My Odd Obsession With This 'Thang Called Soup

Ya us vegans are weird folk, nah not really but if you know any real life vegans, you know they are down with SOUP... Soup is on the same level as hummus, garbanzo bean salad sammies, and tofu scrambles: IF YOU DON'T LIKE THESE ITEMS YOU NEED TO GET YOUR VEGAN HEAD CHECKED OUT because you officially became wierder to a huge group of pretty rad weirdos, just sayin...

SOUP is this magical substance that fills your belly full of joy :) You can also pack in tons of nutrients, chuck in random shit from your fridge that needs to be used up (In something other than my infamous "Slop Stirfrys"), and have meals for days! Pictured above is the tried and true Minestrone recipe I always use with the modifications always being only 1 can of garbanzos and no pasta (With the substitution of extra veggies)... I sometimes even omit the oil and just cook the veggies in a little broth instead.

Recently I made Red Lentil Thai Chili and it was heavenly! Fair warning: If you are single and cooking for yourself and your friends hate sweet potatoes you probably want to half this recipe... I think I ate it for a week straight and got through 3/4th's of it before just chucking the rest.

I've made this Hot & Sour Soup recipe a few times as well and it is always a hit with me as I love spicy & vinegary foods :)

Lastly is some "Random Shit Soup" I made by boiling some potatoes in veggie broth, mashing them and adding some frozen corn, and seasonings... Not bad!

Ooh yum! I've been really into soup lately, too. I can't tell if it's a pregnancy craving or the cold weather, but whatever it is, I could eat soup every single day.
