Did you ever have an experience in the kitchen where you just said "Wow. This is why I cook." ? Creating this recipe (vegan, gluten-free, fat-free & less than 200 calories in each creamy, delicious bowl) was like that for me. It was snowing outside, and I was bored. I was craving a thick soup. I threw a bunch of things in a pan and...voila. I truly believe that this one of the best recipes I have created so far.
This recipe proves to me that I am not just a kid messing around in the kitchen. I am improving and learning every day. I'll admit that it's not gorgeous, but what it lacks in appearance it makes up for in taste. Enjoy.
