Here’s a simple, yet extraordinarily delicious, muffin that you can whip up and serve on your Thanksgiving table that will wow everyone who likes to have a piece of bread to sop up that amazing vegan gravy you’ll be serving.

Yippee! The weekend is here. I know…you’ve been running errands all day and the last thing you feel like doing it heading into the kitchen. You could reach into the pantry for one of those vegan canned soups…but honestly, (at least in my humble opinion) I’ve never eaten one of those things and subsequently raved that I just devoured the most wonderful, delectable soup.

I have another solution for you…homemade soup, made easy!
