Vegan Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
Loved this soup! And so did my family (including the 1 and 3 year olds) But we had to make a few adjustments. I pre-roasted the squash (since I was also making baby food that day). The lentils needed a much longer cooking time, and had to keep adding water along the way. Since cilantro is such a delicate herb, I added that after the cooking process (as I do when I make Tikka Masala). I also had some fresh mint around, so I added that... yum! It still needed a little something after all was completed according to the recipe - acid. So I juiced one lime and added that in, too (I had doubled the recipe for leftovers... which were even better than the fresh, of course!). Perfect. I will be making this again. There are lots of ways to augment the recipe. I love that it's vegan. Thanks!

Mint Jelly

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
Yummy! This is just about the same recipe as they have at the National Center for Home Food Preservation. I cut the sugar down a little so it wasn't too sweet. Yes, do make sure you have ALL your "ducks in a row" before you start heating anything - plan ahead. BONUS: Since 2 Tbsp. of lemon juice was just about one lemon, there was a little leftover. There was leftover mint juice, too - so I added the mint juice and lemon juice to a pot of iced green tea I had made. Delish! Mint-mania at our house. Between the jelly & the tea, I knew something good would come out of our surprise mint patch (our mower broke and the lawn was HIDEOUSLY overgrown!) When life breaks your mower, make mint jelly!

Salade de Carottes Rapes

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Tasted like France... I liked it even better after I added some fresh lemon juice. PS - 10 carrots make a lot of salad!
