Here's my take on the Vitamix's Holiday Squash Soup (veganized, of course!):
- 2 cups veggie broth
- 2 cups pumpkin (if it's not fresh, make sure it's BPA-free!)
- 1 shallot (or 1/4 onion), peeled
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or hemp milk or soy milk)
- 1/4 medium apple, seeded
- 1/4 tsp dried sage
- 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
While prepping, I was blasting John Williams' main themes from Jurassic Park (one of my all-time favorite movies for so many wonderful reasons). As I type this post, I'm blasting Josh Groban's "You Are Loved," and I'm reminded of when my college roommate, Genevieve, and I would blast this song in our apartment and sing it at the top of our lungs. What's better than a warm cup of soup, Josh Groban serenading you, and fond memories of a wonderful friend? Happy December!
P.S. Not tuned into Packing Lust? My former college roomie, Genevieve, has a fun blog to follow: www.packinglust.com. There's some reading material for when you're sipping on soup!
