The Chef: Liz
The Menu: An utterly phenomenal potato-leek soup. Liz wowed us with this rich, homey main course that was definitely more of a meal than our typical miso. She added cashew cream (the recipe for which can be found in The Conscious Cook—we're slowly tapering off cooking from this book!), rosemary, and cherry tomatoes to the pot, and the savory results were nothing less than sensational. Liz also whipped up a lovely salad and roasted some Brussels sprouts with corn, which rounded out the hearty meal.
The Goods: It's another exciting week at the VNHQ! To carry over some of last week's giveaway fun, we are proud to announce that MacKenzie has won our last copy of The Conscious Cook!
