VeganMofo Italian Wedding Soup & Vanilla Cookies with Chocolate Sprinkles

Italian Wedding Soup
Italian Wedding Soup is a delicious hearty soup that "marries up" pasta, meat and greens.  I make my Vegan Wedding Soup with vegetable broth, chopped endive or spinach, chopped carrots, onions and garlic, 2 cups of vegan white wine, olive oil, 1/2 cup of lemon juice, sea salt & pepper, chopped parsley, small ring shaped pasta and vegan meatballs.  If I don't have any vegetable broth on hand I'll use Rapunzel Vegan Bouillon and for the meatballs I'll use Nate's Italian style.  Nate's are precooked and usually frozen so after all of the vegetables and the ring shaped pasta are fully cooked I'll drop the vegan meatballs into the broth and let them reheat right in the pot of soup. Bring the pot to a boil again for 5-6mins then serve.  I'll make vegan parmesan by putting Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour, sesame seeds, garlic powder, dried oregano and lemon juice in the food processor and process into a course meal.  Put a bowl of the Vegan Parmesan on the table, it is a great companion for your Wedding Soup.  Don't forget garlic bread!

Vegan Vanilla Butter Cookies with Chocolate Sprinkles
Chocolate "Let's Do Sprinklez" are perfect decoration for Vegan Vanilla Butter cookies.  Chocolate "Let's Do Sprinklez" are a little pricey.  One box has two very small pouches of sprinkles but they taste great.  Traditional chocolate sprinkles tend to be both tasteless and loaded with dyes and chemicals, besides every other brand I found contained Confectioner's glaze which is not vegan.  Chocolate "Let's Do Sprinklez" is Confectioner's glaze free, all natural and made with real Chocolate.
