I am obsessed with the Isa Does It cookbook. I have made probably half the recipes by now and they are all so quick to prepare and delicious.
It’s kind of amazing.
I was on a Shroomy Hot and Sour Soup kick for months. I even bought a case of Chow Mein noodles (I love you Amazon Prime). One of the first recipes I tried was the broccoli cheddar soup and I was pretty much blown away by the taste. I have always loved broccoli cheese soup and I never in a million years would have thought a vegan version would come so close. It is so tangy and rich while still feeling comforting and maybe even healthy. The other day I saw a recipe for Pretzel Bread Bowls and I knew I had to try them. Mostly because when I’m watching General Hospital on Hulu they play the Panera Bread commercial 65,000 times an episode so I’m constantly reminded that bread bowls exist.
I don’t think I realized how delicious this would be. The pretzel bowls came out of the oven steaming and solid and just beautiful. Although the recipe for the pretzel bowls was a little time heavy I put it together on a freezing Monday night without much fuss. The soup takes about 20 minutes so it’s easy peasy to cook up while the bowls are baking.
And then you get to experience the utter bliss of pretzel bread soaked in broccoli cheddar soup. A combination I won’t soon forget. Or maybe I will so I’m blogging it so I remember it always. Because it was really worth the time. Maybe I’ll even convince myself to make bread bowls for the upcoming world wide vegan bakesale. If you’re lucky that is.
