Veggie Tuesday

I need to say Happy Birthday to our daughter in-law. This is Samantha she is an ARMY wife she takes very good care of our grandson while her husband Michael, fights for our freedom in Iraq. They are station in Bamberg Germany where Samantha is from. I am sure her parents and grandparents are taking very good care of our grandson until we meet. This picture was taken last year on our family cruise. When they came with the dessert order, "she said I skip" and this is what they brought her. Happy Birthday Samantha. Give our little buddie hugs and kisses.

A few week ago I made these veggie soup wafers they are loaded with flavor. They are very easy to make and take no time at all. Before the soup was gone the wafers were devoured. They had a lasting flavor. The recipe made about 18 wafers.

Chipotle Soup Wafers

1 tablespoons finely minced chipotle chiles
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup chopped green onions
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
21/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter cut into 1/2 cubes
11/2 cup packed coarsely grated yell cheese
1 large egg
3/4 c buttermilk
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon whipping cream for glaze

Preheat over to 425 F. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium heat add green onion and saute 2 minutes to soften slightly. Remove from heat. Blend flour, cornmeal ,sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in processor. Add1/2 cup chilled butter looks coarse meal. Add cheese. Transfer flour mixture to large bowl. Whisk 1 egg in glass measuring cup. Add enough buttermilk to egg to measure 1 cup, stir in green-onion mixture and chipotle. Make well in center of dry ingredient . Pour buttermilk mixture into well, mix just until evenly moistened.
Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead gently just until dough holds together, about 10 turns. Pat out on generously floured surface to 3/4 inch thickness and cut out additional wafers. Brush wafers with egg glaze. Bake wafers until golden, tester inserted into center comes out clean, and wafers feel firm, about 18 minutes. Cool on rack 5 minutes.
