Shrimp Bisque

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Delicious bisque as written. Second time, I upped raw shrimp to 1 lb., and added 20 or so chopped basil leaves, and 5 bay leaves (removed after cooking). Increased hot chile sauce to 1 teaspoon to give it more kick. This recipe is a keeper!

Sweet and Spicy Curry with Chickpeas

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Spicy, hot & delish. Mostly followed the ingredients but changed up some measurements. Used 1 lb. 99% fat-free ground turkey breasts; 10 oz. diced tomatoes w/ habanero peppers (only use habanero option if you want to spike the heat); lite coconut milk. Eliminated the sesame oil and sautéed turkey, onion & garlic in Better Than Bouillon, Chicken Base. These changes eliminated some fat making it an even healthier version, and it’s still great tasting. The recipe as written seems to have more turkey than necessary so you may want to decrease the amount or, if using the 2 lbs., at least up the garbanzo beans as others have suggested. Thank you Marcia for a fantastic recipe! UPDATE: This has become a repeat winner for us. I now add 1 cup of jumbo mixed raisins when stirring in the garbanzo beans. If you prefer firmer raisins, add during last 5 minutes of cooking time.

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Super good! While we’re not hummus connoisseurs, this one is far better than those we’ve had before. Much better than store bought versions sold at WF. A minor point of confusion was with “6 oil-packed sun dried tomatoes”; not sure how to interpret a quantity of 6 as store bought not packaged this way. Deviated by going w/ California Sun-Dry Fat Free Smoked Sun Dried Tomatoes (used 3/4 of 3 oz. pack), and this worked out well. Thanks SAVVYHOSTESS for sharing & we’ll be making this again.

Hummus Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Distinctively different, and will make again. This review based on optional ingredients being included. While we enjoyed eating it as instructed, we liked it even better when briefly heated-up before serving. The amount of pita bread seemed a bit overpowering (a bit to dry) but was fine when served warm. The hummus spread will make or break this recipe. I don’t think this recipe will come out w/ a higher rating that what you assign to your hummus spread if tasted alone as torn pita bread and pine nuts won’t pull-up the rating. I choose “Smokey Chipotle Hummus” from this site, and it was great when coupled w/ this recipe. Had a store bought hummus been used, this probably would have been rated a 2 or 3. Thanks IMANKAY for a versatile recipe that can be changed-up by using different hummus spreads.
