Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Green, green noodle soup

    • Cheri on February 02, 2015

      It's been awhile since I made anything from this older book. It did not disappoint. Used fresh spinach pasta and fresh everything else. It was filling and very satisfying. Quick to prep, easy weeknight supper. SO green - think St. Patrick's Day!

  • Moroccan orange-walnut salad

    • Cheri on September 19, 2013

      I have been making this winter salad for more years than I care to count! It is great, and quite refreshing.

  • Creamy, spicy eggplant soup

    • wester on August 07, 2011

      This was not very spicy, but it was nicely creamy with a good smoky/nutty accent. I could have done without the tomato and peppers in the topping - the taste did not blend well with the soup and the redness just served to accentuate the beigeness of the rest of the soup. Just parsley and yogurt was much better.

  • Mexican bean dip

    • susan g on August 08, 2010

      bland -- try lime juice

  • Orange humus

    • SheilaS on May 31, 2011

      I've been making the Orange Hummus for years and years. It's a favorite veggie dip for parties.

    • michalow on January 04, 2013

      A stretch from traditional hummus, but it tastes good.

  • Sweet zucchini-spice bread

    • AnneG on August 02, 2011

      Uses honey instead of sugar. Very light in color compared to some other recipes tried

    • rionafaith on August 27, 2017

      p. 110 -- Made this to use up some zucchini I randomly had, as it's not one of my favorite ingredients. Didn't rise much and turned out a bit dense, but the spices and sweetness are nice and my boyfriend seems to like it.

  • Pecan-oat muffins

    • zorra on May 29, 2014

      One of my favorite muffins. Solid (okay, some might say heavy) rather than fluffy, not sweet, good flavor. Vanished at a brunch.

  • Fancy stuffed pears

    • oboistaalli on December 06, 2020

      This retro dessert is a summer favorite—perfect for a light lunch.

  • Mushroom-yogurt pie with spinach crust

    • oboistaalli on October 05, 2021

      This is an easy and deliciously rich pie and is a favorite in our household. I’ve made this pie with store-bought Wholy Wholesome Whole Wheat crusts, but the homemade spinach crust makes this especially tasty.

  • Greek pizza

    • oboistaalli on December 06, 2020

      Quite delicious! I haven't worked with filo much, but it came out just fine.

  • Chilled cantaloupe-peach soup

    • michalow on January 04, 2013

      Blueberries are a garnish -- not essential.

  • Carrot-cashew curry

    • Krisage on December 21, 2012

      Nice! I had a ton of carrots, so this was a good way to use some (though I wasn't exactly sure what "4 large carrots" translated to--I used 4 cups worth.) I especially liked the roasted cashews in this dish. I happened to have some yogurt but it would have been fine without it. I substituted butter with sunflower oil to make it vegan. I'll make it again.

    • Dannausc on August 06, 2020

      I only had about 1 1/2 c of orange juice so I added about 1/4 c each of lemon juice and water. Turned out good. Hearty meal. Makes large servings.

  • Tante Malka's potato kugel deluxe

    • jessekl on April 01, 2013

      This comes out looking very ugly!! Top with something before baking to hide the top.

  • Spicy baked beans with rum & molasses

    • AnitaNgaire on September 05, 2015

      Treacle works just as well as molasses

  • Pasta with marinated artichoke hearts

    • CynthiasCooking on February 27, 2021

      I added caper berries, because I had some that needed to be used and thought the flavor woukd go well. I stemmed them and cut them in half. It was a really good flavor and texture combination.

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      Quick and tasty. Good but not as good as I had hoped.

  • Basic pie crust

    • LouiseSullivan on May 28, 2014

      An excellent and easy recipe. Good for savory as well as sweet crusts. Rolls out well. Let it rest before rolling out. LS

  • Stuffed baked apples

  • Potato, panir & pea curry

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      Fairly quick and easy. Pretty decent.

  • Huevos rancheros

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      Pretty decent

  • Zucchini and pepper enchiladas

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      Fairly easy and quite good.

  • A cucumber and pepper raita

  • Russian beet salad

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      Good. Makes a lot/7 servings

  • Eggplant salad - Indian

    • Dannausc on August 09, 2020

      Quite easy and good.

  • Swiss green beans

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      I thought it was good but my wife didn’t care for it. Makes quite a lot, 6-8 servings.

  • Yeasted coffeecake - basic dough

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      I think there’s an error with the recipe. I couldn’t get the dough to come together. It seemed like there wasn’t enough liquid.

  • Green chili & cheese corn bread

    • Dannausc on September 14, 2020

      Quick and easy. Good. A tad dry.

  • Cranberry brown bread

    • Christinalego on November 22, 2020

      11/20. Not good. Don’t do again.

  • Tofu spinach & walnut loaf with dilled horseradish sauce

    • PatFB on January 14, 2022

      I used to mince the ingredients by hand and it was excellent, but this time I used the food processor and think that the texture was probably closer to what is intended (much more like meatloaf).

  • Sesame-lemon bread

    • Meags on January 26, 2022

      This is just okay. I added preserved lemon in addition to the lemon juice and you could barely taste the lemon flavor. Not a great bread. Might be too much wheat flour - and I love wheat bread.
