Hey folks! I'm back with a report on the lentil soup!
My husband and I liked the lentil soup, but didn't love it. I probably liked it more than him. My only variations: I didn't include the tomatoes (I have bad acid reflux...boo) and I used normal green chard instead of swiss chard. I had to add a little water since it didn't have the juice from the tomatoes. I thought it tasted great! It's pretty hearty...I told my husband it tasted earthy though I'm not really sure what that means. The chard has a pretty strong flavor. I'd recommend it if you're looking to cook something vegetarian that's healthy and pretty filling.
OMG! This is one of my favorite soups I've ever made! My husband loved it too! I got it from the Six Sisters Stuff blog. My variations: since both of us are lactose-intolerant, I used Lactaid milk instead of regular milk and I used leftover chicken breasts from another meal. I would suggest using actual shredded chicken cooked for this purpose. The broth is delicious! I don't know what it is but with all of these flavors coming together, it makes the best chowder I've ever had!
I'm just going simple tonight! I'm making a shrimp stir-fry with items I already have in my fridge/freezer. We'll be eating out for most dinners this week so I'm not sure what else I'll be cooking, but these tacos from Mix and Match Mama sure sound good!
If you ever try any of these recipes, let me know! I'd love to know what you thought!!
