Great Soup Recipe!!!


LiquerLady....ahh, Kosher and what it really means in the 21st century!?! Is it possible that you could post some healthy Kosher recipes'? Not a challenge, just really curious.

My boyfriend keeps kosher, so any kind of pork or ham is out; instead I use some smoke flavoring at the end to get that smoked meat flavor. Yes, it's real good.

oooh Lizabaker, that sounds really yummy!

Maybe I'll caramelize the onions before I put them in next time. I'm actually out of veggie and chicken bouillion (I normally use those instead of beef) and am waiting for my shipment to come in--I'm trying a different kind of bouillion. My mom does some ordering from Frontier bulk products and she asked if I'd like anything. They have all sorts of spices and they also had bouillion granules. I ordered some chicken and low-sodium veggie. I go through a lot of that stuff. emoticon

Isn't it wonderful when something so yummy is so filling and so good for you?!?

I like the way you used the beef bouillon to replace the often-used bacon fat or ham. Since I don't use processed products much, I might actually leave out the bouillon and use a vegetable stock made with caramelized veggies for that smoky/meaty taste.

I feel so happy, I thought I'd share with everyone my little pea soup I threw together last night.

1 pound dried split peas (green or yellow)
1 medium onion chopped
1 1/2 cups thickly chopped carrots (about 1/2-3/4")
1 TBSP minced garlic
2 small bay leaves
2 cubes beef bouillion
6 cups water (approx)
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Natural salt to taste

I just tossed it all together in a stockpot and let it simmer on the stove for an hour or so (lost track of time doing other things). It's a little thick so I will probably add a little more water next time.

When I plugged it into SP this is what it told me for nutrition info:

Total of 702 calories for the whole batch
127 carbs, 4 fat and 47 protein. I just added up the fiber myself for the individual ingredients and I came up with 45 for the whole batch.

I split it into four servings (although you could do smaller if you want) and it's about a cup to a cup and a half of pea soup for approx 175.5 cals, 1g fat, 12g protein and 11g fiber.

I think it's really filling and leaves room for higher cal items during the rest of the day. :)

Thanks for letting me share.
