The weather is finally taking a turn for cooler temperatures. The other day we had a nice strong breeze that cooled things down. The only thing missing were the swirling leaves. Oh I am so ready for cooler temperatures, beautiful bold Autumn colors, the scent of the crisp air, and soup. Yes, soup. I always call Autumn and winter "soup season".
Now that I am 95%+ raw vegan I am wondering how I will get through soup season without giant cauldrons of vegetable soup, potatoe soup, chili, chicken noodle and so many more that are accidental bowls of deliciousness. I know there are several websites with raw soup recipes. But I may also choose to make caulfrons of vegan soup and raw bread.
This will also be a great time to dehydrate crunchy snacks like kale chips, crackers, and chip chips. I am gathering winter recipes that use seasonal produce, such as persimmons and pumpkin.
So here's to soup season! Sweaters and swirling leaves and walks in the park! Enjoy the season!
