I know I’m leaving out some stuff so feel free to add on with your own ideas, tips, types, and how to’s!
Vegan version of my first and moste ancient Ghibli inspired soups.
Heat 3 tbsp olive oil or your preferred cooking oil in a large soup pot. Chop three celery stalks, 1.5 sweet onions, 6 smallish carrots (you can adjust amounts of veggies to your preferences) and sauté for around five minutes or so on medium heat stirring occasionally until the onions start to become a little translucent. Add 3 cloves of minced garlic, stir and cook two minutes. Add around 3 cups chopped red potatoes (I really never measure, just use what you’re feeling, I’m estimating I threw about 3 cups in) and cook stirring occasionally 5-7 minutes.
Add 3 tbsp flour, just enough to evenly coat the vegetables and potatoes, cook for another minute stirring it well.
Add six cups vegan ‘chicken’ broth or vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
Once it’s boiling throw in half a pound of gnocci, cook two minutes or until the gnocci start floating to the surface.
Add 1.5 cups unsweetened coconutmilk soup base and one can of corn.
Season with 1 tablespoon dried basil (or more if you like, I tend to go crazy with the basil), 2 bay leaves, a TON of black pepper, and quite a bit of salt because, potatoes.
“River Phoenix was often mocked in his day. As the vegan environmentally aware actor who made careful film choices based on his personal politics, he was seen as a little wacko, an eccentric still suffering the psychological effects of growing up in the cult, Children of God. Now he seems ahead of his time. Not only that, an exemplary figure to be revered more than ever, both for his film work and his messages. […] He remains an inspiration for those of us looking for a new masculinity. This wasn’t a man set out to compromise what was in his heart and mind to fulfil any expectations of what a young man must be”
