Italian Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
I use an altered more veggie-friendly version of this recipe a lot, and have gotten good reviews, even from our quite non-vegetarian family. I eliminated the beef (and celery-yuck) altogether, replaced water with veggie broth for added flavor (although it was good with water too) and replaced the macaroni with red potatoes. Also, the first time I accidently made it with seasoned spaghetti sauce instead of just plain tomato sauce and the extra flavor was good so I left it in my recipe. It's a great "normal" soup to serve guests who shy away from creative cooking.

Cream of Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
Great comfort food, even if you don't have the white wine. I've been tossing some fresh baby spinach in when I heat it up, just for some added goodness.

Easy Hummus

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
it's ok, but good hummus needs tahini.

Indian Chickpeas

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
I'm new to cooking indian food, and this turned out very well. I used more garam masala instead of channa masala spice mix, and added a bit more than called for just before serving. I also stirred in 2 cubes of cream that I had frozen in an icecube tray for just such an occasion. Very tasty.

Savory TMT Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I'm relatively new to miso, so this was a great find! I loved the recipe the way it was, but for those who aren't as fond of the tofu flavor, I added 2 Tbsp of dijon mustard & a shake of rice vinegar to tang it up a little. (Can you verb tang?)

Sausage Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This soup is very tasty & not hard at all. Very thick - does fine with half the macaroni, or a little more broth.

Curried Squash Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Simple & tasty. I used fat-free sour cream & omitted the whipping cream, so I'm sure the real version is even better. I also mixed the sour cream topping into the whole batch. Probably not as classy as the garnish, but just as good.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I second the advice to use ground cashews as the thickener -- yum! Another trick for making this a little healthier & cheaper is to use chickpeas in place of some of the chicken.
