Hearty Cream of Tomato - Bean Soup - Vegan, Gluten-Free




If you have only ever eaten Cream of Tomato soup from a can, this will be a tasty coup for you!
Here is another wonderful bean recipe adapted from my fave The Great Vegan Bean Book: More than 100 Delicious Plant-Based Dishes Packed with the Kindest Protein in Town! - Includes Soy-Free and Gluten-Free Recipes! .  This creamy tomato-bean soup will fill in the gaps for anyone who feels they just don't have the time or energy to cook up a healthy lunch -- the secret is to pre-cook your beans in a large quantity and freeze them.  Then just assemble your other ingredients and presto, you have a very nutritious base to your lunch in less time than it would take you to order and be served at your typical restaurant. And you will know what is actually IN this soup !

INGREDIENTS:

2 T.      Olive Oil or Vegetable Broth
1/2       Onion, minced
3 cloves Garlic
1 tsp.    Marjoram
1 tsp.    Thyme
1/2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1/4 tsp. fresh or ground Rosemary
2 C.      non-dairy Mylk
2 Cans  Organic Tomato Sauce (14 oz/398 ml each) (I buy mine at Costco- Kirkland Brand)
1 1/2 C. cooked White Beans
Celtic Sea Salt to taste, added at the end of the cooking process or by individual eaters
Pepper to taste

METHOD:
  1. Heat the Olive Oil or Broth over medium heat in a heavy, NOT non-stick sauce pan, and fry up the onions util translucent, tender.  Add the rest of the herbs and garlic and cook for 2+ minutes.
  2. Blend up the Onions, Garlic, Herbs, Non-Dairy Mylk, Tomatoes, and Beans until as smooth as possible either with your Vitamix or (or with an immersion blender or other type-- just don't count on getting the beans as smooth as you will with a Vitamix).
  3. Pour back into the pot and heat through (medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes)
  4. Serve Celtic Sea Salt and Pepper in Grinder so individual diners can spice to their own desired 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
