Ripped Off Recipes 3



There are two types of clam chowder, the one most are familiar is Boston or New England which is the white and there are many recipes for it, the other is rarely seen any more and is called Manhattan Clam Chowder and is red.


When I was a child many restaurants served both but I guess the red fell out of favor.


I personally prefer Manhattan Clam Chowder and after searching on the net for recipes and trying many of them, this is by far the best one I have ever had.


Manhattan Clam Chowder


5 bacon slices, diced

2-1/2 cups diced onions

1-1/2 cup diced carrots

1 cup diced celery

2 Tablespoons chopped parsley

5 cups water

2 cups diced potatoes

3 dozen clams, shucked with liquid reserved


1 large can (~3 pounds) chopped clams, drained liquid reserved

1-28 ounce can tomatoes (stewed)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon thyme

1 bay leaf

1/4 teaspoon pepper


in a 5 quart dutch oven, over medium heat, fry bacon until almost crisp;

push to side of pan.


Add onions and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.


Add carrots, celery, parsley and cook 5 minutes.


Add water, potatoes, clam liquid, bay leaf, salt, thyme, and pepper.


Heat to boiling. Reduce head to low and simmer 20 minutes, stirring often


Add clams and simmer 5 more minutes.


Makes 8 servings or 14 cups.

Refried Bean Soup


An excellent hearty, meatless soup. You won't believe that a soup this easy can taste this good. The Rotel tomatoes (tomatoes with green chilies) provide the perfect seasonings, so don't substitute plain tomatoes for them


Adapted from Southern Living.


1 small onion -- chopped

2 cloves garlic -- minced

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 can refried beans -- 31 oz

1 can diced tomatoes -- undrained -- 16 oz

1 can Rotel Tomatoes -- undrained -- 10 oz

1 can chicken broth -- 14 1/2 oz


crushed tortilla chips

shredded cheese (cheddar or monterey jack)

sour cream


Cook onion and garlic in oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Add beans, both tomatoes and chicken broth, stirring until smooth. Be sure to mash the lumps of refried beans until completely dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.


Ladle soup into individual soup bowls; top with crushed tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream. Serve immediately.


Yield: 4 hearty servings. add meat if you have it.




use spam, canned hap or hamhock, bacon


Basic bulk soup mix


5 cups (2 pound) dry lentils

2-1/2 cups (1 pound) dry green split peas

2-1/2 cups (1 pound) dry yellow split peas

5 cups (1-2/3 pounds) alphabet pasta (or any tiny, shaped pasta)

2-1/2 cups long-grain rice

2 cups dried minced onion

Combine all ingredients well. Store mix in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. To make soup, use 1 cup mix to 12 cups broth, water, or tomato juice. Add vegetable/s of your choice as well as barley, if desired. Any finely chopped or diced meat can be added as well. Season to taste.

You can add any dried vegetable to this mix too. I add dried carrots to mine when I mix it up for storage.



Pea Soup


8 c water

1 1/2 c chopped onion

3/4 c yellow split peas

1 1/2 c diced carrots

1 1/2 c chopped celery

1/4 c chopped fresh dill

3 T pearl barley

3/4 oz vegetable or chicken bouillon cubes (optional)

1/4 tsp pepper


In 4qt saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the onion and split peas, and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 1 hour.


Add the carrots, celery, dill, barley, bouillon and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, 1 hour longer or until the peas have dissolved.


* The recipe states 8-10 servings. Not sure who they were serving but I double this recipe.





this looks easy to convert to all dehydrated and canned or powdered milk.
