    Since you want tried-and-true recipes, I submit this recipe that I just recently tried. I've made it three times now. It makes a lot, and I love it. My DH is a bit of a picky eater, and he likes it, too. Best wishes to you and your DH. [I have two vegetarian DDs, so I don't add any chicken. I think dark chicken meat as suggested might be more "Moroccan", but chicken breasts would be healthier of course.]

    Moroccan Red Lentil Soup
    6 servings
    2 T. olive oil
    2 large onions cut into medium dice
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tsp. ground coriander
    1 tsp. ground cumin, preferably ground from fresh whole seeds toasted in a dry skillet
    1 tsp. ground turmeric (or dry mustard)
    ½ tsp. paprika
    ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
    1 ½ tsp. kosher salt
    ½ tsp. ground black pepper
    7 cups vegetable broth
    1 can (about 20 oz.) crushed tomatoes
    2 cups dried red lentils, washed and rinsed
    Pinch red pepper flakes
    Juice of 1 lemon
    3 T. fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
    1 T. chopped fresh cilantro
    Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium high heat. Add onions and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, coriander, cumin, turmeric, paprika cinnamon, salt and pepper and cook for another minute. Add the broth and tomatoes and heat to boiling. Pour into a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Stir in lentils, cover the cooker and cook for 4 to 5 hours on high, or 8-10 hours on low, until lentils are tender. Stir in the pepper flakes, lemon juice, parsley and cilantro. Cover and cook on high for 10 minutes.

    Option: Before sautéing the onion, sauté 1 pound boneless, skinless dark chicken meat cut into ½ inch pieces, in the oil until browned. Add the onion to the pan and proceed with the recipe.

    Here is a healthy tried and true recipe. It is my own concoction from a couple different recipe sources. I'm linking to my blog. http://theterrycookbook.blogspot.com...casserole.html I've had rave reviews from several friends and neighbors. It's one I'll take to a sick friend or pot luck.

    Where do you purchase chia seeds? I haven't seen them in stores.

    Buy the $25 version of the Ninja food processor, you can put eggplant/mushrooms/ whatever veggies you like, mix it with ground turkey and make fabulous meatballs. You cut the amount of meat way down. My hubby had to give up all red meat and I've learned to use veggies in all kinds of new ways.. Good luck
