Well, in retrospect, that was a lot of pepper! Sunday night we made a simple Split Pea soup with biscuits, & dumplings. Also had some leftovers for lunches during the week. The soup was made simply, with spices, carrots, water, and dried peas. We let it simmer for about about an hour and a half.
We sampled some french toast from Mom's Vegan Kitchen at the VegFest NW last month. They are based here in Portland, so it's easy to find mixes at Whole Foods, Food Fight, etc. but they are also available from some online retailers, listed on the website. We tried out the mix for both the dumplings (dropped in the soup) and the biscuits (baked.) Both were quite yummy.
