cauliflower soup – Basic Cauliflower Soup

Serving: Yields: 25 cups

 5 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch slices
 3 medium celery stalks, sliced
 3 large onions, chopped, or 3 medium leeks, each cut into 1-inch slices
 1 large garlic clove, minced
 1 can (28 oz.) tomatoes in juice
 1/2 medium cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
 12 ounces green beans, each cut into thirds
 3 medium zucchini (6 oz. each), cut into 1-inch slices
 2 packages (5 oz. each) baby spinach leaves
 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
 2 chicken-flavor bouillon cubes or envelopes
 1 teaspoon salt
 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Coat 8-quart saucepot with nonstick cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, add carrots, celery, onions, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.

2. Stir in tomatoes with their liquid, breaking up tomatoes with side of spoon. Add cauliflower, remaining ingredients, and 12 cups water. Heat to boiling over high heat, stirring occasionally.

3. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until vegetables become tender. Add more salt and pepper if desired.

NOTE: To wash leeks, cut off roots and leaf ends. Discard any tough outer leaves. Cut each leek lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1-inch slices. Place leeks in large bowl of cold water; with hands, swish leeks around to remove any sand. Transfer leeks to colander. Repeat process, changing water several times, until all sand is removed. Drain well.

To retain freshness and nutrients: Keep a 2-day supply of Basic Soup in the refrigerator. Pack remaining soup in 3-cup portions in airtight containers, leaving some head space to allow for expansion. (If you expect to heat soup in microwave, use a microwave-safe container.) Freeze.

To reheat frozen soup: Microwave: Loosen lid on container. Heat on High (100 percent power) 8 to 12 minutes until bubbling, stirring twice. Top-of-stove: Place container under running cold water to loosen frozen soup from sides. Heat frozen soup in covered saucepan over very low heat about 3 minutes until soup begins to thaw. Increase heat to medium; heat about 15 minutes longer until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Note: If using frozen soup to prepare Super Soup, add ingredients during the last 5 minutes of heating. For microwave heating, use a container large enough to hold add-ins.

chicken curry recipe – Jamaican Curried Chicken

Jamaican Curried Chicken

1 whole chicken, about 3 to 4 pounds
Juice of 2 fresh limes
3 large garlic cloves, finely minced
2 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 inch fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced
1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups water
3 medium potatoes, washed and cubed
Suggested Accompaniments:
Mango Chutney
Slices of dried coconut
Fresh pineapple chunks
Orange segments
Ripe bananas

1. Cut chicken in 1 1/2 to 2-inch serving pieces. Squeeze the
juice of the limes into a large bowl of water; wash the chicken pieces
in the water and drain.
2. In small bowl mix the garlic, green onions and ginger; allow
flavors to blend for 30 minutes.
3. Mix curry powder and allspice with sugar and salt. Rub spice
mixture and the garlic mixture onto the chicken. Place in a glass
bowl; cover and allow to “marinate” for 1 hour.
4. In large heavy skillet, brown chicken in hot oil over
medium-high heat. Add the water and potatoes. As soon as liquid starts
to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked,
approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Chicken should be tender and juices
run clear.
5. Dress up curried chicken with accompaniments served with
flair. The usual accompaniment is Mango Chutney, but slices of dried
coconut, pineapple chunks, orange segments, ripe bananas, will do.

Serves 4.
