Its taken many muesli disasters to perfect this sugar-free, low fat muesli bar recipe. And make them nice & chewy too. AND I'm not quite ready to divulge the secret recipe - but you can buy them at my stall at the Taranaki farmers Market each week (-;
I don't have a vegie patch as we dont have that big a section so I have crammed what I can into a small planter. I have oregano, rosemary, Italian parsley, curley parsley, basil & these little babies. I SERIOUSLY did not think my strawberry plants would even flower let alone get to this stage. I am waiting for sticky little hands or beaks to pluck my strawberries away at any moment.
Woke up to a big bunch of silverbeet on my doorstep the other morning (thanks Nelly)& had a rustle round in the cupboards & found some risoni (rice shaped pasta) & came up with this recipe for a nice healthy broth like soup. I luckily had a roast chicken carcass & made the chicken stock base from scratch. Good liquid stock or Massels cubes can substitute. I felt very healthy after eating it!
CHICKEN SILVERBEET & RISONI SOUP
1.5-2 litres of good chicken stock 2 cups of clean sliced siver beet leaves Diced red capsicum or carrot or celery 1/2 cup risoni pasta
To make a good chicken stock boil a cooked chicken carcass in 2 litres of water with a whole carrot, whole peeled onion, salt & pepper, 1 bay leaf, sprig of parsley for 1/2 hour. Strain and this is the base of your soup. Add the risoni for 5 minutes then the silverbeet 5 mins later. add lots of salt n pepper. really nice served with Pita bread with some parmesan cheese on top. YUMMO!
