If used, choose vegan butters free from palm oil. Keep recipes away from pets due to toxic ingredients (fresh dough, onion, garlic, mushrooms, jackfruit, vegan meats/cheeses etc). Never give leftover croutons (or any stale bread, crackers etc to garden birds or wildfowl as they could choke (fatty foods like butter or grease can also negatively affect waterproofing and insulation of feathers).
Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup (Crowded Kitchen) is very tasty, and easy to make. This creamy soup is topped with a swirl of vegan yoghurt and za’atar olive oil.
Carrot Miso Soup (The Simple Veganista) uses the Japanese condiment to make this very nourishing and salty. Miso is also good for digestion. Includes ginger and protein-packed tofu.
