Starting Your Vegan Life

High Mountain Soup


By McDonald, T. | Date 12th of July 2020. 
This is a light meal that has a nice heat to it because of  the chilli powder.  The inspiration for this dish comes from the story of Jesus going up a high mountain with three of his disciples, Peter, James and John. Once at the top, Jesus is transformed and is seen conversing with Elijah and Moses. 100% vegan.
