Recipes:

MINESTRONE SOUP

1 lb chicken sausage or 1 lb turkey sausage

6 cups water

2 medium onions, chopped

2 sticks celery, diced

28 ounce can tomatoes, pureed

2 cans 8-ounce tomato sauce

6 teaspoon beef base

1 tablespoon parsley

1 toothpick dip basil essential oil

1 toothpick dip oregano essential oil

1 toothpick dip black pepper essential oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

Brown Sausage, remove grease and add to large pot with all remaining ingredients.  Bring to boil, then simmer until vegetables are cooked. Add: 2 cans frozen green beans and 1 cup macaroni or sea shell pasta.  Continue cooking an additional 25-30 minutes or until pasta is done.

SAVORY BROWN SUGAR SALMON

1 full filet salmon (½ salmon)

For marinade:

1 cup brown sugar (I do about ⅓ or ¼ cup of brown sugar because it is too sweet)

½ cup butter

¼ cups lemon juice

4 drops lemon essential oil

Put Marinade ingredients in a saucepan and warm over low heat, stirring until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.  Divide salmon into two-to-three inch wide steaks. Put marinade in a baking dish and add salmon pieces, flesh side down.  Close bag tightly and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat broiler. Cover broil pan with foil and place fish on pan.  Broil until just flaky, drizzling marinade over fish while broiling.  Turn and broil until skin starts to turn black.  Remove pan from oven.  Lift skin off fish with a fork and discard.  Drizzle with marinade and broil for another minute or two.  Turn again, pouring any remaining over fish.  Return to broiler and cook until fish is a light pink throughout.  Place fish on a serving plate.  Pour sauce over fish. 

PESTO SAUCE

3 cups basil leaves

 3 small or 2 large cloves garlic

1/3 cup pine nuts

2/3 to 3/4 cup olive oil

1 toothpick dip black pepper essential oil

1 toothpick basil essential oil

1 toothpick dip lemon essential oil

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor.  If in a blender, blend 1/2 the ingredients well, then add the rest and pulse blend till pesto has reached the desired consistency.  Add more olive oil if too dry.  If making in a food processor, add all ingredients and chop till well blended and has reached the desired consistency.  Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.  Excellent on pasta, fish, chicken, add to fresh salsa.
