Cooking from Scratch

This soup contains NO dairy, and yet it was creamy and delicious. The creaminess came from pureeing half the soup and adding pureed cashews to the mix.

We made this sauce in a slow cooker using all fresh veggies, even the tomatoes!

What a healthy sauce! I want to make it again soon!

In an effort to save money and avoid processed food with additives and other unwanted “yuckies,” I am determined to start making more things from scratch. My only dilemma is the lack of a food processor. So far, we have still been successful on a few things with our blender. Check out what we’ve been cookin’ lately: Creamy broccoli soup, Slow cooker veggie sauce, and Italian bread wedges.This soup contains NO dairy, and yet it was creamy and delicious. The creaminess came from pureeing half the soup and adding pureed cashews to the mix.

Ok, so these have a little Parmesan on them, but at least I used whole wheat flour in the dough!

 

Can't get enough of this delicious soup!

Here are some things I would like to start making from scratch:
 
Vegetable broth
Cashew cheddar
Salsa
Salad Dressing (all kinds)
Applesauce
Peanut Butter/Almond butter
Fruit spread
Almond milk
Various other sauces and spreads
 
Now all I need is a food processor!
