This Greek Hearty and Creamy Agvolemono soup by Maria Koutsogiannis is so delicious made vegan! It is creamy, packed with veggies, and so warming! The flavors in this soup are simply perfect.

The creaminess of the rice and miso really marries the soup while the miso and nutritional yeast add a certain earthiness and warning effect. All in all, this soup is well balanced, filled with flavor, and really easy to whip up when you’re in a pinch!

Amanda Nicole Smith‘s chunky Sprouted Kidney Bean Chili is made with sprouted beans and fresh spices and herbs for optimal digestion. Hearty kidney beans, sun-dried tomatoes, carrots, celeriac, parsnip, onion, ginger, and garlic make up this warming comforting bowl of chili. If that’s not already enough flavor, you’ll pack it with even more punch from chili powder, paprika, fennel, fenugreek, bay leaves, curry leaves, and a few other little goodies. It may be a long list of fresh ingredients, but when everything stews together, it’s heaven in a bowl and well worth the extra effort. When you get just the right texture and mix of spices, it’ll feel and taste meaty, even though there’s no meat.
