One of my goals this month is to try out two new recipes. I used to get Health magazine and often receive emails from Health with links to workout tips, recipes, etc. The other day I received an email with a link to 8 Hearty Beef Stews. Sounded pretty enticing, so I checked it out.
Here is the link so you can check it out too and get the recipe I made if you are interested!
The soup I made was called Wagon Wheel Beef Soup
Picture from the article
Looks a bit different because I didn't use wagon wheels in my wagon wheel soup...
The soup pictured also looks a bit "heartier" than mine, but I was really happy with how mine came out even though it didn't look the same.
I used the whole wheat bow ties I had already purchased.
Can you see the steam coming off of it?
I was photographing some hot stuff!
Although I though the recipe sounded great, it didn't include any vegetables, so I added some corn and zucchini. I know corn is not the most nutritious vegetable, but the hubs loves it.
I think I would have preferred this to be thicker and more like a stew, but I am sure that could be fixed by adding less broth to it. Or more sauce. I still have a hard time converting my recipes to the metric system, so sometimes the amounts I put in might be off by a bit.
The recipe does not specify how many servings it makes, but with 6 ounces of pasta, I figured it would only be a couple. The amount of soup I got is definitely more than a couple of servings worth. If you make this, invite some friends over to share it with. I think I know what we will be having for dinner tomorrow night too! The great thing about soups/stews is that the leftovers are always just as good!
I am super excited for our German lesson tonight...not really....
but I am hoping to get in a quick pilates session before hubs gets home from work.
