Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden. It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of…

Lentil Stew

Lentil Stew by Salad Foodie

Chock full of vegetables this stew is satisfying and hearty. Lentils originated in the Middle East and are one of mankind's oldest foods. Unlike Esau I would not give up my birthright for a bowl of lentils and a bread loaf (Genesis 25:34) but this soup is well, stew-pendous! It's based on a recipe from The Daniel Plan Cookbook by…

Crock Pot Chicken Stew

Crock Pot Chicken Stew by Salad Foodie

The perfect Sunday evening supper, this basic stew is pure comfort fare! What I enjoy particularly are the ease of preparation, large chunks of chicken, and the light yummy gravy. Based on a recipe from Taste of Home Magazine, this recipe uses boneless skinless chicken thighs. I have used a meaty turkey thigh in place of chicken:…

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup

Tex-Mex Meatball Soup by Salad Foodie

A hearty and colorful soup which can be cooked in about 30 minutes. Choose your meat type - beef, sausage, poultry, or a blend if preferred. Using crushed tortilla chips in meatball mixture is a nice way to bump up the corn flavor as well as use up the chip crumbles too small to serve.

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (with Pressure Cooker Option)

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (with Pressure Cooker Option) by Salad Foodie

Inspired by a recipe from New Paradigm Cooking (Sandbach, Terranova and Ware), I chose to forego the cookbook’s recommended 30 minutes simmering time in a stockpot, for a pressure cooker rendition which cut the cooking time to well under 10 minutes…

Cream of Vegetable Soup

Cream of Vegetable Soup by Salad Foodie

A good base comfort soup for the winter season. Cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, onions and garlic predominate, but you can rifle through the veggie bin and sub out others like spinach, zucchini, parsnips, etc. and you can increase or decrease the ratios of vegetables to your preference. About 9 cups of raw vegetables are needed. When…

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Chicken Chili

Chicken Chili by Salad Foodie

Classic comfort foods can be made healthier without giving up on good taste. Case in point - this Chicken Chili recipe. Fat is reduced in the sautéing of vegetables and by substituting chicken for beef. But there are plenty of flavors going on here so you won't ask "Where's the beef?" Based on a recipe from Patti LaBelle's Light…

Mediterranean Beef Minestrone Soup

Mediterranean Beef Minestrone Soup by Salad Foodie

This feeds a crowd and then some. Hearty and healthy. Start this slow simmering soup early afternoon to have it ready for dinner, so there's time to develop the flavors. Or better yet, cook a day in advance and let the flavors sing next day. I take time to cut the meat and veggies in small pieces as this is a soup, not a stew, and the…
