Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Warm spinach salad with artichokes and Gruyère

    • Nancith on January 29, 2020

      Loved this salad! It was our main dish along with some soup. Substituted canned artichoke hearts for the real thing; there was probably some loss of flavor from the aromatics used to cook fresh artichokes, but still tasty. I threw in some homemade croutons for crunch. Definitely a keeper!

  • Cauliflower and cheddar cheese soup

    • Nancith on March 21, 2018

      Very yummy version of this soup & quite simple to make. Didn't have white cheddar, so made do with yellow. Even though this soup doesn't use tons of cheese, it tastes very cheesy, and was so delicious & comforting on a cold spring day. I also like the contrast in texture of pureed soup & intact florets. Definitely a keeper.

  • Black beans and rice with corn salsa

    • Nancith on October 19, 2019

      I thought this was quite yummy; my hubby, who isn't a great fan of cilantro, wasn't as impressed. The corn salsa, replete with cilantro, was the piece de resistance, taking the beans & rice up a couple of notches. Tangy & tingly on the tongue, it added a lovely note of piquancy. I was lazy & used canned black beans along with a nicely sauteed onion; I was skeptical of the bit of brown sugar thrown in with the beans, but it actually added a really nice note of sweetness. Altogether satisfying! If this is your only food, don't expect to get 6 servings. This fed the 2 of us w/ a bit left over for lunch (although hubby did have sausages on the side).

  • Peppers stuffed with rice, tomatoes, and corn

    • Nancith on February 18, 2019

      This was relatively easy to cut down for 2 diners. I subbed leftover canned diced tomatoes for the book's tomato sauce, but should have paid attention to the herbs used to make that tomato sauce because they would have added some needed undertones of flavor to the dish. Still in all, a nice dish, with an elegant appearance (using enormous pepper halves rather than whole peppers), a substantial main dish for me, & lovely side for hubby. This would taste nice with a little feta or Gruyere mixed in the stuffing as well.
