The lovely Kylie from Fellowship of the Vegetable has dragged me out from my hiding place and interviewed me on her blog. If you haven't visited her blog yet, you should go see the wonderful food and photos she shares. Every week she interrogates a fellow blogger, and I've found interesting new blogs after reading the interviews.
She's also hosting a giveaway of one the Vegan Military hats she designs. Go see.

Speaking of giveaways, Randi from Laughfrodisiac, won the Molskine Notebook giveaway I hosted last week. She was the first commenter on my giveaway post, assigning her the number "1" to enter into the random number generator. I was so surprised to see the number "1" pop up that I thought the generator wasn't working, and I hit it several more times to check. Each time revealed a different number so I knew that the first number to come up was the real deal. Now I'm wondering why I always assume the number 1 won't come up in a random selection. What a random idea.
Might as well continue to be random by including a couple of recent soups we have consumed. The soup pictured above is a pretty basic vegetable soup enhanced with Soy Curls. Unlike most soy protein products, Soy Curls are made with the whole soy bean, and nothing else. They are non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan. They are simple to use, pick up seasonings well and have a great chewy texture. Whenever I get an urge for something savory and chewy for dinner, soy curls comes to the rescue.
Another basic bean, grain and veggie soup, this one got upgraded with roasted brussels sprouts on its second night. Leftovers don't have to be boring or static — adding one new flavor or ingredient can make it seem like a whole new meal. Do you like to change up your leftovers, or do you prefer to just reheat and eat?
Full Disclosure: The tablet was sent to me for review. The Soy Curls were purchased by me. I was not paid to write about these products.
