Lemon Kale Zoodles

lemon sausage

Ingredients:

  • 3 large zucchini, spiralized
  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1/4 cup TJ coconut cream
  • 1 package of Simple Truth organic pork sausage, sliced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat the coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the sliced sausage and sautee until browned (this sausage is already cooked so this won’t take long). Add the kale and garlic and sautee for a minute or 2 longer. Add the spiralized zucchini and cover the pot at low-medium heat, allowing these to cook for about 10 minutes, stirring the noodles about half way through. I don’t like my noodles SUPER soft so cook longer if you want them softer or shorter if you want them firmer. Then add the coconut cream, all the juice from the lemon, and seasonings-mix thoroughly. Allow this to simmer on low temperature for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Ready to serve!

Split Pea Soup

split pea soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb split peas
  • 1/2 lb Applewood Ham, cubed
  • 1 can sliced carrots
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cubed
  • 6 cups of water (to boil peas)
  • 4 additional cups of water (once peas are done)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large lemon

First, combine the split peas and 6 cups of water in a large pot. These are going to boil on medium heat for an hour. The peas will absorb water very quickly so if the water starts running low, add more as needed. After the hour, you should be able to feel the peas soften and “mush” together a bit, with mostly all the water absorbed. Add in the 4 additional cubs of water, chicken bouillon cubes, the sweet potato, onion, and ham. Reduce heat to low-med and cover, letting this simmer for about 45 minutes. Then add the carrots, s&p, and juice from lemon and let simmer for another 15 minutes. Turn the pot off and this will be ready to serve after cooling. 🙂
