This savory apple soup for two gets body from Yukon Gold potatoes and a touch of heat from paprika. Float some cocktail shrimp or a mound of lump crabmeat in each bowl to make it a main course. Click here to visit the new home of KitchenDaily!
A generous portion of this hearty beef-barley soup is satisfying as a one-dish meal. If chuck roast is on sale, purchase a large one and freeze the rest for later. If not, ask your butcher to cut off only the amount you need.
Inspired by an Ayurvedic dal recipe in the Esalen Cookbook, this is a light-bodied, curry-spiced coconut broth thickened with cooked red lentils and structured with yellow split peas. The back notes of ginger, slivered green onions sauteed in butter, and curry-plumped raisins make this a new favorite of mine.
I originally found this taco casserole recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. Since then, I have made this recipe at least 50 times. I love it because the ingredients list isn't complicated and, based on the layers, I can readily remember all ingredients when I am at the store without my recipe card. I have served this for myself and had wonderful leftovers or many times I have made it for company with a nice green salad to accompany it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
