Vegan Pizza Hot Pocket On A Croissant

This makes 2 big hot pockets. I eat about half of one. So this can serve anywhere from 2 to 4 people.

Provencal Red Lentil Soup

I made this simple soup last night and it was heavenly. Here’s what I did: I didn’t have leeks, so I substituted 2 chopped onions. I made up a mixture of Herbes de Provence following the recipe at the end, and at the very end, I pureed part of the soup using a hand-blender, trying to keep most of the carrot pieces intact. Also, I followed the regular directions, not the pressure cooker ones, because it was such a quick-cooking dish. Definitely a keeper.
