My youngest son, Christopher, 26, gets the credit of bringing home the big news of becoming a vegan, and that was 2 yrs ago now. I resisted at first but as I watched him lose wt and clear up his eczema I was a believe,r slow but sure. That is what I am reading on this great website. Avoiding all animal products and getting healthy at the same time. YES!!
So I wanted to tell you all his favorite meal is usually any kind of potatoes, and brocc, cauliflower, cabbage and lots of any spice which as garlic, curry, and spice mixes that are sans salt. His all time favorite soup is lentil, and we are making up pots of that a lot.
We also like gimme lean products, the sausage flavor type. Lentil soup
Place half a bag of lentils, in a large 6 QT pot of water, or veggie broth I add one bouillon cube (Rapunzel, a vegan with no added salt or MSG)
Sautee the veggies you want in soup: chopped up onion, carrots, and celery in EVOO or water, then add to the pot
Add 2 - 3 potatoes, chopped up with skins on and that will thicken up the soup. And /or add some barley to pot and let it cook in soup.
Add 2 bay leaves, some sea salt and some cracked pepper for flavor.
Lentils need to cook for about 40 minutes
I think it tastes better the second day for sure!
