    I have just found this recipe in a book I just HAD TO BUY when I saw it today, so I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds wonderful. The recipe was actually for 'Cashew and Celery Soup' but since I prefer leeks and this was the suggested alternative ingredient, I've opted for posting this as Cashew and Leek Soup. The recipe posted here is adapted from 'Green: modern vegetarian recipes' by Australian cook Flip Shelton. It says on the cover that she is "a passionate cook who cooks mostly with organic seasonal foods, and grows herbs and vegetables in her courtyard garden in Melbourne". Wow! From a quick scan of the book, I think I'll be sharing a few of these recipes before I get a chance to try them. Of this particular recipe, Flip says "I got the inspiration for this calming soup while staying at an ashram in India". When making this soup, I use Recipe #135453, another of Flip Shelton's recipes.

    Recipe #135360

    A super-simple, super-healthy and quick appetiser or light lunch dish. Avocados really are one of those super foods: they lower cholesterol, contain cancer-fighting anti-oxidants and protect the eyes against eye diseases that can lead to blindness. This simple recipe comes from the September 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Delicious'. Thank you, DeeCooks, for drawing my attention to an omission in the instructions: now corrected!

    Recipe #135239

    A visually exquisite dessert, dinner party elegant, which is in the September 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Delicious'. This is not a recipe that can be divided simply into preparation and cooking times. Suffice it to say, it's NOT a recipe to make for the evening meal when you get home from work, but rather one to be made over several hours during the day. There are three stages where cooling time is needed. I have NOT factored cooling times into my guesstimates of preparation and cooking times below. That said, each stage in the making is quite quick. Please provide information on preparation and cooking times if you make and review this. This a recipe from Australian chef Curtis Stone. As he says of this recipe "I like my desserts to be quite intense but not too heavy; there's nothing worse than feeling so full you want to slide off your chair at the end of the night! Serve this in small glasses and you'll be satisfied but not overwhelmed." I have posted it here for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

    Recipe #135181

    Another fabulous recipe in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. It's part of a suggested Father's Day luncheon. I am posting it here for safe-keeping, and for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

    Recipe #135176

    A super quick mid-week meal that can be made with pantry ingredients. Another recipe I found in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living' and have adapted for posting here.

    Recipe #135174

    A Vietnamese-influenced recipe midweek meal. Serve with a salad platter featuring mint, coriander, pineapple, mung bean sprouts, lime wedges and roasted peanuts. Another recipe from the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'.

    Recipe #135173

    A delicious Thai salad which strikes the classic balance characteristic of Thai food between sour, salty, sweet and hot flavours. It contains lime (sour), fish sauce (salty), palm sugar (sweet) and chilli (hot). I have not made this, but if I were to do so, I would adjust the amounts to ensure it has only a smidgeon of heat! Or if I were feeling really cowardly (which is more likely), I’d simply leave out the chilli. Adjust the amounts to suit your tastes! This is another recipe I have found in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. We have a lot of Asian migrants in Australia, and as a result a lot of fabulous Asian restaurants (representing the cuisines of many different countries) and many of the recipes in our cooking magazines frequently reflect these influences. I know lots of people whose favourite cuisine is Thai, so I thought that this was a recipe worth sharing. Because I am on unfamiliar ground with a recipe like this, I've made NO changes to it. I am posting it here for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

    Recipe #135168

    A fabulous and visually stunning, lemon-flavoured pea soup with a wonderful texture – part blended/part chunky. I found this scrumptious recipe in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. It was part of an article on peas and beans. The only changes I have made to the recipe was to use more garlic (the original recipe had 2 cloves of garlic) and to add one leek. I have also posted a recipe for Byessar (Moroccan Broad Bean Dip) Recipe #135158, from the same magazine.

    Recipe #135165

    Did you know that for the ancient Egyptians, beans were seen as a symbol of reincarnation and that they represented the rebirth of spring each year? I found this fabulous recipe for a Moroccan broad bean dip in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. It was part of an article on peas and beans. The 'cooking time' specified below does not include the 20 minutes cooling time in the refrigerator, necessary for allowing the flavours to blend. When I made this, I used frozen broad beans, thawed; they were baby beans so they didn't need peeling; and I used cumin because I haven't yet tracked down any ras el hanout. I also used 4 cloves of garlic - which is what I've included here in the ingredients; the original recipe had 1 clove of garlic.

    Recipe #135158

    I just LOVE trying different vegetable burger recipes. They are all just slightly different. This is one I've adapted from a recent edition of the Australian magazine 'Women's Day'. This is a recipe which offers the scope for varying the ingredients to suit individual tastes.

    Recipe #134879

    A quick and easy dish which can be served as a starter or for breakfast, brunch or lunch. My adaptation of a recipe Australian cook Iain Hewitson (Huey) adapted from a recipe by London food writer Jill Dupleix.

    Recipe #133989

    Onion/garlic lovers' heaven! A fabulous appetiser or a tasty dish, to serve for a light lunch or dinner, with simple salad greens. This recipe is typical of pre-1950s English-style Australian cuisine; I found in a 2002 'Australian Table' magazine, and have since modified. If you don't need 8 pies immediately, freeze some for a quick meal at a later date. And if you want your pies to be vegetarian, omit the bacon.

    Recipe #133884

    A rich lentil soup recipe which I've adapted from an online Jamie Oliver recipe, and posted here in response to a Forum request for a lentil soup recipe without tomatoes. The preparation and cooking times below do not include the one hour required for soaking the lentils.

    Recipe #133568

    A recipe I found in a 2002 copy of the Australian magazine "Super Food Ideas". I haven't made it yet but I'm posting it here for safekeeping and because I couldn't find anything similar already posted. From the accompanying picture, these look like cakes (something like Greek lemon cakes) rather than what normally comes to mind as cheesecakes. They sound really easy to make, I love the sound of the ingredients and they certainly sound worth trying! The estimated preparation and cooking times below do not include cooling time.

    Recipe #133560

    Beef steaks stuffed with pesto, spinach, onion and garlic slow-cooked in a crockpot, served with a sauce made from the juices and a simple potato dish. Adapted from a recipe in Betty Crocker's "Slow Cooker Cookbook".

    Recipe #133460

    Old-fashioned comfort food that looks after itself until you're ready to serve it! Enjoy Baked Apples in summer without heating up the kitchen, or at any time of the year. Adapted from a recipe in Betty Crocker's "Slow Cooker Cookbook". If you are planning to make this recipe, please read Rita's experience with this recipe, and my notes below.

    Recipe #133458

    A deliciously rich chocolate rice pudding made in the crockpot. Adapted from a recipe in Betty Crocker's "Slow Cooker Cookbook". She advises making it with cooked rather than uncooked rice, because apparently uncooked rice can come out sticky rather than creamy when cooked slowly in the crockpot.

    Recipe #133449

    Adapted from Betty Crocker's "Slow Cooker Cookbook". Add a green vegetable towards the end of the cooking time and this really is a complete meal! In the original recipe, a cup of thawed green beans is added in the last twenty minutes. Not being overly fond of beans, when I've made this recipe, I've added broccoli florets in the last hour of cooking or baby spinach leaves in the last 10 minutes. Regardless of whether the soup I've used has herbs in it, I usually sprinkle oregano or mixed Italian herbs on the chicken.

    Recipe #133388

    Risotto Cakes made in a mini-muffin pan. A great way to use leftover risotto to make lunchbox snacks. This is one of those basic recipe ideas that you can easily adapt to use up whatever odds and ends of ingredients you have on hand. And it's a recipe that can easily be doubled. I've not frozen these, but I've always found rice dishes freeze well, so I'm sure you'll find you can also freeze them.

    Recipe #133300

    The cobbler takes its name from the biscuit dough crust on top - it is rough looking or 'cobbled'. The Dictionary of Americanisms traces the first instance of the word cobbler (as it applies to a pie dish) in print to 1859: "Cobbler...a sort of pie, baked in a pot lined with dough of great thickness, upon which fruit is placed." This is a C21st version of the cobbler, adapted from Betty Crocker's 'Slow Cooker Cookbook'. A delicious cobbler which you can make in minutes and have ready just when you need it without heating up the kitchen, or having to check it in the oven when you're preparing or enjoying your main course. Using your crock pot for desserts is a fabulous way to simplify meal preparation, particularly when you have guests. This recipe can easily be varied to make other cobblers: using berries, peaches or apples, or by combining perhaps raspberries and strawberries or apples and peaches.
