When I first read this recipe I thought to myself, "What? No potatoes?" As a new vegan I find it important that meals are as hearty and satisfying as possible. So, with such a promising start, I eagerly set to work in the kitchen. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly except after sauteeing all the veggies I added 2 cups veggie broth along w/ th potatoes and simmered that until they were fork tender. I then added 1 cup frozen corn and 1 can cream style corn and the rest of the spices. (I however, did not add the garlic clove.) It was delicious! 5*****'s after changes.


Not bad. Spices are well blended. I did do something differently. I added more corn, (because it didn't look like there was enough for my tastes) and I used vegetable base instead of boullion. My soup never did thicken up so I used a trick my hubby learned in culinary art school. I added 1/2 cup of mashed potato flakes. Not bad. Good on a cold day like this.


I try to follow recipes but it's so hard to do as I'm told. I added broccoli and cauliflower chopped very small at the same time as the carrots. Then I diced 2 red potatoes, cooked them separately and blended them slightly before adding them. As far as spices are concerned, I added some cayenne and bay leaves plus a dash or two of red wine vinegar for balance. The result was very very yummy and I didn't really need flour thanks to the potatoes. My b/f and I are veggie so I'll add some good bread and wine; It's dinner!
