The recipe was found on the amazing Joy the Baker's recipe page.
2 T olive oil
1 medium yellow onion chopped
3 garlic cloves
1 pound cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 T soy sauce (I also used Bragg's Amino Acids)
1 T Worcestershire sauce (Vegan)
about 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper (I went overbaod and my soup had a real kick to it - but I loved it - I think it gave me heartburn so my tummy did not enjoy)
3 C vegetable broth
salt to taste
1/2 Cup cashews and 1/2 Cup Water
I pretty much followed Joy's recipe exactly. No variations - I didn't have to mess with it because it was that great!!
In a large soup pot let olive oil heat up, add onions and cook until translucent, add garlic, then add the mushrooms.
After mushrooms begin to cook down add pepper and vegetable broth and cook at a summer until mushrooms are soft.
When soup is cooking, prepare your cashew cream. Blend water & cashews together until smooth. Pour into a cup and set aside.
After mushrooms are soft transfer the soup to blender in batches (I did 3). After blending I placed into a large bowl, and stirred the cashew cream in.
The recipe said to strain the soup with a mesh strainer, which I did not do. I got a couple small chunks of cashews but I think the Vita-Mix did a great job and there wasn't that many. If you don't have a high speed blender I would probably recommend straining your soup.
This soup is amazing as Joy's blog is as well. My mouth is watering thinking about it...
Thank goodness I have a cup of it for lunch today ;)
This soup will not dissapoint!!!
So I have been wanting to try the Brazilian Blowout on my hair for awhile now. I know some people who got it and loved it. I didn't think it would do much for me since my hair is straight when blow dryed. I thought it might help some of my fly aways and I figured what the heck.
Really not much of a difference but it is a little more sleeker and doesn't require any flat ironing which is a plus. It was fun to try and is supposed to last 3-4 weeks but I am not sure if I will be doing it again. Considering my hair type I don't think it is really necessary. But I am enjoying it while it lasts!
I recently one Emily's first giveaway on her blog One Sweet Vegan.
She made me Shirley's Famous Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (VEGAN)
These cookies were amazing and Emily is a truly gifted Vegan cook!!!
I couldn't stop eating them and I can't wait to make them myself!
Thank you Emily!!
