Le Creuset Cast Iron Goodness

This Le Creuset is my favorite pot to cook vegan soups in. To be honest, I had to do a little thinking on what I was going to write today.  Nothing was shouting out at me, so I figured I'd do a little snooping through my pictures, kitchen, closets to see if I could find something that I wanted to tell you all about.

Turns out, I found something fabulous!  The other day I decided I needed to get off my butt a bit more and start cooking regularly again (I've gotten a little lazy this summer).  Avi had a cold and Richie claimed to be coming down with something, so soup it was.  Out of all the things I cook, I've been told on more than one occasion, that I have a real knack for soups.

I went into my kitchen looking for some inspiration, but the first thing I wound up pulling out was my superamazing and all-time-favorite pot: my Le Creuset Round French Oven (I also have an oval and a wok).  For some reason it just feels like the right thing to make soups and stews in.  I've had it for a handful of years now and I have a good feeling that I'll keep it forever and ever (which is about as eco-friendly as you can get).

It turned out perfect for the other night as I had a cook-on-top-of-the-stove-and-then-pop-it-in-the-oven-for-a-bit type situation.  I also pulled out the wok to make some truffled cabbage to go along with the meal!  Everything was superyum and cooked to perfection thanks to my favorite pots and pans!

Here I am using two le creusets to cook a vegan dinner!
