Butternut Squash Soup and Savory 'Cheddar' Biscuits
This lunch is a great example of making food with substitutions and variations. I made this lunch at the home of one of the people in my social bubble who didn't have all the the tools and ingredients I'm used to having on hand. It was absolutely delicious, even if the biscuits were flat! Who cares, really, if they taste good?
I used this recipe, with the following variations.
Soups in a Vitamix are so easy! I fried two yellow onions until they became translucent, and started to brown. I dumped some leftover turkey broth (from the holidays), the onions, roasted butternut squash (peeled, although I recently heard you can eat the skin), a drained can of black eyes peas (for protein, I would have used white beans if I had some), and about a teaspoon of dried ginger. I then added enough water for the Vitamix to be able to do its thing. I left it running at high speed long enough for the soup to become hot (less than 10 minutes). SO GOOD!
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
