Spicy Asian Medley

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
The recipe sounded interesting, but alas, it turned out very ordinary. Too much hoisin sauce for one thing.

Coconut Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2004
I added a couple of teaspoons of chicken base and, eventually, some garlic salt. It was pretty bland otherwise. I also used dried, unsweetened coconut which I soaked in the soy milk to soften before I pureed. I'll try the coconut milk next time and increase the garlic. I did, however, like the taste combinations. Will serve with plain yogurt, of course.

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
Thanks for this really good recipe. I did add a few more vegetables that needed a home including some zucchini; I added chicken base to the water; and I sauteed the vegetables first is about a tablespoon of olive oil. Habit I guess, but I think that's better than adding half and half. I think the secret ingredient was the curry which I added more of for good measure. YUM!

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2003
This is a delicious soup with the modifications I included, some of which were suggested by other reviewers. I soaked 1 cup of cannelini beans in water the night before and simmered the beans for about an hour until soft. I added the thyme to the vegetables as I was sauteing them in olive oil. If it's a good olive oil, the taste is hard to beat. I added 3 tsp. or chicken base along with the vegetables and a TB. of tomato paste. I used a hand blender to blend the soup and then added a handful of macaroni. I did not add any salt as there's a lot of salt in the chicken base. A very satisfying soup. Thanks for the contribution.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
I like this recipe a lot and I used many of the reviewer recommendations. I added 1 large onion, browned separately; 2 chicken breast halves chopped and browned with 4 cloves of minced garlic, 2 teaspoons taco seasoning, and one teaspoon each of cumin and coriander seed, crushed. Next time I make it I'm going to use creamed corn to thicken it somewhat and I'm going to mince a jalapeno and add it to the onion. Thanks to the author of this recipe.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2002
I liked this soup alot--it was very easy to make and it was delicious. I was short on onions so I added a package of onion soup mix. I also added a large carrot sliced, a tsp of basil and a couple of shakes of red pepper flakes. After about two hours the beans were done and I had the pot on a low simmer. I don't like to cook my soups too long because things start to fall apart, but this is a personal preference. I think letting the soup age for a day or so improves the flavor more than cooking it for another couple of hours. It also seems a bit salty to me which might have something to do with the soup mix, otherwise a big hit. Thanks.

Alaskan Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2002
Very good! I used fresh salmon which I steamed while I chopped the vegetables. Then I melted a couple of tablespoons of butter with a touch of oil in a dutch oven and added the garlic (2)and spices and stirred for a couple of minutes and then sauteed the chopped up vegetables. I removed the skin and bones from the salmon and then cooked all the bones and skin in the steaming water for a few more minutes. I drained this and dissolved a chicken bouillon in the water and then added it to the vegetables. I thought the seasoned salt was essential and I added a half teaspoon of salt and a pinch of cayenne. Very simple recipe. Really delicious.

Easy Corn and Crab Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2002
I thought this chowder was terrific. I agree with the previous reviewer who said there was too much flour, but I added more butter--4 tablespoons. I think it wants to be that thick, although you'll probably end up adding more milk. I also added 1/2 cup of chopped celery to the onions and bacon and a pinch of cayenne because I thought it needed a kick.
