RecipeSwaps from… September!

Yes, I have been delayed, but what follows are my two September vegetarian recipeswaps from RecipeZaar, er, Food.com:

First up:

http://www.food.com/recipe/afghan-tomato-cucumber-and-onion-salad-salata-435969 (Afghan Tomato Cucumber and Onion Salad)

Nice simple one, as befits a busy month

The only note to make on this one is that I used a variety of farmer’s market fresh tomatoes.  All sorts of visual effects.  The pile of veggies are as follows:  On the upper left, the tomatoes.  Upper center:  red onion.  Upper right:  cuke, peeled and diced.  Lower center:  cilantro.

Don’t forget to add the lemon juice.  I didn’t add any salt.

Rating:  5 out of 5.

Second recipe, from the same chef:

http://www.food.com/recipe/cypriot-sour-lentil-soup-fakes-xithati-vegan-424916 (Cypriot Sour Lentil Soup)

Get everything diced up and into the pot as described in the recipe above (I made a half-recipe and ended eating this over about three meals).

Start simmering.  Shortly, it will look like this:

The finished soup looks like the below, and has a great texture:

Rating:  4.75 out of 5.  It really needs more spices, but I can handle that next time out.  I’ll gear towards the middle Eastern.

Btw, I did not participate in the October swap.  Not with the plans for being out of town so long!
