Beef Cabbage Hash

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I'll definitely be making this one again! This was a hit with everyone in my family, including my cabbage-hating fiance. I'm vegetarian, so I substituted a meat analog for the ground beef, and that turned out just fine. It did seem to take a bit longer to cook than 10 minutes, but I had it on medium heat, which may explain the difference. Apart from the meat substitute, I followed the recipe as written. Delicious as is, with good potential for making variations.

Shepherd's Pie Complete

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this using veggie burger crumbles. I used about half the amount of gravy in the recipe, which seemed about right to me. Everyone in my family loved this, so it will become my standard shepherd's pie recipe from now on.

German Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I added a LOT more liquid to this recipe, in the form of a large can of tomato sauce and another can of water, because that's what I had on hand. Otherwise, it would have been more like a casserole. The soup was good-- a bit on the mild side, which is the way my kids like it. This is a good way to sneak some cabbage into people who say they hate cabbage. :-D

Easy Potato Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
I made this soup using vegetarian sausage crumbles. I melted the onions in unsalted butter instead of margarine, added 1 veggie bouillon cube along with the water, and substituted a mixed blend of vegetables that included carrots because I didn't have frozen carrots by themselves. The soup was delicious, but we did feel like we needed to add a fair amount of salt to it. I'll be making this one again, I'm sure.

Cherry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I made this substituting seitan for the chicken and plain yogurt for the buttermilk. I omitted the apples. When I first tried it in a sandwich a few hours later it seemed really bland; the next morning, however, I tried it to see how it had mellowed overnight, and it was much tastier. I had thought I wouldn't make this one again, but now I think I will give it a second go and be sure to make it well in advance of serving it.

Jamaican Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I am extremely pleased with this recipe! I reduced the water by half, but increased the coconut milk and tomatoes. I also doubled the spices, except for the red hot sauce (Sriracha, in my case). Next time I will leave the quantity of tomatoes as is, but continue with the reduced water and doubled coconut milk and spices. I used vegetarian chicken substitute and bottled lime juice, and we served it with the shredded pizza cheese we had on hand. This was fantastic. My fiance is a VERY picky eater, and he enjoyed it and said I should definitely make it again! It has a nice warm spiciness to it, without being uncomfortably hot. If I could give it six stars, I would.

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
These are easy and delicious! I used much less salt than the recipe called for. They were done about 10 minutes faster, probably because my oven cooks kind of hot. I will definitely make these again!

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I was very happy with the way this turned out, once I made a few adjustments. First of all, 4 or 5 pounds of potatoes is plenty. More than that, and it will overflow your crockpot. I used dried minced onion in place of fresh, and subbed vegetable bouillon for chicken. I added liberal dashes of garlic salt and black pepper, and finally threw in about 1 1/2 t. of herbes de Provence on top of the ingredients in the recipe. I believe it was this last herb blend that really made it into a very fine potato soup. Will certainly make this again, perhaps adding a vegetarian meat substitute of some kind as an experiment.

Whipped Cardamom Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
I made this recipe with the canned fried onion bits on top that people often use on green bean casserole, instead of shallots, because one of my kids has a huge aversion to onions but will eat those canned things. Excellent even with that substitution. Someday I will make them following the recipe more exactly, too. Truth be told, the cardamom is an excellent addition to the mashed sweet potatoes and they would make a fine side dish even without any onions at all. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Quinoa Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I'm giving this one five stars. The fact that one of my kids hated it had nothing to do with the quality of the recipe and everything to do with the fact that he rejects all things new. The other child loved it and cleaned her plate! I can see myself making variations of this recipe from time to time, with different veggies or types of quinoa. The recipe is excellent as is, but also has great potential for modification.

Black Bean and Artichoke Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I found this recipe through an ingredient search for black beans and artichoke hearts, since I had some on hand that I wanted to use up. I made everything in one pan and added 1 t. cumin to the beans, then tossed it all, including a generous measure of the diced tomatoes and the 2 c. shredded cheese, with 2 or 3 cups of brown rice, since I didn't have tortillas handy. Served with optional hot sauce alongside raw veggies with ranch dressing. Next time I might add some chili powder. It was good, but a little bland. I would definitely not make this without the tomatoes. They add a lot to the flavor.

Broccoli and Provolone Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
I increased the egg mixture and made two deep-dish quiches-- one broccoli and one cauliflower. I used frozen vegetables instead of fresh, because that's what I had on hand. The quiches needed 10-15 minutes more cooking time, possibly because I had two in the oven at the same time. I used thyme as the main seasoning in the cauliflower one, which was okay, but not fantastic. The seasonings with the broccoli (as in the recipe) were just about right.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I thought this soup was excellent, vinegar and all. We served it with pumpernickel bread and made that our entire meal. My 10-year-old son preferred it without the vinegar.

Chicken Seitan

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
As one reviewer mentioned already, this does have a much spongier texture than the seitan recipe I was used to working with, but I rather like that, especially for vegetarian chicken salad recipes. I prefer to use the chewier texture for things like stews and casseroles.

Allspice String Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
I made this with 1/2 the allspice, and it seemed like about the right amount. In my family, reactions ranged from "they're delicious" to "I give them 2 stars." We did like the texture of the beans, and may adopt this cooking method for use with variations on the spices in this recipe.

Indian Carrots, Peas and Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
This mild dish was great for my family, because I love Indian food, but my kids don't. I did add a little bit of butter mid-way through cooking to help with the tendency to stick to the pan. This was mild enough for them to eat, and I just doctored mine with Sriracha chili sauce to spice it up more to my liking. I'll probably do this again and tinker with variations of the blend of spices, because I really would like it to be a little more flavorful, but it was a very fine start, and a simple recipe to make.

Chicken Soup Tete Style

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
I tried to do a crock-pot, vegetarian version of this recipe, which turned out badly because it ended up more like gruel than soup in texture. Not the recipe's fault, though. My daughter loved the taste and ate it enthusiastically despite the texture. I might try this again on the stove, with a different vegetarian substitute for the chicken.

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
Because I am vegetarian, I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and a dash of smoke flavoring for the bacon. This was a delicious soup, and fairly quick to make, too.

Kat's Alfredo Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I made this for a church potluck, with a few adaptations so I could use items I had on hand. I used shredded pizza blend cheese and a light alfredo sauce from a jar. I added a liberal sprinkling of liquid smoke flavoring. I baked covered for the first hour and a quarter, then sprinkled more cheese over the top and browned it, uncovered, for about 10 more minutes. It came out perfect! Keeping this recipe, for sure.

Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
Having read the reviews, I reduced the amount of cumin seed in this recipe to 1 teaspoon. I needed to add more water as it cooked, but I often have that issue with my cooktop. I will probably add a little extra cinnamon next time, just as a matter of personal preference. We had this with mulligatawny soup, and it was an excellent combination.
