Vegan Asian Soup

Vegan Asian Soup

I suddenly found myself staring down a refrigerator that was so full of produce that I could barely shut it on Saturday morning.  I chose to ignore that and went about my normal routine: a smoothie, and the newest episode of Jamie’s 15 minute meals.  If you have been around the blog for a while

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup

I am not always super upbeat and positive, but I really try to see the positive, and to be positive.  Because there really is a rainbow from every rain and all that stuff Sesame Street always tried to teach you. So while winter is cold, and can start feeling long, I am taking time to

Sherried Tomato Basil Soup (Vegan)

Oh hello!! It feels like it’s been a while since we chatted.  I didn’t prattle on as much as usual during my Thanksgiving series over the last couple of weeks.  So I am pretty excited to begin spilling by guts again.  I know that’s why you come visit me here, not for the recipes.  Right?

Vegan Homemade Ramen Noodles

Sometimes, when I am watching 30 Rock, I realized how similar I am sometimes to Liz Lemon.  It’s generally a pretty frightening realization. But I recently had a revelation about doing my dishes. I realized that the key to keeping my kitchen clean isn’t about getting the dishes into the dishwasher, it’s in making sure

White Bean Chili (Vegan & Gluten Free)

White Bean Chili (Vegan & Gluten Free)

This chili is insane. This is my vegan version of a chicken chili.   It was so easy to make, and it came out sooo much better than I expected!! I think it might be a faux pas to talk about how much you liked your own recipe.  I am clearly very guilty of this. But

Black Bean Soup (Vegetarian and Vegan)

I might be a bit on a soup kick.  I can’t really help myself.  Other than my usual obsession with it, and need to eat it regularly, hubby bought me these soup crocks for Christmas.  Of course I had to make soups!!  I always find it hilarious when he tells my Mom what I want

I started the cleanse on Saturday, after going out for a delicious last non cleanse meal at a super yummy Mexican restaurant Friday night. (Bean and cheese burritos are my weakness!)

Potato and Cheese Soup

Potato and Cheese Soup

You can’t go wrong with potatoes and cheese.  I love soup in the cooler weather and this is so easy and so fantastic.  It also freezes super well, so you can make a big batch and freeze it. When I made a batch of Healthy Mashed Potatoes, I used half for this soup and half

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup (Vegan)

Has anyone else ever noticed how when you cut open a butternut squash it smells a little like a watermelon?  It could be just me… but I am in love with it.  It smells so fresh and delicious, and has such a mild sweet yummy flavor when roasted. Roasted is my favorite way to approach

Vegan Minestrone Soup

Vegan Minestrone Soup

Cooler weather?  Bring it on.  I am ready to live on soups alone!!  I love curling up with a bowl of hot soup on a cold day, nothing quite says comfort as well as that. This soup is really good.  It’s loaded up with vegetables, but super filling because of the beans and pasta.  It
