This lighter version of a family-favorite soup boasts all the hearty texture, warm comfort and delicious flavor of the original, but less than half the fat and a fifth of the calories! That's a difference to savor! —Rebecca Cook, Helotes, Texas
As they say, "Necessity of the mother of invention." I created this recipe because I had a package of stew meat I needed to use. I spotted the ginger beer in the fridge and rest is history. This stew has a delicious sweet-tangy flavor. It's nice to have a different way to serve an inexpensive meal.—Leslie Simms, Sherman Oaks, California
Curry makes this speedy soup from Denise Elder of Hanover, Ontario so delicious. "I just open a few cans, and I have a quick hearty meal in minutes. The wonderful aroma brings my family to the table before I even have a chance to call them," she reports.
My husband and I have done extensive traveling during our more than 50 years of marriage. As a matter of fact, I came across this recipe during a visit to Japan. The Asian flavor is a nice change. - Martha Ann Bernard, New Vienna, Ohio
I created this chicken recipe to replicate the flavors of my favorite curry dish—slightly sweet with just the right amount of spicy heat. When served with a garnish of green onions and toasted coconut, the soup makes the perfect cold-weather meal.—Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri
We've tried several recipes for this soup and couldn't find one that resembled the one we liked at a restaurant. So, I made my own and I must say it is on par with what you'll find when dining out. Regular or hot chili sauce can be used, according to taste.—Vera Leitow, Mancelona, Michigan
I love preparing dinner in a slow cooker because it's "carefree cooking." This chicken dish uses ingredients that I love, such as coconut milk, edamame and fresh ginger. The Asian-style entree is perfect for a potluck party.—Roxanne Chan, Albany, New York
