Fruits of my labour

If you read my post yesterday you will know that I was trying new recipes yesterday and today. I took some photos of the recipes that I made and I thought I would let you know how they turned out.

Zesty Spinach Soup
I really like this soup. I would not say that it is really zesty, but it is really tasty.
Calories per serving - 169
I will definately be making it again. In the soup is the following:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Red Onion
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Low Sodium Chicken Broth
Chicken Boullion Cube
White Kidney Beans
Curry Powder
Baby Spinach Leaves

Morning Berry Strata
This was delicious also! After I took the photo I ended up putting it back in the oven for about 10 more minutes so when it was done it was a little more golden brown. I found it hard to get the center of it cooked so next time I will make it in 2 smaller dishes and see how it turns out.
Joey liked this but he put syrup on it. He said it was too healthy. LOL Funny Guy. He said it tastes like French Toast with berries.
When I ate it I put a dallop of Citrus Spread on top.
Calories per serving - 237
Here are the ingredients:
Egg Whites
Skim Milk
Maple Syrup
White Pepper
Yogurt Cheese
Fig Jam (I didn't have any)
Sourdough Bread
Lemon Juice
Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries

Citrus Spread
I made this yesterday and LOVED IT! I can see me using it in many different ways. It can be used as a spread on toast, dip for fruit, and on the Morning Berry Strata. The sky is the limit with this one.
Calories per serving - 35
Here are the ingredients:
Yogurt Cheese
Agave Nectar (I used agave syrup)
Grated Orange Peel
Brown Rice Meatloaf and Lemon & Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes
Both of these recipes were really good also. Both were full of flavour.
The Brown Rice Meatloaf has Low Sodium Soya Sauce in it and I don't think it really needed it so next time I will make it without the Soya Sauce.
Calories per serving 149
Here are the ingredients:
Lean Ground Turkey
Cooked Brown Rice
Yogurt Cheese
Red Onion
Red Pepper
Low-Sodium Soya Sauce
Sea Salt, Black Pepper
Lemon & Cinnamon Sweet Potatoe
These smell absolutely wonderful while cooking and they taste great too. I probably would not make these all the time but they would be a nice treat every now and then when I am looking for something different.
Calories per serving - 148
Here are the ingredients:
Sweet Potatoes
Apple Juice
Agave Nectar (I used agave syrup)
Lemon Zest
Sea Salt
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of 1/2 Lemon

So the only thing left for me to tell you about are the Maple Syrup Crockpot Beans. There is not too much to say other than they didn't even make it to the crockpot. I soaked them overnight like the recipe said and then I had to change the water and boil them for 1 hour or until tender. I checked to see how they were doing 40 minutes into simmering them and they were like mush. So I tossed them in the compost. I will try again next weekend. I think I will also try the Vegetarian Chili.
