Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I'm rewriting this review because I made the minestrone again and it is SOGOOD! Last time I made it, the liquid disappeared within an hour or two of taking the pot off of the stove. I mean it was totally gone--like a casserole or something. So here's what I changed this time: I used 3 potatoes, 3 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, one quite-small onion, 4 cloves garlic, 16 oz of veggie broth, 1-1/4 cups macaroni, and dried herbs instead of fresh (same quantities). All the other ingredients were the same. I heated the olive oil and cooked the onion and garlic for maybe 5 minutes, then added the rest of the chopped veggies and let them cook together for a few minutes. I think it tastes better that way. I had to cook longer than 30 minutes, and the macaroni took longer than 10 minutes as well. There isn't a lot of liquid but it's much better than last time. If it disappears again I'll add more veggie broth. Using smaller quantities of vegetables makes a much more manageable-sized soup and I don't think we'll have to throw any away this time. It also tastes better when there's more liquid. With these modifications, I really love this recipe! Thanks Corrigan!

Curried Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
This soup is SO GOOD! I added an extra tablespoon of curry (tasty, but too hot for anyone else in the house) and 2 cloves of garlic, and I forgot to put the extra 2 cups of water in at the end. I've been adding a little water to each serving before I reheat it. I'm having a cupful right now and instead of water I added vanilla Silk-brand soymilk to thin and creamy-ize it. SO GOOD! I did have some problems though during the cooking process; I didn't cut the carrots small enough so I had to cook them for like an hour, instead of 20 minutes. Next time I plan to grate them, so it won't take so long and the consistency will be a little better. GREAT soup! It's good without the modifications but it's perfect with them.
