Roast Pepper - Potato Comfort Soup

Roast Pepper-Potato Comfort Soup
This roasted pepper-potato soup is a delicious, nutritious, warming comfort food that everyone will love. It is vegan (although you are free to plug in your animal products as subs) and gluten-free. The fragrance while it is cooking will draw everyone in the neighbourhood on a cool day. My dog is also much attracted by the fragrance.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 3 T. Coconut Oil or Ghee (if not vegan)
  • 3 - 4 Organic Red and/or Orange Bell Peppers
  • 1 Medium or 2 Small Organic Yellow Onion(s)
  • 1 Large Organic Potato, peeled and diced (1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 Liter / Quart Organic Vegetable Broth (or use 2 Organic Vegetable Bouillon Cubes in 1 Liter of Water)
  • 1/4 C. non-dairy Mylk, made from organically-grown nuts, soy, etc.
  • Cayenne, Celtic Sea Salt and Pepper to taste  
METHOD:
  • Roast the Peppers:  Wash and dry them.  Place them each in the oven, close together under the grill on the rack (no pan needed).  Turn oven to "Broil" or "Grill" and close oven door.  Grill for around 3-5 minutes, until black (and fragrant) and then turn on to another side.  (Use oven gloves) Do this until all sides of pepper are black.  Put the peppers in one of those brown paper bags you have been hoarding.  Fold the top over.  Let them steam in there for about 10 - 15 minutes.  You can do some of the other prep while that happens.  Then take them out, remove seeds, remove skins (should come off with no problem whatsoever), and coursely chop.  Set aside.
  • Heat up a Dutch oven or medium-large soup pot to melt the coconut oil/ghee.  Add in the chopped onions and saute, stirring occasionally, for about 3-5 minutes.  Add in the potatoes and stir around in there for another couple of minutes (just to cover surface with oil).  Then add in the garlic and roast peppers.  Stir continually and cook for another 2 or so minutes.
  • Add the stock and, stirring, bring to a boil.  Simmer over medium heat until the potatoes are soft.
  • In a blender or food processor, puree the soup until smooth.  It's a good idea to either let it cool somewhat before blending, or to make sure you do only half portions at a time and hold the lid down so it doesn't blow off via the pressure of the heat and steam.  Biggo mess, that.  
  • Return the soup to pot and, over low heat, add the cashew cream or nut milk or other non-dairy milk. Stir well.
  • Add in Salt, Pepper and Cayenne to taste

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
