VEGAN PURÉE DE MARRONS

[Vegan Chestnut Purée]

...I wasn't sure if I'd ever complete this recipe...actually I was sure I'd complete it but unsure if I'd actually eat it...

...because...

...years ago...when I was in France...I got quite sick after eating Marrons Purées...and I remember the taste quite well...
...but I forged ahead and put some chestnuts, celery and herbs in a pot with some vegan bouillon...in water of course...
...this store brand of beef flavored bouillon is accidentally vegan...
...my sweet sissie told me about it years ago...
...next...you pass your chestnuts through a food mill...
...and you're left with this mush...smelling fragrantly of chestnuts and herbs...
...add some vegan butter...
...and vegan cream...it's kindof like making mashed potatoes...
...and it's exactly how I remember it...sweet...creamy...earthy and very rich...
...I actually ate that small spoonful on my plate between the biscuit and the potatoes...and I didn't get sick...I know...that's not a very glowing recommendation for this recipe...

Substitutions:

Homemade Vegan Butter
Vegan Cream...I used Coffee Rich Creamer
