This will last all week.  I think I will freeze some.


Juice & Soup

This is what I made from some of the produce I bought:


Kale, spinach, carrot, green apple and ginger juice.  I drank some of the juice and used the rest as broth for the soup I made.


I used about a cup and a bit of the pulp in my soup…why not?…I asked myself.  I added some of the juice to the pot then added onions, garlic and a bit of the pulp to saute.  I then added potatoes, carrots, smoked paprika, s&p, red chili flakes, thyme, oregano and sage.  I added water to cover veggies then added a cup of pulp from veggies I juiced, pearl barley, 6 bean blend and 2 teaspoons of potato/carrot/ginger soup mix….brought to a gentle boil then simmered.


Mmmm, mmmm good!  There is enough soup to last me a few days…that is if I can control myself and not eat it all in one go…hehehe.

Soup Broth

2 bowls later…yes, I had 2 bowls…LOL.  I’m saving some of the broth for another time to make some spicy rice noodles.  The broth is tasty enough that you could have it on its own.

Smoky Potato Scramble

I do eat more than just home fries and scrambles. Even though I just made one a few nights before, I came across a picture on Facebook. Did it ever look good. I knew I had to make it. So I did what most would do and ask which book it’s from or if the recipe was online? This creation is printed in the Vegan Dinner by Julie’s Kitchenette (page 44)




This is a one pot meal! If you are making mashed potatoes make cook a few extra potatoes for this dish, or left over cooked potatoes will work, that way you don’t need to boil the potatoes first therefore making it a two pot dinner 🙂

It has everything you could want – moist, with a nice crunch to the potatoes,  a nice onion, garlic flavour with a hint of smokiness. It’s truly yummy! You must try this. Trust me: you can never have enough potato/ scramble recipes.


What herbs do you like in your scramble?
