Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Great simple, easy, yet tasty soup. Makes a lot so froze some in individual portions for future quick meals. Will make again, but next time add more vegetables, maybe even some vegetable crumbles (fake ground meat) to keep it a vegetarian meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe DeeDee!

Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
I goofed, so review not total reflection: failed to read directions before putting together so had uncooked corn (have another recipe that way) - but still came out good. Used slightly less than tsp of red pepper flakes and slightly less than full red onion. This onion must've been strong because it was a bit too oniony. Avocados were a bit too soft so turned a bit mushy. Overall good flavor and will make again. Next time will downplay the onion (unless exceptionally mild one), cook the corn (would be good BBQ'd!) and make sure firm avocados.

Quinoa and Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was tasty but a bit bland for our taste. I will make it again but add more things that will add more flavor - but no doubt add more fat and/or sodium. Next time will add more veggies and possibly feta cheese or sliced green or black olives (big sodium hit, no doubt). The cucumber doesn't add much flavor so likely won't increase that but possibly more green onion and maybe try different herbs. This was my first taste of quinoa so wasn't sure what to expect other than knowing how good it is for you. It has a very light texture once cooked and nutty flavor. I was sold when I learned it can be cooked in a rice cooker (1 part quinoa to 2 parts water), which is how I cooked it for this recipe. Thanks zoeDisco for introducing me to quinoa!

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Very yummy! -although I tweaked the recipe a bit based on other reviewer comments. Others said the bread was too much compared to meat mixture. I didn't want to add more meat so added veggies. Added about 1/3 C canned (Trader Joes) corn, 2.3 oz can sliced olives, 14.5 oz can of Trader Joes diced & fire roasted tomatoes with organic green chiles. As others I also sauteed onions with the ground beef and also threw in 2 frozen Dorot crushed garlic cubes (equiv 2 cloves). Used 12 oz bottle of Trader Joe's enchilada sauce. Also put shredded cheese on top of corn bread topping instead of mixed with it. Digital crock-pot ran for 8 hrs on low, then on warm for another 2 (no delay start). Family doesn't do too spicy & this came out perfect for us. Served w/dollop of sour cream to tame it when needed. Will next try making it vegetarian w/Morningstar Mealstarters & will report back. :)

Lemon Orzo Primavera

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
If you have veggie haters in your family, you definitely need to shred the zucchini & carrot. Haven't tried it chopped, but prefer shredded anyway (I do like veggies though). Next time I'll try adding more veggies and maybe a 'light' tasting bean for a bit more protein for a complete vegetarian meal.

Black Bean Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Big hit with the family. Some adjustments: Cooked on stove- started by sauteing some chopped onion then chopped red pepper (about 1/4 cup each) and clove of garlic before adding the water and all other items (left out sugar). Also used a chunky salsa and didn't strain it- left chunks in. Noticed I had some leftover corn so tossed a bit of that in too. Let simmer for probably 30 mins as prepared some cornbread to go with the meal. Used a submersible stick blender to puree bulk of soup. Flexitarian daughter went back for seconds before even having any cornbread! I didn't care for the cherry tomatoes so next time will instead use diced tomato in lieu of them. I'm not very creative in the kitchen to concoct my own recipe, so this was a solid foundation to work with. Thanks Corwynn!

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Family really likes and it's pretty quick and easy. With 3 in our family, I can broil in toaster oven which heats up house less than full oven in the summer. Did find that its helpful to let the marinated tomatoes drain a bit before putting onto the sandwich, otherwise it makes it a bit too moist & messy. Very tasty!
