I had a bag of fingerling potatoes and 3 Portobello mushrooms in my refrigerator and decided to get creative.
I love potatoes and usually end up eating them once every 2 weeks (but would honestly eat them every night if I could)!
Although my potato-of-choice is french fries, I try to opt for preparing healthier options.
This is a meal that comes together quickly and is great for leftovers. You can get 12 tacos out of this recipe and still have some of the Avocado Cream sauce to spare.
And, this start-to-finish recipe is ready in less than an hour!
OK, this recipe may look a little advanced but it is actually quite simple. It has quite a few steps but the outcome is positively delicious.
To make the recipe Gluten-Free, try substituting Soyrizo or Tempeh in place of the Chorizo Seitan.
If you don’t have any Herbes de Provence on hand, you can substitute a mixture basil, oregano and thyme.
I love soup. One of the reasons fall and winter are great times of year is that soup is almost always right! Even in Orange County, CA! I love pea and bean soups and have another recipe for Split Pea Soup on the blog but in this version, I use Trader Joe’s 10 Minute Barley in place of the potatoes and leave out some of the seasonings.
When making this soup, it is always about desired consistency. I used 8 cups of water/stock but you can always opt for more or less. It is all up to you and your personal preferences. I recommend starting out with 6 cups and adding more, a little at a time.
This soup can also be made in the crock pot and the dried, split peas can be soaked overnight to cut down on cooking time.
Any questions/comments, please let me know.
