My friend gave me two cans of chicken gumbo soup to try. The main reason being that I will not even try okra! So I opened one can to taste....very salty to me and nothing to write home about....so I did some searching on the internet and came up with this version.
This is an easy one-pot or slow cooker meal. Just had a variety of vegetables that were calling me to use them......this was the results. This recipe is a guideline for vegetables that compliment each other.....you can really do your own thing! Make it completely vegetarian by leaving out the meat.
Here's a senior moment that turned out great! Planned to make spaghetti and meatballs for my students. This was a quick meal for me as I already had homemade meatballs and sauce in the freezer. So I just grabbed them along with some frozen recipe#166346. Threw it all into the crockpot in am. That evening as I tasted sauce and meatball for seasonings,to my horror, I found that the meatballs were roasted brussel sprouts! After my first shock, I tasted again. It was really good! Served as I would have if it was meat, with all the spaghetti dinner fixings. We ALL gave it a "Thumbs Up!". So here it is.......I made a large amt. so judge what you need for yourself.
Made this for my celebration of the Year of the Dog, Chinese New Year! I based this recipe on the pork lo mein I use to eat when I still ate meat. This version is sooo much tastier and much more healthy too. You can replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth if you wish. You will get a different but equally as pleasing result.
Was looking for a chicken marinade and came across one by our own Tish. It seemed great but not quite what I wanted. I re-invented the recipe to this one with thanks to Tish for the idea.(Cooking time is actually marinade time)
Here's a quick and easy way to use up those after-Easter painted eggs...OR...anytime! This is really nice for lunch served over toasted whole wheat bread. Tag along a fresh fruit salad and there's a whole meal!
Decided to make a unusual salad from this site but when I saw in contained two cups of mayo(yuck), I decided to come up with a different dressing. Remember, when you check this out, that the fat content reflects a large amount.
Just started making cold soup a few yrs ago when my dil made a wonderful cold apple soup. I was hooked! Have tried several combo's and had several flops, but this one is from a Woman's Day recipe that I tweaked some...its really tasty! Cooking time is actually chilling time
