Fast Tomato Sauce from Arrows

Crockpot Dal (Indian Split Pea Soup) Recipe
1 lb Dry yellow split peas
2 Celery stalks; chop fine
1 lg Carrot; chop fine
1 med Onion; chop fine
2 tb Sweet butter
1 tb Curry powder
1 tb Lemon juice
1 Bay leaf
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Chicken bouillon cubes
2 qt Water

Place all ingredients in crock pot, stir, cover, cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. Garnish with chopped green pepper. YIELD: 6 servings

Recipe Notes 5/29: I am making this today, and adding chicken. Probably just going to cook on the stove top – very much like my Lentil Soup recipe. Hoping the peas turn out OK… maybe they NEED 9 hours??


Mahimahi With Citrus (From the South Beach Diet – Phase 1)

Mahimahi is a sturdy fish that stands up well to pan or grill cooking. Whatever way you choose to cook it, the tangy citrus and toasty garlic flavors will come through beautifully. Turn leftovers into Mahimahi Salad by adding chopped cucumber and scallion and a drop or two of mayo; in later Phases, you can serve it on a crisp slice of whole-grain toast.

Serves 4

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes (includes marinating)

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless mahimahi fillets, about 3/4” thick

Whisk together oil, lemon juice, lime juice, garlic, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Place fish in a shallow dish, drizzle with citrus mixture, turn to coat, and marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Heat grill pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve hot.
