I first learned to like this soup at a Chinese restaurant called Nong Chin's in Marion Illinois. I had to try my hand at copying it, as I love it--this is the result. AND these people DO NOT give out their recipes.
Hearty and delicious. Adapted from Rachael Ray, the recipe takes a few shortcuts (like purchased rotisserie chicken and canned beans) to ensure it's easy and quick. :) I picked up a loaf of Italian bread and made Recipe #113699 to go with it, which made for a simple, but comforting and tasty meal on a chilly night.
This does not taste like light cooking. It's so easy, full of flavor, and can be easily modified for spiciness or anything else! This is the only chili I make now... I've modified it a bit, and it's tasty!
One night I started throwing stuff in the soup kettle, and this is what came out. Pretty darned good, actually! I use frozen and canned veggies and dried herbs for ease of preparation, but fresh ingredients could only make it even better.
This originally came from a Weight Watchers cookbook and I adapted it slightly for a chili cookoff at work. It ended up as a finalist and was voted "Most Memorable". I really enjoyed the flavor and it is very quick to put together, which is even better! 4 WW points for 1 cup serving.
Another great, easy ramen recipe. I've used this a lot, especially when school is in session! Cheap, quick and I always have the ingredients around (unless I haven't been to the store for like a month :-) )
I adopted this recipe when Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. After recently having a chance to try it, I have to say that this is a very flavorful and hearty soup. I like that it is full of veggies and that the pork is a lean source of protein. We will be making this again and serving it with crusty bread and good wine.
