Panzanella and Pizza Soup
John and I have been in the mood for salads lately and I have never made Panzanella (Tuscan Bread Salad) before. I found a recipe in Vegan Planet. I used a loaf of ciabatta bread, toasted, crust removed, and diced, along with olives, a yellow pepper, and cherry tomatoes cut in half. The dressing is a shallot, garlic clove, red wine vinegar, sugar, oregano, salt, and olive oil processed until smooth in a food processor. We piled this onto chopped lettuce and devoured it!
From Vegan Italiano, I made Pizza Soup to go with the salad. It was so yummy! The base of it is pizza sauce so it really does taste like pizza. It also has mushrooms, onion, and green pepper along with Italian seasonings.
