During this time, when ingredients may be hard to find, we've listed some easy substitutions. -If you don't have carrots, you really can used any of your favorite vegetables. Try cauliflower, broccoli, red bell pepper or butternut squash. -Potato helps thicken the soup. If you don't have a potato, add about 1/2 cup cooked white or brown rice when pureeing the vegetable mixture. -If you don't have celery, fresh fennel is a goods substitute but does have a stronger flavor. You can also substitute 1 teaspoon (5 mL) celery seed; or 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) celery salt. -Use green onion or shallots instead of onion. -Use 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. -Instead of Pecorino Romano, use fresh grated Parmesan, feta, goat cheese or nutritional yeast. -Use 1 teaspoon (5 mL) dried basil instead of fresh basil. Or use any other fresh herb, like thyme, sage or parsley. Add 2 tablespoons (30 mL) to start as some herbs have a stronger flavor. -Use water instead of vegetable broth. -Use any Becel product instead of Becel Plant-Based Bricks.
