I know, I know … I should have been blogging for the past two weeks. It got busy before New York Comic Con, and then I got busy afterward. That, though, is for another post.

I am moving on to creamy black bean soup. I used the exact recipe from “Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food” by Alicia Simpson.

It had a few, simple ingredients and maybe 20 minutes, tops. AMAZINGLY, it was creamy and hardy, minus soy milk or any type of fatty, vegan creamer.

It was a perfect dish for busy me, who wants a hearty cup of soup at the end of a long day during the fall.

Unfortunately, no photos! I guess it was just too yummy. I do have photos for other recipes from Simpson’s book; posts to come soon.


Vegan MoFo: Soup & vegan finds in mainstream media

Hello, all! I mean to post more often but work has been crazy.
I love soup. And it’s definitely that time of year.
I also love it when I read a mainstream magazine and there is a vegan recipe. Not a vegan-adaptable recipe, but an actual vegan recipe.
Self magazine with Kim Kardashian on it (March, April or May’s edition) had this soup recipe, and I love it.
It’s super easy, too: Vegetable broth, water, tomatoes, chickpeas, frozen peas, arugula and garlic.
I learned a lesson from this soup, though. Nothing is ever too easy.
I put the soup in a coffee mug and microwaved it. It was popping in the microwave but I didn’t think it would pop in my FACE. I burned my face a little but I didn’t get it in my eye.

This is the day AFTER the soup incident. And again, forgot to take a photo until I hate half of it.
