THIS RECIPE IS GLUTEN, NUT, SOY, EGG AND CORN FREE

  • I made soup, I'm not sure what kind, but it was yummy.
  • I peeled sweet potatoes and white potatoes.
  • They sat in cold water until I was ready to chop.

  • I made my own chicken stock with organic chicken on the bone.  




  • I chopped up the sweet potatoes and white potatoes into small pieces. 



  • I drained the potatoes when I was ready to cook them. 



  • I cooked the potatoes in the chicken stock. 



  • Once it started to bubble I lowered the heat to medium and I kept it covered. 



  • When the potatoes were almost cooked I added organic peas.  I thought they might add flavor.  If I could, I would have added onion, celery and carrots and some spices, but I can't due to food issues.  



  • When everything was cooked to very soft I removed it from the heat.  



  • I used the hand blender to blend it all together, right in the pot.  



  • I measured two ounces of chicken to add it to my soup for some extra protein. 



It wasn't exactly sweet potato soup, it wasn't pea soup and it wasn't chicken soup.  So... you can name it whatever you like.  I will call it MY SOUP CONCOCTION.  

It was very good, although, when I told my mom I had added the peas she felt it might be a bit overpowering and she was right.  If I add them next time, I will add less.  


I had it again for dinner tonight.  Soups generally taste better the next day and that was the case here.  I measured 2 cups of soup, 2 ounces of chicken and decided to add 1/4 cup of lentils. 


And again the next day for lunch.  This time I put 1/4 of organic black beans and 2 ounces of cut up organic, gluten-free brown rice spaghetti.  Delicious.  


I must say, my mom makes the absolute best, most amazing homemade sweet potato soup every year on Halloween.  It's become a tradition.  Of course hers has sweet potatoes, white potatoes, celery, onions, carrots, and spices.

I started posting various recipes then IT struck again.  I'm able to eat a little bit more now, not much and we are still trying different things.  (See Why Am I Not Posting Recipes? Because IT Has Started Again!)

How are recipes created?  Through experimentation, out of necessity such as back during WWII when money was tight and not all products were available or simply out of curiosity.

I always loved to cook and I can remember my mom making "concoctions" in the kitchen which turned out amazing and she will still make her unique recipes today.  Her motto was to open up the cupboards and throw whatever you found into the pot as flavor and open the refrigerator and throw whatever you found into the pot as the meal!  It worked!  (See Mom's Delicious Stuffed Cabbage And Stuffed Peppers - Part 2 of Series)

CHANGES TO MY BLOG

  • I peeled and cut an organic sweet potato and cooked it for 10 minutes in a bowl of bottled water in the microwave.  
  • I added organic black beans.

  • I added organic baby food rice cereal.
  • I added Annie's organic gluten free Balsamic dressing
  • I mixed it together with my mixer, the way you would mix mashed potatoes.
  • I formed it into a patty
  • I measured 1/2 a tablespoon of organic butter and heated it in a metal pan.

  • I fried the patty on medium heat in the hot pan, flipping it gently several times.

  • I washed organic Romaine lettuce and laid them side by side.
  • I placed the patty on top of the lettuce.


  • I added a small amount of OrganicVille yellow mustard.  You don't want to overpower the taste with mustard. 
  • I covered the burger with two slice of lettuce on top.
I can't give measurements.  I cook by eye. (See Family, Friends, Food And Fun!)

The meal was gluten, nut, soy, egg and corn free. (See Food Allergy Awareness Week - YOU CAN HELP!!)

Total calorie count for me was 293.  That will vary depending on products you use and how much you use.


It was delicious and very filling and satisfying.  It's almost time for my soups! (See Organic, Gluten Free Chicken, Beef, Vegetable Soup In The Crockpot)


If you want to add other spices, salt, pepper, etc. I'm sure it would taste great.  I don't like black pepper, I don't use salt at all due to swelling, and I can't use many spices.  (See Organic, Gluten Free Crockpot Lasagna in about Three Hours)

Play around with it.  You may want to bake the patty rather than fry it.  All up to you.  

Just thought I'd share something I concocted.
