Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Excellent, hot and filling soup for a cold day. Very flavorful. Made it several times with raving reviews from my family. I substituted maple syrup in place of the sugar, and red pepper flakes in place of the jalepeno pepper. In addition, a couple cloves will give this a nice smoky flavor. You can also use a scotch bonnet (half-a whole one is too much) in place of the jalepeno.

Vegan Lasagna I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I have made this lasagna many times. It is an awesome recipe. There are a few things that I do to combat the blandness. First, I drain and marinade the tofu in dill, thyme, red pepper flakes and salt. I also marinade the drained spinach the same way. In addition, when cooking the tomato sauce, I brown the onions (including some green onions!) and deglaze the pan with the tomato sauce. I add salt, thyme, pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano and dill to the sauce and let it simmer. Towards the end of the simmer, I may add a little sugar or maple syrup to combat the bitter taste that some sauces can have.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Excellent recipe! I did modify it a bit. I added some green onions (finely chopped) to the salmon. I also added some red pepper flakes because I like my food with a bit of kick. I also added a bit of hot sauce to flavor it. I added a bit of haitian piklese (a haitian condiment made of vinegar and cabbage, etc) to the mixture. I have made this a few times, and I find that the patties are a bit bland without some of the added ingredients.

Squash Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Excellent recipe! I modified it by using wheat flour instead of whole wheat flour. I also substituted maple syrup for the sugar. I also added some maple syrup to the final egg wash. I think this recipe would be great with raisins in the dough; I am going to try that next time.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
VERY good recipe. I got kudos from all of my family members because of this recipe. Modifications: 1. I didn't have red curry paste, so I just added some red pepper flakes to taste. 2. I didn't have vegetable broth handy, so I pureed some of the sweet potatoes with a bit of water and some buillon. I excluded the salt from the recipe because there is plenty of salt in buillon. 3. I didn't use sesame oil... don't like it. 4. I grated up some ginger so that it would match the consistency of the soup. (not sliced like the recipe says.)
