Thai Tom Yum, Snowstorms, & Veganize It!

I had to order this Thai Tom Yum online because I haven't been able to find it in ANY of the stores I have been thru the last several months.  It's a vegan version of Thai Tom Yum and the brand is Dr. McDougall's.  I have to say - I am a fan!

It sure helped with the extreme cold we have experienced the last couple of days.  We had a back-to-back snow storm hit us with COLD temps.  Yesterday I don't think it passed the 15-degree mark.  When I was driving home it was 12.  Over the last 2 days, we have had between a foot and a foot and a half of snow so far.  Eventho I live in the snow belt I still don't like it. 


I've been doing a lot of thumbing thru my new vegan cookbooks as well as a lot of online research of recipes from different countries that I can try and veganize.  ANd speaking of Veganizing...look at my other new book!!  It has some really great ideas in there but there is a large fake meat chunk I will probably never do anything with.  I've also been able to collect a lot more flags on my flag counter which is really exciting!  HELLO to my newest visitors from the countries of Georgia, Albania, Cambodia, Armenia, Costa Rica, Libya, Mali, and United Arab Emirates.  I smiled when I saw newbies from Columbia, Djibouti, Timor-Leste, Serbia, Burundi, Greenland, Somalia, Algeria, Seychelles, and Palestinian Territory.  Plus my new friends from Malawi, Botswana, Ethiopia, and various islands including Pitcairn Islands, Virgin Islands, and Christmas Island.

  1. I've made the bacon mac and cheese- I LOVE IT! My husband wasn't the biggest fan of the coconut bacon though. I want to try the fake pepperoni- that is one of the few meats I miss.

  2. I think it is exciting to live in a country with snow because I can build snow sculptures but snowstorms are not fun.

  5. I'm visiting family back on the east coast right now and got caught in the snow, too. It's less than an inch, but for this honorary Californian, it's quite a sight to behold! I wish I had some of that tom yum soup to take off the chill.

  6. It's been cold and snowed here recently, but we didn't get nearly as much snow as you did! Hope you're keeping warm; glad to hear the soup helped!

  8. We here have an exceptionally warm winter; we are in summer clothes instead of winter coats, not a good thing at all (for agriculture). Hope your weather gets better soon.

  9. Vegan ramen is the best, I need some now to warm me up!

  10. Does the Thai Tom Yum box contain everything you need to make the ramen? I'm always on the hunt for a good ramen!

    1. Yuppers! Right inside the microwavable cup it has the noodles and there is a spice/seasoning packet tucked in there, too!
