|Mixed Nut Milk|
I like trying new products and today at the grocery I found two new types of non dairy beverages. One is a mix of almond, cashew and hazelnuts. The other is a sunflower milk. Most of these 'milks' taste the same to me. However, the sunflower had a distinctive smell and taste. I used it to make a Wild Rice Soup. Onions were sauteed in vegetable oil and flour was added. Then I added veggie stock, a little at time, to make a thick sauce. This was added to a mix of already cooked wild rice, almonds and shredded carrots. Then the sunflower milk was added with a little sherry and parsley. I cooked it until it was thick.
|Wild Rice Soup|
A side salad of spinach, mango salsa, and black olives with thousand island dressing and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast accompanied the soup. We had some tortilla chips for a little crunch.
