Although this recipe has a small amount of meat in it (the pancetta), I am going to include it in my list of recipes because it can be made vegetarian and it’s simple, delicious, and filling. The recipe is from Giada De Laurentiis’ Everyday Pasta cookbook. I served it for a little informal dinner party and actually whipped up two separate, with pancetta and without. 2 years ago
Tonight, I made this recipe tonight, and it was delicious but unbelievably high calorie and fat. As I already joked on Facebook, my husband and I both feel like a pair of those cartoon balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. 2 years ago
My husband and I made this soup yesterday and hosted four friends for dinner. I must say that this is a delicious, flavorful soup that is actually pretty simple and a real crowd pleasing meal. I served it along side some of the suggested items: lemon wedges and dates, and I also made this great Onion Apple and Cheddar Tartlet.
Based on the criteria, I am adding the Harira to my 20 recipes list. Admittedly, I now have two lentil soups but they are extremely different in their flavor profiles, so I think it’s an acceptable situation. 2 years ago
Last week, my husband made one of our old standard recipes, and I was reminded that it meets all the criteria. It’s a recipe I found online years ago and made vegetarian a few year later. The recipe is quite simple: chop up 2-3 cloves of garlic, 1 onion, and 3 peppers (green, red and/or yellow). Saute all of these items together in a pan, add a can of diced tomatoes, 1 tbsp cumin, 1/2 tbsp red pepper, and any other spices that sound good to you. At the same time, cook a can of black beans in a separate pot.
Once the tomatoes have cooked through, warm up a few tortillas (corn or flour) and then add a portion of the pepper, tomato mix and the black beans. Sprinkle on shredded cheese!
It’s a great, simple recipe and makes good leftovers too. 2 years ago
