This hearty stew that originated in areas of South and East Africa. Potatoes, both sweet and white, as well as cauliflower, calcium-rich greens, raisins, and spices make a savory and nourishing meal to warm us on cold winter nights. Serve topped
with rice, couscous, or quinoa.
You've had the big meal, you've had the traditional hot, turkey sandwiches and Mom's delicious turkey casserole, now you're down to the bones. Try this colorful soup variation to finish off the bird in style. You make the stock ahead so you can degrease it then make the soup the next day or freeze it to use at your convenience. Time to make does not include making the stock.
An older recipe from Sunset magazine. When I'm the only one home for supper, this is probably my favorite thing to make. It's a quick, soothing recipe, and I get to have leftovers for lunch the next day! Note: Zaar does not recognize "potstickers", but that's what I mean by stuffed wontons.
I love this soup! I used to buy the prepackaged seasoning for Egg Drop Soup at the grocery store until I found this recipe that is better and cheaper! Tastes just like what you would order at a restaurant and takes just minutes to prepare. I use chicken bouillon for the base most of the time and leave out the extra salt. Dried chives are good if you don't have fresh and any extras like thinnly sliced mushrooms or green onions are a great addition, but not necessary.
My new favorite book, "Olive Trees and Honey" by Gil Marks, is the source of this delicious soup. If Kefir is not available to you, substitute plain yogurt. This soup is best served freshly warm just as it is done, and is traditionally served after the main course. The long total time for preparation includes 4 hours of soaking the split peas before making the soup, which I included as "cooking" time.
Ah, the comforting feeling of a big pot of chicken and dumplings on the stove! Enjoy an Asian twist with a lighter sweet and sour style broth and dim sum dumplings. Easy to make and flavorful! I have updated this recipe to reflect changes graciously suggested by expert RSC#9 contest reviewers.
This soup is really yummy and healthy too! This makes a main dish accompanied by tortillas, or crusty french bread and a nice salad!Caribbean, Cuban, Mexican and Spanish influences! It really is best if the beans are soaked overnight.And depending on your cooker, the soup might need to be cooked longer.
This is comfort food at its finest. It’s a warm, simple and easy dish that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is also a great way to use up day old bread. The key to this soup is to have everything prepped before you start cooking because it comes together really fast.
I'm not sure where I found this recipe, but it's a very rich soup. I like to add additional herbs - whatever strikes me at the moment, but I usually add some Italian seasoning and sometimes some spicy Mrs. Dash.
I had some butternut squash to use as I had cut one for another recipe. I found this recipe in the 'delicious' magazine in the November 2004 edition. I realised that I also had lots of fresh coriander (cilantro) and sour cream sitting in the fridge, so this recipe was just made for the situation I was in! In this recipe, the squash is roasted first to enhance its flavour. I love the combination of the smooth butternut squash purée and the freshness of the coriander. But what really rounds the soup off is the cold and creamy sour cream and the roasted, crunchy pumpkin seeds. This soup makes a great starter, but also a nice meal when served with bread and or salad. The original recipe calls for kabocha squash or pumpkin.
