I've been spending a lot of time watching the Food Network lately. And while there aren't many vegan recipes made on their cooking shows, I have been thinking a lot about how to make them so. Take this basil and pea soup by Giada de Laurentiis, all you have to do is replace the butter and cream with soy alternatives and skip the cheese garnish. We made it for dinner last night and it was really good. More of these to come and feel free to pass along any advice about freeing the animals from omnivorous recipes.
