DAILY MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
๐ŸŒž Good morning ๐ŸŒž gentle friends!
Let’s get this day started…

POLISH DILL PICKLE SOUP
This is one of the soups I meant to make earlier as my filler soup. Dividing it up into 6 servings (will measure once it is cooled and I add the yogurt) makes it 52 calories per serve.

I substituted turnip for the potato,  added zucchini and kale and am using Greek Yogurt in place of the sour cream…

โ–ช๏ธPut everything except corn starch and yogurt in Instant Pot. 
โ–ช๏ธHigh Pressure 3 min and Quick Release.
โ–ช๏ธMake cornstarch slurry and add to hot soup.   Mix well.
โ–ช๏ธLet cool and stir in yogurt to avoid it breaking or just add yogurt when serving (which is what I do)

NO KNEAD SEEDY ARTISAN BREAD
I am no baker but this bread is one of my favorites. If you like a seedy, chewy, sourdough / caraway style bread – this is fantastic.

Makes 1 loaf – this weighed 842g cooked and I get about 16 slices from it at 72 cal / slice so about like a Dave’s Killer Bread slice…

2 cups self rising flour – if using all purpose flour – add 2tsp (8g) baking powder per cup of flour

2tbsp caraway seeds
2tbsp cumin seeds
2tbsp minced onion
2tbsp Italian Seasoning
1tbsp granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
Season as you like – use different seeds or no seeds – add 1tbsp sugar or honey for a sweeter bread or experiment with adding applesauce or pumpkin to adjust the flavor. It will change the density so you will have to play with it if you want to try those.

1ยฝ cups water
ยพ cup Greek Yogurt

โ–ช๏ธMix dry ingredients.
โ–ช๏ธMix water and yogurt to basically a milk consistency.
โ–ช๏ธCombine wet and dry ingredients and mix into a shaggy dough.
โ–ช๏ธNo kneading, no rolling it out – just combine.
โ–ช๏ธPour into well greased loaf tin.
โ–ช๏ธCover lightly and let proof in a warm place for 45-60min.
โ–ช๏ธBake at 425ยฐ for 20min.
โ–ช๏ธLet cool and cut into slices or cut as you go.

This is fantastic toasted – it has all the nooks and crannies like an English Muffin!

Freezes well.
