I made my first awful vegetarian dish -- Cauliflower and Red-Pepper Chowder -- a Cooking Light recipe. It was awful. I don't really care much for cauliflower, but I thought since it was a blended soup, the cauliflower would give it the creaminess. Yes, creamy, but tasteless. The red peppers (that are SOOO expensive I rarely buy them!) didn't do anything for the flavor. It had celery, onion, and oregano for seasoning. So, I tried to "fix" it. I added worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, salt, lemon juice, and hot sauce. I was able to choke down a bowlful, but my husband couldn't eat it. Oh well, win some, lose some. I just hope I don't lose too many more!
I did make a really good rice pudding. I had some leftover rice, which I heated with some soy milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and a little brown sugar. I soaked some raisins in Southern Comfort and put them in the microwave for 30 seconds. After the rice was bubbly, I added the raisins and SoCo. It was really good.
