  1. this looks so yummy! i am not vegan, actually i am the complete opposite. but everyone in my family is. me and my dad are the only meat eaters but my sisters, mother, step father, and brother are all vegan and my mom cooks and its hard to eat things she makes because it is all so bland. i am going to give her this recipe

  2. That's crazy I wish I could convert my family to vegan! Hahaha! It's only me and my twin sister..everyone else in the family makes fun of us for it! I probably make this recipe once a's the best soup ever!!!
