Instructions
  1. The night before, rinse the beans, then cover with water and soak overnight. The next day, drain the beans.
  2. In a large pot, add the water and salt and bring to a boil. Add the ham bone, beans, onion, celery, carrots, garlic, mustard and bay leaves. Give a stir and reduce heat and simmer for an hour or more.
  3. Remove the ham bone. My dogs love these yummy leftovers. At this point, add the chopped ham and the ground pepper, and simmer for another 30 to 45 minutes.
Recipe Notes

This is a great soup to make ahead, enjoy some now and freeze some for later.
Enjoy!!!

  1. Cut up tomatoes into bite sized pieces. Slice cucumbers and I usually cut the slices in half. Slice onion and pull apart into smaller pieces.
  2. Add the veggies into a bowl. In a smaller bowl, add the oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning mix to taste. Whisk together and add to the bowl of veggies and toss to mix.
  3. Enjoy this simple but beautiful salad as a side to any of your favorite dishes. Shown here being served with a Mahi Mahi grilled burger. This is one of our go-to sides in the summer when tomatoes and cucumbers are plentiful.

I made this yummy salad right after the new year because I was craving clean and fresh and I happened to have mangos, which I don’t usually, so what a perfect pairing. Try it out and see what you think. I’ve eaten most of this as a quick meal that’s light, clean and full of flavor. I adapted the original recipe from something I saw on Food52.

  1. Cook the quinoa: In a saucepan bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook until most of the water has been absorbed, which takes about 15 minutes. Fluff it up with a fork.
  2. Chop the onion and set aside.
  3. Pit and slice the mangos. Squeeze the mango seeds as there is quite a bit of juice and add to the mangos.
  4. Make the dressing. Whisk the juice, oil, ginger and salt and pepper together.
  5. Mix the quinoa, mango, beans and cilantro or parsley together. Place the greens on a plate, top with the quinoa mixture, add some onions and avocado slices and drizzle with the dressing. Add further salt and pepper if you desire. Enjoy…so yummy!
