Recipe Share

Our Pastor’s wife shared these first 2 recipes with us and I wanted to pass them along.

Baked Oatmeal

2 c. oats (we use regular, not the quick variety),
1 c. milk,
2 eggs, (I have made it with flaxseed and it is just as good-Dani)
1/2 c. applesauce,
1.5 tsps. baking powder,
1/2 tsp. salt,
1 tsp. vanilla,
1-2 T. cinnamon,
1/2 c. fructose (replace with sweetener of your choice; adjust amount accordingly),
2 small apples, chopped

Combine in medium mixing bowl, stir thoroughly, put into 8×8 pan which has been sprayed with Pam.  Bake about 40 min. at 350 degrees.

Simple Pumpkin Soup

1/2 cup onion                          
3 tbsp. butter
2 cups mashed cooked pumpkin
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup half and half or fat free half and half.

Chop the onions and gently brown with butter in a pan. Put mashed pumpkin
with onions in pan. Add the salt, sugar, nutmeg and pepper. Slowly add chicken
broth and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. To serve, pour into a tureen and
add the cream. Makes 4 to 6 servings

This recipe I got off the internet  it is versatile and so good and easy.

PIONEER STEW: Yield 8 servings
1 ¼ C (1/2 lb) dried pinto or kidney beans
3 C Cold Water 1 tsp salt
½ to 1 lb ground beef or 1 can of chunk turkey or beef (I used seasoned turkey)
½ c onion, chopped
½ c finely diced green pepper
1 can (16 oz.) whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can (16 oz) tomatoes, undrained
½ tsp chili powder
¾ tsp salt
½ c shredded sharp American cheese

In large saucepan, place washed and drained beans, cold water and salt. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer 2 minutes. Return to heat and simmer 1 hour and 15 minutes. In skillet cook ground beef, chopped onion and green pepper until meat is browned and vegetables are tender. Drain off fat. Add meat mixture, corn, tomatoes, chili powder and salt to taste to beans. Simmer 20 minutes. Combine 1 Tbsp flour with 2 Tbsp water. Stir into stew. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese.

This one is unbelievable.  It tastes just like regular fudge.

Pinto Bean Fudge

Mash together the following ingredients:

1 cup of soft pinto beans
¼ to ½ cup milk (you want the consistency of mashed potatoes
1 T. vanilla

In a double boiler melt 6 ounces of unsweetened chocolate and 6 T. butter.  Pour the chocolate mixture into the bean mixture.  Stir until slightly thickened. Work in 2 pounds of powdered sugar. Knead with hands (it will be sticky  and messy) and then spread on a slightly buttered pan. Refrigerate. Makes 3 ½ lbs. you can also add nuts. Enjoy!
