Once again we have to give props to our local library for ordering a book we requested. This time it was the Real Food Daily Cookbook. I had seen other bloggers mentioning this book and I had flipped through it in bookstores; now I'm anxious to try more recipes from our borrowed copy. The first thing we tried was the broccoli soup with red pepper crème. It's a fairly basic soup with broccoli and spinach, but the red pepper crème really makes it pop. It's a snap to make too - just buzz a roasted red pepper, 1/4 c. raw cashews, 2 Tbs. soy milk, 1 Tbs. lemon juice and 1/2 tsp. salt in a food processor until smooth and creamy. There are some interesting seitan recipes in this book too so maybe we'll try one of those next.
