VeganMoFo: Soup

Last night I cooked dinner. I roasted asparagus and made the very fatty coconut curry red lentil soup from Sarah Kramer's La Dolce Vegan. Unlike Matt, I generally need recipes to cook and had my eye on making this soup for awhile. In fact, I tend to accumulate the ingredients but never make anything. So I finally got to open the jar of curry paste I bought months ago and use some of the red lentils I collect. Also made a big salad. Anyway, it looks like Sarah Kramer's book tour is bringing her to DC and I'm excited. I really like her new cookbook Vegan A Go-Go and have already traveled with it. The section about her mugging and being safe when traveling was especially moving.

That all looks very nice. Asparagus is the best!

I keep hearing such good things about La Dolce Vegan. Thanks for posting on that fabulous looking soup. I really like seeing pics of things and hearing about them. Helps me figure out what to make / which cookbooks to get.

La Dolce Vegan is a great cookbook, very approachable and easy to use. I've had to buy several copies now because I keep giving them away to friends and relatives. The cookie recipes are all sure-fire, especially nice around the holiday season.
