A Few of My Recipe Indexes

In the next few weeks, I hope to start posting some recipe indexes.  I’m especially interested in researching vegetable dishes.  I enjoy most vegetables, but like most people, I don’t eat enough of them.  So I’d like to build a library of vegetable recipes.  Also, at our house we participate in a local organic vegetable program, so I am always researching recipes for the most productive vegetables. 

In the mean time, I’m sharing with you some of my recipe indexes, published elsewhere.  Each recipe index features many recipes in each category, with ingredients summarized, and links to each recipe. 

VitaMix Recipes: VitaMix Soup- Overview to 57 VitaMix Soup Recipes

Ingredient summaries to 57 VitaMix Soup Recipes.  Recipe ingredient summaries for 17 vegetable soups, 20 cream soups, 10 cold soups and 10 soups with meat.  Summaries grouped by category, and grouped to reflect which of these VitaMix soup recipes require cooked ingredients versus those that can be made entirely in the blender.
