This week my friend Kathryn will be joining us for the first time. Kathryn is transitioning to veganism and has prepared Auntie Bonnie's Curried Apple Soup from the book How it all Vegan! by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. You will find her challenge post here on her newly christened blog The Hedgehog in the Kitchen. Isn't that the most adorable name for a blog? I love it!
And last but not least, it looks like Jeannette has delved into the fabulous Veganomicon for her cooking adventure this week. She also made a soup and one that I have been curious about so I'm happy to hear the results. Jeannette says:
This was a busy weekend for me, but I had lots of veggies in the fridge, so I had to cook! I chose to prepare Spicy Peanut and Eggplant Soup from Veganomicon. It was a bit of work, chopping and coordinating, but it was worth it! This is a yummy soup! The mild spiciness is a good counterpoint to the peanut butter. The eggplant was soft, and did not dominate the soup. (I did not brine the eggplant as instructed in the recipe. I skipped that step.) My peanut butter was nice and chunky, and the beans were still a bit crisp, so the soup's texture was enjoyable,too. I left out the cilantro (no surprise). I will definitely make this again!
