I've felt a little under the weather today, so I made up a big pot of lentil soup, full of all sorts of veggie goodies. I always add a dash of liquid smoke to the pot at the end of cooking it. I like the smokey + lentil combo.
I made some butter pecan ice cream! I just used soy milk + Earth Balance + sugar + vanilla extract + arrowroot +pecans. I have become very, very unprecise in making ice cream. I basically just dump stuff in the pot, bring it almost to boil, and then let it cool in the fridge until throwing it in the ice cream maker later on. Sometimes you just have to forget everything you ever learned in science class about being exact. On a side note, I really love this site, dedicated to vegan ice cream. I wish she updated more!
