Soup and Friendship.

vegan soup recipes

Cook with a friend.

Eat with a friend.

Laugh with a friend.

I sit here sipping Turmeric Ginger Tea with hints of licorice root, lemongrass and orange peels enjoying the company of my friend before I hit the books and study some more. There is something extra special about a friend who is passionate about wellness. The friend who enjoys spending Saturday evening roaming Whole Foods for organic sweet potatoes, organic kale, and organic brocolli.  The friend who has just as much fun creating new healthy recipes as I do. The friend who I can cook with, eat with, and laugh with all together.  It’s the social aspect of sharing late night tea and memorable conversations together and the uplifting spirit we bring one another.  I always leave her feeling just a little calmer and always with a smile.  This friendship is about relating to one another and connection.

Ahhh…but you came here for the soup, right? Here’s what Ashley of Bodhi Life and I came up with. It’s so simple, flavorful and delicious!!! We’re making it again this week. It’s now time to study. What a peaceful Saturday evening.  Soup and friendship.
