Vegan Pan Asian Mushroom Soup

This soup is all about the broth. Layers of flavor come together to create a complex broth in a relatively short amount of time.

It has a strong chinese influence, but it draws from various cultures.

It's great on its own and delicious over rice too. All the flavor is in that deep, dark, unctuous broth.

I get a lot of searches for this... so as far as I know, yes, Sabbra Hummus is vegan. It's just chick peas, lemon juice and tahini for the most part. You could contact Sabbra to confirm, but I think it's safe to say hummus of any sort of vegan. It's simply the nature of hummus.

Datem on the other hand is a complete mystery. I should no doubt be in contact with various bread companies, but do I really want to know the asnwer. Do I really want to discover that ordinary wheat bread is somehow made using dead animal parts. It's not a best case scenario, that's for sure.

Another popular search is Progresso vegetarian soup. There are several of which I"m avare. What I appreciate about this brand is they label them accordinly. It's very considerate.

If it says vegetable soup on the front and you turn the can to the nutritonal info, it may say in the top in bold that it's non-vegetarian. Smart. A lot of folks assume if it says veg on the front that it's safe.

Plenty are vegetarian. They are clearly labelled as such at the top of the ingredient list. My favorite is the lentil soup. It's tasty, convenient and has twice the protein of most of the chicken soups. Take that meat eaters.

I like it room temp on top of salad. I haven't really reheated my food for years. Nor have I wamred up pre-cooked canned/boxed stuff. it totally simplifies things. It saves electricity, saves time and no burned tongues.

Also the microwave and heat in general, kill the flavors of food. You're best avoiding it whenever you can.
