Caribbean Vegan: Split Pea Soup! Plus a giveaway for your very own copy!
Here you have some delicious split pea soup from the recently released Caribbean Vegan. I love this soup. It incorporates two other recipes from the book: one for delicious vegan ham and one for a wet Bajan seasoning. The Bajan seasoning is particularly versatile, and its fabulous pungency took over my house and drowned out today's dreary rainy day.
Can you imagine how flavorful this is? Taymer Mason suggests stirring it into tofu scramble, and I am going to try that next. But really, you could use it anywhere.
I tested for this cookbook, and it is wonderful. There are fantastic recipes throughout, plus Tay is funny and spends a lot of time giving you a real feel for the islands. The photos are gorgeous. There's no vegan cookbook like this one. So, obviously you need your own copy. And you're in luck, because The Experiment has been kind enough to provide a copy for today's giveaway!
