Shrimp Gazpacho

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Let me start by saying that I have traditionally hated most things tomato based and have never been able to stomach a glass of V8 juice. But, desperate for a summer soup, I gave this a try. It was amazing. I made some modifications including: I added some yellow peppers, some juice from a jalepeno can (per suggestion of other reviewer), season salt, lemon AND lime. ALSO, and this was the biggest thing: Clamato or whatever the bottled tomato/clam juice is in most stores has as ingredients: Water, high fructose corn syrup, tomato, blah blah blah chemicals, clam juice, in that order. I vetoed that. Instead, I used tomato juice and got an 8 ounce bottle of clam juice and combined them. I added a bit of agave to try to imitate the sweetness I imagine the canned stuff had. But, to be honest, I don't know if I'd add the agave (or that much) in the future. Maybe only a few tablespoons rather than nearly a quarter cup! Anyway, it is excellent. YUM YUM YUM

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This was wonderful. I added A LOT more basil and oregano, omitted the pasta in favor of potatos to increase the broth to substance ratio, and doubled te broth while halving the tomato sauce to cut acidity. It was really really great and I hate tomato based soups AND minestrone as a general category.
