So, plus one for that soup giving me energy and keeping me full ALL DAY! I really liked it and would def. buy it again. It needed some salt, but other than that it was great (if you get past the color!). Nice and thick and certainly hearty. I did have my pecan + pear snack around 2:30 but I have felt content all day with a soup-belly.
For dinner tonight I made one of my favorite quick dishes. I’m calling it simply “Limas and Spinach”. I have made this before on the blog and seriously, it’s not even a recipe. You just take lima beans (I have jumbo dried limas that I soaked overnight then cooked this morning), saute them a bit in some olive oil. Add spinach. Saute til it starts to wilt….and serve! Season of course—I like hot pepper flakes and sea salt. Its soooo easy and so satisfying. There’s just something “fun” about eating jumbo lima beans. I served these with some couscous and mashed “fiesta” cauliflower. I thought I would give this fun orange cauliflower a try when I picked it up from Publix the other day. I mashed it today with some soy milk to make it creamy and used garlic, salt and coriander. I think I added a little too much soy milk though because it turned out a little bit on the soupy side. Still tastes great though! I also had a small plate of raw veggies drizzled with a little Goddess dressing on the side. Clearly I love my veggies!
