Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

The base for this soup is so rich with a cheesy flavor you won’t miss the actual cheese at all.

Serve this with crusty bread and you … Continue reading Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

I think my slight aversion to them was because I had only ever tasted them in salads and I wasn’t a huge fan. After making … Continue reading Creamy Golden Lentil Stew

Vegan Italian Orzo Soup

I have never made orzo before but when I saw this recipe on Gimmie Some Oven I knew I needed to try it. As usual I adapted it to fit our family (or rather pantry) and I love how turned out.
