This is a recipe from the superhero section of The Kind Diet. To me, these are glumkis. They are cabbage leaves stuffed with yummy rice and veggies and they are fantastic. They were a real pain to make, so it will be a while before I make them again, but they were tasty. The leaves kept splitting on me when I tried to peel them off of the head of cabbage. My husband told me, after I was done making them, that if you cut the bottom of the cabbage off, the leaves peel off easy. I will definitely try that next time.

Kind Dinner

I made a dinner that was all recipes from the Kind Diet! I made Sicilian collard greens with pine nuts and raisins, “egg” salad sandwiches, pickles, and chocolate peanut butter cups for dessert. The egg salad reminded of real egg salad, the texture of the tofu was similar to boiled eggs. But maybe that’s because I haven’t had eggs for the past three years. The raisins in the collards gave them a nice sweet flavor. The pickles were a little on the salty side, but still yummy. The peanut butter cups were rich and tasted like a real Reese cup. This was a very satisfying meal.

Plum Soup

Today I made plum soup from The Kind Diet and it was delicious! Baby J and I went to the farmer’s market this morning to get some kale, but our kale man wasn’t there! But the orchard man was, so I picked up some plums and, Baby J’s request, blueberries. My daughter,A, went to visit Michigan State University with her aunt, so it was just Baby J and me.
When we got back I wanted to make the soup, but my hubby had finished the apple juice, so Baby J and I went to the store on another adventure. We got the juice, came home, and baby J took a nap. But I had time to make plum soup, so stay out of my way!
It’s a very easy recipe. Simmer apple juice and a cinnamon stick, this smells fab by the way. Then you add in the plums, simmer some more, add in brown rice syrup and kuzu, and stir. Done! That was easy.
The taste reminded me of autumn, probably from the cinnamon. It was warm, comforting, and delicious! I really enjoyed this little treat from the superhero section of The Kind Diet and I plan on sharing this with my little man when he wakes up from his nap.

Hey, gang! I know it has been a while since I last posted and I’m sorry. I started classes to finish my degree in psychology and that and being a mom takes up a lot of time. But, I still found time to make this yummy dish from The Kind Diet.
These are pretty easy to make and they are a great way to sneak sea veggies into your kid’s meals. I left the corn out, because Baby J is allergic to it. The phyllo dough was a little dry, but I got it to roll up fine.

I think that this was a nice superhero side to add to any meal.
