When I think of comfort food it definitely involves a creamy texture. This one just uses a little bit of vegan cream cheese per serving which makes it a lot less naughty.
You can, as always, substitute veggies in this dish depending on your individual tastes.
I used Lotus Foods Jade Rice Noodles* to keep it gluten free. But feel free to use any type of preferred rice/noodle/grain.
*Make sure you buy the Ramen Cakes, not soup.
I have mentioned before that I used to not like the taste of Brussels Sprouts. I have spent many hours creating tasty creations with them and am now a BS-convert!
Did you know these sweet little cabbage-wanna-bes boast 124% of the RDA of Vitamin C. Plus a serving only contains 38 calories and 0.3 grams of fat!
The key, in my opinion, is to make them the a star ingredient in several of my creations because, after all, we all need some extra C!
You can serve this with any type of grain and can also substitute the red/yellow pepper with green.
Don’t freak out if you are seeing the word “sausage” in the headline, it’s vegan. Trust me when I promise you that everything on this site is vegan!
There is a local restaurant that I always thought made the best lentil soup…until now. This has become a new favorite in our house for vegans and non-vegans, alike.
I used the Trader Joe’s Italian Sausage-less Sausage in this soup and it tastes absolutely fantastic. You can also top each bowl with a dollop of vegan sour cream for extra creaminess.
