Pub-Style Vegetarian Chili
This was delicious! I made this recipe with what I had on hand, and I am sure it would have been just as good has I followed the recipe exactly. I used 1\2 the oil it called for; a yellow bell pepper instead of green; didn't add the red wine; two 14 oz. cans of diced tomatoes instead of the 28 oz. whole; added 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes instead of the hot sauce; added an extra 1/4 tsp. sea salt. I used two cans of black beans and it was very close to 3 cups. Everything else was the same. It was a thinner chili, so I simmered it for 45 minutes to reduce the liquid. We dipped corn tortilla chips in it and it was fabulous!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes
I couldn't taste the mustard so I would probably increase that next time. I used olive oil instead of butter and salted generously. Very good and I will make again!

Lentil Soup
I used butter instead of olive oil, chicken broth instead of water, and kale instead of spinach. I also used fresh herbs instead of dried (triple the amount of herbs called for when using fresh instead of dried). It was delicious! If broth is not used, I would add at least a teaspoon of salt with the water. Otherwise it will be incredibly bland. I still needed additional salt to taste at the end using chicken broth. With my changes, I will make again!
