This recipe helped me with my diet and also helped me to stretch my dollar through the lean college years. It's an adaptation from another recipe for vegetarians and those pursuing a healthier lifestyle.
This is a meatless (not vegetarian) Borscht, and even my husband, who MUST have meat with every meal, loves this! Sometimes we make it in summer and serve it cold. It's very tasty! It came from a cookbook many years ago, but I can't remember which one. And I've changed it over the years and I do my own thing, there is no need to measure any of the veggies, it always turns out wonderful. So eyeball it! (Your food processor will come in mighty handy for shredding all these veggies!) Enjoy!
This is a recipe that I found a few years ago in the Rosie Daley cookbook when she was Oprah's personal chef. It's simple to do and very tasty. Sometimes I only puree half of the mixture so that there is a little more substance to the soup.
This comes together so easy, cause there's almost no measuring, since you just empty out the cans and then I just dump the seasoning as I go along. It's really hearty and makes a flavorful and chunky chili. It makes a huge batch, but we like to freeze half so that we can pull it out on a cold day and just heat it up and serve it over some rice. The seasoning can be adjusted for personal taste.
I finally got around to putting this recipe on Recipezaar! This is our family's favourite recipe. It is very kid friendly (no heat) so feel free to add something to spice it up if you like it spicy. I am posting this mainly so that I can access this recipe on "my shopping list" which is a feature I use here on Recipezaar all the time!
The Stuff that dreams are made of...Don't let the DP turn you off, this soup is ADDICTING. Plus there's something about telling little kids it contains Dr.Pepper that makes them eat their dinner! Plus it's so easy!
