SSFC: Vegan theme

The Southern SOLE Food Challenge has another themed-challenge this week – Vegan. That’s a semi-tough one for me.

Most of my soups are made with chicken or beef broth so I had to break my habits and make a wonderful vegetable broth for this theme. I also use cheese and eggs a lot, so that was another meal planning habit to set aside when planning a meal for this theme. With everything else that is happening in my life right now I needed to keep this simple and make soup. I also should mention that I am not doing any of the cooking at all, but I am a part of the planning. My mom is doing all the work, I just tell her what is in the freezer, we reviewed what I had on hand in the refrigerator and we went from there.

everything by the fridge shelves

  • Chard – from the garden
  • squash & carrots – local farmer market
  • onion – from the freezer (garden)
  • Zucchini – from the freezer (garden)


Sincerely, Emily

    whether soup is hearty meat or thick vegetable potage it’s soul food and its in the soup realm that we are all able to leave the table replete with simple happiness 🙂

    Your soup looks very tasty! How do you freeze your zucchini? Do you blanch it or not? It is so nice of your Mom to be helping you and to spend time together. Get well fast! Nancy

    • Hi Nancy, the soup was great. For the zucchini I sliced it in half, the again. I cut out the pithy seedy center (I was using the last of the zucchini that had sat on the counter too long) then just sliced it. I laid it all out on a baking/cookie sheet lined with waxed paper (parchment might work, I just didn’t want to be chipping it off the metal pan and froze. Once it was completely frozen I bagged it and kept in freezer. So far I have only added it to soup and it has been a nice addition.

    • Sorry – forgot to add – I did not blanch it, just sliced and froze

    I’m sure it smelled just as good as it looks.
