“Jonnae the Queen” Jonnae Thompson creates a delicious masterpiece on today’s LunchBreakLIVE. Stand-up Comedienne, Actress, Model and Vocalist, you may recognize her from Tru TV’s “Laff Tracks,” Revolt TV’s “Funny AF,” or on various internet platforms, such as “All Def”! Today she is making us an unbelievably delicious-looking Vegan Zuppa Toscano Soup!

All of these ingredients combined make an unbelievably good soup!

Jonnae who is originally from San Diego came to the Woodland Hills area to attend college. She had been somewhat of a pescatarian for a few years. Thanks to a push from fellow schoolmate and JaneUnchained favorite, Sean Hill, she decided to take the leap and go vegan about a year ago! Now, Jonnae enjoys curating private, 3-course plant-based dinners for both vegan and non-vegan audiences under her moniker “Alternative Creations”. More recently, Jonnae has had the opportunity to intern with the legendary plant-based chef Lauren Von Der Pool and work as a production assistant for Vegan Exchange LA formerly known as Vegan Sundays She is also working very hard on her entertainment career and performs at comedy shows regularly. Check out her act on her YouTube channel and the links below!

The soup is almost as lovely as these two queens Nika and Jonnae!

Today Jonnae is making us the most scrumptious soup we’ve ever seen! This Zuppo soup looks too good to be made at home, but Jonnae shows us how! The soup includes potatoes and Beyond Meat Sausages she crisps to perfection in her air fryer. It also has a myriad of savory spices, including an exotic sweet black garlic. To make the soup over the top good and creamy, Jonnae adds coconut cream. When it’s perfect and ready for the tasting, her good friend Nika King, from the show Euphoria on HBO, glides into the kitchen to taste it. She can’t believe how good it is either! Everyone watching the show is drooling away over this recipe! Lucky for you it’s right below! Scroll down to try making this soup at home tonight with Jonnae’s recipe!
