Lentil Tomato Soup is delicious and filling and very easy to make. Green vegetables make this soup a powerhouse of nutrition. Be sure not to overcook the lentils, as they can get rather mushy.
After you stir in the tomatoes, let the soup simmer for 20 minutes if you have time in order to allow the flavors to blend a little more. And feel free to double the recipe and keep some in the fridge for a day or two, as the soup will get even better over this time.
This is from a recipe I found in one of Craig Claibourne's cookbooks. It's my favorite sweet and sour sauce, which I sometimes use as is, sometimes add ingredients too. If you prefer a thicker sauce, add more cornstarch. If you prefer a darker red sauce, add more red food coloring. You can also add ketchup but it will change the flavor. It's a nice, light sauce.
My Mom made these often when I was growing up and I have always loved them! I think this is the most authentic and traditional way to make these.Traditional Sausage and Peppers do NOT have tomato sauce! We always ate them on Italian sub rolls with mustard but you could eat these alone with good crusty bread on the side. This serves 8 and can easily be scaled down or increased depending on how many you want to feed.
A wonderful change from regular tuna salad sandwich. This is the only way we do it in our house!
Note: I didn't notice until March 2010 (took me 8 years) that the ingredient horseradish had somehow defaulted to horseradish sauce. There are many great reviews here from people who used horseradish sauce, so don't be afraid to try it. I have corrected the recipe as it really does call for prepared horseradish, which is much hotter.
I searched and finally found this recipe on the internet. It is a copycat of the Bourbon Chicken sold in Chinese carry-outs in my hometown. This recipe is so good that my sons gobble it up leaving me just a spoonful. Their excuse was they thought I had eaten.
I used to love these when I was younger, I could eat two in one sitting! I haven't had fast food in a year or two, but these taste like I remember Taco Bell's quesadillas tasting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
