Syrian Red Lentil Soup

Syrian Red Lentil Soup

I DID make this. However, I made a few changes and want to try it again more closely following the recipe. My adjustments for this attempt: 1/2 cup red lentils & 1 cup yellow lentils - because I ran out of red lentils. 1/2 tsp salt - because I don't like too much salt and my husband adds salt to everything before tasting, anyway. Simmered, partially covered. Pureed before serving. I found it mild, but not bland, and might increase the spice depending on accompanying dishes. — bkprice13 12/28/2008

Banana-berry Soy Smoothie

Banana-berry Soy Smoothie

This is my typical "first breakfast" when I need to have something for energy, but don't feel like eating. Great way to use fruit that is cheap in season - buy in bulk, prep and freeze in portion sizes. [I posted this recipe.] — KaryAnca 12/26/2008
