Creamy broccoli soup : vegan

Are we carnivore or vegetarian by nature?…. ‘Drink soy milk, no, soy is bad for you. So is Tofu. Yogurt and peanuts are evil’…>.<….I read so many books on this and still haven’t got the answer. It’s like a religion – you question and debate all day long but no one knows the truth….So what the heck, I’m going to eat whatever that taste good to me. I have a group of friends, one of them is a vegan, one of them is a vegetarian, one of them only eats chicken, and their boyfriends and husbands are meat eaters. So when they want to come over for dinner……I say….’Aghhhhh….Let’s go out!’
I eat meat  but I do enjoy good vegetarian/vegan dishes. I love sweetness of coconut oil based dish and my tummy feels good after eating them. Believe it or not, my favorite place to go out is either raw food restaurant (Alchemy arts center) or vegan restaurant (Adama vegan) and I eat gluten free toasts. HaHa 🙂 Enjoy this creamy, vegan, gluten free deliciousness! Now, if you would excuse me, I’m going to make my way back to the freezer and get a scoop of full-fat dulce de leche ice cream.

In Korea where I grew up, one of the biggest celebration is New Year’s day. Solnal is the first day of the first month of the new year and we make this  steaming hot, nourishing bowl of ‘Ddukgookk’ (rice dumpling soup. Eating the bowl of New Year soup on New Year’s Day means becoming one year older. Ouch.
Cheers to the year of Dragon!

Chicken Pozole

My husband and I went to Puerto Vallarta in beginning of this year. It was a totally random & spontaneous trip and I did not expect a lot. But it turned out to be the best vacation I’ve ever had. So many good food (I fell in love with mexican food there) and met some great people along the way. It was not the most adventurous trip but it was simply pampering & luxurious…I felt like I was a queen for a few days. We stayed at Villa La Estancia—One word: amazing! Oh did I say we did ‘all inclusive’ deal? It’s embarrassing to admit that we had 7 meals a day, ordered almost everything on the menu…..think I gained 3lb easily. But heck yeah it’s worth it!

I miss their food so much so I attempted to make mexican chicken pozole. It was easier than I thought and so delicious! Just need to get a few things at a mexican market and good chicken stock and you are all set to go!
