Kashi and vegetable meat soup


Kashi has been a pioneer in making tasty innovative health food dedicated to nutrition. Their products are wholesome, natural and include seven whole grains. All Kashi products have natural source of protein, fiber, whole grain and nutrients. The products are low in saturated fat and has no trans fat, artificial flavours, hydrogenated oils or cholesterol.

My first experience with Kashi was their cereal a few years ago, which became a favourite.
Kashi toasted cinnamon crisp cereal is a new addition to the Kashi line of products since January 2012.


The Kashi pita crisps is a light, crunchy cracker made with natural ingredients, 7 whole grains and sesame blend. The flavourful crisps come in 2 varieties original 7 grain sea salt and zesty salsa.
The pita crisps can be eaten on it own or served with hummus, dips, soup etc...
I served it as a side with this vegetable meat soup and we finished the whole packet of pita crisps :)


1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp coriander seeds
3/4 tbsp cumin seeds
1/2 tbsp fennel seeds
1/4 tbsp pepper seeds
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 cup of meat with bones or more
1/4 cup of each carrot, cabbage, beans, celery, onion, tomato
3 to 4 cups broth or water

Grind the coriander, cumin and fennel coarsely or fine depending on your preference. If you want to taste the whole spices then grind coarsely and if you don't like to taste the whole spices grind it fine.
Heat the oil, add the ground spices and sauté then add the meat. When the meat changes colour add onion, tomato and the vegetables one at a time and mix. Add the broth or water with the salt and cook covered in medium heat until the meat is cooked. This can be done faster in the pressure cooker.
Serve it hot.

Kashi snack crackers can be served on it own, with dips or hummus. There are two varieties fire roasted vegetable and toasted asiago.
Next time you are at the grocery store make sure to check out Kashi to have as a snack or serve it at the next gathering or meal.

On a side note, a spring themed table decoration.
Pierce the narrow end of the egg with a sharp skewer or fork and remove the inside (which can be used for cooking)
Fill the eggshell with soil and place natural or artificial flowers. Place it in an egg holder or this paper egg holder.
