  1. After reading your recipes, when I saw this, I thought of you-bet you will have a twist or two to make it yours. Judy Nation


    9 slices thick cut vegan bacon, diced .
    12 tablespoons butter
    2/3 cup all-purpose flour
    5 cups whole milk
    2 cups heavy cream
    1 cup buttermilk
    5 russet potatoes, baked, peeled and cubed
    1/2 cup scallions
    2 cups vegan ham, diced
    2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese (do not use already shredded cheese)
    1 cup sour cream
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper (not fine)
    Cook vegan bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Remove and set aside.
    In a large Dutch oven (7 quart) or large stockpot, melt butter over med-low heat. Whisk in flour until smooth (no lumps). Gradually stir in milk, cream and buttermilk, whisking constantly until fully incorporated and slightly thickened. Add potatoes and scallions. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, making sure to scrape the bottom.

    Turn heat down to a low simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Add vegan ham, bacon, cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper. Stir until cheese is melted. Serve.

    You can easily add more cheese to the top and place the soup under the broiler for 30 seconds to get that melty cheese look.

    [ As for me, skip the vegan and use the real stuff.]

  2. I love your focus on the environment. Tragically it seems all too few people of the upper US and Northern Asia are as fascinated with God’s creation. Thank you for you continuing efforts to help us cherish our lives.

    • Thanks Joel. We feel lucky to live on the edge of a city where almost in our backyard there are opportunities to walk along a river and through forests. But it’s also fascinating to see examples of adaptation as the city expands.
