Thai Style Shrimp
Ok, so I read a lot of reviews before making. For the paste I added a tablespoon of toasted sesame oil to help the garlic, jalapeno & ginger stick all together. I added kale, mushrooms and about 1/4 of a yellow pepper in with the onion. I added 1 whole can of lite cocnut milk, not just a cup like the recipe calls for. The level of heat was good because I kept the seeds in the jalapeno. But there is something major missing, and I can't exactly place it, definitely a depth of flavor is lacking. I served it over jasmine rice, which is my favorite. I added curry powder, and that helped somewhat, but this is just too bland tasting for all the interesting ingreduents that went into it. I am really disappointed because I was soooo looking forward to this!!

Vegan Black Bean Soup
WOW!! Awesome! I only had 3 cans of Black beans, so I pureed a can of chili beans in place of 1 can of black beans. It was so good. I recommend using frozen corn because I think they taste better than canned corn. I used Trader Joe's Cuban style roasted good! This recipe leaves a lot of room for improvisation but I don't think it needed it. I will be making this all the time now.

Pear and Pomegranate Salad
I made this the day BEFORE Thanksgiving. It tasted really great served warm. I added feta cheese and pine nuts on top. I also served the dressing cold and it tasted really bland and not very special at all. So...served warm is the way to go! I used POM Pomegranite juice and got some pomegranite seeds from Trader Joes so I didn't have to seed it myself...well worth it!
