Happy New Year! Warm Up w Superb Asian Vegan Hot & Sour Soup!
Happy New Year Everyone! Hope you all enjoyed the Holiday season. Personally I am ready to leave 2016 in the dust and move forward into the New Year! Between solstice retreat and celebrations, the blog took a little hiatus, but I am back now and will be sharing many yummy healthy recipes throughout 2017 and looking to add some video too!
So for the first post of the New Year I have some super delicious easy to make healthy soup for you! I made this for friends a few times over the Holidays and they couldn't get enough plus its winter most everywhere, except here in FL so when I crave it I just turn the A/C down LOL.
I adapted this one pot soup recipe from one I found on the internet adjusting some ingredients and adding lots of yummy vegetables! It only takes about 30 min start to finish, you can feed a crew or store and eat if for several days!
