It’s National Homemade Soup Day … and since a good portion of the country is literally snowed-in, I thought it only fitting to do a quick wrap-up on some of my favorite soup recipes from this past year. Seven, to be exact : ) Note, some are vegan, and some are almost vegan … I do my best to substitute animal products for those that are plant-derived, but sometimes I do use a little dairy cheese, and sometimes, a little seafood. But hey, it’s a balance and 95, maybe 93, percent of what we offer here at Gastro-Licious is plant forward. Anyway, enjoy … because theses really are delicious!
MUSHROOM BRIE SOUP: We follow a plant-based diet which means (for me) that about 95 percent of what I eat is derived from plants. I don’t eat beef, poultry or pork, but I do occasionally eat some seafood—I don’t eat eggs or dairy BUT occasionally, what can I say, brie, Camembert and Havarti find their way into my mouth. I don’t know how it happens. It just does … hence, this soup, which is undeniably swoon worthy. Like for real. Decadent. Creamy. Rich. But only half as wicked as you might think. So give it a whirl. It’s “make someone fall in love with you” kind of good ; )
DISCLAIMER: Our recipes are just that, ours. Some are modified versions of dishes we’ve had elsewhere or old-favorites that contained animal proteins that we replaced with plant-based options, while others are a concentrated effort of trial and error. But all are intended to be altered by you and made to suit your tastes. So if you want more garlic or none at all, go for it. You do you ; ) Now for the serious part … periodically this site does offer health, nutrition and exercise information.
