Italian Sausage Soup
Versatile, tasty soup. Made many times, often with subs, like chicken stock, not beef, one link of a flavorful sausage (as from Sprouts) and a half pound fresh grnd beef, different beans that I have on hand, always with lots of spinach. To round out the deep, sultry flavor, I add a 1/4th to 1/2 stick of butter...zowies. Some recipes include Parmesan cheese as a garnish...yummy, but not needed, if you are (ahem...) watching extra calories.

Seasoned Swai Fish Fillet
I buy as much Swai (Pangasius) as I can get at Trader Joe's...we got sick of tilapia, which sold in bags of small fillets for a high price at box grocery store. Swai comes in frozen fillets of about 8" long and a good .5" thick. It cooks up quickly, has a gentle flavor that goes with EVERYTHING you season/dress it with, and best of all, has a wonderful 'chew'. Very satisfying. This (recipe) is a wonderful way to cook this fish (hadn't tried it w/ cilantro!)...5+! Also try it baked with a panko-parmesean-garlic powder-lemon pepper treatment...killer. A very versatile fish!

Tofu Parmigiana
I'm new to tofu and this, as written, was a hit. I took the tips to get the tofu (extra firm) as dry as possible. I sliced the loaf into three pieces (bigger than 1/4") and placed them on two paper towels on the counter. I topped them with two more paper towels, then a large dinner plate, and plop...the coffee maker went on top of it all. I came back about three hours later and they were perfect, and the towels were drenched. I also dipped the tofu slices into a beaten egg, then into the crumb mixture. I pan fried them on a very hot skillet (olive oil) and got them quite dark & crispy. The sauce was so simple. Be sure to use fresh garlic clove, but the dried oregano is fine (I was generous with it). Allow it to simmer for a good while to thicken it, too. We had it with veggie pasta tossed in pesto, and a baby spinach, strawberry and toasted almond salad. Superb dinner!
