Creamy Spinach Soup. vegan, glutenfree

This is the soup hubbs asks for again and again!. Simple, quick and perfect with any meal.

Serve it with some garlic rolls or pita bread, some gf chickpea crackers or celery.





















There is a mild spice from a little Kashmiri Garam masala, which contains Black cumin, Cassia, Coriander, Cardamom, Clove and Tellicherry Black Pepper and some cream from the cashews. This soup gets ready in 15 minutes with just one boil. No cooking for hours. You can also serve it raw. I dont digest most things completely raw, so a little heat does the trick for me.

Hubbs is still on vacation till the end of the year.. So it still is vacation time for me too.. Just sneaking in a short post..:) How are you all celebrating the new year!

  1. […] November 1 is World Vegan Day! To celebrate the day and to also connect with vegan bloggers online, today I am participating in Virtual Vegan Potluck with 105 bloggers from 14 different countries! You can find more about the Potluck here and The first Potluck here. Thank  you Annie, Somer and Jason for setting this all up. I am bringing Whole grain Gluten-free dinner rolls to this Potluck. And since technically we are still in Pizza month of food, the dinner rolls have elements of Pizza in them. Some sun-dried tomato, herbs and capers and you have yourself some Pizza dinner rolls. With Oats, cooked millet, garlic, sundried tomato and capers, these make a wonderful side with any soup and are flavorful enough to eat by themselves. Serve warm.The pictured rolls have not risen to their full potential. Let them rise 5-10 minutes more. I was in a hurry since the light was fading quickly and I was frantic to take some decent pictures. These are dense as well as airy and soft. You can’t see from the pictures, but they squish quite nicely just like a regular bread roll. Also, check out my all time Top 10 reader fave round up posted yesterday! Naans, Pizzas, chickpeas and more:) Hubbs loves Sundried Tomato. Me not so much.. So he ate most of the rolls toasted and slathered with earth balance, with this 15 minute creamy Spinach Soup. […]
