Recipe here originally: Kale Soup with Lime-Cilantro Chickpeas
I made this tonight and loved it so much. It was so easy to make and only needed a few ingredients. It's really versatile too! If you can't find tomatillos, just buy a jar of salsa verde (usually $1.99 at the grocery store and you only need like half a jar) and just add it to the soup with the diced green chili peppers.
For something different, I piled the chickpeas on top of the soup instead of cooking them in the broth, I think it just added some nice brightness to the dish but you can absolutely cook the chickpeas in the soup if you prefer!
Kale: Spinach or arugula
Tahini: It's optional as a way to thicken the soup, but you can use a peeled and diced potato
1-2 jalapeño peppers
1 pound tomatillos, husk removed and tomatillos rinsed under warm water
1 head of garlic, top cut off
1 yellow onion, peeled and sliced into wedges
1 7-ounce can of hot green chili peppers. optional
1 pound kale, chopped
5 cups water or vegetable stock
2 tablespoons tahini, optional
Salt and pepper to taste
Cooking oil, for roasting and sauteing
2 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 limes, juiced and zested (or use 1 large lemon, juiced and zested)
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fresh cilantro, optional
Salt and pepper to taste

Phoenix, Endeavour, Bundaberg; All are so sweet that it’s off putting. They would all be nicer, and more refreshing, not to mention healthier.
There was a period when I was growing up, when my mom decided she really liked key lime pie, so she would frequently buy them from Costco. Since I was the one with the sweet tooth and healthy appetite, I was the one expected to finish whatever she didn't eat. By the end of that period, I decided I didn't really like key lime pie. There's something about it, some kind of sourness that seems like it's more than just the citrus flavor; there's almost like a kind of yogurt quality to it (I mean like plain unflavored yogurt).
Conversely, I'm still a huge fan of lemon meringue pie. And I mean like the basic Mrs. Smith style, not the fancy stuff that maybe tastes a little more like cheesecake. The lemon part of a lemon meringue pie is almost just lemon pudding or something, it doesn't have that kinda yogurt or whatever element to it.
Okay so, here's the actual baking question. A few days ago, I made this recipe for lemon bars. I think it tastes pretty good overall, but it does have a little bit of that excessive yogurty sourness that I don't really care for. Can anyone offer any theories about what would make it taste like the element of key lime pie that I don't like, instead of just a smooth, sweet lemon flavor?
I should note that I had a bit of a problem with the eggs not quite combining properly. When I first opened the oven to check it, there were a bunch of white splotches like the eggs had just kinda cooked on their own. I broke them up and stirred them back in together with the rest of the filling. I figured the end result was gonna be a lumpy mess, but the texture ended up being pretty smooth. So I don't know if the eggs have anything to do with how it ended up tasting, I just wanted to give all the potentially relevant details.
Also, this is the first recipe for lemon bars I've tried making myself. I feel like when I've had lemon bars that other people made in the past, the vibe was more lemon meringue than key lime, but maybe I'm just misremembering? Or maybe I should try a different recipe? I don't know, this is hard because I don't know if that element which I find unpleasant in key lime pies (which isn't in lemon meringue) is something anyone else experiences or cares about, and I certainly don't know what to call it. I just feel like the lemon bars I made are really close to having a taste like what I want them to be, but they're just not quite there (and I'm the only one eating the des... keep reading on reddit ➡
I hate sour apple anything. Like depending on what it is, sour apple makes me cough. So when Skittles pulled that I was pissed. And I don't even eat Skittles that much.
I like rice, you like rice. We all like rice, however rice has a name and these names aren't the same. There is White Rice, Brown Rice, and Cauliflower Rice. There is no cilantro lime rice, I know the long form name of white and brown rice has cilantro lime in it but that's for both of them. When you go to order rice ask for white, brown, or cauli. That's because cilantro and lime are in all the rices so when you ask us for cilantro lime we don't know which one you mean. This happens atleast every 10 customers and can be frustrating having to explain every few minutes.
