My husband fell in love with me when I told him that the rule in my kitchen is that there is no such thing as too much garlic. This recipe just clinched it! This was the first thing I learned to cook when I moved to Spain. It is the best cheap meal I know.
This really is old fashioned! It comes from "The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedia of Cooking and Homemaking" which was published in 1940. This wonderful book has been passed down through 4 generations of women in my family. Proof that some of the best stuff is the oldest and simplest.
This vegetable soup is great if you are feeling a bit under the weather. Or serve it with croutons or sour cream as part of a meal. It is very nourishing and has a mild flavor with a hint of ginger. You can increase the recipe amounts by 2-3x and freeze for later use. From Southern Living, February 1986.
This soup is a little spicy, elegant enough for a dinner party, super cheap to make and very tasty... Don't be put off by the lentils - trust me you won't know they are there (and secretly they are so good for you).
Another delectable entry for the Zaar World Tour from the enticing World Vegetarian Cookbook by Madhur Jaffrey. This is simple enough to prepare midweek and comforting as the first cold air of fall arrives.
Okay, I know it sounds nasty, but I promise that it isn't. A missionary friend brought this recipe back from a little town in Mexico where they were building houses. At first I thought "no way am I eating that", but once I tried it, I was surprised and pleased!
