Creamy (no dairy) vegetable soup!

Wow… thank you for all the comments on yesterday’s post!!  I love Tasha’s idea about the deep purple!!  I will post a picture when I figure it all out!!

FYI – for those of you that liked the color it was Milk Pail by Martha Stewart!!

Onto FOOD!!

A few weeks ago I bought this stuff!! DSC_0250

I thought it would be great for lunches…

I took it yesterday in my lunch and had it with some pita bread from the Farmer’s Market and some veggie soup!! and the verdict?

AMAZING!

It’s savoury and delish!! (and local YAY!)  If you live on Vancouver Island, look for it, it was about $5.50 for this block and I ate about 1/4 of it for lunch today!!    I found it in the deli section at Quality Foods!

I love finding new lunch worthy products!!

As for the veggie soup.

I served it over fresh spinach with dried chow mein noodles on top (for crunch)

 “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” Soup!

1/2 green pepper

4 carrots

2 stalks celery

2 precooked potatoes

4 broccoli stalks

1/2 head cauliflower

1/2 onion

4 cloves garlic

Just enough water to cover everything!!

Boiled it together for a few minutes (to make everything a wee bit soft, but not too soft)

Then I blended it all together (in batches)

In the final batch I added 1/4 cup cashews (for creaminess)

To this I added for flavour

1 tsp lemon juice

1 TBSP miso

1 cube (no) chicken bullion

1 TBSP hot sauce

and a bunch of spices (I think I added curry)

S & P to taste!!

It was tasty, we had it for 2 dinners (with some bread) and then I had it for lunch with the pate and pita!

Really you can just have fun with it, and add whatever you like!

I LOVED the spinach in it too! That was my favourite addition!

Happy Wednesday to you!!!!!!!!

Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend?  Do tell?

  1. Glad you liked my suggestion! :-)

    That pate looks so tasty. I love dips and nibbles and snacks.

    But that soup looks STELLAR. Very smart idea to put some miso in there, I'm sure that takes the flavor to a whole new level.

  7. Very Nice!! So simple but looks so delicious! I never liked soup myself but when I ate it I found I only like cream soups, as a vegan you can imagine how difficult it was to find non-cream, non-dairy soups.

    My boyfriend loves soup and now I have this fantastic one to try - thanks for the post :)
