So I have neglected this blog for an entire year and I have realized, unfortunately, that I miss adventuring. Now while I am stuck on campus finishing off my senior year, there is no reason for life to be boring! So I have decided to pick up this blog again in honor of my favorite type of adventure--cooking!
I love to cook and talk about food so I hope you feel inspired to try some new recipes! Everything here is vegan, sugar-free and absolutely delicious (I promise).
Oh and please email me any time with your adventures (kitchen related or not)! Email me at

End of the Week Curry Soup

This is what I make when I am running out of fresh produce and everything is about to go. It is basically a high end version of 'Kitchen' only it is so good I get overly excited when I realize I have the stuff to make it. It is inspired from Karina Kitchen's Moroccan Coconut & Chickpea Soup.

End of the Week Curry Soup

  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, cut into thin slivers
  • 1 large yam or sweet potato, peeled, diced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded, cored, diced
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, diced
  • 1 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 15-oz. can beans (chick pea works best, but I've made it with kidney beans)
  • 1 15-oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • A pinch cinnamon, cumin, ginger, and cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Now throw everything in a pot and cook, covered, over medium heat until the vegetables are tender, about thirty minutes.

Add just before serving:
1 cup packed spinach or greens
Hot red pepper flakes (optional)

Slowly stir while the greens cook down. Now serve!

This works great with some fresh bread or a scoop of thick yogurt. Enjoy!
