African Chicken in Peanut Sauce

African Chicken in Peanut Sauce by John Spottiswood

I first had this in graduate school when a classmate from Ghana cooked it for an International progressive dinner. I fell in love with the combination of sweet peanuts and pungent spices. This is not a flavor you will easily forget, and it will keep you coming back for more!

Harira Soup

Harira Soup by John Spottiswood

This is the traditional soup served at sunset to break the daily fast observed during the 30 days of Ramadan. Recipes vary from family to family throughout Morocco and the rest of North Africa. I'm particularly fond of this version. If you have not had this before, you MUST try it. It is truly delicious!

Minestrone Romagna Style

Minestrone Romagna Style by John Spottiswood

This is the way minestrone is made in Romagna. It's not a lot of prep time, but you simmer the soup for a long time until all of the vegetable flavors mellow into one mild but delicious soup. The subtle flavors of this soup are even more delicious the next day, so it is a good dish to prepare in advance of guests arriving for a…

Curried Lentil Stew with rice

Curried Lentil Stew with rice by Nancy Miyasaki

This curried lentil stew is an awesome winter dish. It will warm you and sooth you with its soft texture and rich flavor. Vegetarians can leave out the bacon and ham. Those who relish Indian flavors can double the tumeric, cumin, ginger, and cloves.

Moroccan Fish Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a flavorful, spicy soup that happens to be Moroccan but will remind you of fish soups found from Spain to Russia. It is a classic! Serves 4 as a main dish, 6 as an appetizer.

Chinese Vegetable Soup

Chinese Vegetable Soup by John Spottiswood

I love to throw this recipe together when I am in the mood for a healthy and spicy meal. Just about every time I go to an Asian grocery store I end up picking up the ingredients for this tasty soup. This is not from any book...just pieced together from the great bowls of soup I've had in hole-in-the-wall chinese restaurants in the…

Awesome Split Pea Soup by John Spottiswood

We made this soup by combining the best of two recipes...one from America's Test Kitchen and one from Cook's Illustrated's the Best New Recipe. I think this is a split pea soup that can't be beat!

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Italian-American in origin, this soup was really misnamed. “Wedding soup” is a mistranslation of the Italian language for 'minestra maritata', a reference to the fact that greens and meat go well together. (Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Simple Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

Simple Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup by Robyn Savoie

Simply put...yummm. This is the best cream of broccoli soup I have ever tasted. Friends and Family love it when I make this. They request this all the time on those cold winter days. I made a few changes to a recipe I found based on things I read. Curry powder is the key, it adds a "pop" to the broccoli and cauliflower because…

Chicken, Lime & Tortilla Soup by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe is light and delicious. I often make it with left over baked chicken. It can also be made with boiled chicken as described below. This is not a heavy handed tortilla soup. It is simple and yummy. Try adding hominy or avocado as well!

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (with Pressure Cooker Option)

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (with Pressure Cooker Option) by Salad Foodie

Inspired by a recipe from New Paradigm Cooking (Sandbach, Terranova and Ware), I chose to forego the cookbook’s recommended 30 minutes simmering time in a stockpot, for a pressure cooker rendition which cut the cooking time to well under 10 minutes…

Alton Brown Lentil Soup

Alton Brown Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one by Alton Brown. I added spinach, potatoes, and scallions and removed grains of paradise. Our whole family really enjoyed this recipe. I made it alongside an Indian curried lentil soup recipe, and while both were good, this was the hands down winner. If you're looking for a tasty, hearty, and healthy…
