Bet you didn't know what Santa gets Mrs. Claus for Christmas? Santa sends Mrs. Claus a 6 month subscription to Organic Herbal Cooking's Fresh Organic Herb of the Month Club. Santa doesn't have alot of time, so he visit's the website and places his order in a matter of minutes.

Mrs Claus is trying to cook healthier for Santa and the Elves. She loves the easy to follow recipe cards and beautiful photos of each dish.

These fresh organic herbs were shipped today and know they will brighten any gloomy day upon arrival.

Send the healthy gift of cooking with fresh organic herbs...a holiday favorite.

Be well & enjoy,

Carrot & Kale Soup

Cate MacKrell

There is a hint of crispness in the air and on the ground with the fallen leaves. What better time to make a healthy soup to savor. This soup is full of vegetables and Thyme that supply vitamins and anti-oxidants.

The ingredients showcase Fall's colors with carrots, kale, onions and parsnips. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt to add richness. For a heartier bowl of soup, add some small cooked pasta.

Visit organicherbalcooking.com with questions or herb ideas.

Pumpkin Lasagna

Cate MacKrell

This delicious and easy to make dish is so comforting. Pumpkin Lasagna has become a Fall favorite. It holds well and can be made ahead and reheated. The pumpkin and cheeses blend beautifully. This is rare that I post an entire recipe on my blog, but I love Halloween and Fall.

 

 

Ingredients

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 (8 oz.) white mushrooms, sliced

1 medium onion, chopped

2 can (15 oz.) solid pack pumpkin

1 cup half and half

2 Tbsp fresh organic Sage leaves, chopped

Pinch of salt pepper   No cook lasagna noodles

1 cup reduced fat ricotta cheese

1 cup shredded low fat mozzarella cheese

1 ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. In a medium sauté pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onions. Cook 4 minutes until tender. Set aside. In a large bowl combine pumpkin, half and half, Sage, salt and pepper. Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup pumpkin sauce in the bottom. Top with 1 layer lasagna noodles, overlapping slightly. Spread 1 cup pumpkin sauce over the noodles. Add ½ mushroom mixture over sauce. Top with ½ cup ricotta (placing small dollops over sauce). Sprinkle with ½ cup mozzarella and ½ parmesan. Repeat layers. Top with noodles and sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with ½ parmesan. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.

Smashed Oregano Reds

Cate MacKrell

The Oregano in the garden is beautiful. It is flowering and the bees are loving it. Anytime you can attract bees to your garden, be thankful. Lately, there has been a shortage of bees and this has made pollinating fruits and vegetables a problem.

These potatoes were fantastic, not hard to make and the Oregano added that extra level that took them over the top.

Place a dollop of sour cream on top if you like and you're going to smile.

Valentine's Day falls on a Thursday this year, leaving many busy working folks not able to celebrate on the actual day.  Most people have said they will be celebrating Friday night or Saturday this year.  Makes sense!

Shrimp with Mint & Rice Noodles

Cate MacKrell

If you've never cooked rice noodles, you will be surprised at the ease of preparation and the lightness they offer. You don't boil rice noodles, but pour hot water over to soften. They are popular in many Southeast Asian dishes.  They also have less carbs than regular noodles.

I wanted to create a dish similar to favorites I've had in Asian restaurants.  The ingredients are simple and cooks quickly.  Mint was the Herb of choice for this dish.  Mint leaves offered a sweet flavor with a refreshing cool finish.  Mint is readily available and once you have it in your garden, you will never be without!  It is invasive, wants to take over the garden, so keep it under control!

Mint adds a delicious balance to this wonderful dish.

Be healthy & enjoy,

Tamara
