Tex Mex Black Bean Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Wow - this is yummy! I used no oil and added a little extra reduced fat Mexican cheese, and extra cilantro and lime juice. As a result, mine was probably a little runnier (and also, my can of black beans had more water than beans! I was thinking of adding more beans, since once I drained the liquid, there was less than 1/2 the can of actual beans, but didn't). This dip is refreshing and very flavorful! Oh, funny - now that I went back to read the recipe, I didn't follow directions at all - ha. I didn't cook anything - just blended all the raw ingredients together, and it was still good! I'll try following directions the next time to see if it's even better. :)

Satay Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
What a great idea!! I used a recipe found on this site for "The Best Thai Peanut Sauce" and added more toppings - roasted red peppers along with the already suggested cilantro and grated carrots. I used a flatbread/wrap for the crust - my local store didn't have pita bread in stock! But I'm glad, because the flatbread was delicious. I will definitely make this again! Next time I'm going to try it with barbecue chicken - I found a recipe for "Rice Vinegar Basting Sauce" that I think would be an excellent compliment to the flavor of this dish.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Very good! I cut the recipe in 1/3 to only make enough for use on the Chicken Satay Pizza recipe. It was great! I, too, lacked some ingredients - I used chili powder and cayenne instead of hot sauce, extra soy and lime because of no fish sauce. No fresh ginger, so I used extra powdered, but I think it would be much better with fresh! Mine came out a little too peanutty (I used old-fashioned peanut butter). I would start with a little less peanut butter next time to get the flavor right for peanut sauce - a little more soy and lime to peanut ratio. I used light coconut milk and perhaps regular would have added more flavor, but I didn't really notice that adding anything. I also added a little onion and honey, because mine seemed to lack something, and the sweetness helped. This was fantastic on the Chicken Satay Pizza recipe on this site - spread on flatbread and topped with chicken, cilantro, green onion, grated carrot and roasted red pepper, then topped with a little cheese to hold it all together. Yum!!

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Easy excellence! I'm trying to cut down sodium, so I used salt-free garbanzos, and didn't add salt. I added extra spices to make up for this, and it was delicious! Also, I was out of lemon juice, so I used 1/2 lime juice, 1/2 rice vinegar, and put a little lemon pepper in, and it seemed to work. I also didn't have fresh parsley so used dried, but added some fresh cilantro which was really yummy. Can't wait to try it again when I have all the right/fresh ingredients! Oh, I also added some Olive Oil (just a little) for more creaminess, but I think it would be fine without - just more fluffy and not as creamy as traditional hummus, but with great flavor and low fat! UPDATE: I made this again following the recipe exactly and it was even better - yum! I didn't use olive oil this time - so this is a very low fat hummus. I mixed it with my Bamix hand blender, which can really get things creamy, so I think that helped.

Pork Chops with Apple Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Excellent. A little soupy - perhaps a little less liquid would make the sauce more, er, saucy. It did start to thicken by the end, but I also had thinner pork loin chops that were done sooner. I used the suggestion of 1 cup apple juice and 1 cup low sodium chicken broth instead of bullion granules. But that is the same amount of liquid, so I don't think that made it so soupy. The taste was wonderful - I might cut down the curry just a bit, but my husband loved it. I might try to find a sweeter curry blend next time!

Indonesian Spiced Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
This was tasty - I modified it a bit to make it more pilaf-y. I used brown basmati ("Texmati" American Basmati) rice, which took longer to cook - 30 minutes would be the minimum cook time, and maybe a bit longer. I sort of combined this with the Risi-Bisi recipe, adding toasted pine nuts, peas, and my own addition, raisins. I didn't have turmeric so I used curry, and I cut the recipe in half but kept the spices as they were, so the ratios were doubled (since some said it was bland). It was delicious! I highly recommend adding raisins! The 4 stars are only because of the cooking time issue. This dish reminded me of some of the better pilafs I've purchased frozen from Trader Joe's or in a box - very tasty.

Roasted Root Vegetables With Apple Juice

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
These were fantastic! I used Brussels sprouts, cut in half and no rutabaga, and the Brussels were almost my favorites! Except for maybe the parsnips - I love parsnips! Who knew? I roasted this a bit longer than the recipe, until the liquid had boiled away to a nice glaze and the veggies got browned a bit. I will definitely do this again!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
This was delicious! I didn't have a bay leaf and it still came out very tasty. I cut the soy and bullion in half, too, to reduce salt, and it ~still~ was very tasty! I used toasted onion rolls, horseradish sauce, honey mustard, and mayo - wow - did I mention it was very tasty? Yum.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
Yummy!! I forgot to save the last layer of cheese till the end, but it didn't matter - I just took off the foil for the last 5 minutes. I added extra cilantro because I love it. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8x8 pan and it worked great! My first enchiladas, and the layer style made it so easy.
