Spicy courgette & rice soup

vegan-100-everyday-recipesI picked up a bargain three vegan and vegetarian cookbooks from The Works in the Designer Outlet last week for under a tenner. One of them was Vegan – 100 Everyday Recipes which has 100 vegan recipes, each accompanied by a colour photo – and all for only £1.99. Today I made the spicy courgette & rice soup for lunch and I’m planning to make the smoky bean chimichangas for dinner from the same book if not tonight, then one day this week, as I want to eat less dairy and eat more vegan food but, sshh, don’t tell The Meat Eater.
