Instructions
  1. First, start by chopping your cauliflower, celery, potatoes, onions and shredding your carrots.
  2. Then, just scrape those vegetables into a big pot with about 2 tablespoons of oil. Toss those around on medium heat for about 4 minutes. Just to kind of soften and blend the veggies together a little bit.
  3. Next, add in your vegetable stock. About a full 32oz carton of Vegetable stock. I just added the extra by that was left over. Cook the vegetables in the stock about 20-25 minutes. You want the vegetables to be quite tender.
  4. While that cooks, measure out the other ingredients. Add the garlic powder, dried thyme, sea salt, ground black pepper and nutritional yeast to a small bowl and set aside. In another small dish combine the apple cider vinegar and lemon juice and set that aside. I like to chop my frozen broccoli into smaller florets as well while I wait for the soup to cook.
  5. Next, scoop a little at a time if needed into a blender and pulse until smooth and creamy. Repeat until the entire batch of cooked vegetables has been transformed into a beautiful creamy consistency.
  6. Be careful when blending hot soups in a blender. Remember to let out enough steam in the beginning, you don’t need to burn yourself or cause a unwanted mess.
  7. Also, you could use an immersion blender and just blend everything together in your pot. This is a much easier process.
  8. Next, transfer the puréed soup back into the pot. Add in the spices and nutritional yeast, the apple cider vinegar and lemon juice and your choice of non-dairy milk. Stir well to combine.
  9. Finally, add in your broccoli florets and stir to combine. Cover and let it cook about another 15-20 minutes to heat it through.
  10. Serve immediately and add some crackers, croutons or chopped Avocado.
