Vegan Recipe Day

Vegan Recipes Made Today:
--Almond Banana Bread
--Smoky Paprika Tomato Soup

My first time ever blanching tomatoes.  That is a LOT of work.  I'm not sure it's worth it over just buying canned whole tomatoes.  It's nice to use fresh ingredients, but it takes forever and now my hands are all peeling off from digging in the ice bath and removing skins from hot tomatoes.  I made it worse for myself because I bought campari tomatoes so they were smaller -> more blanching -> more peeling.

Banana bread could have used more almond.  But it is MOIST for a recipe with no oil, eggs, or butter.  Might be even better than my vegan pumpkin bread, probably because it uses a big more sugar.
