{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Buckwheat barley stew

 

Buckwheat barley stew

Beef barley stew has been enjoyed for centuries because its stewed chunks of meat and chewy, nutty barley taste good, are easy to make and fill you up. Even better, stew meat can be lean and barley is good for your heart, which means that the dish is actually good for you. However, it can be better, for instance by adding more whole grains in the form of buckwheat groats. This increases the heart health power and gives the stew a whole new flavor and texture.
Yields 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound lean beef, cut into chunks
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 10 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup kasha (buckwheat groats)
  • 1 cup barley
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 8 tablespoons grated Romano cheese

Directions:

  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, add the olive oil.
  2. Once it's hot, add the onion and a healthy pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the onion for 12 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the beef and then add it to the pot with the zest.
  5. Cook the beef until done, another 8 minutes or so.
  6. Add the beef broth, kasha, barley, carrots and oregano.
  7. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium.
  8. Cover and cook 30 minutes.
  9. At the last second, stir in the cheese.

Karen from down under shares this one from Filippo Berio

Tomato & Basil Soup

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cooking Time: 10 Minutes

Serves: 4

Quick and simple to prepare but incredibly satisfying. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese just before serving to add flavor.

60ml Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil (ABOUT 2 oz.)

1 garlic clove, chopped

1kg vine-ripened tomatoes, halved (2 1/4 lb.)

2 Tbsp Cirio Tomato Purée  (This is a brand name down under.  If you can’t locate it, just use a good quality Tomato Purée!

50g ciabatta bread, crumbled (1.7637 oz.)

6-8 fresh basil leaves

Croutons to serve

 

1. Put the garlic and olive oil in a large pan and cook gently for a minute. Add the tomatoes, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the tomatoes are really soft and concentrated. Add the tomato purée, 425ml (ABOUT 15 oz.) water and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

2. Bring to the boil, then add the bread and stir until the bread absorbs the liquid. Cool slightly before stirring in the basil.

3. Blend until smooth in a food processor. Adjust the seasoning and serve with croutons and a drizzle more olive oil, if desired.

Cut pineapple into spears; peel jicama and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Place pineapple and jicama in a plastic zip-top bag and add remaining marmalade mixture. Seal and chill at least 8 hours. Remove chicken from marinade and discard the marinade. Drain pineapple mixture. Coat chicken and pineapple with vegetable cooking spray. Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done. Grill pineapple and jicama 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Cut chicken and jicama into thin strips; cut pineapple into bite-size pieces. Combine chicken, jicama, pineapple, strawberry halves, and raspberries; toss gently with Orange-Raspberry Vinaigrette. Serve over lettuce leaves. Yields 6 servings.
