Veggie Soup with Turmeric Root & Beyond Meat HOT Italian Sausage - Vegan Plant-based Recipe
Updated: Apr 30
Plant based cooking has many different connotations. This gluten free vegan soup is a great recipe to try.
It was a rainy day and I was craving a cozy soup. I had some turmeric root and decided to try inventing a new soup with this root.
Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it can relieve pain, it can improve liver function, and even aid your digestion. I thought, well HELLO...let's cook it.
Be careful when chopping the turmeric root. It stains your cutting boar, your fingers and anything else it touches. I suggest placing a paper towel on the cutting board and using a fork and knife to cut the turmeric so your hands don't get dyed orange.
"The spiciness from the plant-based sausage and the earthiness from the turmeric broth bring coziness and warmth to your stomach and soul."
A little goes a long way. I store my turmeric in the freezer to keep it fresh. I cut the root into 1/4 inch thick pieces and then place the extra in a ziplock bag or container in my freezer for future use.
I love these Rapunzel Vegetable Bouillon broth cubes. I used to buy them at Whole Foods any any Healthfood store. Sadly they are no longer available at these stores, and I have to buy them online.
