Vegan MOFO 2016: Treat Yourself! (to some winter vegetable soup)

Vegan MOFO 2016: Treat Yourself! (to some winter vegetable soup) Posted on 03/11/20165 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

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 🙂

  1. That looks blooming delightful, I may also whip up some soup this week. You’re mofoing is going better than mine so far –
    no blog posts as yet but I am managing to Instagram!

  2. Welcome to Vegan MOFO- I dropped off my posts after Thanksgiving, and only starting to read what people post now. So you know, no judgement. Mental health is better right? But I love making puree soups! They are so simple and you don’t need to worry how you chop the veggies.
