Rainbow Veggie Chili
We've tried this a couple of times and absolutely loved it. Last night I made it again and changed a few things and we loved it even more. If I could've given it more than 5 I would! No zucchini, (don't like it) and I used fire roasted diced tomatoes instead of the crushed. I also added carrots, celery, parsley, an extra tbsp of chili powder, veggie bouillon cubes, 1 tsp coriander, 1 tsp cumin, 2 cups water and, believe it or not, 12 oz light beer. It was absolutely great. The only thing I will say about this is, that even with the beer and the extra water, it is incredibly thick, which is we really like, but I always cook it in a crockpot instead of on the stove. I would think it could tend to stick if cooked on the stove and not watched very carefully.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)
Tried this recipe last night and it was great. I used one tbsp oil, two small eggplants in place of one large one, two tomatoes, and used 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger and 1/2 tbsp fresh garlic as did not have the ginger paste. Instead of salt, I added a veggie bouillon cube, and a little water when it tried to get too dry. I also reduced the heat to medium as so many reviewers said it stuck when they tried to cook it on high. The only other thing I would change on this one is to try using 1/2 jalapeno next time. It was just a little hot for us but we will definitely be making this over and over again!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup
This had a wonderful flavor. I made this pretty much as written, but did try a couple of the suggestions other reviewers had made. I did add 1 tbsp baking soda to the beans when cooking them for 30 minutes. Be aware that this caused the beans to cook down really fast and I pretty much ended up with a pot of bean puree. I couldn't drain the cooking water off as the recipe calls for because they were so thick! The overall flavor was wonderful, spices were a perfect, and the soup ended up very thick and hearty. I cooked my ham bone separately, skimmed off the fat and used that broth instead of the chicken broth. I also eventually added a couple of cans of beans to go with my "puree", and next time I may try it again without adding the baking soda to see how that turns out. I was able to freeze the extras up and look forward to having this frequently in future!
