Baby, it's cold outside | One To Nothin'

Baby, it's cold outside

It got down in the 40s last night!!! I love when the seasons change, and in Florida they're not too drastic, but it's still enough to get me super excited. In celebration of this colder weather, I came up with this veggie pasta soup (which happens to be sugar-free AND vegan). I used a combination of this tomato, vegetable and lentil soup recipe, this very veggie soup recipe and this vegetable pho recipe (both of which are from one of my favorite food/running bloggers!). But when it really came down to it.. I used what I had. Which was:

  • Vegetable broth (about 4 cups)
  • Water (about 6 cups)
  • 100% whole wheat fusilli noodles (1/2 package)
  • Extra firm tofu (1 packaged, chopped)
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli florets
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Red lentils
  • White onion
  • Green onions
  • Baby spinach leaves
  • Celery
  • Culantro
  • Garlic (chopped, 6 tsp)
  • Soy sauce (3 tbsp)
  • Ginger powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Black pepper (1 tsp)
  • Cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
All I had to do was chop up all the ingredients, cook the pasta & put it aside, and add all the other ingredients into a big ole pot. I put a lid on it, brought it to a boil (stirring occasionally) and then lowered the heat to let it stew in its own herby goodness for about 30 minutes before serving. I thoroughly enjoyed it -- it definitely seemed to help my nose & throat, which have been giving me some trouble lately AND I got to feed my mom and boyfriend with it, so success. Also, it makes lots so I still have left overs to eat tomorrow!

Now I'm off to enjoy this lovely chilly weather!
