I know it’s March and I should have posted this recipe in October, but hey – we’re back to fall weather in Amsterdam, so why not give this fall recipe a try? This recipe for vegan pumpkin soup is so basic, you can’t fail.
I tried my first real ramen in Japan last year and it was an experience – sitting around the bar overlooking the kitchen, in the traditional Japanese way. The vegan broth was filled with ramen noodles, tofu, spring onions, herbs and vegetables, and tasted amazing. I knew I had to try making my own ramen once I returned home.
I was sick last week, and basically lived off of fruits, vegetables and ginger until I started feeling better. Instead of taking medicine, I gave my body rest and healthy food and that was all it needed to fight the cold.
It’s October! Fall has officially started, the temperatures have cooled off and I am writing this post from underneath a blanket on the couch, with a cup of hot tea in hand, a candle burning on the table and a dark & chilly evening unfolding outside.
Winter time is soup time for me. And even though I don’t crave soup all too often, I sometimes need a warm bowl to nourish my body when it gets colder. This creamy potato soup hit the spot just right, as it integrates my favorite food – potatoes – in a healthy way.
This lentil soup is another recipe for the colder fall days, which we have been getting quite a few of here in Germany in the past weeks. It’s pretty simple, yet nourishing and warming. Lentils should be one of the main foods of a vegan diet and soups like this one are a great way to incorporate them.
