Zucchini Chowder

Sliced Zucchini

This soup recipe is a tasty adaptation of a southwestern classic. When zucchini becomes over-abundant in the late summer garden, this is one way to use up a fair amount of it! Serve as an introduction to a southwestern-style meal of soft tacos or vegan quesadillas. more→

Vegan Pho Bo (Vietnamese Faux-”Beef” Noodle Soup)

The classic Pho Bo is made faux with seitan. This Asian soup is brimming with invigorating flavors and textures. I love it as a change of pace in the winter from thick soups and stews. It’s still every bit as warming. Despite the length of the ingredient list, this is a quick soup—you’ll be eating in about half an hour. Adapted from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for all Seasons by Nava Atlas.
