Dearest Mofoing friends,
Here I am, Day 3 of our glorious month of Mofember, the VEGAN MONTH OF FOOD, and I arrive a little late but bearing a wondrous hearty soup with which to temper this flipping awful weather we’ve been having.
It was on a recent dreary day that I delved into the unknown depths of the vegetable basket and decided to make use of whatever was in there. I fried up some onion and ginger in a little olive oil, then added finely chopped squash, parsnip, carrot and swede. I threw in a cup of red lentils and plenty of vegetable stock.
I left it all to bubble until the vegetables were good and soft, then blended it all into a thick and hearty soup. I stirred in a little soya cream when serving up.
I might find MOFO a little bit of a struggle this year, but I won’t go into all that right now. Hopefully I have the time to make the most of the suggested daily themes, though, as well as the weekly. Currently I am mostly adjusting to some new medication with a very dry mouth and a very spaced-out brain, as well as watching loads of American Horror Story (maybe not good for the brain in combination?)
I’m determined to ride the MOFO train ALL THE WAY this month after a couple of failed attempts in recent years. I’ll also be doing my best to visit other blogs and report back on the splendid posts I find.
Happy MOFO everyone! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with 🙂
