Healthy Recipes

This month we are featuring two of our favorite recipes that Mimi prepared every holiday - Spaghetti-Broccoli Au Gratin and Orange Date Bread. We prepare them more often than she did (after all, she had a 4" binder filled with great recipes, so she was always trying out something new), and every time our families sit down to these wonderful dishes Mimi created, we feel as if we are back at the Hull House for a holiday get-together.

Spaghetti-Broccoli Au Gratin

8 oz. pkg spaghetti (vermicelli is what Mimi preferred)
6 green onions chopped
2 pkg. frozen chopped broccoli
4 tbsps. butter (organic, unsalted)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
ground pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. summer savory
8 oz. cheddar cheese slices
3/4 c. light cream (half & half will work, too)

    Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain.

    Melt butter and add onions, broccoli, salt, pepper and summer savory.

    Cook covered over low heat until tender, about 10-15 minutes.

    Put spaghetti in oiled 2 quart casserole and cover with half of the cheese.

    Pour in cream, and add broccoli/onion mixture.

    Cover with remaining cheese.

    Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Orange Date Bread

1 stick butter (organic, unsalted)
1 pkg pitted dates
1 c. sugar of choice (raw, unprocessed is preferred)
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. hot water
1 tsp. vanilla
rind from 1 orange, grated (save the orange juice)
Optional - chopped pecans or walnuts to taste

Orange juice (from above) + 1/2 c. sugar (of choice)

    Cut dates, pour enough water over dates to cover. Soak until softened, then pour water off.

    Grate orange rind.

    Pour sugar over butter and mix.

    Add egg, rind and vanilla.

    In separate bowl, mix soda and flour, then add to other ingredients.

    Oil and flour 1 large or 2 small loaf pans. Put wax paper in bottom of pan(s).

    Pour batter into pans.

    Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour for large loaves (less time for small loaves) or until firm. Let cool slightly. Remove from pan(s).

    While loaves are baking, squeeze juice from orange into 1/2 cup sugar and stir to dissolve. Pour glaze on bread while it is still warm and enjoy.
