Hi my friends- did you have a nice weekend? I have to say- but I had a great weekend. Good food, music, friends, and family. I’m feeling pretty happy these days. This is my first full week back at work since the holidays and I taught 3 classes today. I wasn’t exactly looking forward to the work week- but all of my classes were packed! It always makes me really happy to see so many people interested in yoga. I know some of it is part of the new years rush, but it still makes me smile.
On Friday night I made a delicious dinner that you must recreate! Super easy and good for a night in with a glass of vino (and watching the Sopranos. I know- I’m ten years behind.)
Sweet potato bisque
This soup is super easy. I used two cans of organic sweet potato puree and added water to my desired thickness and one veggie bullion cube, garlic, rosemary, and some parsley. I used an immersion blender to mix it all together and simmer over medium heat. You can also add salt and pepper to taste!
This is the brand I used- I got it at whole foods.
The second thing I made was gluten free veggie pizza. Now I have made this before and you can really make it however you want. When I made the pizzas before I made vegan ones using vegan cheese but I don’t do much soy these days so I stop using that. You can see that post here.
I made the dough according to the directions and I did use egg this time. Toppings were broccoli, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and homemade pesto (I don’t use they vegan cheese anymore, just parmesan). It was pretty tasty and PBJ was impressed. I think the cauliflower pizza crust is next on my list.
For the record- this is PBJ:
