Welcome to the Vegan Family House

We’re Davie, Lucy, Daniel and Charlotte, a vegan family living in Scotland. We’ve been vegan since 1997 and the Vegan Family House website has been online since 1998.

The recipe collection has grown quite large in that time. There’s lots of soups, mains, cakes, smoothies and chocolate, Christmas and Easter pages. You’ll also find food related posts and extra recipes on the food category of the blog.

Cream of Broccoli and Nettle Soup - vegan
Nettle soup love…

Cream of Broccoli and Nettle soup method:

🥦 Fry off an onion and some garlic. Chop and add: a head of broccoli, a potato, a stick of celery, a little fresh sage, parsley and lovage. Cover with water, bring to boil, turn down to simmer. Add several young nettle tops and a handful of cashew nuts. Once potatoes are soft, season with salt and pepper and blend just enough to leave some texture.

Serves three or four people.
