Recipes from Alison’s List
Favorites from Around the Web
Alison’s White Turkey Chili — Over time, I grew to prefer this with a mix of ground turkey and diced turkey breast for more texture.
Dad’s Fish Stew – Easy, quick, and far more fabulous than the short ingredient list suggests. Don’t skimp on the olive oil; the liberal dose gives the stew a velvety mouth feel.
Egg Drop Soup – Perfect for a cold night
Greek Lamb Stew with Green Beans – This sounds bland, yet it’s anything but. Perfect as-is, though I always use fresh herbs (triple the dried measurements).
Lemon Lentil Soup with Collards: Lemon, cumin, cinnamon, and garlic flavor this unforgettable Lebanese soup. I suggest using only 1 bunch of collard greens.
Lentil Soup — This deceptively simple soup from Alton Brown is spectacular! I use red lentils and season with pepper instead of the grains of paradise.
Moroccan Crockpot Stew – This recipe is written for beef, but I think it’s even better with lamb. I always cook it on low for the longer amount of time (the meat is tough when cooked on high). I increase some of the spices to suit our taste, add salt, and put the sweet potatoes on top of all the other ingredients to keep them from getting overcooked. DF & GF (if served over quinoa, rice, or millet)
Shrimp, Pea & Rice Stew — It’s warming and filling, but still feels light and fresh thanks to lots of cilantro and delicate Asian fusion flavors. A real delight!
