Curry Veggie Stew, Giveaway Links, Spoken Word Poetry Video




Oops, I did it again! I made another soup recipe. This one is jam-packed with veggies, both frozen and fresh.

Curry Veggie Stew

3 bunches kale stalks, chopped
1 bunch carrots, diced
1 eggplant, diced
1 bag frozen broccoli florets
1 bag frozen spinach
1 cup yellow split peas
5 cups water
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
1 tbsp Braggs
1 tbsp mustard

In a big soup pot, add all veggies (if using an onion, add that first), split peas, and water. Cook about an hour, until veggies and peas are soft. Season to taste.

It's amazing, but the broccoli and eggplant are not even detectable when it's done because they cook down so much. This is the perfect recipe for any kind of vegetable you don't like that much. And of course, a perfect way to use your kale stalks!

And if you're ready for something that might scare you... The Vegan McPizza - straight out of the "This Is Why You're Fat" cultural tradition:

And if you make a Vegan McPizza (which I will never do, BTW) and then you feel like a big fatass, watch this video and feel a little better. Just kidding - watch the video anyways, because this guy is a wicked spoken word poet and it's cool. I would not say that I am into poetry or really anything artsy, but I still admire this guy's skill and there's a good message!

  2. I was pretty proud of myself. It's like a challenge - how many veggies can you fit in a soup?!
