Cauliflower-Asparagus soup

Standard

I made this soup as a little taste of spring! A delicious cauliflower-asparagus soup. Not only is it lactose-free but it is vegan as well!

Directions:

  1. Cut up the cauliflower, asperagus, garlic, and onion.
  2. Put in the soup pot with a little bit of oil on a medium heat for 5 minutes or so
  3. Add the vegetable broth and bring the soup to a boil
  4. Once it is boiling, let it simmer for 15 minutes or so – until the vegetables are soft
  5. Add the nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and chili powder
  6. Let the soup cool a little bit and then use an immersion blender until the soup is smooth- if you do not have an immersion blender you can use a regular blender
  7. Serve and enjoy! If you are a big fan of spicy food, you can add siracha or a different type of hot sauce.

Delicious Dairy-Free Restaurant Alert: BOSTON

Standard

Last night I went with one of my roommates to this delicious vegan/vegetarian diner in Cambridge called Veggie Galaxy. Both of us are lactose intolerance and were craving mac and cheese that tasted like the real thing.

We got vegan mac and cheese as well as a vegan oreo cheese cake (yes vegan oreo cheese cake…. it was mouth watering).

We got take out so when we got home, I doctored mine up by adding chicken and peas- as I’m not vegan, and had one of the most delicious meals ever!

I will be back to Veggie Galaxy soon- I want to try out their shakes and all the dairy-free alternatives I rarely have anymore!
