Trying New Things

While nursing my family back to health this week, here are some new recipes I tried! Thanks to good eating, vitamins, and taking care of ourselves, we are all back to normal hooray!

FRESH GREEN PEA SOUP

10 oz. frozen peas OR 2 cups fresh
1 cup of boiling water
1/4 cup clean raw cashews or almonds
2 cups of water
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1-2 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon of basil
1/2 teaspoon of dill
(I omitted the last two ingredients and it was fine)

Boil the peas for 2-3 minutes. Then put peas and all ingredients in blender and blend.


MACARONI AND CHEESE
(no butter or cheese)


2 quarts of water
1 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of noodles
Boil first 3 ingredients.
1 cup of clean raw cashews (I used almonds)
2 cups of water
4 oz. jar of pimentos
2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
Blend all these ingredients together. Pour the sauce over the noodles in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with bread crumb and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350.

Actually it was yummy. Husband and Noah ate it and hubby said it was good. The pimentos make the sauce more of a pink color than yellow. I got all the recipes from Rodica (Mrs. Popovs good friend)
