Basic Microwave Risotto
Oh my goodness. This is a comfort food dish. I have only had risotto one other time, and I made it from a recipe that required the stirring over the stove method. This was so much better - admittedly, I have never had "real" risotto. I followed the advice of others and sauteed my veggies, and added at the end. I served this with a "raw" kale salad, and it was great. I also found it to be very "forgiving" in that frequent checking did not destroy the outcome.

Eggplant Rollatini
I was looking for low carb meatless main dishes for variety and stumbled across this recipe. I did make some changes that made each serving 11.5 carbs each. First I put salt on the eggplant pieces and let them sit on paper towels for about 20 minutes to reduce any chance of bitterness. Instead of using the bread crumbs, I used 1/2 c ground pine nuts mixed with 1 c ground pork skins seasoned with basil and oregano. I also used more oil than 2 T, probably more like 1/4 - 1/2 cup for the frying of the eggplant. But this recipe was simply amazing even with these changes. My husband loved it. We ate it with spaghetti squash.

Lentil Soup
I am eating this soup as I type this review. I have made a lot of lentil soup recipes, but this is the best basic recipe I've found. I tweaked it similar as others did, by tripling the herbs; I also cut the liquid by 2 cups using 2 cans chicken broth and 1 cup water, and I used 1 c red lentils and 1 c green lentils. When dished in the bowl, I added 1/4 tsp salt and a good squirt of sriracha to add my beloved heat. After these, it was excellent. I believe I would have found the recipe "as is" very bland. Hope this helps.
