Cabbage and Curry Soup

The #3 most frequently asked question we're asked is, "What do you do with almond butter?" Our answer is honestly ... "EVERYTHING!" Seriously. We've tried almond butter on everything from brownies to scrambled eggs. While there is no end to our #toastlove, we adore giving you recipe ideas to try that you never imagined!

INGREDIENTS

Cabbage Soup

  • ½ head of cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup white or yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Or whatever other vegetables you have in the fridge!

Thai Green Curry

  • A friend recently gave me a great piece of advice: "If you need a deck built, call a carpenter. If you need a perfect soufflé, call me." He's a chef, so his basic point was if you want something done well, go to an expert. So, I used a pint of left over Thai Coconut Green Curry packed with bamboo, green beans, Thai eggplant, bell pepper and basil in this recipe. Use a curry from your favorite local Thai restaurant or, if you're a curry savant ... use your own (and share it with us!)
