Vegan Grilled Cheese and Dill Pickle Soup

Image
I have a lot of pickles in my fridge and someone on Instagram had mentioned dill pickle soup. I thought it sounded interesting but I didn’t look up a recipe.  I was using things I had in my house as I  haven’t gone grocery shopping for awhile. I added vegan butter, half an onion, 1 potato, a few pickles, and lots of spices to the soup maker. I used curry powder, dried parsley, smoked paprika, mushroom seasoning, salt and pepper. I turned the soup maker on and went to do a workout. The soup maker is still my favourite gadget.  I am always amazed by how good things turn out in the soup maker. I will make this soup again but I will use more vegetables next time to get a creamier texture.  I found this really good applewood vegan cheddar block from the UK at Save-On-Foods on sale for $8.99. I thought it was expensive when I bought  but the block lasted a long time and it melts great the best melting vegan cheese I have tried so far. You can see the cheese here on my second Instagram accoun

Vegan Noodle Soup





If you don't have a soup maker I really love mine. I bought it years ago it is a kettle with a blender in it where you just put the ingredients in press the timer and in 25-28 minutes you have soup. This recipe can be made in a pot but I made it in the soup maker.


 Ingredients 

Vegan Broth
1 Sweet Potato cut into pieces
half a white onion sliced
3 small carrots  (I was practicing with my spiralizer)
1 package smoked tofu
curry spice
pepper
rice noodles
additional water 
1 tsp olive oil


I had never used the carrot spiralizing tool before and I forgot I had carrots. I tried to use it on a sweet potato it didn't work so that is why this soup has carrots and sweet potato in it.

I found the soup maker works best if you use a little bit of fat in it which is why I added olive oil. Add the oil, onion, sweet potato, spices, broth and fill to the line with water.



Plug the soup maker in and select chunky for the type of soup. The alarm will sound in 28 minutes so you can go do something else. I used to come home from work put the soup on do a 25 minute workout and when the workout was done I would eat soup for dinner. I am trying to get into that routine but that is another blog post.



 I like smoked tofu crispy so I pan fried some of the pieces.


When the soup maker timer goes off add the rice noodles, non fried tofu, and carrots to the soup maker.

There is no short timer on the soup maker so put the lid back on set the soup maker to chunky. Set a manual timer for 3 minutes and unplug the soup maker after the 3 minutes is up.


I took the picture after I poured most of the broth into the bowl. After my bowl of soup I had noodles for the rest of the week.

Pour soup into a bowl and top with pan fried tofu. Enjoy.
