Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Lemon & Sesame Shrimp Soup

4 green onions, diced

1 T oil
½ C each: red, yellow, and green bell peppers
1 T fresh ginger, minced
¾ t minced fresh garlic
6 C water or vegetable broth
1 C fresh snap peas, chopped
2 T soy sauce
¼ t red pepper flakes
12 oz shrimp, peeled and chopped if more than bite sized
2 C fresh kale or spinach, chopped
Zest of one lemon
2 T lemon juice
1 t sesame oil (or more to taste)
1 t sesame seeds

Saute the onions and peppers for about 5 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and cook another minute. Add the next four ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer until heated through and ready to serve.  Don’t cook too much longer or the peas will get bland and the shrimp will get tough.
