Earth Balance Soymilk, Cobbler, Potato Leek Soup

Earth Balance was very generous and sent me two coupons to try out their new line of soymilks. I was very excited to try them because I love Earth Balance products and use them often. Currently, the Earth Balance soymilk is only available at Whole Foods. I decided to get one regular and one chocolate.  Both of them were great! I absolutely loved the chocolate Earth Balance soymilk. It wasn’t chalky like Silk soymilk. This soymilk was very smooth and tasty. I tried out the regular soymilk in both cooking and baking and had excellent results. I’ve bought Earth Balance soymilk several times now without a coupon!

First up is a Blackberry Peach Cobbler from Ripe from Around Here by Jae Steele. The recipe calls for “buttermilk” so you add vinegar to the soymilk. It curdled up right away. The cobbler topping is a biscuit style topping with cornmeal.  I used fresh peaches I bought at my local farm market. This cobbler is FANTASTIC.  It has the right amount of fruit to topping ratio. My parents came out to visit last month and my dad ate three pieces in one day! My mom, who usually never has two pieces of anything, ate two pieces. I even froze some of the cobbler and according to my dad, it was still tasty after being frozen and then thawed.  I just can’t say enough good things about this cobbler. It was that delicious.

Next, I tried out the Potato Leek Soup from The Rabbit Food Cookbook by Beth Bee Books.  This soup was simple to prepare and very tasty. I think it tastes better the next day so the flavors can blend together.  I really liked it reheated the next day for lunch. I used the regular Earth Balance soymilk in this soup. I think the recipe calls for 1 cup.  Plus, I love any excuse to use the retro striped soup mugs I found at an estate sale.

    Hi Emmy,

    I tried to comment on other posts, but your comments were closed. Im going to start blogging again soon. I’m back living in Cali( Robin and I are divorcing, we’re legally separated). I love the Spice House too( and their cinnamon). I’m going to Milwaukee for Thanksiving( and taking a side trip to Madison) so I’ll be sure to check out that diner you mentioned. Where did you find that little plate in Madison? I had a platter like that in Canada, but Robin kept it. I hope things are going well for you.

      Hi Randi,

      Sounds like you’ve had a rough time of it. Hope things are going better for you. I think you would love Monty’s in Madison. I can’t wait to go back there. I can’t remember which thrift store it was but I went to Goodwill, Saver’s, and St. Vincent De Paul. It was one of those three. Hope you find some good stuff and be sure to blog about it 🙂
