Joining in with the 22 Days of PEP! I made Lentil soup/stew/daal. This is the only way my husband will eat lentils and it took me almost 38 years to find.  The recipe changes every time I make it but the basics remain the same:
1 head of garlic (homegrown); 2 onions; some extra ground beef; chicken feet broth(homemade); beef broth(homemade); frozen whole tomatoes(home grown); 2 cups of lentils; water to cover; curry powder and hot pepper flakes. I did not use the canned chilies.  Cook for 45 min.  I made naan bread to go with the lentils. This is my first attempt at a BB in Food.

Chicken soup. I do mine a little differently every time, today, it's:

- some butter...2Tb?
- some bacon, 2 half-strips?
- 1 lb chicken breast (whole at first, chopped after cooked a bit)
- 1 lb chicken thighs (left whole)
- 1/2 sweet onion
- 1/2 lb carrots
- 1/3 lb purple potatoes
- 1/3 lb asparagus
- 2/3 bunch celery
- some leftover quinoa, maybe 2 cup?

(All finely chopped unless noted otherwise. Measurements are either rough or very rough.)

Bacon and butter into the pot first, until bacon crispy. Chicken (salted and peppered) in next, until the breasts are mostly cooked. Out come the chicken breasts, in go the vegetables. Chicken breasts get chopped up, then back in.

Now I started adding some boiling water, little pours at a time, until it's soupy enough. Next quinoa and some thyme and turmeric. Et voila!

Tofu miso soup:
Kombu (died seaweed) - about half a sheet of paper size
Dried shiitake mushrooms - about a handful
miso paste - 3 tbsp
Green onions - 2 chopped
Tofu - 8 oz cumbed

Put kombu and mushrooms in a pot add 4 cups cold water.  Bring to a boil over medium low heat.  After it reaches a boil, fish out the kombu and gently stir in the miso. You can take out the mushrooms too, they get kind of rubbery, but I like em.  Add the white parts of the green onion. Gently boil for a couple minutes the add the tofu.  Turn off off the heat, and let it sit for a minute so the tofu gets warm.  Garnish with the green ends of the green onion.

Split pea soup! Yeah, it’s 90 degrees. But I’m eating it outside!

Rough recipe: 2 cups split green peas. 2 carrots. Celery heart. Couple pieces of smoked pork skin leftover (and frozen) from the last time I made bacon. 2 pints home-canned chicken stock. 3 Tbs “green powder” - basically, a mix of anything green that I’ve dehydrated and powdered, including mallow, dandelion, and other foraged/wild greens. Reishi mushroom powder, also homemade. Herbes saleés: kosher salt layered with various herbs and greens. Enough water to cover. Bay leaf.

Toss it all in the crock pot on high for 5 Hours. At the end, pull out the bay leaf and pork skins. Use an immersion blender until it’s to the texture you want. Check seasonings; I usually add a bit of Tabasco at this point. Eat.

Tonight I made beans and kale with sausage.  You'll be unsurprised to hear that the three main ingredients are beans, kale, and sausage. :)  There's also homemeade chicken stock, herbs from the garden (sage, oregano, parsley, and rosemary) onion, garlic, tomatoes from the garden, bacon fat, salt, pepper, and chipotle salsa.

The sausage and alums are browned in bacon fat, pan deglazed with stock, then the remaining non-green ingredients are added.   Simmer on low for 30 minutes then add the green things.  Simmer on low for thirty more minutes, then serve.

Ingredients assembled:



Smashing garlic:



Tearing kale:



Ingredients in the pot:



Finished stew.

Made soup 'from scratch'.
First I made a bone broth. A friend knows a hunter, who hunts wild geese (that's allowed here in the Netherlands, for certified hunters, because there are too many wild geese). My friend had the freezer overloaded with parts of geese, so gave me some. Those I used to make the broth.


Bones simmering in water with some salt, vinegar, herbs and spices.


The flesh from the bones after cooking for some hours. I will use this in another dish, not in the soup.


All bones after many hours of simmering (partly in my 'hay box')


My 'hay box', there's no hay but a large old woolen blanket in it.


The vegetables that will go in the soup.
You can use any vegetable you like.


Browned the sliced onions.


Added all other vegetables (cut, sliced, cubed)


Added two jars full of my bone broth.


Brought to a boil. Then boiled it on the stove for about half an hour and then put it in the 'hay box'.


Two portions of soup. One for now, the other goes in the freezer for another day. (There was a little more left in the pot too).
