Dinner: Velvet Veggie Soup with Swiss Chard and Cashew Creme. #vegan

Velvet Veggie & Bean Soup w. Cashew Creme and Greens

First off I can’t believe I’ve made it to 10 posts in VeganMoFo. The first year of VeganMofo’s life I think I posted 29 posts that month. The rest of the years I failed miserably at it. I still blame my children. :)

Now onto the post. The weather was middle of August hot a few days ago and now I’m wearing my Herbivore hoodie I picked up while in Portland for VidaVeganCon. I’ve got fall flavors and soup on my mind all of a sudden and I can’t be happier. I freaking love the fall! Weather and food…all of it. With it being hoodie weather and all I needed to make a soup. I pulled both crisper bins from the fridge out onto the kitchen floor and went searching. I found some zucchini and celery from my last co-op box that needed to be used ASAP along with some sweet potatoes in a cabinet drawer. I diced them all small with some onions and garlic, broth and whole peeled tomatoes plus some herbs then added some beans. While it was cooking I knew my kids weren’t going to eat it as is so I decided to blend it all in the vitamix. Reno was intrigued by the beautiful color and agreed to try it. She actually liked it! Miles wasn’t having it which surprised me. I served the soup with a homemade sweet cashew creme and some sauteed swiss chard. My husband and daughter crumbled up some crackers into their bowls.  For my son I mixed some leftover pasta into a bit of the soup and he ate it up! Trickery FTW!

Reno's Lunch: velvet veggie and bean soup, crackers, apple, field roast sausage. #vegan

My daughter liked the soup so much that she immediately asked if she could have it for lunch. I was thrilled! She didn’t want the “green stuff” and I was fine with that since the soup was loaded with veggies and beans. We also had to leave out the cashew cream because we don’t bring nuts to school.  I quickly cooked up a Field Roast Sausage for her this morning and added a pack of crackers and a whole apple. She promised she would eat all the soup and sausage. I hope she did!

I have more ingredients to make this soup again so I’ll be making more today and freezing portions of it for lunches and dinners for all 4 of us. I’m already thinking of what soup to make next!
