I recently found Vegan Lunckbox too and am fascinated by it. I've never had veggie cheese. Does it taste like the real thing or is it it's own thing entirely?

Most veggie cheese tastes nothing like the real thing (and most really suck), but I came across Veggie Shreds in Vons a few weeks ago. To me it tastes like a very mild cheddar cheese, and also comes in a monterey jack and cheddar blend. Now I wish they would do a sharp cheddar version as well. I'm not vegan, but I am lactose and wheat intolerant, so I'm always looking around for these kind of products...

I served this as one of three soups at our wedding! It's always been a staple in our house. The other two soups were Hudson Valley apple soup and Italian wedding soup. I thought the gypsy soup would come in third, but it was the favorite! Everyone loved it, even the carnivores!

we are getting lots of snow in the Southern Tier of Buffalo & this soup sounds perfect for today. Thank you!

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
