Bowl: Zuppa Toscana (similar to the Olive Garden Soup)
Plate Clockwise from top: 65% Cacao Chocolate Chips, French Bread, Apples, Pumpkin and Chocolate Chip Cookie (made by my neighbor….she rocks!!)

OMG…this soup is SO SO SO good!!  I LOVE it!!    It is really good with the bread, too.  The Apples were so crunchy, juicy and yummy….mmmmm.    I was actually oogling the cookie recipe this afternoon….so, I was just tickled pink when my neighbor’s daughter brought us the cookie surprise!! 


Zuppa Toscana – Similar to the Olive Garden Soup

 

2 Cans Vegetable Broth, divided
1/2 C. TVP
1/2 t. Old Bay Seasoning
1 Tbl. Liquid Smoke

1 T. EVOO
1 onion, diced
1 tsp.garlic, minced (I used the garlic in the glass jar)

8.5 Cups Water
1 Vegetable Bullion Cube
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper (to taste)
6 potatoes diced (I used golden)
1/2 cup vegan creamer or half and half/soy milk (I used regular heavy cream…making it vegetarian)

Spices (to taste): garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt, salt and pepper

Directions:
Open one of the vege broth cans and measure 1/2 Cup…put into small pot…add the Liquid Smoke and Old Bay Seasoning and bring to a boil.  Add TVP, stir and remove from heat.  Cover until ready to use.

Saute onion over medium heat until almost translucent; add garlic and cook for 1 more minute.  Add broth, water and spices and bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to medium high and add potatoes and cook until fork tender.

Reduce heat to medium low and add TVP and cook until heated through.  Make any adjustments with spices at this time.
Just before serving, add the cream and allow it to heat through. 
Great with a green salad and some crusty bread, or as a meal on its own!
