    Just wanted to stop by & comment about your amazing ebook! Already tried the creamy tomato soup and it was super simple & Super SUPER SUPER delicious AND it was filling! Been vegan for exactly over 1 year before that we use to consume Panera Breads creamy tomato soup with negative consequences (dairy is truly scary, yikes!) When my husband and I first started dating, most brunch dates consisted of Panera Bread's tomato soup with a fontina grilled cheese. So for us to stumble upon this recipe means so much to us. Adding this recipe to our meal routine and not afraid to burn it out because we won't, it is that tasty! Thank you for sharing your talent y'all truly have a special gift. Kudos :-)

    I recently had to go on a rather extreme heart-healthy diet for medical reasons. Many of the foods you guys prepare, coincidentally fall nicely into this category. Your freestyle Fridays were extremely inspirational, so thanks! I do however find it extremely difficult to obtain this kind of produce whilst travelling around in my country, away from the big towns - so kudos to you for managing to keep it vegan in the most remote places over the years. Would love to see more of your favorite recipes and tips.

    just made this recipe, you killed it Eamon (and bec!!). So so tasty, glad to have taken a ride to flavour town. Love these vids, cook book is great but something about Eamons cheeky jokes and Becs lil giggles make the videos the BEST way to indulge in your recipies! Maybe a patreon that sends out recipie vids?? I know tons of work go into these and that would be a great way to monetize. Xx -Logan

    Thanks for the fun and informative videos. Looks good! What percentage of your cookbook recipes are Tofu or other soy base? We have a soy allergy in the house so don’t want to waste my money but would be interested. We can substitute soy sauce so not concerned with that...

    Can't go wrong with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy. Have you ever tried Morel mushrooms? They can be a little pricey but worth it. I like my plate just like Bec, big old crater of potatoes filled with a lake of gravy. Uber comfort food! Love you guys! Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    I’m not totally vegan so to see mashed potatoes made with anything but real butter seems sinful, lol! Having said that, I loved the video and both the taters and the gravy looked amazing. I love mushroom gravy and make it often so now I’m really craving it. I seriously don’t know what’s funnier; Eamon’s sound effects, faces and made up words OR Bec’s amusement at both 🤣😂🤣😂. Good job, guys!

    For the mashed potatoes you can just add unsweetened soy milk till you get the consistency, tastes great that way! (If you’re avoiding oil)

    I had to winterize my van, how do your pipes not freeze? I also had to have my vitamix, how much power do I need? I've asked this question a couple times, maybe you don't like sharing that info? I can only use it when plugged into shore, it would be great to know how much power I need. Thanks! Food looks great! Merry Christmas! 😊🎄 Traveling through Ontario, and on my way to Alberta! Woohoo!

    @Gabrielle Yes, I know they get many comments. Lol I said that I had asked the question about the power for the vitamix before. I also realized that I'm in a campervan, my tanks are under my van, I have less control over insulating my pipes. Their pipes and water tanks are in their van, big difference. Dying to find out how much power I need for my vitamix though....🤔
