soup + muffins
Ahh yes the fruits of our labor! The rain has given us a bit of a break and we went blueberry picking again.. The kids begged for some muffins.. I used an old recipe as a base, but made enough changes that I think I can call it mine now.. It was a bit salty for me but hubby said he didn't get that .. And well, Emma had to be cut off.. She LOVED them! This would be my first attempt at using Stevia - and man its awesome! So these are fat free and sugar free!! And delicious!

1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup blue berries

Our soup doesn't really photographic well.. so here is Eli at the table..
Awww mom - soup again? That's what I heard as the kids shuffled to the table.. The soup recipe came from La Dolce Vegan pg 121 Cindy o's " chicken" & rice soup for the soul.. I was quite intrigued by the recipe as my dear hubby requested a break from beans.. eekk.. No Seitan in the freezer, kids don't eat tofu - what's a gal to do? This recipe calls for 2 tbls gluten + 2 tbl h2o and ya just cook the darn stuff w/ the soup.. Yes it was that easy..Who knew? And guess what? It really was tasty.. And there were no left overs, so I must have done something right.. I cut up the little seitan bits into small chunks reminiscent of canned soup.. I think if I made it again I would use noodles in place of rice.. cuz, that's just the kind of gal I am..
