Vegan + Omnivore = Broccoli “Cheddar” Soup + Chicken and Sausage Baked Ziti
While I am now officially in Veganland, my hungry bear of a husband is most definitely not. We are learning to compromise so that I don’t feel like I am killing animals in his name, and he doesn’t feel like he is subsisting on oatmeal and nutritional yeast.
Thus, I agreed to cook something for him tonight that has meat in it for fear that The Bear might go on strike if I didn’t. We compromised and I made a yummy Broccoli “Cheddar” vegan soup from thedailygarnish.com and I made a modified Weight Watchers chicken apple sausage baked ziti for the Bear.
This is the baked ziti for the Bear. However, I did not tell him that I mixed real cheese with Daiya (50/50) hopefully he won’t notice!
Here is my big cup of vegan Broccoli Cheddar Soup. I already had a cranberry kale salad from Whole Foods with some peanut tofu, lest you think I don’t eat enough. In fact, I was too hungry to stop to take a picture of the Whole Foods deliciousness.
