Eggplant Delight

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
This is surprisingly good! Easy and really tasty. I took someone else's advice and added garlic powder when browning the onions. I'll make this again for sure!

Bulgur Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2006
The bulgur is very nice in this recipe, although after 1.5 hrs, it still hadn't soaked up all the water (I used pearl barley, which I believe is the most common). I ended up boiling it after that long, and it quickly finished up. I did add tomatoes and some lime juice, as I felt it needed some punch. I also cut back on the oil, as others recommended.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
Good soup! It is very creamy and rich. I made some variations -- used veggie broth in place of water, tossed in some broccoli, and used whole wheat flour. I also blended everything before adding in the cheese, to make for a creamy consistency. I found it needed quite a lot of salt at the end, which usually I am hestitant to do. However, in this case, it did make the soup very delicious.

Fried Rice with Ginger, Hoisin, and Sesame

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
It's good. Nothing all that memorable, but it's an okay recipe. I added cashews for that taste and for the extra protien. Note: this makes A LOT of sauce. I cut the sauce measurements in half, based on other reviews, and still only used half of what I made!

Sweet Pepper Pasta Toss with Kale

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
This is really good! The garlic & the cayenne really compliment the kale. I love the IDEA of kale -- it's soooo healthy -- but don't love the taste, so this recipe addressed that. Make sure you use one "packed" cup of kale, as it really shrinks in the cooking, so more is better here.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
I give this a raving 5 stars -- but keep in mind I made some changes as follows. Because of what I had on hand I used ground ginger and balsamic vinegar. I used egg noodles. I didn't "fry" the onions, but rather, used two green onions entirely, and put them in fresh & chopped. I added lots of corriander and orange peppers and cucumber. Like this, this was deeeelicious, both warm and cold. (As a note, this makes A LOT of sauce, but that's fine by me, as there is some left over for tomorrow! Might use it as a tofu marinade.)

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
SOOOOOO GOOD!!! Wow -- this is excellent. I just used a regular romaine lettuce, and as I could not find gorgonzola cheese, used a mild blue cheese instead. I think there is a little too much dressing in the recipe, and I would cut down about 1/3 next time; there was a pool of dressing in the bottom of the bowl. But SUCH a great salad, a hit of a birthday party. Delicious & easy.

Marinated Barbequed Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Totally solid, useful recipe. Nothing that's going to stop you in your tracks, but a reliable, practical recipe. Thanks -- this was just what I was looking for.

Artichoke Bites III

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
I had a VERY difficult time "folding" the artichoke into the cheese mixture. I ended up using my fingers, which got really, really goopy. Two big fans of artichoke gave them a 4 star rating, and the rest of us rated them a 1 or 2.

Chutney Baked Brie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Excellent! Interesting and new! I've served brie in many fashions, and this is definitely one of my faves. I used salted cashews, for what it's worth. Will definitely serve again.

Barley Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
I like this recipe. -- it is intersting and different. I skipped the mushrooms altogether. I think it would be good with carrots addded for more colour and flavour. Good as a side dish for sure -- probably not a main dish.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
This is good as a side salad, and also wrapped in a tortilla with cheese and baked until crispy outside. It's a solid recipe, although I would suggest cutting the vinegar down by half.

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
What's good about this recipe is how easy & healthy it is. What I did not like is how tomato-y it tasted. It was a bit mushy, too, and needed more spices. This is okay, but not outstanding.

Spinach Salad with Pepper Jelly Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
What a great salad! The dressing is amazing, and I've also used it on just a regular old romaine salad. Lots of compliments from guests. Sweet and surprising! I would suggest adding more olive oil than called for, as it's rather thick otherwise. Thanks for he recipe -- I'll use a lot, I'm sure.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
I would actually give this a 4.75, only because I found the lasagna to be very watery. Next time I would cut down on the broth. Great tasting, though, and leftovers just as good or better. I used homemade veg broth, which I do for everything. Very easy to make -- just keep all the ends of veggies that you have in a bag in the freezer (carrot ends, broccoli stalks, onion bits, etc). When you have enough to fill a pot, cover them with water and boil until the veggies have basically nothing left! Drain and keep the "broth." You can compost or throw out the soggy veggies, and then freeze the broth for when you need it. Great way to recycle old bits of veggies, and couldn't be healthier or more natural!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2006
This is very good. I used brown rice, which required more water to be added, and turned out stickier than I think the jasmine would have. Next time I'll stick to the recipe. As others did, I roasted the asparagus for about 5 mins in the toaster oven, and did the same with the cashews. I also cut the butter down to 2 tbsp. I used homemade veg broth, which I do for everything. Very easy to make -- just keep all the ends of veggies that you have in a bag in the freezer (carrot ends, broccoli stalks, onion bits, etc). When you have enough to fill a pot, cover them with water and boil until the veggies have basically nothing left! Drain and keep the "broth."

Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
B-O-R-I-N-G. I added a sauteed onion, parmesan cheese and nearly a cup of tomato sauce, and still I can't give this more than a 3. It's boring! It's easy, but not fabulous, not memorable, not interesting. I won't make again unless I do a lot to it, in which case, we're talking a whole new recipe.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This is a good recipe; I like it better than the traditional bulgar tabbouleh. It is lighter and tastier, I think. With this recipe, I would suggest decreasing the amount of lemon juice, adding salt & pepper, and adding small cubes of firm tofu. I enjoyed this very much -- thanks.

Satay Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
Excellent both in taste and in ease of preparation. Versitile recipe -- my husband had his on chicken, I had mine on tofu. Good with snow peas and other crunchy vegetables. I also have added ground ginger (1 tbsp or so) and a tsp or so of garlic chili paste. I think this latter could be increased, if you like spice. Really great recipe -- I won't be looking for another one.

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
I would actually give this 3.5 stars. It's good. A very average (not less) and tasty recipe that I'm sure I'll make again. I agree that spices should be kicked up, and I also added a yellow curry powder, which gives it a rich taste that I really like. Healthy and easy. Good.
