Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Pretty yummy & hearty soup. I did make some amendments as suggest by previous reviewers and I think without them, it wouldn't have been nearly as good. I added a can of refried beans so I wouldn't have to deal with blending beans together + extra chili powder and less broth. It's super easy to make and cheap. :)

Based on these reviews, I was expecting something phenomenal. This was good but not great.

Broccoli with Rigatoni

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
This recipe was delicious, filling, and quick. I did take the advice of the previous posters and added a bit to the recipe and I do believe that without the extra additions it wouldn't have been as good. Since I try to eat healthy I cut the oil & butter in half (and it was more than enough). I added red pepper flakes to the broccoli and garlic, cooked for about 3 minutes and then added the broth as instructed. After the broccoli was cooked, I added the pasta along with lemon juice, basil, and shredded mozarella. Pretty yummy. :)

Orzo with Tomato and Fried Tofu

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
I made orzo for the first time last night, using this recipe, and it turned out quite well. I browned the tofu a bit (about 5 mins) before adding the onions, garlic, and two handfuls of mushrooms. I also added some red pepper flakes to give it a bit more flavor. Unfortunately, I completely forgot the veggie bouillon cube for the pasta -- I will have to try that next time as it was missing just a BIT of flavor. I think throwing in some greek olives with the feta would be delicious. By the way, tofu takes AT LEAST 15 minutes to brown on medium-high with all the veggies in there so it wouldn't be a terrible idea to throw the scallions & garlic in 10 minutes into browning the tofu as mine got pretty shriveled up.

Lentils with Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This was excellent! I did switch up the ingredients a tad by adding a teaspoon of garlic and a can of chickpeas but everything else was just as stated and it was DELICIOUS! I also did mix a little bit of broth with the water to give it just a bit more flavor. Definitely a keeper.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
The guac was good but was lacking in flavor in my opinion. I am very fond of a smoky guac I make and this was just flavorless in comparison. I think it could use almost double the salt, cumin, extra lime, and some chipotle chilis in Adobo would make it far more delicious.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Cook time is WAY off...I needed at least 20 more minutes! The taste was pretty good but I probably won't make them again.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was very delicious but TOO cheesy. I think if I had even cut the cheese in HALF it would still have had plenty of flavor.

Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
This was good but I didn't think the flavor was all that exciting. It was just missing SOMETHING. Not sure what though. A good sandwich nonetheless.

Most Excellent Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
This sandwich was pretty good but I think I put too much alfalfa sprouts and they took away from the flavor. I would definitely recommend a splash of oil and some wine vinegar as well as some black pepper.

Vegetarian Reubens

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
This was pretty good and simple but next time, no tomato. It didn't really add to it at all.

Nothing incredibly exciting but it makes for a good quick snack or light lunch with something on the side.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
This was delicious. I only used 1 tbsp of olive oil because I'm not too keen on unnecessary calories and it was just wonderful. I used a 1/2 tsp or oregano, salt, and pepper each as I assumed we weren't supposed to use 2 pinches of each as I see in the recipe. I also followed the idea of one of the previous posters and covered it for half of the cooking time. This is definitely a keeper.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Pretty good and simple. Make a good side-dish but I would use a little less chili pepper flakes next time. I love spicy but these took away from the flavor.

Stove Top Tofu Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
This was VERY bland even after tripling the chili and adding some of the amendments others have left in the comments. I would not make this again, it really doesn't resemble the taste of chili very well.

Garlic Pepper Seitan

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I thought this recipe was delicious and so easy! The only change I made was to cut the olive oil in half because 1/4 cup seemed excessive and with the reduction I still found it to be absolutely delicious. I did the last part with the cornstarch but I didn't see the point as there was no liquid prior to adding the corn starch. Any insight?
