Kale and Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
Very good! Great, light, healthy salad. The feta is perfect in this dish. Also love the dressing - I've started using this in other salad recipes also. Only weird thing is the currants. Texture compliments the salad, but the flavor of currants are a little weird to me. Tried subbing with raisins but not quite right either. I think craisins would overpower it though. Didnt get a lot out of the pecans. Could make without them and wouldn't miss much.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
Very very good! Made as directed but only used half of the meatless crumbles (package said sodium was 14% of daily value in 1 serving and there were 4 servings in the package I bought - Boca brand). I didn't salt at all to start with in case it was the crumbles that were causing the over saltiness that some people described, but it was VERY bland without. I ended up adding 1Tbsp salt. As far as the 'heat' goes, the chili powder is probably NOT to blame unless the pkg denotes it is hot or spicy. Typical red chili powder is not hot at all. Canned green chiles should not be to blame either - here in Arizona, our little 4 ouncers always say 'mild' which makes me laugh because I've never even SEEN medium or hot (and I've looked). So the 'heat' wildcard is the jalapeƱo - it's really hard to tell if you've got a hot one or not. Keeping seeds in will make a difference and size varies greatly. Ive seen them 1" to 3" long and depending on the crop/weather conditions makes a big difference in heat. I'm wondering if the folks who got blazed by the heat just got REALLY hot jalapeƱos or maybe used red pepper instead of red chili? Adding sour cream will cool it off some if needed, but mine came out perfect! Excellent recipe - never used bay leaf before and it seemed like a lot of oregano as i was putting it in but turned out great! Only obstacle was 'crushing' the whole tomatoes myself. I'll buy crushed next time!
