Hi Catherine,

This soup looks fantastic! For some reason, I never think to use edamame as an actual ingredient- I just eat them alone. Must try it this way.

Oh, and as a vegan food blogger, I'd love to see what you do with a month of vegan! Your food is always so beautiful and tempting, it would be good vegan PR, for sure. =)

P.S. My blog is Where's the Revolution? I mention this in case you want to check it out, because sometime people mix mine up with "What do Vegans Eat?" a blog that is not mine, but that I contribute to. (Therefore, it's also listed on my profile page)

That's really nice.
Kind of lengthy on the ingredients (I have become SO lazy), but I adore the brilliant little teaspoons of pesto and tomato paste.
