EGG ROLL SOUP

EGG ROLL SOUP

Makes 6 – 8 servings
Tags: soup, pork, carrots, cabbage
NOTES: We liked this a lot!  Regardless of whether it actually reminds you of egg rolls, it does have egg roll ingredients and a delicious and unique Asian flavor.

  • What makes this soup so special is that it’s simmering time is only about 15 minutes or so, and yet it is so flavorful.
  • The optional toppings like scallions or wonton wrappers add flavor and fun.

ROAST CHICKEN WITH CRISPY CHICKPEAS AND KALE

ROAST CHICKEN WITH CRISPY CHICKPEAS AND KALE

Makes 4 servings
Tags: chicken – whole, chickpeas/garbanzos, kale, spinach
NOTES:  A one pan wonder dinner!

  • This was an easy dinner but requires some planning. The chicken needs to be seasoned and refrigerated for a time before cooking but the end result is worth the extra effort.  Salting the chicken and leaving it uncovered in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours (best overnight) is the secret to crispy skin and moist chicken.
  • The addition of the garbanzos to the pan and then the last-minute mixing in of the kale or spinach completes the meal. Let the chicken with the bean/spinach mixture rest for 5 minutes either on the table or return to the oven (oven is off).

MAPLE DILL CARROTS

MAPLE DILL CARROTS

117 Calories per serving
Makes 4 servings
Tags: carrots, vegetables – served warm
NOTES:  An easy classic with a surprising twist – dill.

  • It is sweet but not overwhelmingly so and smells wonderful.
  • We have done it with dried dill and it is very good but of course, the fresh dill is best.

ENCHILADA CASSEROLE

Calories 377 (serving size: 1 wedge -1/4 of the pie)

Makes 4 servings

Tags : beef, tortillas, cheese

NOTES: An easy entree and if you make a few pies, you can feed a crowd.

  • One picture is of the whole pie and the other is a single serving – ¼ of the pie – which is quite filling.
  • It is less like an enchilada and more like a “Mexican lasagna “or an enchilada pie because of its layers – a meat and sauce mixture layered between tortillas topped by some cheese.
  • If you like a little more “heat”, you add some chile, spices or hot sauce.
  • You can make up the filling ahead of time. If you do, make sure that the meat mixture is at least room temperature and better if it is a bit warm before putting it together.
  • Surprisingly the instructions to use 1 cup of the meat mixture on each level was correct – use a measuring cup. The last layer may be a heaping cup but the 1 cup measure works.

SWISS GREEN BEANS

Makes 4 – 6 servings

Tags: green beans, cheese, peppers, vegetables – served cold

NOTES:  Amazing what this recipe does with plain steamed green beans!

  • The list of ingredients is long but don’t let that scare you. It is a really easy-to-prepare make ahead dish.
  • You can take out the cheese if you would like. It is still delicious.
