Since 'tis the season for cookie swaps, dessert trays, and care packages of goodies, I thought I'd compile all the goodies I've posted in the past into one, awesome post.
I love roasted cauliflower. I also love roasted garlic. So for me, the next step was to combine them into this amazing effin' soup.
I was craving something hot and creamy, as we are having pretty cold weather here in the desert. This soup definitely checked all those boxes. It was totally crave-worthy, and gluten free and vegan. Win!
This soup was the product of wanting soup and wanting to eat up some items from my pantry and fridge. And it worked beautifully. This was a beautiful effin' soup. It was thick, rich, hearty, and had a wonderful depth of flavor. It was probably the best soup I've had this season, and I've been eating a lot of soups. It was so good that I couldn't wait to write it down and share it with all of you. It was kinda like a better version of a minestrone. Much better. It's all stuff that you really should have on hand all the time anyway, so it should be pretty easy for you to rock it out. I wouldn't hesitate to use frozen spinach if you don't have any fresh on hand. I just happened to have it because of my green smoothies. So, yeah, Hearty Italian Vegetable Soup is hearty. And awesome. And incredibly low fat. And tasty. Hungry yet?
The holidays always remind me of my childhood. When choosing a menu to feed my relatives, I like to incorporate dishes that I recall them serving at parties way back when.
This weekend, I was graced with the presence of my dad's ex-wife, who raised me from 2-10. She used to put out French onion dip, but it was usually made with the soup packet. I decided to recreate it, you know, how we do it in the Eff Yeah household.
Without further ado, here it is. It was better than anything I'd ever had before, but with the same flavor profile. The chunks of diced onions added a wonderful texture. We couldn't leave it alone. It was amazing. This is sure to be a hit. Check it out and see for yourself. Let me know how you like it in the comments.
