Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 C Onion diced (1/2 a medium sized onion)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • ½ tsp Paprika
  • Pinch of Thyme
  • 2 C Cauliflower cut into florets
  • 4 C Potatoes cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 4 C Vegetable Broth
  • 1 C Carrots sliced to 1/4" thin
  • 4 C Broccoli cut into florets
  • 15 oz can Coconut Milk full fat in the can
  • 6 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

Instructions

  • Pour oil into a large heavy bottom pan. Heat over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent - about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, again stirring occasionally, cook for 1 -2 minutes. Add the spices and cook 1 minute more. If the onions or garlic begin to stick at any time add a small amount of broth.
  • Once the onions are cooked through, add the broth, potatoes and cauliflower to the pot. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes until potatoes are able to be pierced by a fork.
  • Remove half of the cooked vegetables and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the broccoli and carrots to the broth and cover. Continue to cook for 10 minutes more.
  • While the broccoli is cooking, use an immersion blender to puree the potatoes and cauliflower. Add the coconut milk and blend a little more until it is well mixed and smooth.
  • Uncover the pot. Add the potato mixture to the soup and stir together. If you want it to thicken, cook without the lid for up to 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in the nutritional yeast until dissolved. Serve immediately.
