>Vegan MoFo: 2 Days in the Soup

>While it is warming up a bit, this weekend was cold and nasty. And we didn’t even get snow, which would’ve made it worthwhile. Instead, we closed up the house, fired up the woodburning stove, and turned on the crockpot. One of my all-time favorite cookbooks is Fresh from the Vegetarian Slowcooker. I’ve used it quite a bit and seldom been disappointed.
The first soup we tried is the French White Bean and Cabbage soup, which I topped with some homemade seitan sausage. I’ll admit that I seldom like cabbage, but this soup is really really good–the flavors are simple and good together wonderfully. I usually only buy cabbage so I can make a small amount of salad for my calabacitas, since cabbage holds up better than lettuce and lends a nice crunch to the dish. Unfortunately, the rest gets composted. Now I know what I’ll be making with my leftover cabbage.
The second soup is the Almost Irish Stew. I have to admit that I didn’t really care for this one. There’s just something slightly off about the taste and after I mentioned it Josh tasted it too (though I think he may just be sensitive to the power of suggestion). However, this only the second of 12-15 recipes I’ve tried that hasn’t been quite good. And, those Pilsbury crescent rolls more than made up for it, I’m ashamed to say.

(Funny…looking at those pictures side by side, the soups look the same, but the taste is totally different.)

    >aw the crescent rolls, such fond memories. I actually bought them and made them into cinnamon rolls once for my daughter because I didn’t have time to make them from scratch, and knew that was still better than what they’d be serving at her school. I didn’t want to tell anyone though:)

    >I did think they were the same soup. Did they both have the seitan sausage?I love the idea of tossing “sausage” in a bowl of cabbage soup though. That is genius.

    >I admit, I thoguht they were the same too. I thought, “Wait, where’s the second soup?” However they both look good in my book.
