Vegetable Curry
Forgot I didn't have potatoes left so substituted turnip last minute. They had the same texture and taste, just a bit of radishy aftertaste. Recommended substitution.

Hoisin Pork Stir Fry
We liked this a lot. I tried to make it just like the recipe but got halfway through and realized I didn't have everything, so made a few substitutions. I didn't have water chestnuts so I added regular onion and a stalk of celery. I added salt and pepper to the pork since the recipe doesn't have salt. I didn't have cloves of garlic, so I added powdered garlic. (I just sprinkled it all over the pork. I didn't notice garlic flavor - I don't recommend this). Finally, I didn't even have cayenne so I added a tsp of ground chili paste. I didn't taste the spice, it wasn't enough. Despite my trying to make this fail, it was still great! The "sauce" is more a sticky coating of hoisin on everything. Hoisin is sweet, so if you don't like sweet, don't make this! If you love Hoisin, this is PERFECT!

Extra Easy Hummus
After losing our Tahini-free hummus supplier when we moved away from Trader Joe's we requested and requested that our local grocery store carry a Tahini free variety (due to a sesame sensitivity). I feel silly for that now that I know how easy this is. 5 minutes, just as it said. I severely felt the lack of lemon, but one wedge of lemon added, and this was perfect. With our new wand blender, this was incredibly easy to whip up (and no blender cup to have to wash). Add the lemon though, it needs it!
