For those days where you just want a simple and utterly comforting dish at home. Not only is this Lila, Chop! recipe wonderfully nutritious, it's also very easy to make and fits into most low-carb, low-calorie, vegan, dairy- or gluten- free diets! The best part is that it's so versatile that with this basic recipe you can make almost any vegetable soup and serve it with any side salad or bread. I like to alternate broccoli and cauliflower as my main ingredients, but why not try carrot, pumpkin, or zucchini?

Pumpkin Seed Protein Bread Muffins

I discovered Protein Pow's low-carb and gluten-free recipe for Pumpkin Seed Protein Bread around the same time that I was putting this recipe together. So I baked these tasty little bread muffins and was delighted to find they went fabulously together with my favourite almond butter and even better with my skinny almond-cauliflower soup! Who doesn't like to dip bread in their soup?
