Midweek Munchies (lots of soup)

Hello friends! So this week's midweek munchies isn't all soup, but involves a lot of soup. These are from back in winter, when a bowl of soup for lunch seemed perfect. Now we are in summer, and a bowl of soup sounds horrifying!

But first up, this lovely slice of asparagus quiche that I got at a vegan bake sale.

Soup number one is this discounted packet of chickpea and vegetable soup. And it was fine. Nothing spectacular, but hit the spot.

Again on the non-soup front, a new brand of vegan biscuits (what we call cookies here in Australia). Monte Carlo's are an old favourite, with raspberry and vanilla filling. These ones were very nice! Much fancier than the old Arnott's ones I used to eat in my pregan days, and much easier than making them myself.

Vegans were excited about this brand of soup this winter, which has several vegan flavour options. Most of those options have chilli though, this was the only one that didn't. It was a bit bland, so I added some nutritional yeast, which improves most things.

Cauliflower Cashew Soup

I bought these sweet potato bites to serve with some salad I was making. They were nice and tender, and very easy to heat up. A nice change from falafel, and a quick and easy addition to dinner.

And finally, some tomato soup. Heinz Big Red Ready-To-Serve tinned tomato soup is vegan (make sure you get the regular one, not the creamy one), and it is my favourite tomato soup. The flavour is spot on what I want when I crave tomato soup, it is so easy to make, it is perfect served with a grilled cheese sandwich.

    1. I loved the quiche, it is always fun being able to buy something like that.
