Cindy's Snappy Sensational Superfood Soup
Tried this yesterday and it was a big hit (well, with ME and Jackie, anyway!) And if our friends don't like it...well, tough! All the more for us.) Thanks, Cindy! I stuck with the recipe except I didn't have the fresh Basil. No biggy...just doubled up on the dried. BONUS, I DID have fresh ginger, so doubled up on that too, using my cheese grater. Yummmmmmyyyyyy! Also, you can make this recipe in HALF the time by nuking the turnip, carrots and potatoes till tender first, then chucking them into a big soup pot with the lentils, herbs and spices. Bring everything to a boil then simmer for two or three hours. Leave chunky...or put it through the processor for a creamy bowl of heaven!

Flatlander Chili
Hey, George, great recipe! Thanks. I only messed with it out of necessity and it still turned out great. (Didn't add the tomato juice cause I didn't have any...and threw in a can of black beans just because they were there!) Used a yellow pepper since I didn't have green; also chopped in a carrot, which turned out to be a mistake! Next time (which will be soon, based on wifey's applause) I'll try throwing in a dozen mushrooms and see what happens. Thanks again, George. Fun recipe.
