Plant-based… er… vegan soup
By popular demand on FB, I’m attempting to use this recipe program again. This technology stuff is super challenging for the middle-aged brain.
As my dad used to say: “Speak for yourself!”
This from the guy who got his first computer at the age of 75 and, while he excelled at mastering its use, he also promptly landed in various chat rooms that were wholly inappropriate for a man his age who wasn’t looking for trouble.
When the person you’re chatting up asks if you’re M or F and then needs to clarify that means boy or girl because you’re just not picking up on what going on — red flag folks but no. The unsuspecting user (read: teenager) on the other end finally flat out asked my dad his age. Not to be rude, he replies. Honestly, of course. End of conversation.
I suggested he stick to sending emails to his old friends (like really old) before the FBI came a knocking at his front door.
Does plant-based vegan food rate as food porn? Yes. It does.
Posting photos of my food both that which is served to me and the stuff I create is just one of the many ways I entertain myself with my phone. (The other is trolling on Twitter in case you’re wondering.)
So apparently these food pics can annoy some folks. I know this because they tell me.
There are those that think posting pictures of food is stupid. Personally, I think they may be a tad jealous that they either can’t cook or eat out, or both. Regardless, not my problem.
And there are others who are annoyed that the recipe is not included. This post is for the latter. The former can just bugger off and post pics of whatever the hell is of interest to them. Alrighty then. Let’s try this recipe thing.
Rustic Vegan Cauliflower Soup
I’ll start with the cauliflower but it has other plants-based ingredients worth noting. It’s a cruciferous vegetable like broccoli or kale. Need I say more? Ok then.
It’s loaded with antioxidant powerhouses phytonutrients, the most notable being the sulfur-containing compounds glucosinolates. These crucifers support a bunch of systems including cardiovascular, digestive, immune, inflammatory, and detoxification.
This recipe also contains garlic, leeks, and scallions which are alliums. Allium is a genus of flowering plants that containing hundreds of species, including the beautiful onion family and garlic. In addition to being delicious, they are also good for you.
All the other stuff is great too!
