It's already Secret Recipe Club  and this month my assignment was We heart vegan.

Brittany has many vegan recipes and finally I choose this creamy Tomato soup and really was wonderful.

We love at home  this type of soup.    Especially my daugther who is vegetarian:)

4 servings

1 tablespoon sunflower oil or other
1 medium yellow onion diced
3 garlic cloves diced
1 can crushed tomatos (28 ounce)
1/2 cup milk
3/4  cup of water
1/2 teaspoon salt + a pinch for onions
3/4 teaspoon italian seasoning (a mix of basil, oregano,thyme and parsley.)

fresh ground pepper to taste


In a large stockpot, heat the oil to medium heat and add the chopped onions.
Cook for a few minutes until lightly browned about 5 minutes.
Season with a pinch of salt and fresh ground black pepper.
Once cooked add the garlic and cook about one minute.

Move the onions and garlic towards the side of the pan exposing the brown bits hat have formed on the bottom of the pan.

Spooon in a little of the liquid from the can of tomatoes and scrape the brown bits up with a wooden spoon .Add the remaining tomatoeswithe the remaining ingredients.

Stir well and let this cook over low heat for about 10 minutes until the flavors have combined.
You can use an emersion blender and puree until smooth.

Orange blossom water brioches (Brioche a la fleur d'oranger)

I love brioches and here is other brioche's recipe, from Mimí of  her Blog Manger, I love Mimí recipes, simple and delicious and she is absolutely nice.

These brioches were amazing and perfect I love with some apricot jam:)


2 cups 3/4 plain flour (300 g.
2 eggs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 pack of baker's yeast (10 g)
1/3 cup + 1 tbs  butter (cubed at room temperature)
1 tbsp butter (for moulds)
1 pinch of salt
1/3 cup lukewarm milk 
2 tablespoon orange blossom water
2 tablespoon lukewarm water to dissolve yeast
1 egg for glazing 

Note: I use little moulds but you can use a traditional brioche mould or in other.

Dissolve the yeast in a small bowl with 2 tablespoon of lukewarm water. Set aside for 5-10 minutes or until it turns frothy.In a large bowl mix sifted flour, salt, sugar, yeast and butter. Add eggs, orange blossom water and milk gradually and mix well with a big wooden spoon. 
Start kneading until you get a smooth ball shaped dough, about 8 - 10 minutes.
Cover bowl with a cloth and leave to rise in a warm room about 3 hours or overnight.
Start kneading the dough on a non floured surface, just to to get rid of a few trapped air bubbles, about 1-2 minutes.
Line the moulds with butter and place the dough inside the moulds . Cover with a cloth again and leave to rise for about 1 
Preheat the oven to 180°c/350°F. With the help pf a brush,glaze the surface of the brioche with the egg.
Bake for 30 minutes. If the top starts brown too much, place a sheet of parchment paper to protect.
Let chill by a while but are lovely warm!
