i had been looking forward to the sexy vegan cookbook for ages. brian (the author) used to write incredible guest posts for my old blog, and i knew from personal experience that his home delivery service was delicious. naturally when the highly anticipated cookbook arrived in the mail, i had no idea what to make first.
luckily, brian helped me with the decision. his book is littered with witty side notes, and in the soup section, he mentions that soup is his favorite food. it was decided: i’d first make a soup recipe. while thumbing through the several appetizing options, i noticed that brian called out minestrone as his favorite soup. the favorite of the favorite! i bought all the ingredients that day and set out to make the minestrone that night.
i’m happy to report that it lived up to the double favorite bar in every way. it was simple to make, healthy, flavorful and hearty. it coved all the necessary bases: beans for protein, noodles for carbs, and loads of fresh vegetables.
can’t wait to work my way through the rest of the sexy vegan cookbook!
