    Yum!! The veggie wrap looks great, especially while we still have the bounty of fresh local veggies at our farmer’s markets and produce stands.

    The soup looks good. I have made a soup recipe from Kim’s Everyday Wholesome Soup where she uses cooked cabbage blended with other vegetables to give the soup texture and flavor. In this recipe it looks like she’s doing something similar with the cauliflower.

    I look forward to trying the recipe.

    These recipes are great for someone that is ready to try the plant base diet. The Deluxe Veggie Wrap sounds real good and I believe the kids would like it too, very easy to make. Thanks for sharing all of them.

  6. The sesame noodle recipe sounds good. I have used kelp noodles in a recipe in the past. They can be purchased at most health food stores.

    Kelp noodles are made from the jelly-like extract left after steaming edible kelp. They are made without the addition of grain flour or starch. Kelp noodles have a crunchy texture and are low in calories.

    These are some great recipes for anyone that is trying to change the way they eat. I would love to try making this soup Cream of Cauliflower Soup. I have heard a lot of people use cauliflower in the place of mash white potatoes. These are some great recipes. Thanks!

    The cream of cauliflower soup is one of my favorite recipes. The cauliflower makes the soup creamy without having to add non dairy milk. The spices make it taste delicious.
