Still a week (at least) behind - Cauliflower Soup

YUM! This was so good - it's been really cold here and a nice warm soup was just what we needed for lunch. My only substitutions were - I had to use Red Potatoes - we actually grew some Yukon Gold in our garden - but they are long gone - and of course they are not sold here in TinyTown - along with Garam Masala - so I made my own - I mixed some cinnamon, cumin, caraway seeds, cloves, and nutmeg in the mortar and pestle - I didn't have any cardamom either - And Coconut Milk is not readily available here either so I made a substitute that I found at http://www.fatfree.com/archive/2001/jan/msg00099.html (what did we ever do without Google) and even with a couple of substitutions the soup was still great...

This is the Coconut Milk substitute (doubled):

a teaspoon of artificial coconut flavor to a half cup of plain soy milk or rice milk, a tiny bit of sweetener and a little thickener (arrowroot or cornstarch). If you use vanillia or sweet soy/rice milk, omit the sweetener. Posted to fatfree digest V99# 080


This soup is pretty spicy - in fact next time - I'll probably halve the cayenne...

Here it is bubbling away - it actually got a lot thicker and more colorful after about 45 minutes simmering...

It was so smooth and rich - you can see how the folds hold their shape in the bowl...

Hi again!
Just wanted to pass on this information ...

Boston Magazine recently published an article all about us this month - here is the link:

Oh So Soy!

If you have a few minutes to spare, could do us a huge favor and read the article and comment at the bottom of the page? We're very excited about getting such great press, especially from a magazine of this caliber. If everyone drops by and leaves a quick comment, soon there will be no doubt in any publisher's mind: YES, readers absolutely do want to know about vegan happenings and developments. Please don't hesitate to repost the article on your blog and spread the world!

Thanks!
