Lauren and John are the charming couple behind this channel and not only will you get sucked in by their personalities (you feel like they are cooking just for you!) but the food photography, recipes and styling is just fantastic! In fact, I was well into about 6-7 videos before I actually realized it was a Vegan channel! The food looks that good! They are definitely re-defining Vegan cuisine.
This week our theme was creamy soups that don’t actually use cream. Yep, no dairy. You must try Lauren and John’s fantastic looking Cream of Mushroom Soup I just love the idea of adding the spinach to this!
Below is my recipe for a Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup Recipe using cauliflower and potato to make it silky smooth and give the “illusion” of a decadent cream-based soup.
Watch our collab below!
