๐Ÿฒ SKINNY PICKLE SOUP & SEEDY ARTISAN BREAD |๐Ÿ  TUNA, AIR FRYER OKRA & ASPARAGUS

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.

โ–ช๏ธ Chicken Stock
โ–ช๏ธ Dill Pickle Juice
โ–ช๏ธ Dill Pickles
โ–ช๏ธ Zucchini
โ–ช๏ธ Kale
โ–ช๏ธ Rainbow Carrot
โ–ช๏ธ Turnip
โ–ช๏ธ Garlic / Ginger
โ–ช๏ธ Greek Yogurt

https://noblepig.com/2013/03/dill-pickle-soup
https://www.lavenderandmacarons.com/dill-pickle-soup-polish-zuppa-ogorkowa

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.

๐Ÿ†• – the Sam’s Club Pesto is so good… Probably my favorite I’ve tried in the last few years… If you like Pesto – it’s definitely worth a try.

โ–ช๏ธ Roma Tomato
โ–ช๏ธ Duck Eggs (local farm / yolk only)*
โ–ช๏ธ Tajin Hot Sauce ๐Ÿ†•๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

๐Ÿ†• – I am not a fan of the texture of the cashew cheese spread. The flavor was okay but it is a bit gritty. I thought combining it with other foods might make it better, but I think I will take it down to Sandy and see if she likes it.

I never knew Tajin made a hot sauce and this I quite liked. It tastes like Valentina Hot Sauce (which is my favorite) with a little lime. Very nice!

๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸฆŠ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

** I eat yolks only due to a histamine reaction to egg whites – but I generally cook them whole, then remove the whites **

๐Ÿ”˜ Eggs beautifully poached in
ExcelSteel 2 Egg Poaching Pot
Bring water to simmer (not rolling boil)
Spray egg cups with cooking spray or oil
Crack 1 egg per cup – duck eggs / jumbos just fit
Cook over MED heat for 4min
Remove immediately (pan, cups and lid will be hot ๐Ÿ”ฅ)

Or try these other methods:

๐Ÿฅš PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 6 min (or duck eggs for 7 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

If you prefer hard boiled (but not chalky super done yolks), increase time to 9min for chicken eggs and 11min for duck eggs.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 3-5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.
