5. Once the potatoes are tender & ready, dump in the cauliflower & stir for a few seconds. At this point, I love to take out a small cup of the veggies in free form with the broth & eat it. It's refreshing & delicious! Now remove the soup from the heat.

6. In small bathes, blend soup in your blender. Return puree into a new stockpot on the stove. (Before I vaporize the veggies completely, I like to take 1 - 2 cups of chopped, cooked veggies & set them aside.) Heat the pureed soup over medium low heat, add in the unblended veggies for awesome texture (or not if your children are frightened by them!).

7. Once the soup is heated, add in the nutritional yeast to your liking & combine well. I like to add salt & pepper individually since the salt tends to get swallowed up so easily - it's easy to over salt this dish (at least for me). The seasonings are super simple & PERFECT in this soup! IMPORTANT NOTE: This soup gets major hot spots when its reheating & pureed on the stove - watch out for your arms & face! I've been hit with boiling hot soup several times over & it's not fun!


Once soup is reheating on the stove, spread some delicious Earth Balance on two pieces of bread & toss in a grill pan or saute pan over medium to medium high heat. After a couple of minutes add some vegan cheese slices, we like Vegan Rice Slices American. Let the cheese get warmed then put the bread together & form your sandwich. Heat through for a few more minutes. Serve hot with soup & die happy!
