THANK YOU so much for sharing this recipe!!
I recently went vegan ans am currently building up a collection of vegan recipes, without having to resort to munching on grass every day – lol!
i have to tell you, the effects of going vegan on my skin and particularly my hair, has been amazing.
you can check out my vegan journey on my blog.
thank you again!
Sounds yummy. Here are two more for ya:
"Cream" of Broccoli Soup
1 Head of Cauliflower (cut into pieces)
1 Broccoli Crown (chopped)
5-6 Garlic Cloves
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Bay leaf (optional)
Onion Powder (optional)
Garlic Poweder (optional)
Using water (or vegetable stock), boil the cauliflower in a large pot with 5-6 cloves of garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook until really tender. Then throw everything into a blender, adding more water (or stock) until you have the creamy soup consistency that you desire.
Pour the soup back into the pot and stir in your broccoli. Here is where I added a bay leaf, as well as some onion and garlic powder, but you can do whatever works for your taste buds. Cook on low, until broccoli is tender. Then enjoy!
Recipe II: Cauliflower soup
This was my attempt at recreating a soup I'd had at a local restaurant, that has since closed. It starts just like the "cream" of broccoli soup. However, once the cauliflower is done, only blend half of it in the blender with water (or vegetable stock), adding enough liquid to bring it to the consistency that you desire.
Mash the cauliflower left in the pot with a potato masher. Then, pour the pureed cauliflower back into the pot and stir all together.
Serve garnished with sliced scallions, slivered almonds, and diced dates. I know it sounds weird, but this stuff tastes great. Happy dining!
Yes!! More vegan recipes please!!! This looks delicious. Who cares what pee smells like? I don't plan on peeing in my pants anyway. 🙂
My only concern with this is the smell of my urine. My husband doesn't notice it himself but I get self conscious.
I will give it a try, though.
Thank you very much for the Vegan recipe. Please post more vegan friendly meals!!!!
