Vegan Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana. As That Sassy Vegan writes, “This soup used to be my jam in college. I missed it so much I decided to make a vegan version! It tastes just like I remember too!”

If you haven’t bought vegan sausages before, I would like to recommend Beyond Meat. For this recipe their Hot Italian Sausage would be spectacular!

And speaking of “meat”, have you seen the new movie coming out in September named “The Game Changers?” For anyone who believes in eating plants, and especially for those on the edge of deciding “do I or don’t I change to a plant based diet,” you have got to watch the trailer for this movie. I can’t wait to see it!

Try this wonderful version of restaurant favorite. Healthy, hearty and perfect for that lazy weekend when you want to watch old movies and have something warm and comforting to eat. Wrap up in a blankie, turn on the tv, and dive into a big bowl of Vegan Zuppa Toscana.
