But before the soup round, just wanted to post this because it's SO PRETTY. Blended dishes take a lot of dressing up to look tasty for the camera, but this fiery redness is beautiful with the cilantro topping. I just blended jarred roasted red peppers and peeled zucchini. Salt, pepper, lemon or lime juice and a bit of zest. Keep adding to your liking, but keep it simple. The hard part with spreads anymore, including my favorite hummus and tzatziki, is that you need something to dip. Raw veggies hurt my stomach these days, and too much baguette fills me up too fast. I should slice them even thinner and toast for some crunch. I can digest woven wheat crackers. Multi-grain works. Pure flour crackers seem to turn to undigestible dough. Gross.

I honestly don't remember how I made this. It's not on my Best Dishes notebook on Evernote, so it might not be my favorite. I just remember being impressed with myself that I toasted coconut! I needed the soup to be creamier. I'm trying this one again.

I love this soup. I usually just add a can of pumpkin, a can of light coconut milk, and some brown sugar to taste. That's IT. Simple goodness. The side was just a bonus that day.

I like the sweet flavor of the corn with the bland but filling potatoes. I want to experiment with this to get some good protein blended in. Perhaps just some bacon. Bacon makes everything better!
