It’s almost always raining in Vancouver. But sometimes, like today, it feels never-ending with the fog and the cold. Days like these make me feel like my entire life is a damp rainy day. On days like this, I make warm, hearty soup.
This recipe uses the sausage found in my Basic Seitan post from yesterday. You could also substitute it for a premade vegan sausage (I like the Tofurkey Kielbasa).
Mmm lacinato kale. Kale is secretly the reason I became a vegan. My Dad saw me eating this “weird, hippie food” while visiting them and bought me a vegan cookbook as a Christmas gift last year. Thanks, Kale! And Dad, he was a big part, too.
This recipe is just about fool-proof. Try it on your next rainy day!
