View Full Version : what can S.A.D.s eat with soup instead of bread?

I want to serve raw soup to S.A.D. eaters, and they're used to eating bread with soup, dipping it in, and I can't think what to give instead. I don't eat dehydrated food, and don't want to serve it to them either, so crackers/dehydrated breads are no good.
I thought of thinly sliced aubergine (eggplant) but thats probably disgusting???? I know its not nice raw but I thought maybe dipped in bread it would be better?
But thats not the answer.
Anyone any better ideas?

what about dipping broccoli florets in?
or portabello mushroom caps?
or flat slices of cauliflower?

Well, since you won't do the cracker, raw bread thingy, then I would say the mushrooms might be good, depending on the soup. or just some fresh veggies,
You might try jicama, it is crispy, tasty, sweet, very mild in flavor, and you can get it huge, to make large pieces of bread.
I'd still go with the onion bread, or something like that, but if you don't want to do bread, then you only have the choice of fruits, veggies, greens or nuts/seeds

you might take some oat flour and some wheat berries, grind them, and then add a touch of oil and salt and agave' and make a flat bread, dried in the sun, that might work, I'm creating a tortilla recipe, and still working on it as we speak for this.

How about some artistically sliced veggies such as zucchini, summer squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, etc?

I don't know Bobbie, I mean in my humble opinion, if you are trying to entertain and serve food to SAD eaters, I'd think you might want to give them some dehydrated bread or crackers.
But, if they're used to eating bread or crackers and you clearly have your mind made up not to even give them the raw version of such, then why serve them anything at all with the soup? Just give them the soup with maybe have some shreds of carrots or parsnips, etc. floating in it and explain to them that you apologize that there is nothing available for them to dip into the soup such as bread, etc, but that the soup is very delicious and they won't need it (and make sure it's such). If it's a good enough tasting soup, then perhaps they won't even mind not having crackers or bread.

Hmmm cold soup/ room temp. with NO crackers. WOW are these your friends, really. Might not be the best way to proselytize...
Maybe great conversation will make up for hat's lacking on the table. Enjoy :D
