Soups on!


If you’re looking for a quick and tasty soup, it’s hard to do much better than Imagine Foods’ Creamy Potato and Leek Soup, a wonderful organic (and vegan) soup that heats up quickly (a minute in the microwave will do it). Sprinkle some rice cheese and some fresh chives on top and you have yourself a great dinner. It’s also not terribly expensive and I’ve even seen it at the local Giant.

Alternatively, if you’re into making soups but don’t have an hour-and-a-half to spend, might I recommend Curried Carrot Soup from Lorna Sass’ Short-Cut Vegetarian. It’s wonderful creaminess comes from coconut milk which also serves to mute the potentially overpowering flavors of curry and a pound of carrots. I’m a big fan of this one for its rich, but not overwhelming, flavor, the nutrional punch it packs, and it’s quick and easy nature (30 minutes will cover preparation and cooking). However, I will say that either the curry or the coconut milk didn’t agree with me well afterwards.

Now if Lorna Sass would just get her own web site…
