Afterwork Gourmet - January 2016
January is the perfect time of year when a hearty, rich bowl of cream of vegetable soup is much appreciated. What might not be as welcome is the saturated fat in that cream or the whole milk that is sometimes used to generate similar results.
If you’ve never tried a vegan recipe before, this might be the time to give it a shot. Cooks in that specialty have come up with delicious ways to richen your soups without adding to your health woes.
Nava Atlas, for instance, author of many vegan and vegetarian books, including the new Plant Power: Transform Your Kitchen, Plate and Life with More than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes, is an expert at creating cream of vegetable soups without any cream at all.
