blood of mannoroth bisque [green vegetable bisque]

blog_vegetablebisque_title
So I finally bit the bullet after years and years of saying “no” … I installed World of WarCraft for the first time a few days ago with some encouragement (a.k.a. friendly threats) from the lovely and amazing Kymba.

She has used her special powers of persuasion to not only get me to join WoW, but to also get my boyfriend to reactivate his account. Let me reiterate — this is my first time EVER playing WoW. As a result, I have no idea what I’m doing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m not new to MMOS, but I am TEN YEARS of content behind in WoW. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do! By catching up, I mean I have to go collect ALL OF THE MOUNTS I CAN!

This isn’t my first World of Warcraft recipe — I’ve actually made one before with guidance from Sha of Happiness — but this is my first WoW recipe as an official WoW player.

Kymba had suggested that I try tackling the Blood of Mannoroth as my first solo Warcraft recipe. The Blood of Mannoroth is an integral part of the lore of Warcraft, so it seemed fitting to turn it into a recipe!

UNIT COMPOSITION

  1. salt
  2. pepper
  3. 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  4. cup of spinach
  5. 1  1/2 cups of broccoli, chopped
  6. 1 1/2 cups of tofu
  7. 2 cups of almond milk
  8. 1/2 of an onion, diced
  9. 5 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  10. 2 leeks, roughly chopped

You will be blending all of the ingredients together, so you don’t have to cut them perfectly!

BUILD ORDER

Prep time for this recipe will take roughly 45 minutes. Cook time for this will be roughly 1 hour. This recipe makes about 4-6 servings.

OPENING

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°.
  2. Place your garlic, onion, broccoli, and leeks on a roasting pan. Season your vegetables with salt and pepper.
  3. Drizzle the olive oil through the vegetables. Rub the olive oil through the vegetables.

MID GAME

  1. Remove your vegetables from the oven and place them in a pot.

  3. Heat until the spinach has wilted.
  4. Take a hand blender, and blend the vegetables until smooth

LATE GAME

  1. Add in your tofu and remaining almond milk. Continue to blend until smooth.
  2. At this point, if the bisque is still too thick, you may need to add in additional almond milk or water.
  3. OPTIONAL: If you want to make a smooth bisque, you will need run the bisque through a sieve to separate the solids from the smooth bisque. Once you have the additional solids, blend them once more and re-add them to the bisque. Continue this step until smooth. This may take an additional 20+ minutes.
  4. Bring the bisque back up to medium heat.blog_mannorothbisque_boiling
  5. Eat!

And that’s it, you’re done! GG WP!

Now, drinking this vegan Blood of Mannoroth may not give you blood lust or cause you to become a minion of the Burning Legion, but it is good for your health! Since it’s full of delicious green vegetables, this creamy bisque is both delicious and nutritious. A great start to your New Year! 🙂

Hopefully I’ll catch you in Draenor! If not, maybe we’ll clash swords (or in my case, dinosaurs?) in the Arena. 😀 HAPPY HUNTING!
