Harira

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Amazingly wonderful flavor and very hearty! We loved it, thanks for the recipe!! My wife, daughter and I ate this for three nights in a row on the amounts shown here. We only wish we had made a good flatbread to go with it...maybe next time. Following on suggestions from reviewers and based on our own preferences, we made some modifications: 1) cut the onions in half and ground them down in a food processor, 2) ground tomatoes in food processor before adding, 3) doubled lentils, 4) used only one egg, 5) substituted vegetable broth for water, 6) used orzo instead of vermicelli (no verm available at our store), 7) upped ginger to 1 tbsp, 8) doubled cinnamon and tumeric.

Spicy Black Bean Empanadas

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Fantastic recipe, we will make this often! My suggestion, double the recipe and freeze the extra for awesome easy meals later! Only modifications were using of ground beef instead of pork and increasing the cumin, chili powder and crushed pepper by about 50%. We also made our own dough; had more filling than dough so should have increased dough recipe by about 50% as well (recipe had 2.25 cups flour, so we should have increased to around 3.25).

West Indian Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
This was simple, but very bland. I added jerk seasoning as others suggested but that only made it hot, not more flavorful. Other Jamaican curry recipes indicate that, rather than a base of stock, use a combination of coconut milk (1-2 cans) and tomato sauce (1 can) plus water to bring volume up to that needed. Also, if Jamaican curry is not available add allspice to curry at a ratio of 1:6.
