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.

๐Ÿฅš EGGY TOAST & SAUSAGE
I was recommended to try a new (to me) egg poaching pan instead of doing soft boiled eggs. My friend Kim swears it would be perfect – runny yolks, whites completely done (which makes them easy for me to separate since I can’t eat the whites for histamine reasons)

I have tried lots of poaching techniques over the years, both microwave and stovetop and just never got a result I preferred over soft boiling.

Well she was right ๐Ÿ˜‚ PERFECT first time (see daily video)

It will be ๐Ÿ”ฅ SUPER HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ when it comes out… Use a towel or mitts and cut open to cool. Once cool enough to handle, scoop out the seeds with a spoon and enjoy.

* Delicata, Honeynut, Red Kuri and Sweet Dumpling Squash can be enjoyed skin on. They take less time to cook sometimes too.

* Small / young Butternut or Kabocha Squash skin can be eaten but may be tougher.

* Large Squash especially including thick skin varieties like Acorn and Spaghetti Squash are not intended to eat the skins.

NO STICKY HANDS PREPARATION
Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a fork or small spatula. Lightly spray your baking sheet or lay down some parchment paper and turn your dough out onto the tray. Using the fork/spatula, shape the dough to the thickness and diameter you want. Top with an egg wash and additional seasoning if you’d like. Bake and enjoy!

This just feels like a soup day – I have tons of fresh Kale and Gold Potatoes so Zuppa Toscana it is!

There are so many adaptations you can do with this to get it as “skinnified” as you want:

MEAT: Use turkey sausage or turkey crumbles if you want – or use 99% lean ground turkey or chicken breast for the lowest calories but be sure to extra season as it doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own.

DAIRY: I’ve seen heavy cream, half n half, evaporated milk, 2% milk and unsweetened almond milk used in various recipes

POTATO: If you want to replace the potatoes, I’ve seen cauliflower, turnip, radish and parsnip swaps
