Asparagus is a wonder-food! It is a great source of Vitamin K which is the vitamin that regulates blood clotting. However, if you are on a blood-thinning medication, it is advisable to check with your health-care provider to make sure asparagus is on your approved list.
In addition, asparagus is a great natural diuretic, nourishes the digestive tract, is a good source of fiber plus is considered an anti-inflammatory food with the extra bonus of being an antioxidant. All in all, this food should be showing up on your table a few times a month!
This dish comes together rather quickly…the risotto needs to be slow-cooked so try not to rush it!
I just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy. It is an absolutely beautiful country and the people are amazingly kind. My only complaint is there is not a lot of vegan food.
I have always loved Pasta Fagioli but the restaurants there used chicken broth for a base and usually included some type of meat.
After I returned home and stocked up the refrigerator I created the following recipe. You can eliminate the Tofurky Spinach Pesto Sausage but it does add a lot of flavor to the dish.
I have made Potato Leek Soup so many times! The other night I decided to try something different. I needed to use up a 32-oz. bag of Organic Riced Cauliflower and also had a few leeks on hand. The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea. I love using cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes…so why not?!
This soup only uses a few ingredients and comes together super-quick. You can omit the Vegan Mozzarella, use a little more/less, or substitute another variety…you really can’t lose.
With the fall months just a few weeks away, I would recommend you give this yummy soup a try!
