If you are part of a CSA sometimes you get things you might not usually use, like radishes. Here's a soup that uses the tops of the radishes.

Vegetarian Chili

Janel got this recipe from a friend (Becky Lehman) and when we make chili, this is the recipe we usually fall back on. You can adlib with a few things (we've added corn and mushrooms, for example) and if you need a little protein, you can add ground meat easily.

The past couple of years I have made this quite often.  I usually include all of these ingredients, amounts may vary. I like to savour the smell so I often let it simmer for hours.  Freeze the extra for a future busy time, or bring some to a neighbour or friend.  This has to be nutritious!

Great Northern Beans

I was at a friend's house the other day and she had a pot simmering that smelled so good!  When I asked her for the recipe, she laughed, because it was a recipe she had copied from my book.  I made it the next day, and thought I'd pass it on.

We had this at a friend's house and asked for the recipe. Danica says "Sorry for this extremely imprecise recipe. Let me know if you make it so I can perfect the recipe."

Canning Salsa

It's not as good as the fresh salsa, but it does last longer which can be helpful if you have a lot of tomatoes to use and want to save some jars for the future. I believe this one originated with the "More With Less" cookbook.
