If you need a nut free version, I think sunflower butter will go very well.  I wanted to take the peanut butter chocolate flavors to the next level, so I swirled some peanut butter on top of these as well.  Not only are these slow cooker quinoa brownies easy to make, but they also come with a boost of healthy protein.  This recipe freezes well also.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

For the longest time, my husband has been wanting to make a cream of broccoli soup.  I wasn’t sure he could successfully make a vegan cream of broccoli soup.  He totally outdid himself with this vegan cream of broccoli soup! Despite the name, this healthy soup has no cream!  This soup is really easy to make too.  If you are a fan of soups, you may also like this post full of healthy soup recipes.

I used almond milk in my recipe, but you could also use full fat coconut milk for an extra rich texture.  Another option would be to top this with a cashew cream.  Yum!  This cream of broccoli soup is vegan and gluten free.  I added some nutritional yeast for a slight cheesy flavor.  I cooked this on the stove top, but you can also cook this soup in the crock pot as well.

Chickpea Vegetable Soup

It has been seriously cold here this week in Dallas.  So this Chickpea Vegetable Soup was in order.  This Chickpea Vegetable Soup is super easy to make.   You can make this healthy soup in your crock pot, or on the stove.  Either way works great.  This healthy vegetable soup came about when I discovered my peppers and tomatoes were starting to look a little wrinkled and soft.  I wanted to use them up so I made this soup.  I hope you enjoy it.  If you like soups as well you may enjoy this post.
