Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This is a good recipe, but it turned out a bit dry, even when I used canned tomatoes and not tomato puree. I think I would add a few more tomatoes (maybe a can and a half of stewed tomatoes). It also seems like it would be an easy recipe to sneak a few more vegetables into, e.g., some spinach and a bit of cauliflower might be a good addition. Overall, though, when combined with basmati rice, it makes an excellent work lunch, and it freezes well, so you can cook a lot at once and then enjoy it over time.

Ribollita (Reboiled Italian Cabbage Soup)

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
This is absolutely delicious and great for using a variety of greens from the garden. It looked like it made a ton, so I cut it down considerably, and I used canned cannellini beans. It's good even without the bread and cheese, but if you want a "comfort food," I suggest toasting a bit of rustic bread and sprinkling parmesan on the top and broiling it in the oven for a few minutes (like French onion soup, but bury the bread down in the soup so that it soaks up the deliciousness). It's delicious, warming, and comforting at the end of a twelve-hour shift. An excellent winter stew!
