip on their sides to avoid a soggy bottom.

Enjoy!

Roasted Savory Cabbage

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Cabbage is good for you. Yes it is, but the days of being told something is good for you, by a loving parent are long gone for me. And since I am not your parent, those words won't have much value to you, but I hope the cabbage recipe will! Because cabbage is good for you and this dish tasted good as wall.

Right now I am having a bit of a problem with my stomach, and fortunately cabbage is real good for me right now. This is also very simple, it does call for a bit of the Vegetable Bouillon for part of the seasoning, but you could leave that out - but only until you make some! The vegetable bouillon is a wonderful homemade ingredient to have in your kitchen.

Roasted Savory Cabbage
by the seat of my pants
350-degree oven

1 large cabbage, about 2-3 pounds
1 or 2 T Vegetable Bouillon
1/2 c dry white wine
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c Parmesan Cheese

Cut cabbage into 8 wedges, removing some of the core if desire. Place in a large covered casserole or baking dish, drizzle with the olive oil.

Combine the vegetable bouillon and white wine, stir well, pour over the cabbage. Sprinkle with the cheese.


Cover and bake 1 1/2 -2 hours.


I really enjoy cabbage when it has been cooked to that soft and silky stage. It is not necessarily pretty, but it is so delicious!

Enjoy!

My husband said " I love muffins."

We were sitting sharing a breakfast of scrambled eggs and muffins. The carton of muffins had been a gift from a tenant, for us to enjoy.  The carton contained three different flavors and we each had selected the same flavor to enjoy with our eggs. I was sitting there quietly munching eggs and sipping coffee when my husband declares...

" I love muffins".

Well now, who knew? But after that statement, the list of those who knew, now included me.....

I have a few good muffin recipes here within the pages of the blog, along with a few hundred more there, within the pages of all the cookbooks. But historically I have not been a busy muffin maker. Truthfully not a serious muffin fan, at all. But you know when your husband makes a statement like that.......and I have noticed that muffins just taste better when sharing a meal with him.

His declaration of muffin love turns out to be good information, often I have been at a loss of what to bake. This will make future baking so easy! Plus I remembered seeing all these wonderful recipes that sounded so good.

Let's take a look at the ones from your blogs that I have wanted to make.....
