I recently joined Twitter and I won a book from Eccorazzi, which is a "news and gossip on celebrities and notables in support of the environment and humanitarian causes." The book I won was Alicia Silverstone's new book called The Kind Diet, where "Alicia reveals how eating a plant-based diet will give you tons of energy, mental clarity, gorgeous skin and a renewed zest for life. Plus, it’s one of the greenest things you can do. Because it requires less fuel, water, and other resources, following a plant-based diet is a major contribution toward improving the health of our planet."
It is a huge step but I thought I would give it a try, while I continue to make meat for the carnivore in the family. It was just kind of crummy that while venturing on this new time that I had to get sick! Oh well. I guess it inspired me to make a yummy soup that took 20 minutes to prepare.
Sweet Potato and Broccoli Soup
2 small sweet potatoes, diced
1 1/2 cup broccoli florets
3 garlic cloves
4 Tbsp soy sauce
1/3 cup chopped parsley
Place sweet potatoes in a small pot and cover with water. Add the garlic cloves and boil for 10 minutes or until soft. Add the broccoli and continue to boil for 5 minutes. Add the parsley and soy sauce. Place all items in a blender and puree. Serve while hot and top with crackers.
