During the Holiday season: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas we're all going to be very busy buying presents, goodies and what not. It's easy to forget about, or only see a guest or family member on a restrictive diet as a nuisance or a weight bearing down heavily on you to sort out. Here's a quick and easy one to have at the ready which is easy to adjust depending on dietary needs.
Do you prefer making a soup out of broccoli than having it as a side vegetable, or is it just me? I do as you can add so many wonderful vegetables and nuts to it for a more interesting flavour.
Having it as a side vegetable, unless smothered in a 'creamy' sauce, just doesn't really light my fire. Since I know it's so healthy for me I try to eat it regularly so when I'm in a hurry I tend to just make up this easy soup below. Also as a snack afterwards I chew on a roasted walnuts with the cuppa of herbal tea.
So for that little indulgence when the chocolate longing comes knocking at the door, give them a try and it won't be long before they are one of your Panty-Go-To snacks, forever. OK if you don't like peanut butter or chocolate then you're not going to do that, but you know what I mean.
I fell in love with these beauties from the first day I made them. Partly because they are:-
A few weeks back after spending the whole cold yet sunny Saturday morning shopping with Tony (Carnivore) we popped into the National Library of Ireland (NLI) for a quick cuppa and a bowl of soup. We both like their cafe as it's so easy-going.
