The Complete Book of 400 Soups.

    My aunt gave my dad and I a soup cookbook called The Complete Book of 400 Soups(pictured below). None of the soups are vegan, but a lot of them are vegetarian. They are easily veganized though. Even without vegan soups I still would recommend this book, because of all the great ideas for soups it has. Well onto my boring story of what soup I made.
   My dad wanted to make a recipe from one of the cookbooks we have. I wanted to do something easy and not to hard so I grabbed the soup book since I hadn't made anything from it yet. I bookmarked a few recipes that seemed yummy, easy, not to many ingredients, and some what fast. I wanted to make red pepper sweet potato soup if I remember right, but I didn't write down the ingredients for it and went straight to the grocery store. Well when I arrived there I forgot exactly what I needed for the soup I wanted to make. My dad remembered a broccoli almond soup that he wanted. We had most of the ingredients for it besides the broccoli and almond milk to replace the cream. When we got home I double looked at the recipe and changed a few things of it like using olive oil instead of butter. I then made the changes, measured ingredients  and then put my dad to work making it because I had other stuff to do. He toasted almonds did whatever else the recipe called for.

Well the soup was taste great even though my picture isn't! I could easily make this again, but I should probably slurp up the rest that I threw in the freezer first! 

Do you ever freeze soups and then reheat it? Does it still taste as good as when you first made it?


  1. My grandma always froze her soups. They tasted great(maybe even more flavorful)! I love making soup. It's so quick and filling.

  2. I love soups! And I do freeze them all the time. It's one of the easiest food to freeze, I think.
