To make slicing the pork chop easier, freeze it for 15 minutes. We prefer the distinctive flavor of Chinese black vinegar; look for it in Asian supermarkets. If you can't find it, a combination of red wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar approximates its flavor. This soup is very spicy. For a less spicy soup, omit the chili oil altogether or add only 1 teaspoon. Recipe stolen from the PBS cooking program America's Test Kitchen. This is an excellent soup.
This is my family's very favorite soup! It taste just like take-out! It's quick and easy. I have been making it for years. Have a cold? Forget that plain old chicken soup! ***IMPORTANT TIP*** I suggest making this soup a day or two ahead to let the vegetables and tofu marinate! Then just heat and serve. Enjoy!
This was adapted from a recipe on vegweb (http://vegweb.com/recipes/beans/3088.shtml), to incorporate more Ethiopian spices and use up a sweet potato I had on hand. It doesn't quite achieve the heights of my favorite Ethiopian restaurant, but it's quick, hearty and pretty tasty. Braver souls can substitute cayenne for some of the paprika
Pulled from Fine Cooking Magazine (Feb/Mar. 2008)--my current FAVORITE cooking magazine. I made it last night for the family, and WHOA, is it good! Granted I am blessed with two little boys and a husband who love nearly all food, but they all liked this one A LOT! It isn't overly brothy--consider adding a couple more cups of broth if you like it more "wet."
It's garlicky, fairly simple, and very nutritious! The magazine says it's best served with crusty cheese toasts. I did just that, and served it with (Safeway brand) frozen five-cheese toast. YUM!
I just found this in a slow cooker cookbook and it is slow cooking in my crockpot as I type lol! The house smells wonderful so I'm hoping this soup tastes just as good as it smells. It is a very easy recipe to throw together, great for a fall day!
This was a life saver for me when I started Weight Watchers. It's really good and with 2 slices WW wheat bread(only adds 1 point) It was quite filling. I got the recipe from the first week book of Weight Watchers.
This soup has been around for years! I taught Weight Watchers for 20 years and have been wildly endorsing this soup that long too! For WW Point followers, be aware that if you add starchy vegetables, you no longer have a 0 Point recipe. This recipe has a lot of "wiggle" room. I use home made chicken or turkey broth (very low sodium that way). Sometimes I'll use fresh spinach. In a pinch, I'll use canned green beans. I also like to play with the seasonings. I'll use fresh herbs from the garden when in season or I might try using hot sauce or pepper flakes to give it some heat. Also, try adding leftover chicken or shrimp but be sure to figure the points if you're following WW Points. This is a truly delicious, versatile and healthy dish!
